Demonstrations

Over the last few years we have had all sorts of demonstrations, violent and not. They have mainly concerned cartoons depicting a 'prophet', Jerry Springer The Opera, the new UK law making it illegal to discriminate against gay people.

We have had no demonstrations about 7/7 or 9/11. None about the abuse of children by priests, none about the genocide taking place in various countries.

It seems to me that those who have demonstrated are self centred. They only get upset if their precious ideas are not held up by all. It seems they only feel the need to demonstrate when it is personal to them.

I respect any one's right to believe as they wish. Don't ask me to respect the belief though.
