    Especially considering that i am not one to push my faith, just one who defends it against dis-information on here. I try to be reasonable about such things.

    Should they be allowed to do this? Yes.

    Should they do it? No, they should have more decency.

    You will note that I did say that she is a beautiful woman in the OP.
    To Muslims using Mohmmed in a cartoon was offensive. Christians and Americans said to those Muslims get over it. I now tell you the same thing I have told Muslims....get over it.

    Just because something is offensive doesn't mean it shouldn't be allowed.

    I agree 100%.

    And to be honest, in any other context, I would be praising the artistry of the photo and the beauty of the model.

    From reading the NT I'm pretty sure it mentions his brothers.

    But Catholics aren't going to bomb a Playboy office because of it.

    No, we said to Muslims, "Don't send death threats to the cartoonist and burn down half of the Netherlands on your rampage".
