    Your comment was bigoted, and you have a track record of making similar comments in the past. I find that unacceptable.

    There is nothing ironic about my statement, at all.

      ...I have been around for a very long time, and I have no such track record. You simply do not like my point of view which is that this child's murder was the inevitable result of a twisted, fundamentalist view of morality and my view that we need to be alert for any signs of our heading in that direction: such as the murder of Dr. George Tiller.

      I believe that the subjugation of women is one of the danger signals and that certain expressions constitute the subjugation of women. Although there is a contrary viewpoint, I am not alone in this view at all. It is being debated by reasonable, liberal people throughout Europe. Socialists!

      Societies, or pockets of society, that subjugate women send us down a slippery slope. The subject of this diary is the result.

      Take care you don't cultivate a reputation for suppressing views you don't like under the guise of calling them out as "bigotry" -- just the sort of moral superiority you caution against our assuming.

      Always error on the side of more speech. Not less.

      If you hate government, don't run for office.
