If it's illegal, then they should be throwing these thugs in jail. If it's legal, then leave them alone and change the law if it's really that important to them. Thier lack of action on this issue is my concern. When the gov't is so intimidated that all they can do is tell the Mullahs to "please be quiet", then oh so moderate muslim nation seems to be pretty much as bad as the more radical ones.
Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
