Life in Jonathan's world is so wonderfully simple -- there are good people, and there are evil people:
Pim Fortuyn, a Dutch politician, was murdered by an Islamic extremist 5 years ago today. His death was later followed by Theo Van Gogh, also murdered by a Muslim in plain view. Both men were critical of Islam and its extremist tendencies; they paid for that criticism with their lives.
Here, let me play with that just a bit:
Dr. David Gunn, an American doctor, was murdered by a Christian, pro-life extremist 14 years ago. His death was later followed by Dr. Barnett Slepian, also murdered by a Christian, pro-life extremist in plain view of his family. Both men perfomed medical services that were perfectly legal under American law; they paid for that service with their lives.
Reads just about the same, doesn't it?
