<quoted text> No DF I have not twisted anything , merely stated it is a right to express yourself. I agree the film was a bad idea , but
the response was off the scale of what is acceptable.
It is not the freedom to express yourself that is at fault, nor the filmmaker for doing so(barring any laws broken in making the film) but it is unacceptable to murder someone because I didn't like it, and unacceptable to America (or me) that someone would.
.. perhaps the movie had nothing to do with the murders and was used as a convenient excuse to kill infidels ??..

.. haven't formed an opinion in this debate, trying to find a comparison. Let's try this:
.. a pedophile in America films the rape of a child.(s)He is arrested and found guilty of an illegal act based on law ..
.. a director produces an anti-Mohammed film in Iran.(s)He is arrested and found guilty of an illegal act based on law ..
.. Iran may ignore the rape of a 12-year-old girl, America the filming of an anti-Mohammed film ..
.. so, what's the solution ??..
Very good point.

I think the difference here is what constitutes a basic human right.

Rape violates the human rights of the victim. No argument there.

But sending out an anti-Islamic (or anti-Christian, anti-Hindu or whatever) message, statement, book or film, is not considered a violation of human rights.

Hope that makes sense?

Yes I read it

I was particularly impressed with the part that stated “The number of these Americans has grown by 25% just in the past five years”

Tell me though how is that that TRUE atheists pray every day, that my dear delusional friend is not atheism, that is god worship without a faith

Basically it’s just contradictory waffle and no more than would be expected form a devotee of davesworld

This is a possibility, it was after all there to be used as an excuse.

If it had not been there then that excuse would not have existed and another excuse would have to have been found. Or perhaps some random act of terrorism would have served just as well. Or maybe nothing would have happened at all, who knows?

In the UK as in most other countries in the world incitement of one sort or another (religious hatred, racial hatred, simple hatred and/or to violence) is a crime punishable by imprisonment

Yes. That is why I do not go by the nation in question's constitution, but rather the Bill of Rights as set out by the UN.

Double Fine not only except the gay culture, but *loves* the lesbian community.

Great cartoons. ;-)

Jesus and Mo cartoons are wonderfully funny and true.
Richard Dawkins

Jesus and Mo make the world a better place, bless their little hearts.
Ophelia Benson

...a philosophical confrère.
Jerry Coyne

The brilliant, celebrated, freaking hilarious atheist comic strip ...
Greta Christina

...rays of sanity in a befuddled world.
Keri Hulme

The liveliest depictions of Muhammad currently available...
Malise Ruthven

J & Mo is the funniest and most consistently thought-provoking cartoon strip on the Net. In a saner world, it would run in a major newspaper.
Nelson Jones, Heresy Corner

Consistently amusing, frequently thought-provoking and often heart-warming.
New Humanist

Wittily captures much of the absurdity of religious apologetics.
Mano Singham

...wonderfully brilliant and witty.
Miranda Celeste Hale

Too good for words.

Fatwa?
Jihad?
Crusades?
Missionaries?
Martyrs?
TV evangelists?
Faith Healers?
Clergy and special garments ?

Lol -!

Religion is hilarious - comedy material only. Superstition organized by cults

Big roaches will eat the silicone pads on eyeglass. You would be amazed on what they can gnaw through. Their legs alone are like saw blades and hard.
