Nvm. Missed the timestamp In OP.

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

I agree that no one should be physically threatened but... I'm not so sure that a lot of stuff similar to draw Mohammed day is not intended to offend or belittle. Sure OK, being offended is a choice. But... I dunno. Press and media in UK/US are all very down on Muslims as a whole, from what I see.

And ja, a lot of stuff about Islam is rather nasty and I don't like it. I don't doubt that some of the time or maybe even a lot of the time they do act in nasty ways... but what it does do in a way is... drive a wedge. If in the press Muslims are always vilified, if people make a big festival out of insulting their religion - which is what they will perceive this as - then... they will feel excluded anyway, the kids get radicalised more easily... it becomes a vicious circle.

I honestly don't know what to think about this kind of thing.

People who believe in evil fairy tales need to be offended and belittled. Drinking Beverage

I wanna start a day called, "I'm not sorry you're offended by my opinions or your ignorant, childish, old ass, stupid fucking beliefs. You're an adult. Grow up and quit being a pussy."
