Open Thread: Religious Tyranny versus Freedom



I know which side I'm on! ;-P

That's not "freedom" as the secularists define it Tommy.

No nose and tongue staples, no parrot spiked orange hair, no lip tattoos, no needle notched forearms, and she's still got her bikini on

Tommy said...

Well, that's how this secularist defines it!

:-)

But I realized, for the sake of balance, I really should have a counterpart post up for my lady and gay male readers.

Might ask your wife which picture she prefers...

Tommy said...

I think she would prefer the Jessica Alba picture too. My wife has not desire to have to walk around in a niqab.

Well, my point was...do you think your wife would rather you look at models in bikinis, or burkas?

There is a difference between freedom, and license

Tommy said...

It's about more than my freedom to look at Jessica Alba silly. It's about women having the freedom to walk about in public without being robed from head to toe and being harrassed by the "morality" police if their clothing is not sufficiently modest.

My wife does not mind me looking at women in bikinis as long as it is just that, looking, and of course it is done discreetly. I can't tell you how many times my wife will say to me "That woman is really pretty, isn't she honey?" to which out of courtesy I will reply, "Who? Oh her? I guess she is a little bit."
