    Using the "I gotta right to do it" card, doesn't change the simple fact that it's an irresponsible way to act. I fail to see how deliberately enraging people, regardless of who they are, is a positive. Having the "right" to do something, doesn't necessarily make what you do "right."

    In the end it is all a load of crap.
    Funny that the West has a sizeable amount of agnostics/atheists. Making this a CHristian vs. Muslim thing is intellectually dishonest at best.

    It's all about freedom of speech. We're not about to let some radicals change our way of life.

    Only ones doing that are people like you and other right wingers in the US and Europe and of course those in the two religions who are fanatics. This is not and never has been a Christian vs Muslim thing, and yet every time such a subject is brought up here on the boards, it is always "Muslims are evil, Christians are good" or/and "we are better than them".. and that is us vs them, Christians vs Muslims.

    It's all about freedom of speech.
    yes it is, that we can agree on. Funny how you did not protest against the Christian radicals that attempted (and succeed some what) to stop a play in the UK that they had deemed was blasphemous. Death threats were used as well as threats of violence. It is funny how the right likes to be the "defender of free speech" but when they are in power free speech is the first to go out the window... the irony.

    We're not about to let some radicals change our way of life.

    Actually, it is productive. It teaches a lesson about western society...you don't dictate terms to us about what can be drawn, written about, photographed, discussed, or openly debated.

    In this case, a few backward ass religious lunatics want to tell everyone else how to behave. They need to learn that these stone age tactics will not work.

    PRETTY SURE THAT's WHAT I JUST SAID. READ AND COMPREHEND BEFORE YOU SPEW YOUR IDIOCY.

    MAYBE BECAUSE I WASN'T ON HERE WHEN THAT HAPPENED. FURTHERMORE, I'M NOT PART OF THE RIGHT WING.

    Damn, reading comp. helps, folks.

    I'm sure the cartoons will look like something out of Seseme Street.
