Reader comment on: Canada's New Blasphemy Laws

It is really not much different than all of the other laws put into place in the West, especially those relating to transgenders, gay marriage, minority groups, discrimination, women's rights and so forth. As they say, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease".
The Muslims are demanding many absurd things. Perhaps it's time that the Christians, Jews and other religions rise up and demand the same absurdities. Tit for tat, as they say. If the same laws applied to all religions, then nobody would be allowed to disparage the beliefs of others in any way, including the Muslims attacking other religions. They would then be bound by the same laws, and be punished in the same way. It is evident that laws will not be enacted unless someone speaks out, loudly if necessary. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
Let's be honest. The Muslims are getting all the new laws enacted because they spoke out. They complained. Has any huge group of people complained/protested regarding the crimes now being committed against the Jews and their synagogues, or of Christians being threatened or women raped? Has there been a protest specifically against that, involving tens of thousands of people? No. Time to get noisy and ensure the rest of the free world hears of it. The squeaky wheel...
Because governments are catering to Muslims, everyone needs to rise up and demand the same every time Muslims demand new laws. Unfortunately, it is time for the silent majority to get very noisy. It is time for the majority to also claim discrimination. Otherwise, we lose.
