A Lithuanian brewer has angered the Catholic Church by using an image of Jesus wearing headphones to advertise beer.
Let the riots begin!
Police in Berane say the men were fully naked and appear to emerge only at night - usually in pairs. Local media speculated the men could be walking naked either after losing a drunken bet or for health reasons.Health reasons? Give me a freakin' break. I see two naked fags walking down the street, I'm betting it's not for health reasons. This doesn't fly here in Texas.
Muslims are the only people who make feminists seem laid-back. The little darlings brandish placards with typical Religion of Peace slogans, such as: Behead Those Who Insult Islam," "Europe, you will pay, extermination is on the way" and "Butcher those who mock Islam." They warn Europe of their own impending 9/11 with signs that say: "Europe: Your 9/11 will come" — which is ironic, because they almost had me convinced the Jews were behind the 9/11 attack.
But Muslims think they can issue decrees about what images can appear in newspaper cartoons. Who do they think they are, liberals?
Hindus may consider it odious to use cows as food, but they do not resort to boycotts, threats, and violence when non-Hindus eat hamburger or steak. They do not demand that everyone abide by the strictures of Hinduism and avoid words and deeds that Hindus might find upsetting. The same is true of Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Mormons: They don't lash out in violence when their religious sensibilities are offended. They certainly don't expect their beliefs to be immune from criticism, mockery, or dissent.Here's what Muslims seem to lack: a sense of humor.
But radical Muslims do.
That anything so mild could trigger a reaction so crazed -- riots, death threats, kidnappings, flag-burnings -- speaks volumes about the chasm that separates the values of the civilized world from those in too much of the Islamic world. Freedom of the press, the marketplace of ideas, the right to skewer sacred cows: Militant Islam knows none of this. And if the jihadis get their way, it will be swept aside everywhere by the censorship and intolerance of sharia.Honestly, do you folks have to take everything so completely seriously?
