Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

I Doubt If This Is Religious Bigotry

Some people in Britain are excessively sensitive to what imagine to be bigotry:

A UNIVERSITY Christian Union has been suspended and had its bank account frozen after refusing to open its membership to people of all religions.
I was reminded of a similar reaction by the noted netkook Doc Tavish/Scott Bradbury/Gunther Schiller/John Winslow Brown (his name is legion) upon finding out that only Jews are permitted to lead prayers in synagogues:
[Sounds like religious bigotry to me! Where is the diversity? Where is the multi-culturalism- all the crap that these certain Jews want for the rest of us?]
I nominated that for the “stupidest post ever” but the same nonsense is now being applied to other religions.

As has been pointed out before, the Jews seem to be the canaries in the coal mine. Evil always seems to find them first, before diversifying to other faiths or ethnicities.

Reminds me of the line from Fiddler on the Roof: "I know we're the Chosen People. But, just once, couldn't you choose someone else?"
