Cultural relativism, good. Moral relativism, bad.

Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and swords and beating drums, burned pictures of a British teacher Friday and demanded her execution for insulting Islam by letting her students name a teddy bear Muhammad.

Many in the protesting crowd shouted “Kill her! Kill her by firing squad!” (Associated Press)

Of course, Sudan is the same country where the Darfur genocide has been going on for years.

Land mines, shmand shmines. When is Canada going to take the lead on a global issue like this?
