    Sure it is, especially in the context of Islam.

    Do you think a Woman walking around in a short skirt on the streets of Saudi Arabia would get ignored ?

    Or arrested ?

    Purposeful speech that incites anger is still protected speech in this case.
    I agree with that the point is that she not discussing religion she is purposely trying to piss people off. Her drawings are protected but it is still done to be offensive. That is all.

    We are not talking about Saudi Arabia... We are talking about freedom of speech and expression in the United States. Want to try again?

    Hey, why not re-double or triple the effort & see if we can get a bunch more converted!

    Maybe we can attract thousands more, if we try hard enough!

    Have a real war, you know?

    I'm sure we'll get a lot more of them than us, and last one standing wins, right?

    read my words again... I said nothign of an "invitation for sex".. those are your words, not mine.

    insulting a religion is offensive, sure... but people are free to do so without fear of being killed or otherwise assaulted.

    there's nothign remotely close about the two for you.. others aren't having a difficult time comprehending the analogy... just the few that want so badly to show that these people had it coming to them.

    Why? When you have an enemy that is hiding in the shadows it's a good idea to try to lure them out in the open. The idea here is that it's easier to eliminate an enemy that is out in the open then the pussy that is hiding in the damn bushes and attacks you when you least expect it.

    in that case, some of us would still blame the violent extremists, and you guys would still blame the group holding the event.

    Why don't you put your money with where mouth is and go to a mosque and start drawing some pictures?
