    Whether its " stupid " or not is your opinion.

    Depictions cartoon or otherwise of the prophet Mohammed are punshable be death, Homosexuality is punishibale by death.

    Is it " stupid " for someone to be a Homosexual in Saudi Arabia ? Did they bring that death sentence upon themselves ?

    Well in this country we have freedom of speech, and shooting someone for drawing a picture is and should be treated as a crime regardless of religious affiliation. The "offended" in this case do not have the right to murder over it.

FFS, a girl in Indiana speculates about a pizza catered gay wedding and draws death threats, and not one liberal, from the President to whatever worm is running for the job had not one comment. They tacitly approved those death threats.

    Now, here you are tacitly approving and excusing mob violence to silence free speech.

    Hi Higgins,

    The problem with that line of thought is that once you capitulate to the extremists, then they've succeeded in their goal and won.

    They bring guns to such events in order to cow you in to not holding them, do you really want to send the message that such violent tactics work and that we're easily pushed around?

    Personally, I'm glad I live in Texas where this kind of thing wasn't tolerated. The two perps were shot dead on the spot, and no other deaths took place. Let that be a lesson to Muslim extremists the other way. This is our country, and freedom of speech isn't something we're gonna give up without a fight. You bring a gun to Texas, you better be aware that everyone else is gonna have one too and are not afraid to draw...

    That's an unfortunate and irrelevant Ad Hom reply.

    We try to set the standards here a little higher than that and applaud thought out responses in context to the subject matter presented in the OP.

    They need to get over themselves. A funny cartoon of Muhammad is nowhere near as offensive as piss Christ, but you don't see Christians storming art galleries with guns do you?

    Ppl like this make all Muslims look bad. They need to get control of their extremists or they can't complain when public opinion of Islam is so low.

    oh, and I don't give a **** what you are saying.. a valid "consequence" for speech is not death.... contrary speech, absolutely... death?.. no.

    to those of you whom speak, or even hint, as if they "had it comin'". you're an asshole, flat out.
    you can have a rally of KKK affilliated, Nambla endorsed, ISIS sympathiizin', neo-nazi Hitler sychophants, that have a contest drawing Jesus, Mohhamed, and Buddha, using only thier own feces... and they are perfectly in the right to express themselves without fear of getting killed by anyone.
    Only in Texas.

    Any other state or country and the peeps would have taken out a few innocent ppl. Texas' finest really are the finest.

    I don't usually stoop to that level but the poster had not replied to me before. He was out to insult me and make me and my opinions look stupid. I'll happily engage in civilised debate with him if he makes the effort to deal with my points in a civilised way himself.

    Correct. Muslims everywhere should feel shame over the fact that this sort of thing has become commonplace. Was anybody surprised when they turned on the news to learn two muslim extremists had tried to storm a building with guns and kill lots of people?

    This is a Muslim problem

    People are allowed to do this and rightfully so. Nothing is infallible and beyond criticism even someones religious beliefs. A mere drawing for and depiction is no reason to do violence.
    The issue here is simple. This event was designed to get a reaction from the "enemy", either in the US (preferably I bet) or abroad some where. It was the whole goal of the organizers to provoke and they are hiding behind this so called free speech.... free speech they want to deny Muslims.. oddly enough.

    Now they got the reaction exactly as they had hoped, so they can now use this attack in their hate filled ignorant jihad/crusade against Islam and in turn the radicals in Islam will use this event and attack to bolster their radical ideas within Islam by claiming "look the Christians are attacking us" bull****. This is never ending crap and it has to stop.

    Religious wars are dangerous as hell.. ask the French about their religious wars that cost them up to 25% of their population (some say up to 40%) because of Christians fighting it out over who loves Jesus more. Or the English religious wars that burnt Christians at the stake because they believed in a different idea of Christianity.. Or Christian slaughter of Jerusalem in 1099. The list of wars and atrocities done in the name of religion go on and on, and this event was just another skirmish in a new war between radical Christians and Muslims... and it has to freaking stop.
