'They're doing it to themselves'

It was amusing to watch Pat Buchanan attempt to defend the bloody self-flagellation of the Iraqi Shi'ites on the McLaughlin Group this morning. His argument: Christians have been doing the same thing going back to the middle ages, and "They're doing it to themselves."

So Buchanan supports freedom when it comes to perhaps one of the most bizarre of religious practices, but not when it comes to things like consensual homosexual sex. How typical.
