    On a side note, to a certain poster in thread (I think we all know who) -- wasn't nice knowing you.
    No-one on here has made excuses for violent extremists.

    You really have absolutely no clue about jihadi terrorism and what it is about, do you?

    Now that's interesting. Can you show some consistent examples of this?

    Actually it's thanks to the Deists and the Christians who supported them.

    That's interesting. So you can't kill in others defense, eh?

    On a separate note, deliberately offending the deepest sensibilities of a group of religious believers is wrong and people shouldn't abuse their freedom of speech in this way.
    I'll bet you a dollar you don't believe this.

    I find the actions of the radical Muslims who launched a terror attack against this "publicity stunt" trying to actually murder people to be far more antagonizing than a bunch of old people drawing pictures of Mohammad at some empty school and giggling to each other as they're being "provocative".

    However, some people have at least implied that a violent reaction should have been almost expected.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Not based upon their religion of intimidation by terror and violence.

    Free men fight back - spineless weasels whine, cry, and wring their hands in fear.

    **** the ISIS morons.

    If you describe their opinions in that way, perhaps not. But people who hold those opinions, and don't do violence, do deserve respect - because they are people.

    Precisely. All cultures are not equal.

    That is a whole other discussion, which is pretty irrelevant in this discussion.
