Anyone kniow where I can see these terrible Mohammod cartoons?
Tried Google but no luck -- anyone got a link?
They must be terrible, the tv news had them pixelated.
They've made their way into some members' avatars
Well, aside from ONE product (meds I cannot find a good, effective alternative for) I'm STILL boycotting France and Germany based products. I've NOW decided to BUYcott Danish Products, because, unless I missed something... while the cartoons would likely be upsetting to a Muslim (as many Jesus cartoons are offensive to ME, and I'm presuming, other Christians) I'm fully capable of discontinuing subscriptions to newspapers/magazines who choose to publish the really crass ones, and the others, even though they are (on occasion) making a valid point, deserve little more than a scathing letter to whomever okayed it, and created it.
At NO time have I behaved like a child with a temper tantrum, in response to poor-taste/ crass/ offensive cartoons. And the Muslim population wonders why we TEND to view them negatively! While I belive the Muslims who are offended have a right to boycott Danish goods, so do I have the right to support them. NOT because I think that the cartoons were in fine taste, or NOT offensive. But because, unless I missed something, I've seen FAR worse cartoons aimed at Christians/Christian faith, and I think they need to get over it already.
Valid gripe? Sure. Should they be coddled? NO!
So, anyone who wants to join in, please do. This is hurting the Danish people, if it were ONLY hurting the newspaper, I coul;d care less. But I DO NOT support ANY attack on Free Speech.... and, IMO that's what's occurring.
It'd be funny if this backfired on the RRMR. <g> (Radical Religious Muslim Right).
