Krugman calls for a firm stand by moderates against religious extremism
Paul Krugman writes:
What we need - and we aren't seeing - is a firm stand by moderates against religious extremism. Some people ask, with justification, Where are the Democrats? But an even better question is, Where are the doctors fiercely defending their professional integrity? I think the American Medical Association disapproves of politicians who second-guess medical diagnoses based on video images - but the association's statement on the Schiavo case is so timid that it's hard to be sure.
Right on, Paul!
This is essentially the same argument I made here in relation to programming policies at IMAX theatres.
We absolutely must stand up and be counted - no more, Mr Nice Guy!
