    The cartoon below is drawn by Charlie Hebdo, the french magazine which recently got attacked by gunmen.

    It shows a muslim man using the Quran as (bullets going through it) with the caption "the Quran is **** it doesn't stop bulllets" after the Rabaa massacre in Egypt. Over 1000 Egyptians were killed by their own military whilst peacefully protesting.

    This is one of the reasons I am not charlie. I do not make fun of massacres.I am above that. If someone where to make fun of holocaust victims, they would be called quite a few bad names(and rightly so). It shouldn't be any different when people make fun of other atrocities.

    Just to add - I do not support the gunmen or anything of the like.

    The image is in the spoiler, you may find it offensive, so I've given you the option whether you wish to view it or not.

    Shame you've probably been railed on by the 'free speech' crew who think free speech = 'white people get to say what we want regardless of responsibility to not be an overly offensive racist bigot' (ignoring that even France has 'hate speech' laws making that nonsense technically illegal).

    The attack in Paris was a heinous crime, but using it to rail on Muslims because of the actions of 4 people is just petty and small-minded. It's no different than being a racist **** to all white people because of the acts of a few skin-heads.

    It's unfair and just not mature.


    So no I'm not Charlie, I'm someone who gets that our rights come with some responsibilities. Constructive criticism of Islam is fine, hiding behind the free-speech banner to excuse being a xenophobic **** isn't.

    You could be smacked in the face for it.

    You could be murdered for it

    You could be raped for it.

    Who knows? It depends on the mind of the perpetrator of the crime.

    In this case, 2 nut-cases entered a building and executed some cartoonists and a policeman.

    The point is precisely that nobody should need an 'excuse' to present their xenophobic views. And critics don't need an excuse to call them out on their ****.

    As soon as you open the door to prohibition of 'offense', you've immediately ****ed yourself over since literally anything can be 'offensive'.

    only an atheist or someone being vulgar for argument's sake would call religious standards and principles offensive.
    wrong

    certain religious standards and principles are deeply offensive and even murderous

    without even mentioning Islam, just think e.g. of the People's Temple (Jim Jones) or of Aum Shinrikyo

    Don't even START sensationalizing about gays with me!!
    yes, Islam is deeply offensive towards gays. There is no way around that.

    Live with it.
