American schools are consumed with the concept of multiculturalism – the idea that no culture is any better than any other culture. That’s why two items in the Dallas Morning News than ran on consecutive days might raise an eyebrow.
The first item concerned the upcoming premiere of a new movie entitled “The Price of Honor” that examines the Islamic practice of honor killings. Specifically, the movie was produced in hopes of rekindling a cold case, that of Yaser Abdel Said who is thought to have murdered his two daughters in such a killing.
The film explains what honor killings are: the practice of killing females believed to have brought shame to a family.

This, of course, is a conflict with the progressive vision of a world without gender where women can marry each other and still be heads of large corporations. You would think that the feminist movement would be raising hell about these killings. But the Cult of Multiculturalism is strong.
