    I'm not attacking the protest, i'm attacking those who protest for the sake of protesting - simply to 'stir the pot', and who make it about attacking others. I bet hardly anyone who drew mohammed did so truly
    to champion free speech!

    It's like the idiots who jumped on the Ross/Brand scandal - most of those 'offended' didn't even hear the thing when it first broadcast!

    We shouldn't allow our freedom of speech to be eroded by others. I agree totally; my point was that in this particular issue, couldn't people just respect that drawing mohammed was going to anger people and, despite having the freedom to do so, exercise restraint and choose not to?

    That sort of restraint occurs in everyday life - you have a conversation with someone and refrain from telling them things that you could do, simply to avoid upsetting them.
    You could make that argument about any joke involving any religious or political figure ever.

    And there is also the fact that in a lot of cases, including this one, choosing not to will also make a lot of people angry.

    It is illegal. It's also illegal to burn bank notes and melt coins, as it is categorized as defacing the Queen. :teehee:

    It's not that it's mohammed, it's that it's been done with the sole purpose of angering muslims. It's beyond 'poking fun', like say a caricature of a political figure - actual malice is behind it. That's why I object to it.

    A more practical consideration is that it's an issue currently dominating the media and would be best left to die quietly, hence my thought that restraint should be exercised.

    You couldn't be more wrong. It's got absolutely nothing to do with angering any one and you know that.

    I support Do what ever the hell you want, but try not to be a sheep - day. I'll have it scheduled for the near future.
    This :3 I'd like to think freedom of speech isn't limited to non-muslims. Why not just broaden the scope, not target a particular religion and let everyone enjoy celebrating freedom of speech
