Honor Killings Not Honored Here

A Muslim father is accused of killing his own daughter because she wanted to divorce the man he'd arranged for her to marry.

In Georgia. So much for respecting the cultural practices of some people.

As British governor to India Charles Napier explained to the locals back in the day:

"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours.

But this would require recognizing that the greatest danger to civil liberties in the world today comes not from the United States, but from a medieval tribalism that's still murdering people

Muslims... blacks...
Gotta love all that "rich ethnic diversity".
