    Huh?
    No kidding! (see my sig)
    How is that a response to what I said.
    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    "What you said" and what others have said is that you question whether any individual answering the Koran's description of Muhammed ever existed. "What I said" in reply was, that's fascinating to convo about but irrelevant to a debate on freedom of speech.

    And BTW, your sig line is annoying and inaccurate.

    Just sayin'.................

    Here's "what I said" (not difficult to find for most.)

    My post wasn't to show he did, though it lends credibility to that position.

    My post WAS to show what the West thought of him, or at least reports of him, and the Islamic philosophy.
    I don't believe we have any such near-term outside acknowledgment (if it is an acknowledgement), of Jesus.

    For the record; I believe this religion is tantamount to constructing a cult around Blackbeard the Pirate, a tale of a Buccaneers exploits and code for dividing up the booty.
    With perhaps the addition of some extranea afterwards.
    Does that sound like I care about offending or disagree with free speech?
    Reading, a wonderful skill.

    Free speech needs to be free.

    It shouldn't just be allowed, but promoted.

    More things than just Muhammed deserve a good dose of logical critique.

    I don't have to join you in trashing Islam in order to approve of your freedom of speech, and I decline the snotty invitation to do just that.

    Have a lovely day.

    I didN'T invite you to "join me in trashing Islam". I was pointing out that I had already exercised the Right you somehow thought (^$!#) I was denying you in your Goofy previous reply:
    "The whole point of freedom of speech is that I am free to say things the listener might find it very difficult to hear."

    See, I was pointing out I had ALREADY said something that was "very difficult to hear", and I would certainly Not deny you the same.
    But you weren't able to grasp that or anything else.

    Yet another Obtuse Mischaracterization of one of my posts. (I'd call it "lying Mischaracterizaton" but I don't think you understood well enough To lie)

    How very Romney-esque of you.
