What would Jesus and Mohammed think?

Flopping Aces sums it all up nicely, with all the relevant cartoons, as well.

I'm lazy, with very little to post, so I'll just reprint the comment I left there:

Notice that here in a free society, when we see something questionable in taste and which is offensive to us (*cough*WashingtonPostcartoon*cough*), what happens? We send a letter expressing our displeasure; and the source in question of the offense has the good sense to post it for all to see, and debate a response back. No threat of violence. No homicide bombers. No one kidnapped and beheaded...no cartoonist dismembered. No calls for Jihad.

The sooner radical Islam vacates the 12th century and joins the rest of the civilized world right here in the 21st century, the sooner there will be world peace and tolerance.

Hey Bos'un...I never thanked you for your numerous visits to my site. I always try to reach out to those who visit and read my lunatic rants. Thanks for all your comments.

As for this cartoon, I wish the bombs we use in the middle east had 'humor gas' in them. These people would be in a whole ot better shape if they had a sense of humor!

My associates and I know good ranting when we see them. You have a great space. Wordsmith, Rosemary, Reporter, and myself will continue to visit your space. What is great about our country is to be able to disagree sometimes, support each other at other times, and live free in the greatest country in the world. Have a great blogging day.

Thank you for the heads-up. We'll see what comes of this. It still won't shut-up the 'Bush lied' crowd, however. Maybe they will just go on looking for Elvis...
