Chemists Have Solutions .
NIMBY --- you say that you do NOT believe that making fun of religion should be illegal across the board. You say it's "the way" Pamela Geller did it.
So give me a scenario where making fun of Islam is done the "right way".
Your feelings may have been hurt on this board, or elsewhere, many times but I doubt you would murder anyone as a consequence. That's because we are rational, educated, civilized human beings who understand criticism and mockery have their place in our culture, a freedom not all that long available in human history.That there are idiots burning books, idiots destroying holy sites, etc. etc. etc. does not say anything about the right of the hundreds of millions non-terrorists from complaining about insulting images of their prophet. You keep stating things about terrorists (who have indeed lost the right to complain about anything) but all the non-terrorists have rights too. Now we may not have to do anything with that but let's not pretend we are doing this to protect the right of free speech. We do this to protect the right of thumbing our nose at the feelings of others, which is fine if you want to do that, but let us be honest about it.
In fact we see a great deal of criticism of the USA on these boards but no one's life will ever be in danger.If someone insults the United States (as a foreigner) or has criticism of the USA as an American he/she will be attacked with fervor. And that criticism can be almost very extreme and very vitriolic. That is something that seems to be the norm.
