    It's not about trying to piss people off.

    If I was a cartoonist, I wouldn't draw the images in order to piss people off. I would do it in protest of the actions of a company in the US catering to terrorists. IMO, this is not so much spitting in the face of Muslims, as it is making fun of the people and companies who cater to terrorists. Making them look like fools. Hoping that perhaps next time, they will have the courage to stand up for freedom of speech. That perhaps next time, the voices of a few idiotic extremists will not drive the actions of a huge US media company.

    What is the harm done that would make this childish and pathetic?

    In the end it is all a load of crap.
    I never realized you euros thought freedom of speech was a religion.

    Well, it ain't.

    But it's an American thang, and y'all can't understan'.

    Stop being such a damned wimp! These Islamo-Nazis deserve far worse.

    Religious zealotry should be confronted at every opportunity; it is the duty of courageous souls!

    Ah, the wonders of modenm moral equivalency blindness.

    When was the last time Christians stole airplanes and used them to murder 3000 people?

    When was the last time Christians strapped one of those chic Dyn-O-Mite! vests and murdered children in a pizza parlor?

    When was the last time a Christian hijacked a cruise ship, shot a man in a wheel chair, and then pushed him overboard?

    When was the last time a Christian put a bomb in a radio and put the radio on an airplane, so it could detonate in flight and kill everyone on board?

    When was the last time a Christian became a passenger on a flight to ignite the explosives in his shoes?

    When was the last time a Christian became a passenger on a flight to ignite the explosives in his panties?

    When was the last time Europeans saw their testicles?

    I have no problem doing things that religious zealots find offensive. To hell with them. If they have a problem with it, they can come to my house and attempt to "rectify the situation" - I'll be the guy wearing this...

    Creators of 'Everybody Draw Muhammad Day' drop gag after everybody gets angry | Top of the Ticket | Los Angeles Times

    So apparently even the creators of this event now agree with me after seeing the kind of responses and the kind of people supporting them.

    Apparently the posts weren't "welcoming" enough, as on Sunday morning he announced his departure from the cause. "I am aghast that so many people are posting deeply offensive pictures of the Prophet," he writes. "Y'all go ahead if that's your bag, but count me out."

    Did he think people were going to post flattering images?

    That's what Facebook user Douglas Armstrong wondered too. "You created an event inviting people to submit pictures of Mohammed," Armstrong wrote. "And apparently you're so new to the Internet that you didn't foresee what would happen?"

    Cultural/moral relativist horse****.

    Tell me what are your feelings on ancient human sacrifice?
