Those who don't respect the rights of others

It seems that all you have to do is mention "respect" of others, whether it be their religious beliefs or their human rights and you get attacked.

A couple weeks ago I posted: "Respect The Religious Beliefs of Others" and I got a very nasty comment that contained a link to an antireligious site.

Yesterday I posted "Respecting The Rights of Others - Human Rights" and this time I get a mocking comment from someone who (according to their profile) just joined Blogger - I guess to make their comment on my site. As if Human Rights were a joke. Ask someone in North Korea or Pakistan if Human Rights are a joke. Ask someone who survived the Holocaust or the Ethnic Cleansing in the Balkans if Human Rights are a joke.

The bigoted idiots who attack the idea of respect for others, who attack the idea of tolerance for different viewpoints, are too stupid to realize that they are putting themselves in danger. If Human Rights are lost then these clowns will be the first to get thrown in jail or lined up against a wall and shot by some fascist who doesn't want any expression of opposing views.

We can't afford to ignore the rights of anyone. Suspend one man's rights and you suspend everyone's.

Hey Jim,

I tried all the links in this article and they all work. Was there a particular one you had trouble with?

Grahame said...

That other link you give is excellent. It leads to "Church of Scientology - Human Rights Publications"; a set of online books on Human Rights.

I tried it with both IE7 and Firefox.. There seems to be nothing to download. I have no ad blockers on.. I can't get any of the pdf's at all...

Just letting you know..

Thanks! You are right, the links are broken. I've emailed the address that is given on the "Contact" page of the site.
