Hateful words a war crime - The Washington Times: World: "With a trio of guilty verdicts yesterday, the U.N. tribunal for Rwanda has established that men armed only with words can commit genocide."

Genocide?? When courts make words mean anything, then they mean nothing. My Grandma had it right: "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me." Names can only hurt you if you are a wimp. Of course, slander is another thing, but we have so legalized slander [we call it freedom of speech], that you can say anything about someone in power with complete immunity. {For instance, that Bush is like Hitler}.

The libs want to have it both ways--that words mean nothing [as in the Free Speech movement at Berkeley years ago--or that you can kill a whole race [genocide]. What light is in those who have departed from faith in Christ, the light of the world?
