    This guy must be copying the Obama political team's motto of not letting a crisis go to waste.

    The real agenda take freedom for the kaffir away. Of course they want the freedom to build mosques around the world but other religions are not to be allowed to practice their religion in Muslim Countries.

    Oh yes, let us all complain loudly about someone having the absolute nerve to ask for respect for ALL religions and to compound that indignity by calling for peace and asking that the religious followers of Allah react peacefully and kindly to insults (real or perceived) instead of with bloodshed and violence.

    How dare he??????

    40% of Lebanon is Christian and 10% of Egypt is Christian.


    The fact this guy and the Egyptian PM think that because their citizens are too sensitive the US should change its laws on freedom of expression is beyond belief.

    Christianity and Judaism are openly mocked on the Internet all the time (ever seen the Jesus is a jerk meme? Jesus is a Jerk | Know Your Meme). Of course that's pretty harmless but it's the kinda thing that would cause riots if it was Muhammad.

    How much do you want to bet that if Great Moolah Obama gets 4 more years that he fiddles with the 1st amendment to make criticizing religion a crime?

    And this guy is telling his people pretty much that very thing - that it's disgusting and it's hurtful but, in the end, it's harmless.

    I just fail to see how anyone can complain about an actual voice of reason asking his followers to be peaceful, to be fair and to understand that a film or a video does not speak ill of them or their God - but only of the maker of the film.

    I honestly don't know where 13 came up with the rest of his stuff - none of that is in the cited article. They may or may not be true - but whatever they are, they are not part of this particular story.

    He's also saying that the international community should be subject to the laws of Islam.

    No country should be forced to change their laws because another country is too sensitive.

    OMFG! That would sure suck for me as my stance has always been that all religions deserve to be ridiculed because RELIGIONS ARE LIES!

    He's also including all gods - not just Allah.

    No, they shouldn't...and I'm sure he doesn't expect that they will....people often ask for things they know they won't get. Point is, there's really no harm in asking, is there?

    That being said, I am sure there are Christians and Jews here who would not object to ridiculing Jesus or Moses becoming a crime.

    He only mentioned people who are considered prophets in Islam.

    I'm sure your last point is correct, but it doesn't make the Grand Mufti any less wrong.

    OT: What did Mapplethorpe do, aside from sinning in the views of Christians (who supposedly view all men as sinners -- though I guess Mapplethorpe falls into that unspoken category of special sinners)?

    As for Serrano, I'm pretty sure he was Catholic...


    edit: way OT -- btw, Mapplethorpe was actually a very talented photographer. Check out his photos of flowers, for example, as that's something that shouldn't offend anybody -- many are stunning. Some examples are here:

    Which makes his call for peace and non-violence all the more important.

    That part doesn't matter when you hate Muslims and hate Islam.

    You ignore his call for an end to freedom of speech how convient.

    BTW ever hear about good cop bad cop?, here's a hint, the Mufti is the good cop and the mobs in the street are the ____ cop, same agenda.
