What I hear him saying is that it is not alright to make fun of Christians, and even your interpretation, when followed through says the same
And as far as I have seen, everybody considers Muslims to be fair game,
making fun of people is childish and immature, but i doubt you think that. this thread is based on very skewed analysis in an attempt to belittle
christians as radicals who want people killed in the streets.
lets examine the typical muslim response:
radical Muslim website RevolutionMuslim.com, who posted a message to South Park creators on Monday: “We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they
are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show…This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of
what will likely happen to them.”
theo van gogh was a filmmaker who was assassinated after making a documentary criticizing how muslim women are treated.
Several months ago, FBI officials alerted Norris to what they were treating as a "very serious threat," according to a report. At that time,
Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki said that Norris was a "prime target" for execution and that her "proper abode is hellfire."
the cartoonist above is responsible for the "everybody draw muhammad" day, and recieved so many death threats that the FBI advised her to leave the
country, change her identity, and hide.
the above link tells the story of children being beaten to death in the streets, churches being set on fire, and people being burned to death in the
street over some cartoons.
this is the standard muslim response to being insulted, which is exactly what robertson said. now there is a taboo against making fun of muslims. it
isn't politically correct to make fun of people practicing islam, but christians are fair game.
