Now, about those OTHER ideological murders ...
In this morning's Blogging Tory news, numerous BTers are taking a perverse delight in the possibility of honour killings in Kingston -- sort of a "I told you so, nyah, nyah, nyah" attitude.
In unrelated news, when one brings up the topic of relentless violence against, and murders of, abortion providers by members of the Right, well, um, that's different because, well, it is. Now let's get back to talking about those bloodthirsty foreigners, shall we?
UNINTENTIONAL IRONY: Author Mark Peters above -- who so sanctimoniously mocks others' religious beliefs -- that would be this Mark Peters. Probably the last person who should be engaging in comparative religious wingnut analysis. I'm just sayin'.

I'm little confused by what Mark's ringing denunciation of honour killings is supposed to mean. He seems to be under the impression that they're allowed under the multiculturalism act, or something.
A murder was committed. In Canada, we don't permit that. We arrest the murderers and prosecute them. Being Sicilian, Muslim, or Colin Thatcher doesn't get you off the hook.
So what's his point?
Yabbut if you're Colin Thatcher you're sentenced and in a couple of years get sent to a minimum security facility that has a golf course, to ensure that your rehab program works and you can, you know, go back into politics.
But what does it all mean, people? What does it all MEAN!!
What would be the defining characteristics of a murder that is NOT an honour killing? Aren't they all, really?
