Reasonable doubt

To the editor,

At the bottom of Bruce Wark's editorial on the Peter March controversy, you printed the quaint little line, "We (The Coast) always promote reasoned public discussion." So, who gets to decide what is and is not reasoned? Is there a board? Are members voted in? Freedom of expression would not need a place in the Charter if its definition was simply "...to be free to discuss what we all already agree on anyway." If Peter March had posted a cartoon that was equally as offensive to Christians, would we care? No. We'd feel that the cartoon was justified. 'Cause Christians are ignorant, Bush-voting extremists. Right?
