“I can draw Mohammed if you can build a mosque”

From the New York Daily News, about the protests concerning the (non)Ground Zero (non)Mosque:

Later a scuffle broke out at the site of the pro-mosque protest a when a mosque opponent held up a sign that read, “I can draw Mohammed if you can build a mosque.”

That seems very reasonable to me. But since this person was protesting the mosque, I presume they want to stop both the mosque and any Muhammad cartoons, perhaps in a spirit of mutual respect.

Sigh.

    This is just a perfect opportunity for many in the USA to express their hatred. Remember years ago when George Bush said that we were not in a crusade? Well, he later tried to hide or take back that word. But that is exactly what he has happily started.

    Isn't supernaturalism grand?

    perhaps it would have just saved time if someone had responded to the idiot saying that he could draw mohomed, if someone had just stepped forward and slit his throat.

    I mean, that person is obviously an idiot, so it would be good for them to just be out of the way, and let's get the true violence started.

    On TV I saw one of the anti-mosque protesters saying something about not being able to build a synagogue in Saudi Arabia. Excellent point, but it cuts the other way. If we wanted to show the world as clearly as possible the difference between our society and Saudi Arabia we would say "Sure, go ahead and build it a few blocks from ground zero. We might not like it, but, in this country we have learned that tolerance is a virtue and that tolerance means having to put up with things that offend you. Maybe you should remember our example the next time someone draws a cartoon of Mohammad."

    Actually, instead of adding comment moderation, just make a daily routine where you delete all the kook comments each day
