I agree, but can only quote Emerson, "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds/ adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines."
Similarly, there are some nations who have no problem with the wholesale slaughter of whale and seal, but are opposed to Kosher slaughter for food. Oddly enough, those nations are also hotly involved in criminalising other cultural practices of their ethnic minorities. I suppose it depends largely on convenient or inconvenient one finds those minority populations to be.
“I don’t doubt that Hitler’s regime killed a lot of Jews in WWII, but I don’t believe they were ever frog marched into homicidal gas chambers and dispatched. I think between 700,000–1.2 million Jews died of disease, starvation, overwork, reprisals for partisan attacks, allied bombing, and natural causes during the war.”
