Chasing the Wind

News. Faith. Nonsense.

Cartoon Violence Continues

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.

  1. Zero tolerance here.
    This must be stopped by any means necessary. Appeasement only fuels the fires of radicalism.


  2. What would make *you* riot? A cartoon?


  3. Maybe, if it was Doonesbury.

    Seriously, I am being asked by the muslim objectors to give up my freedom of expression to soothe their sensibilities. Meanwhile, I am subjected to sacreligious or blasphemous actions that the muslims protray about other religions – Christianity, and especially Judaism. Perhaps the hypocracy is a bit too much.

    To capitulate to the demands of the offended is to base society’s compact on the whims of the intolerant.

    We have seen this recently with the Taliban, and I am sure more abuses are rampant in other muslim countries. For a link on the barbarism this appeasement produces, go to:

    A site documenting the the atrocities against women in Afghanistan.


  4. The fact that they are using a months old cartoon to excuse behavior they indulge in consistently… Well, nothing much has changed, has it?

About Me

Michael, a sinner saved by grace, sharing what the good Lord has shared with me.

Solomon, in the book of Ecclesiastes, said, “I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.”

If you’re not living for the glory of God, then what you’re doing is meaningless, no matter what it is. Living for God gives life meaning, and enjoying a “chasing after the wind” is a gift from God. I’m doing what I can to enjoy this gift daily.

Got questions? I’m not surprised. If you have any questions about Chasing the Wind, you can email me at
