"if we can't draw a comic strip, then the terrorists have won."

http://www.religionnewsblog.com/19161/opus-islamism

A popular comic strip that poked fun at the Rev. Jerry Falwell without incident one week ago was deemed too controversial to run over the weekend because this time it took a humorous swipe at Muslim fundamentalists.

...

Sources told FOXNews.com that the strips were shown to Muslim staffers at The Washington Post to gauge their reaction, and they responded “emotionally” to the depiction of a woman dressed in traditional Muslim garb and espousing conservative Islamic views.

not that i shed any tears when falwell passed, but...

wrap your head around the idea that it's now more politically correct to speak ill of the dead than it is to comment on violent fundamentalist subsects of islam.

if hamas, wahabi, and hezbollah were offshoots of christianity, we'd be using the same word we use for the FLDS- cult.

where do these people get the idea that they have the right to not be offended by anything?
