  1. I don’t understand the current obsession in media, mostly, with the possibility of a “backlash” against Muslims. It is beyond understanding.
    If these murders were committed by neo-Nazis, nobody would worry about what other neo-Nazis thought. Of course it is a minority, but if they had murdered 12 people in the name of the Catholic Church, we would all near the burden.
    Really awful.

  2. All of the cartoons are in bad taste, some are really gross and some downright pornographic, almost reaching the level of the crucifix in urine, but not quite.
    But, I agree. Show them everywhere. Then, can people please learn that freedom is not the same as libertinism and that freedom is only present in responsibility and personal restraint?
    Probably not gonna happen, I know.
