    Someone here in SC is advocating that on July 4th, everyone on the internet use paint and photoshop to design an image of Muhammed to use for your avatar or id photo on internet message boards. I love it.

    I would rather be focused on other things that particular day.

    Why wouldn't you want to spend your Independence Day deriding Muslims like the oh-so-clever OP? :cuckoo:

    It isn't deriding Muslims, it's practicing my freedom of speech. And I'm not advocating it, a local writer in South Carolina is. I personally think it's just funny. By the way, how would using a photo of Muhammed as the id for an internet message board be deriding to Muslims?

    I saw you had under your posts a quote and link about "Righteous Operations in Chechnya".

    Does that include the Beslam school massacre?

    Sorry Kalam, I just cannot tolerate much from anyone supporting those who would massacre over 300 women and children in a middle school in the name of their religion. Which is what happened in Chechnya.

    Here in America, we all have the right to practice our religion peacefully, and we also have the right to peacefully mock any religion we want. So far, only one religion has retaliated with death threats to the South Park incident. Still waiting on the Buddhists and Christians, but no luck. Heck, most Christians probably will buy the DVD and laugh along with it, as they know it's just a joke and a political statement. Here in America, we make many statements without bombs or beheadings. Thats so 21st century.

    ...In a way that is purposefully insulting to Muslims. Nobody's stopping you from making a fool of yourself if you choose to do so.

    Are you under the impression that mocking the prophet (SAWS) only upsets "extremists"? :eusa_eh:

    What does Cassius Clay have to do with the internet?
    (and why does my spell checker want me to capitalize "internet"?)

    Tuff luck, son, you don't have a right not to be insulted or disagreed with on your religious, political, economic, social beliefs, etc. You live in the United States.
