Have you noticed how the liberals, including this newspaper, preach tolerance and sensitivity but only when it pertains to their ideology or agenda? The Register's recent cartoon making fun of people opposed to Buckeye Cablevision's decision to air the Al-Jazeera Network underscores my statement.

The cable company told me it wanted to present Americans with a "different perspective" to the news That means a Muslim network by Muslims for Muslims with their bias against the United States and pretty much humanity. I have since cancelled my cable service with Buckeye and expressed my outrage over their decision. If you agree this broadcast is unacceptable in this country, call the cable office and be heard. They are forwarding all complaints to the head of marketing. This is in no way racist, ignorant or paranoid.

In Minneapolis, cab drivers at the airport are refusing to transport passengers with wine, seeing eye dogs or anything else that offends "Islamic Law." A checkout person at Target, in the same city, refuses to handle pork or bacon for the same reason, and six Muslims just sued USAir after they were removed from a plane after behaving suspiciously. If these Muslims are provoking incident after incident, knowing that officials are afraid to confront this nonsense, because our politically correct atmosphere, even if it puts the rest of us in danger. Talk about tolerance--what if a Christian cabbie refused to transport a gay person or someone wearing satanic symbols on their clothing, because it is offensive to them? You would see a lawsuit by the fringe groups and ACLU before you could turn around. They would be accused of bigotry, racism or of being a "hate monger."

Seems to me Christians are the only group not entitled to their convictions any longer in this country. I believe this taunting of American culture by the defiant Muslims in Minneapolis might have something to do with the fact that our first Muslim Congressman, Keith Ellison, who was elected last November, is from Minnesota. He is being strangely quiet on this controversy. Going back to my opening statement, we need tolerance towards Christians that stand against radical Islam, instead of being ridiculed for it.

I hope the Register and Buckeye Cable enjoy their terrorist network.
