This is what 'zero tolerance' brings to light: the inability or unwillingness to differentiate between a violent image and a Christian one.How perverse that the same country that punishes a child citizen for a drawing of Christ on the cross will reward foreighn terrorists with the protections of due process. Our republic is crumbling.
