Relative Democracy

We need only look a little northward to be thankful for what we have.
Consider Lina Joy, whose conversion to Christianity means that she has to go to court to <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/24/world/asia/24malaysia.html">fight for her right to marry</a> because Malaysia's constitution defines Malays to be Muslims. Malays are therefore stripped of the right to choose their own religion.
And here I was complaining about <a href="http://tribolum.com/archives/2006/08/23/v_for_vendetta_.php">a DVD being banned</a>.
That's not to say I'm ok with not being able to buy a copy of "V for Vendetta" though.
