The head of the BBC, Mark Thompson, has admitted that the broadcaster would never mock Mohammed like it mocks Jesus. He justified the astonishing admission of religious bias by suggesting that mocking Mohammed might have the “emotional force” of “grotesque child pornography”.
Mr Thompson says the BBC would never have broadcast Jerry Springer The Opera – a controversial musical that mocked Jesus – if its target had been Mohammed. He made the remarks in an interview for a research project at the University of Oxford
Last year former BBC news anchor Peter Sissons said Christians are “fair game” for insults at the corporation, whilst Muslims must not be offended. Mr Sissons, whose memoirs were serialised in the Daily Mail, said: “Islam must not be offended at any price, although Christians are fair game because they do nothing about it if they are offended.”

This is the power of Islam.

But doesn't anyone see where we are with this?
They have us cowed. We are humbled and silent and afraid to offend.
And I say no.
Kiss my butt!
Mock Jesus? Fine. We mock Mohammed. Mock christianity? I'll wrap a bacon and pork pie sandwich with the bloody Koran and serve it for supper!
Stop, stop, stop being afraid!
Islam must not be offended at any price, although Christians are fair game because they do nothing about it if they are offended.
