Now this is "tolerance!"

Loyal Colossus reader Fred Gregory informs us of what religious "tolerance" according to North Carolina liberals is like. Via the Spag Report:

Greensboro Rabbi Fred Guttman called into the Brad and Britt Show this morning and analogized that the Koran burning preacher might be a fair target to be shot for the greater good. He also suggested that the preacher be sued to prevent the Koran burning - something that would violate the First Amendment. Host Brad Krantz who has been among the liberal crowd attacking opponents of the mosque at Ground Zero (often citing the First Amendment) let Guttman's comments pass without challenge.

On [his] blog, Guttman again invoked the Jewish value of Pikuach Nefesh which means "the greater good". This was the same value Guttman raised on the Brad and Britt Show when he argued that sometimes it is necessary to take a life to preserve more lives- the "greater good". He used a war time analogy on the Brad & Britt Show about how shooting someone could be justified for the "greater good". He then stated something to the effect of "I'm not saying this pastor should be shot...maybe he should be".

The pastor should be shot for the "greater good," huh? Gee, that sounds AWFULLY familiar now, doesn't it?

Just yet another little nugget of proof that demonstrates that the REAL intolerant, insensitive haters are "progressives" ... so much so that they wanna kill you for disagreeing with them.

I wonder -- given Obama's hostility towards Israel, would it be an acceptable exercise of freedom of speech and freedom of religion for a rabbi to invoke the same principle regarding Barack Obama? You know, sort of a case of "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one" sort of thing, like the rabbi proposed here. You know, just in a hyperbolic sort of way, like the siteowner where this was posted and some of the commenters there insist was the case with the actual comment.
