    There's a difference between recognizing that you have a right to mockery and endorsing that mockery as a good, or suggesting that it is somehow warranted.  

    The entire purpose of this is to be provocative, and by that I don't mean thought provoking.

      they were going about their job when some fundamentalist slapped the marker out of his hand and threatened his family.

      if it really pisses fundamentalists off (of any stripe), im probably for it.

      pointless cultural bullshit deserves to be mocked.

      If someone gives a woman shit about choosing to wear Hijab, and tries to pressure her not too, they should be mocked.

      Trying to demand others obey ones pointless taboos is the height of arrogance.
