Then those hundreds of thousands of people need to move to another country.
It's bad enough the way our governments steal our freedoms now we have to give them up for immigrants?
Sounds like the want a culture war, they should be careful what they demand. And if the cartoon offends them, they are free not to read it.
Millions have died to leave us the freedoms we supposed enjoy.
So we should give them up so a few hundred more won't die?

No, listen to what I am saying!
Why is it so hard for people to read plain English?!
I agree with you, it is wrong. I am not suggesting that we should give up freedoms or that these religious fanatics should be allowed to dictate
anything in our countries.
This doesn't change the fact that this will cause massive violence and civil unrest, and all because of the decision to print something that they
KNEW would cause it!
I'm not saying that they shouldn't have printed it to placate anyone. I'm saying that the safety of others should be priority, over and above their
desire for attention!
They're not making a valid statement. This isn't journalism. They are not being sensible or level headed. They knew what this would cause, and they
have chosen to pour more oil on the fire for nothing more than publicity.
Once again, I AGREE WITH THE SENTIMENT HERE! These religious crazies should f off to a country where freedom of opinion and expression is not
permitted. If they don't like the freedoms we have in our societies they shouldn't be living here.
What I am saying is that the right to print something does not automatically remove responsibility for it. You cannot just ignore common sense and
REALITY - however horrid that reality is - because you want to piss people off!
This is about the reality of the world we live in and the responsibility we all have. It is incredibly irresponsible to be printing this kind of
thing, in the middle of the turmoil already engulfing numerous nations. I agree with you that it is wrong to restrict freedoms, and I am not
suggesting that we should. I am saying that people should be responsible, and think about the consequences of their actions before they use their
freedoms for purposes other than genuine debate.
Is that clear enough? Do people know what I'm saying or is this going to get more responses of "you're supporting them!!!!!"
I've tried to explain it, I can't help it if people cant read a post and actually comprehend English.
