Flashback/Update: Police Arrested Christians For Leafletting In Dearborn Just Last Year

Gabe's post on Dearborn attempting to repeal the first amendment, to protect Muslims from the incivility of challenge to their religion, must be read.

And this isn't the first time. Maetenloch covered the Dearborn police arresting Christians charged with the crime of proselytizing their religion last September.

Technically, the charge was "breach of the peace," by which everyone understands they expected Muslims to breach the peace and to avoid this decided to cancel the constitutional rights of Christians.

The intellectual swells chuckle at us when we say that there is a campaign to impose sharia law in the US. How silly.

Yes, how silly. They're not imposing sharia; they're just imposing tolerance, respect, and civility.

It's just that -- coincidentally enough -- the new code of tolerance, respect, and civility has an odd manner of tracking, sura by sura, the precise contours of the Koran's major prohibitions upon dhimmis.

Now, you may say, "Wait, I don't like that I'm now under more government compulsions and prohibitions than I was before."

But you're not looking at the big picture. In the big picture, some people are now actually under fewer compulsions and prohibitions, so it all just balances itself out.

Okay, maybe you don't like the fact that some people now have the freedom to break the law with impunity. But why be angry just because someone else has a few extra freedoms?

You're pro-freedom. Aren't you?

All coincidence, I'm assured. It just keeps coming out that way. It's not sharia because we're calling it something else. It's not sharia; it's merely sharia-compliant.

Wait, that sounds like someone's being forced to comply with someone else's religion. Okay, take two: It's not sharia, and it's not sharia-compliant. It's just sharia-coinciding.

Okay. I guess I'm convinced. So long as we call it something else, though. You promise me on that, right? Because that's all that's important to me -- not the actual reduction in constitutional rights or the imposition of a foreign religion, but just that we call it something else.

As long as we call it something else, hey, I've got no complaints.

Always remember: It's not that you have less rights than someone else, it's just that they have a few more; and it's not that you're a second-class citizen; you're still first class, same as ever.

It's just that some are first-class-plus.

Just look at the positive side of things and it will all be okay.

Thanks to David, who I met yesterday, for reminding on this. And to Maet too, who told me, "Hey, guess what? That was actually covered on the blog."
