Police have shot a man who attacked an officer with a hammer outside the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris. The man shouted "this is for Syria" during the attack, the interior minister said. Prosecutors have opened a terrorism investigation.
I'm liberal and conservative. Also centrist. And non-aligned. But 'latte-lefties' get their knickers in a twist when anything is mentioned that is somewhat critical of Islam. Not Christianity, they abuse that viciously. It is like a veil of confusion descends whenever someone triggers a core tenet of 'tolerance', that is we must praise people from 'exotic' places. Perhaps in the hope of getting some exotic cock.
This is not specifically targeted at others in this thread, but I am speaking generally. I applaud the idea of respectful dialogue. Just that dialogue may naturally divert into places that some are uncomfortable with.
