This should be a fairly sound rebuff to those who think that when “teh Left” argues that we – and governments in particular – shouldn’t discriminate against a religious group, we somehow have to tolerate discrimination just because it’s by members of that group:
Ofcom has ruled that Islam Channel, a London-based broadcaster, broke the broadcasting code for advocating marital rape, violence against women and describing women who wore perfume outside of the home as “prostitutes”…
The broadcaster, which was fined £30,000 by Ofcom in 2007 for a series of breaches, also broke impartiality regulations for broadcasting one-sided coverage of international affairs and the Middle East conflict.
Group A should not discriminate on the grounds of sex, gender, race, religion etc against group B; and group B should not discriminate on the grounds of sex, gender, race, religion etc against group C.
It’s really not that complicated. I don’t know how so many commentators could be honestly confused by it.
