Earlier this week, in the post Humanity Top Trumps I was suggesting we could make good use for a ranking system to determine whose rights were more important in a given situation.
One of those situations involved women’s rights Vs. religious rights. In that instance it looks like, probably, women’s rights will trump religious rights, and rightly so. But it looks like, religious rights will trump the rights of people who don’t believe, at least in Russia.
It’s refreshing because Russia is stereotypically viewed as being rough and tough and this shows they have a gentle side. A gentle side which throws people in jail to prevent “offending believers’ feelings” .
