    Eh, wtf right back at you mate, I haven't said that's your position I simply pointed out that unless you're arguing it should be illegal then your words carry no relevancy at all. Too complicated?

    Also, you must be thinking highly of yourself if you believe that I care whether or not you'll be talking to me. Please don't.

    Oh, you just wanted to make a false observation and thought I'd stand quiet. Which is it, you want to quote me and have me respond to you, or do you want to just not debate at all?

    Stand quiet to what? My 'observation' as you put it is that unless you're trying to make a political argument here - you know, something along the lines of "let's make it illegal to mock religion" - your words carry no relevancy to the thread. If it's merely your opinion that it's a "wrong move" to mock Islam then don't do it, asking others not to do it when it's their right to do so is a whole other thing.

    I don't know what could possibly make you fail to understand such a simple concept, would it help if I typed slower?

    What a load of crap.Most people complaining about Gellar have no problem with the Piss Christ, The book of Mormon play and many other things that offend christians and other religious people.The only reason they say anything about offending Islam is because of the terrorists in that religion.

    But even worse, drawing out the extremists that wish to kill you for it. Can you please explain to me what makes Geller's hateful, bigoted and provocative actions worth the consequences. Again, if Geller just has to draw her cartoons that ridicule Mohamed, then she's going to have to face the consequences.

    Terrorism is the unlaw use of or the threat of violence in order to coerce and or intimidate a group of people into doing what you want.So you want to give into terrorists demands.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Please stop trying to tell liberals what they think. You suck at it.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    There isn't much substance to what leftists think Kobie-the thoughts and deeds are transparent.

    Liberals aren't near as complicated as they believe themselves to be. In fact 'simple' would describe them well.

    Speech has restrictions in America. I wouldn't expect you to understand that.

    I have a huge problem with the "piss Christ" and any other gratuitous mocking of any faiths icons. Including Gellars irresponsible behaviour we've been discussing here.

    This is what the artist says about Piss Christ:

    "The thing about the crucifix itself is that we treat it almost like a fashion accessory. When you see it, you're not horrified by it at all, but what it represents is the crucifixion of a man," Serrano told The Guardian in 2012. "And for Christ to have been crucified and laid on the cross for three days where he not only bled to death, he shat himself and he peed himself to death. So if 'Piss Christ' upsets you, maybe it's a good thing to think about what happened on the cross."
