I understand freedom of speech. I would also understand if an artist had a deep desire to draw the Prophet Mohammed. But this is just the second in events that win the 'dumbazz award'. This one wins first place as it was outside of a mosque during evening prayers. It is offensive, needlessly provocative and possibly dangerous. Why do people feel the need to do this? It's not a respected newspaper either, it's just a bunch of idiots, again. It's irresponsible at the least.

If I saw a kid poking a wasp nest with a stick, I wouldn't stop them and if an angry wasp stings them I wouldn't show any sympathy.

NO, that is not 'neat'. You shouldn't joke about things like that.

TY. I looked at both of them. So curious why people think this would be OK.

Yeah now you see why. The First Amendment and the freedom of speech override anything. This is what makes some people mad.

Doesn't. But does that make you want to do those things?

I know what you mean. At the first 'art show' , if that was what one could call it, there was violence. If this has a good chance of causing violence or injury, it is akin to yelling 'fire' in a crowded theater and that is not protected speech.

Like an object? The other person talked about a flag or a book. I think i would just hate a thing I hated, not set it on fire.

Actually that's what I mentioned in other thread if you read them. It can have unforeseeable consequences. But why are we so afraid to express ourselves? We have the right to express ourselves without worrying right? I understand where you are coming from. Collateral damage I get it.

So cater for one group and ban freedom of expression and speech?.
I know many muslims who are not arsed about any cartoon but if some choose to be offended...theur problem.
If they enjoy the freedoms of the west they can moan but not commit violence to tell people that they don't like it.
Don't make up excuses for violence.

We should, yes. I highly doubt these people at this cartoon contest are cartoonists who had a great desire to express themselves anymore than the 'artists' at the 'art show'.

We are on the level. I don't think that will happen but I can see why you and other are afraid. We will not bow to those people. We have the right to freedom of speech. By those people I mean those extremists.
