Quote for the day

"The archbishop has been word-bombed with criticism, deserved-ly, though he characterized the response as an overreaction.

No, an overreaction is a man who kills his wife -- or a brother kills his sister -- for dishonoring the family under sharia law. Overre-action is murdering a filmmaker for exploring the abuse of human rights that can be justified under strict interpretations of sharia law. Overreaction is plotting to assassinate a cartoonist for Allah's sake because you don't get it.

Underreaction to radical Islam and jihad gets Paris burned, artists killed, thousands incinerated by detonator airplanes, and arch-bishops advancing religious exemptions to enlightened law."

Over-reaction seems to be a relevant term, subject to personal interpretation.
