    If it's such a ridiculous comparison why refute it? The basis is simple, provocation leads to an action. Whether that provocation is justified is something else entirely.
    Lol, don't try to wriggle out of the fact that you did indeed attempt to justify the murder of innocent journalists...

    If someone was taunting someone and belittling them, making them feel crap. Asked to stop. But continued, they deserve the punch they get.

    Is there a basis for your discontent? Did I have any pre existing knowledge my post would cause offence?

    You know there's a difference
    Lol. Well you just have considering you prefaced it with ... I am not condoning their behaviour.

    Did you think everyone would agree?

    If you can't see the difference between an ideology and its followers, then I pray for you.

    Look at Nazi Germany, one of the most significant people within Hitler's rule was homosexual yet Hitler was against any form of homosexuality in Nazi Germany.

    Look at feminism, a good concept which aims to "to define, establish, and defend equal political, economic, cultural, and social rights for women" however is misrepresented by extremists within the media.

    Look at Christianity
    , a religion which teaches it's followers to abide to the laws of the theology, yet we see Christians having sex, drinking until drunkenness etc

    And finally, look at Islam.
    A religion which seeks to unite its followers through a set of laws ordained by God, however we see followers doing the exact opposite,

    This is all proof that followers are often a facade, to what the truth is.
    That's a category error. If all the followers of an ideology don't support the ideology then they're not really followers of the ideology are they? They just pretend they are for external reasons, mainly political ones, or mainly because of the repercussions that they will suffer when forced to abandon a religion such as Islam which openly despises those who do so.

    sometimes he prayed, sometimes he killed....look deeper into books.
    We are talking about in relation to this specific occurrence.
    Please cite evidence, where Muhammad did other then pray“O my Lord, guide my people along the true path, as they are ignorant of the truth.” for his enemies, who ridiculed and tortured him.

    If not, then pipe down and look inside a book for once.

    Wtf is wrong with you?

    Action lead to consequences. That's what theirs was. I don't agree with it, but that's what happens when you provoke a group of loonies.

    Your logic was that being offended naturally makes someone want to punch back. You made no mention of intent. You offended me quite deeply by defending the murder of journalists and satirists, therefore should I be able to kill you?

    And no there's really not a difference. That's what happens when you set such a dangerous, disgusting precedent.

    Nope, they have fled to the northeastern suburbs, where they will be hidden by the locals.

    No, you did say you agree with it. You said people who taunt deserve the punch they get in return. What is wrong with YOU, you literally attempted to justify a mass murder. I don't know how you're trying to wriggle out of this...

    I didn't defend them. I don't agree with what they've done.

    Yes, the company should have faced some sort of backlash but not murder.

    You equated this attack to someone being punched in the face and said that such a punch would be justified. It's pretty clear. Just admit that what you said was disgusting instead of pretending that you meant something else, it's rather embarrassing now...

    And what kind of "backlash" should they have faced? Should police have marched into their offices to shut them down? Should the journalists have been jailed? Should they have had acid thrown in their faces? What kind of "backlash" should these innocent people have faced for drawing goddamn CARTOONS??

    1. Who was this gay Nazi you speak of?

    2. Feminism has many different forms, radical feminists are included in that

    3. Christianity never originally forbid alcohol and still doesn't. Sex outside marriage is straying from the religion yes, but I don't see sex outside marriage doing harm to anyone

    4. Islam clearly states "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be killed" - 5:33

    "`Wage war' mentioned here means, oppose and contradict, and it includes disbelief," - Ibn Kathir

    Ergo, Islam is to blame. If Muslims acted against Islam you would have a point, but these terrorists are simply following the religion

    Punch is justified.
    Death is not.
    A reaction is also justified, although I'd have preferred something like groups protesting.

    So don't put words into my mouth.

    Warning. If they continued to produce the stuff, shut down.

    You were trying to point out the difference between ideologies and their followers. But what is an ideology that has no followers? Irrelevant. The fact of the matter is that there are followers of the ideology of Islam going around saying that they are killing people because of their ideology.

    Therefore if you are another follower of Islam but disagree with them then either you or them are not followers of "Islam". Of course this is why there are many denominations of Islam because not all muslims believe the same things but as a non-radical muslim you need to point out how your ideology of Islam varies from theres and why yours is better. If you don't then you will be seen as the non-islamic person as you don't defend your interpretation of the islamic ideology and then you will be put down rightfully by the Islamic extremists and the "westerners" as you evidently disagree with both.

    How many people have to believe in something before it receives your vision of protection from satire / offence, and entitles the offended parties to some kind of retaliation (not necessarily a murderous one)?

    Well that's something that can vary hugely... They know that a whole religion with a known bunch of nutters is a bad move.

    Anything with a label. Religions, race and sexuality are ones that spring to mind.

    So in other words, the punch thing wasn't a metaphor, it was a pointless non-sequitur. Consider deleting it because it looks an awful lot like you're justifying mass murder.

    Wow. Nice and authoritarian. At least they get one warning, though eh? :rolleyes: So again, as I was deeply offended by your post, would you be OK if I reported you to the authorities and got them to warn you that if you offended me again, you would no longer be allowed to post anything on the Internet?
