  •  the issue is not strong religious convictions (6+ / 0-)

    The issue is the political will to enforce the law, even when it might be controversial.

    •  Yeah, the law isn't enforced as much as it should (0+ / 0-)

      because we have this great respect for people with religious ( christian) convictions, even those that are grossly misguided, and dangerous.

      Hence the "blind eye" to these extremists.

      If these were islamic folks trying to bomb abortion clinics,...... believe me, there would be far less "understanding".

      Edwards puts healthcare reform on the table in a very credible way and is tough enough to make HR 676,....the ultimate goal, achievable.

        There is a long history here, and it has everything to do with abortion, and little to do with how law enforcement agencies view religious people.

        Yes, its true that if there were Muslim antiabortion terrorists, that would certainly push people's buttons. Your 'too much respect for Christian religion' claim is misplaced. After all, when a crime is committed and no one knows who dun it, there is no pass given because of religion. Its primarily an issue of the priorities of criminal law enforcement and what I call "the abortion exception." Which is simply, if its about abortion, its treated differently -- by everyone.
