    When will people stop being such a bunch of James Blunts?

    So mocking or criticizing someone is to deny their rights. That's an ... interesting take.
    Only when you are mocking or criticizing someone who is mocking and criticizing someone else.....

    I know. Sounds crazy, huh?

    The first one is painfully ignorant. The claim is that every Muslim is a terrorist-in-waiting. The second is just factually incorrect. So is the third -- while attacks on Christians are a problem in some places, they're not everywhere, and tying all foreign aid to "Muslim countries" to such attacks is pretty dishonest.

    Just don't understand why people have to be such pricks to each other all the time. The event itself was designed to insult people and the gunmen obliged by acting like a bunch of pricks themselves, just don't see the point in any of it. I guess maybe if we stopped believing in sky magicians it could get better but at that point I am sure we as humans will find something else to focus our hate on.

    Actually Christians are persecuted in virtually all muslim-majority countries, with maybe Malaysia and Indonesia as exceptions.

    Re: Shooting at Muhammad Art Exhibit in Texas

    Just out of curiosity, over the past 3 decades, has anyone kept a tally as to how many Christians have been killed by Muslims vs. How many Muslims have been killed by Christians?

    That would be interesting to know.

    I see. You are one of those who want to equate people having opinions that some find offensive with people trying to assassinate those having opinions they find offensive.

    Mocking or criticizing actions or rhetoric one finds offensive, objectionable or just plain stupid is just as much of an exercise in free speech as those actions or rhetoric. Using the Holocaust as a prop to attack those who exercise their own rights is piss-poor form.
    Don't try to turn this on those that exercise non violent free speech.

    Says the guy who claims that others who use non-violent free speech want to take away your rights.
