This thing makes me sick
http://www.voanews.com/content/facebook-...11423.html

I don't know where to post this so I chose this forum.

This is so weird. I mean what he did is kind of wrong, but the response is so over the top.

Different note does news go in world news or can I post interesting articles here (in this thread)

It's not just sick. It's flat out dangerous. Being jailed for what you believe or don't believe is very Orwellian/Fahrenheit451ish.

RE: This thing makes me sick
I'm not following how what he did was wrong.

It might not have been the best decision- but it was not morally wrong. He hurt nobody, he only caused them to be offended. It is the overreaction of the Muslim community and the state that was wrong.

The man posted controversial messages on the Facebook page. And he posted controversial (and offensive to Muslims) cartoons. It may have been insensitive, but it wasn't wrong. Jail time is a horrible response. Any legal action whatsoever is bad in my opinion. Sounds like Jakarta has some "getting with the times" to do.

Also, in response to your question- this is something that I would probably put in world news.

Here is the trouble: Even if a christian would stand up for this man, their arguments are weak. If a christian who believes in the religious nonsense of their religion they are open to illogical non belief. How can they criticize another's belief (which they believe with the same conventions) as being ludicrous.

Why are you still reading this line when it is obviously my signature line?

Well I can stand up strong for atheists. I don't care what the religion is, being jailed because someone was "offended" is just wrong.

I wonder what chance this has of being overturned. It seems like every year the hard liners get more vocal. I'd love it if the world became a more secular place but... maybe the hard liners will win...

Interestingly enough, in Canada you can get jailed for Hate speech. Ann Coulter was told not to come speak in Canada because of her Anti-Muslim sentiments. Although What's his face didn't necessarily say anything as derogatory he should have thought out what he did. remember we are talking about a religion in which even the portrayal of Mohammed is considered a crime. Remember Denmark. I don't walk down bronx with a Martin luther king junior t-shirt making him look bad. I'm going to get my ass kicked and no one would blink an eye

I'm homophobic in the same way that I'm arachnophobic. I'm not scared of gay people but I'm going to scream if I find one in my bath.

Up to the heretic, smack, smack, smack!
Down to the jail went Good St. Nick!

When people say WWJD just remember that flipping tables and whipping people is still a valid option.

it was kinda reckless from a certain perspective considering where he was but it is still madness that such rules are being enforced in this era - whats next burning at the stake?
if the hard liners win we might as well kiss our asses good bye

Is Fahrenheit 451 a book you'd recommend? 1984 is my favorite book of all time.
