    Personally I think its pretty intolerant/ridiculous to do this as people are going out of their way to deliberately offend sunni muslims.

    Its like going to a Hindu festival and eating a Big Mac, or finding a Jew and shouting god in their ear.

    Let me guess, you supported the death threats against the Jyllandsposten cartoonist, too?

    As offensive as threatening people for some light-hearted humor? Sorry- no comparison.

    It's more like "Don't take yourself so seriously."

    Or putting a crucifix in a glass of urine or whatever it was and calling it "art"?

    Which was brilliant, BTW. Unfortunately, the people who needed to understand it's point most, didn't.

    The message being what the religious have done to their own religion- pissed on it and used it as a weapon, everything Jesus would have been against.

    I guess the message in the photo I posted is that Christianity is so hot and sexy that it needs to cool off in the pool.:D



    All joking aside, I have no problem with Everybody chalk Mohammed day...

    Islamic law/rules does not have jurisdiction over non-muslims' lives.

    Yeah I don't mind it. I actually looked it up less than a week ago after hearing about it again on the radio. It's worth a fortune these days :).

    Serrano should do a whole series of religious figures. Would fit in with your post....


    Nothing sexier than someone being nailed to wood and slowly dying of blood loss and dehydration :D!

    I think the difference with that, and probably the Mohammad cartoons is that they have artistic value. Whereas a bunch of people drawing Mohammad to wind the sunni muslims up doesn't have artistic value.

    Is that really offensive in the same way?

    Yep, its a difficult issue and there isn't that much of a clear cut line. However I completely agree with:
