The Sacred and the Humorous

The BBC has an article about the row over the caricature of Muhammad that was printed in the Denmark press.

I don’t like picking on Muslims. I don’t understand them, for the most part, and therefore I am not really qualified to criticize them. I do have a right to my opinion, though, and my opinion is you cannot expect the entire world to share your definition of what is sacred! Nor can you expect the press to censor themselves to make sure you are not offended.

Be offended if you want, but it is ludicrous to expect that the world will change to make sure you are never offended. God, Jesus, Muhammad, Moses — they are all fair game as far as I’m concerned.
