Be afraid, be very afraid. Here is what happens when political correctness runs amuck. Prosecutions are occuring now under Australia's new "religious vilification" statute . . . apparently, criticizing the Koran is now off-limits -- and reading from the holy book is not allowed in court, even in one's own defense. As the article puts it cogently, "Criticizing is not inciting."

It's another reminder why people of faith and of conservative values have to fight tooth and nail against any similar infringements on the First Amendment. Not only are such codes wrong -- they will always be selectively enforced against those who disagree with whatever is the politically correct shibboleth of the time.
