Storming Teapots

The subjugation of women and killing of homosexuals in theocratic dictatorships may not be worthy of rational treatment by the foreign policy of Canada’s government, but neutering the national anthem gets high priority.

As tempests in teapots go this is surely a stormy one indeed.

I suppose one must pick his battles carefully in the “social metaphysics” of politics but what about the virtue of rationality? How pressing can the need be to change “in all our sons command” to “in all of us command”?

And, have our political leaders opened themselves to further challenges by the preference shown to “us”?

In keeping with the influence of “social metaphysics” would it not be more clarifying to substitute with “in all genders command”?
