Is this really what multiculturists want to support?

In what Mark Steyn calls the multi-culti world, all cultures are created equal. So far, the multi-cultis have been remarkably silent about honor killings and female genital mutilation. Now Andrew Sullivan takes them to task for their silence about public executions of gays. I'll just say that, while the Bible mentions killing gays, we as a culture have decided not do so. The problem isn't with religion per se, it's with the spin a culture places on its religion. It's always a slippery slope when a culture chooses to pick and choose from its religious books. For example, American Christians have given up killing gays and burning witches, which is a step down that slope, but only the Episcopalians (so far) have also given up on Christ's and God's divinity. Still, civilized modern societies need to take tentative steps on that slope, and just have to hope they have a consensus as to the stopping points. What distinguishes Islam is its adherents refusal to begin the task of removing their religious practices from their current 7th Century methodology. Hat tip: Galley Slaves
