I loathe cultural relatavism.

I don't care what you're culture is, what you're religion is or what you're philosophical ideology is. If you do a practice that is harmful or an unwarranted restriction of a persons rights, and if this can be clearly shown through the use of logic, reason and evidence then I will condemn it at every single opportunity. I have no issue with the parts of culture that enrich life, such as art, music, food, dance, architecture etc. But the moment something is overtly harmful, an instrument of segregation, an unwarranted restriction of rights etc then you will find me in opposition intellectually.

I agree 100% with your post and quoted it because I think it deserves it.  I'm tired of the people making excuses for the way some Islamic countries and people act by saying that we either don't understand or worse that we're the reason (both of which are condescending and insulting).

Anyone would sound like a jerk if they said,"Hey! You know what? Your the reason why this all happened." Thank fully, I've never really met anyone who gave me such an ignorant answer.

What I tell everyone is that there is more depth to behind a person's decision than merely just stating its wrong or right. Then the question of what is right or wrong comes to play and how our perception of morality is built and displayed. And does our perception of equal treatment or morality defeat theirs? Are we better then them just because we were raised a couple thousand miles away? Tough questions to answer.
