Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Charles Krauthammer - Tolerance: A Two-Way Street - washingtonpost.com

"..."How dare you say Islam is a violent religion? I'll kill you for it" is not exactly the best way to go about refuting the charge. But of course, refuting is not the point here. The point is intimidation.

"...As I said. No sense of irony."

So says Dr. Krauthammer. Yet he seems totally unaware of the irony inherent in his own column. He alludes to Christendom's having dropped it's warlike attitude and becoming a more peaceful religion than Islam. But this relative peacefullness is more likely a consequence of the Enlightnenment and the dropping of Christianity as the 'raison d'etre' for western civilization. But even after this 'enlightenment' Christianity clung like a 3 yr. old to it's mother's leg to every military and pseudo-military endeavor of the West.

And is Dr. Krauthammer oblivious to the adoption of, and pandering to Christian interests in this White House? Georgie's own claims to be in contact with God, and Jesus as his favorite philosopher? All this while he doles out millions of taxpayer dollars to Christian groups and courts Christian fundamentalist leaders and their followers? Does the Dr. remember W's own claim to holy war aginst terrorism? Is the good Dr. aware of the rise of fundamental Christianity in this country and even Europe? Cynical neocons are all too ready to utilize the "useful idiots" of the Christian political movement for election day victories.

Oh, the irony is as thick as the 'Armor of God' in this column.

I call Charles Krauthammer "IRONIC-WANKER-IN-CHIEF" for Sept. 22, 2006.
