    "sacrilegious [sic] anti-Islamic" movie."  Sacrilege implies something is sacred.  It was an "anti-Islamic" movie.  You should have left it at that.  Some of us have a lot of trouble believing in "sacred" nonsense, whether it is Islamic, Christian, Jewish or whatveer.

    •  something that's sacrilegious (0+ / 0-)

      is by definition desecrating a particular religious group. The word was intentionally used, and would have equally applied regardless of any faith attacked.

      oops. I hope the gate wasn't too expensive.

      •  forgive me for being argumentative... (0+ / 0-)

        ...but to "desecrate" is defined as treating something "sacred" with great disrespect.  You may have, in fact, chosen your words carefully to imply what you wanted.  I simply refuse to buy into the words you have chosen.  Muslims may think the Koran is sacred, and Catholics believe the Bible is sacred.  Some of us don't agree.
