Tolerance Does Not Require Cultural Relativism and Political Correctness 

Neo-Neocon expresses beautifully a sentiment I'd venture many feel about politically correct commentary and Islam. Those who forcefully argue that we must be especially culturally sensitive about Islam are either fools, cowards or the bad guys. How many culturally insensitive comments are made daily in the liberal press about Evangelicals, Jews and Catholics, to name a few? Yet those comments don't give rise to violence or murder, do they? Yet make an intellectually sound comment or critique of Islam, and the next thing you know, you have a death sentence hanging over your head - please note Theo Van Gogh's rather culturally insensitive murder after he made a movie about it. Or the dozens of similar death sentences issued for writers and critics of Islam.

Where is the MSM outrage there?

Sometimes, you have to fight for your own team. The sensitive people on the other side aren't going to do it.
