To be clear- there is nothing wrong with having manners. I will continue to hold doors open for people- it has nothing to do with being PC or trying to show people how 'cosmopolitan' I am. I am being literal here. Not using analogy.
There needs to be an understanding that altruism, whether reciprocal or not, isn't automatically a display of or means for pursuing 'political correctness'.
Nope- never said they were. But Terry Jones is.Well he may be, I don't know. But I do know that there was more than just one individual demonstrating against the Mosque. Polls showed (and still show I think) that something like 60% of NYC folks oppose it. Are they all racists and bigots? Or maybe they just understand the concept of the victory Mosque.
If you are going to place the proposed building of the 'victory mosque' in a binary against a Christian who protests, Terry Jones seems to be the best choice in consideration of how the events were portrayed in the media.
but really- there are no absolutes here.
I wouldn't personally consider Derek Fenton to be a bigot based on the available information, but I would hardly call burning a Quran in public an attempt at dialogue.
