    Excerpt: After Comedy Central cut a portion of a South Park episode following a death threat from a radical Muslim group, Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris wanted to counter the fear. She has declared May 20th "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day."
    Norris told KIRO Radio's Dave Ross that cartoonists are meant to challenge the lines of political correctness. "That's a cartoonist's job, to be non-PC."

    Producers of South Park said Thursday that Comedy Central removed a speech about intimidation and fear from their show after a radical Muslim group warned that they could be killed for insulting the Prophet Muhammad.
    The group said it wasn't threatening South Park producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone, but it included a gruesome picture of Theo Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker killed by a Muslim extremist in 2004, and said the producers could meet the same fate. The website posted the addresses of Comedy Central's New York office and the California production studio where South Park is made.
    "As a cartoonist I just felt so much passion about what had happened I wanted to kind of counter Comedy Central's message they sent about feeling afraid," Norris said.

    I like the idea.Either all religions are subject to jokes,scorn,ridicule or offense or none are. Which is why comedy central pissed me off by censoring those episodes of South Park. Its nothing more than hypocrisy on their part seeing how they practically allow everyone,group or religion to be made fun of, but Islam is some how protected.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Its no wonder honour killings, suicide bombings, beheadings, torture and pedophilia are prevelent in muslim societies today. Im not saying that those things do not happen in other cultures but they are not accepted.
    It is not a rule, it is common sense.

    Just out of interest, how old do you reckon Mary was when she gave birth to Jesus? Jesus was obviously a product of a peadophilic relationship seeing the age of marriage and consent is 18 in some countries.

    And no, Prophet Mohammed is not the perfect being, he was a human being. Only God is perfect

    Out of all the things to attack Islam on, it always does make me laugh people start on him and his marriage to Aisha. I mean, get over it. There is no evidence to support it.
    Which also explains why Muslims almost never takes Non Muslims view into consideration if that is their first line of attack. Out of all the surahs, hadiths, practices in Islam (Some of which are questionable and others that do deserve attacks) It's always the marriage. And seeing Europe was no better 1500 years ago, what moral ground do Westerners have?

    And if Muslims today are being attacked for what Mohammed allegedly did 1500 years ago, I suppose I can attack Whites for what their ancestors did or countries for what they did?

    And on topic, have a draw Mohammed day. I find it childish and pathetic but that is the price of freedom.

    How is this there a Christian motivation to this? I see it as more as a defense of free speech reaction to the threats of people suffering from mass delusion the same as any other theist.

    Yes, you're right Pete. Absolutely right. The guys who have had Jesus fighting Iraqi's, addicted to internet porn, ask a jew to kill him, was so worried about popularity that he put together a year 2000 party in celebration of him, tried to have an image of Muhammad essentially just sitting there definitely did it to prove "our religion is superior to theirs". The guys who had the Pope order the murder of dozens of people in bunny suits, who had a Catholic Bishop order the death of Jesus Christ, who had the entire Catholic hiarchy focusing on molesting children by the direction of a space spider, and whose priests kept scantily clad little young boys on leashes while trying to get into Satan's Super Sweet Sixteen party definitely were trying to show that "thier religion is superior than yours" by showing Muhammed in a bear suit.

    For Christs Sake...we're supposed to take your comments serious?

    I wish to not add a single productive comment to this conversation. But sir, I think what you just said may have been one of the greatest posts in the history of the internet. Live long and prosper

    Older than 9, I would recon.

    Considering it is various Islamic scholars who have placed her age at 9 at the time of consumation, perhaps your issue is with them. THey seem to think there is plenty of evidence.

    Whatever moral ground people can claim has to do with events and attitudes of the here and now. As far as Muslims taking non Muslims views into account, I would say the issue of Aisha's age is of lesser importance than all the myriad other issues where Muslims do not take non muslims views into account.

    THe only Muslims who should be attacked are those who justify present day actions based upon Mohammad's sexual conquest of a 9 year old. If all people do is engage in du toque sorts of arguments while never indicating there is anything wrong with such an arrangement, their obvious need to defend is what sticks in other people's minds.

    Younger than 18 I reckon which makes her legally a child ...

    Actually there is no consensus on her age. Many Islamic scholars and Imams quote different ages for her.
    And there is no primary evidence stating her age.

    I would say the issue of Aisha's age is of lesser importance than all the myriad other issues where Muslims do not take non muslims views into account.
    But the way people are going on about it on these threads as if it is somehow central to Islam is amusing. If the only thing they can attack Muslims with is Prophet Mohammeds wife, then it is pointless to have a discussion or take their views into consideration.

    THe only Muslims who should be attacked are those who justify present day actions based upon Mohammad's sexual conquest of a 9 year old. If all people do is engage in du toque sorts of arguments while never indicating there is anything wrong with such an arrangement, their obvious need to defend is what sticks in other people's minds.
    I don't care who Prophet Mohammed married it is hardly important in the belief system of Islam but if someone actually expects Muslims to condemn our Prophet for something he has not even been proven in doing so, they are having a laugh.

    Bring actual evidence to support claims of him having sexual intercourse with a 9 year old and I'm sure Muslims would condemn.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Seattle cartoonist launches "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day"Hey look, its yet another thread that is not about whether or not Muhammed was a pedophile. The off topic derailing needs to end here. Next one that tries to continue it in any way is getting thread banned. Go start a thread about it if that's what you want to discuss.

    People need to be taught that they don't have a right to not be offended. The dick move isn't so much this as much as it is threatening the lives of people who draw certain pictures. We do this to Christians all the time, and they'll get pissed about it, but they'll also let it go. Time to learn that they can't get everything they want by trying to bully an entire population with threats and violence.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Not all of us are christians


    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.
    Actually *I* did protest against stopping that play. As I recall, I saw quite a few others expressing disagreement with the whole thing as well. The difference is, we couldn't really go open a play in the UK in protest, now could we?
