The story is loading.... I can't believe you did that handwriting thing...
I was just a bit burnt out on news and politics... so I did it as a distraction.
This Cartoon chaos is distubing the Hell out of me.... I mean really now they expect the whole world to know all about their religion! I didn't know it was a sin to create an image of their Mohammed, I'm just not up on my Koran lessons!
I need 48 hours of news free time.

Story is up and loaded... Heck I like Yon...

AH HA!

Lookie what I found...

"Cartoon Intifadah" Not Backed Up by Islam's History

Does the Quran prohibit creating any image of the prophet Muhammad? According to Amir Taheri, writing in the Wall St. Journal, no.

There is no Quranic injunction against images, whether of Muhammad or anyone else. When it spread into the Levant, Islam came into contact with a version of Christianity that was militantly iconoclastic. As a result some Muslim theologians, at a time when Islam still had an organic theology, issued "fatwas" against any depiction of the Godhead.

PebblePie, thanks for the link. I heard stuff about that as well. I'm sure that not all of Islam is practiced exactly the same (obviously, considering militant Islam and its marriage to terrorism). But I've also heard how it was Muslims who screamed outrage over a Corpus Christi play that painted Jesus in a way deemed offensive to them as well.

mark, you'd have to go to PebblePie's to understand the handwriting reference.

anon.....who ARE you?

Saw a great bumpersticker today and I didn't want to forget to tell you.

Thanks Anna. I took a picture of one yesterday. I should do a "moonbat car of the week". It was plastered all over its rear end in anti-Bush sloganeering.
