    And no one should face violence for simply expressing an opinion, even a hateful opinion. That said, I don't support taking a big shit on someone's religion and I don't go out of my way to denigrate any religion. Just because I can say what I want and express myself how I want, that doesn't mean I SHOULD do that all the time.

    •  I agree. (4+ / 0-)

      However, when I make a "the pope and two young boys walk into a bar" joke I don't for a second fear for my life.  Or for my "immortal soul" for that matter. Penning a cartoon of mohammed on the otherhand would give me good reason to fear for my life.  That's bullshit.  And I understand people taking a stand against it.
