    Tell that to the women stoned to death, or victims of 'honor' killings, those covered head to foot, who cannot drive cars or go out without escort for fear of punishment under sharia law. This is justice!? This is tolerance?! How does this advance 'the dignity of all human beings"? The man has lost contact with reality--if he ever had it.
