I’m amazed at the violence from the Muslim world. I don’t think they’re convincing me they’re not a violent religion.
I certainly understand their anger. When Christians get upset, we write letters. Storming an embassy looking for infidels to kill? I don’t recall Christians doing that.
But for goodness sake, they’re cartoons. There is hypocrasy on both sides. There are editors in the northeast that are saying the cartoons should never have been published because they were offensive, yet these same editors saying that Christians shouldn’t get upset about “art” showing the Virgin Mary covered in dung. Are they for or against being offensive? It appears they’re selectively being offensive.
And the Muslims outrage over cartoons. Perhaps I could be more sympathetic if I saw the same sort of outrage over the beheadings.
