"But there can be no true religious coexistence within a culture as long as one sect feels duty bound to cower."That's good. That's very good. Too many Americans/Christians feel the way to best reach across the aisle is to fall on our hands and knees and grovel; to dispense with our cherished traditions and ideals in the name of coexistence. As any adult knows, you may get a sort of half hearted friendship with someone who is happy to be the dominant person in the relationship, but you'll never have their respect.
It's telling that when we seek to ban or censor in the name of liberal tolerance, it's often for groups who themselves have not called for such restrictions. As story after story comes from various parts of Europe about the need to eradicate all references to Christian thought, mostly in the unspoken name of Islam, it's interesting that Muslims often come out and insist they want no such thing.
Of course, like many things, it's actually part of a revolutionary movement to eradicate the Christian foundations of Western culture. Those calling for censorship of Christian expression in the name of tolerance most likely just want censorship. They simply have to find a reason that sounds justifiable, as all tyranny in history has had to do. But kudos for Mr. Rogers for calling a spade a spade, and seeing the ludicrousness behind the idea that we should be afraid to say Merry Christmas when referring to a celebration of that December 25th holiday.
