Thank the G – O – D I don’t live in Egypt

I’d have been stoned to death by now.

But seriously.

So posting a cartoon and stating your personal opinion on a certain religion is a crime?  On a deeper note, what the hell Muslims?  You want to be taken seriously as a peaceful, loving faith that doesn’t want to blow up churches and kill innocent people.  And yet you continue to not only pass but enforce laws like this.  Here’s a clue:

If you want to be taken seriously when you say you are a “religion of peace” then STOP jailing, killing and destroying things just because they “offend” you.  All I hear when a Muslim speaks of “peace” is that line from Princess Bride: “You keep using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means.”

Peace is by it’s definition an act of tolerance.  A choice to “turn the other cheek”.  To walk away.  You are not a “religion of peace” when it is in your dogmatic core to not only hate but DESTROY anything which “dares” offend Islam or Mohammed.  Guess what?  There is a wide world out there and you do not make up the majority.  You also don’t live on an isolated patch of land.  If you want to do business with the rest of humanity.  If you want a seat at the  UN and a say in NATO, a cut of import/exports and to draw in tourists, then kindly get THE FUCK over yourselves.
