This has been driving me nuts.
Freedom of speech. When did having freedom of speech give people the right to be disrespectful arseholes to people because they 'can'.
Ok. Some Danish newspaper printed those pics of Mohammed, a big no-no for Muslims who believe that you just don't don't display pics of the prophet. The newspaper did this because they felt that they were exercixing their right to free speech by doing so...and completely disrespecting thousands (if not millions) of people in doing so.
Then we have the Muslims who are showing their displeasure by burning and bombing things. As if God is going to be happy about that. I can understand their anger, but torching everything?
I don't understand how some people think that having the right to free speech gives them a right to treat people like shit. Yes, newspapers have printed pics poking fun at the pope or Jesus or whoever, BUT it is not against any religious rule to do so....
According to Muslims it is simply not done to show pics of the prophet in any way.
My whole problem is that you see stuff like this everyday and it pisses me off to no end that some jerks think they can walk around crapping on everyone because they think they are allowed to. Even kids do it....no one teaches them to be respectful and they get this attitude like 'screw you, I'll do (say) what I want'.
Now with the cartoons you have a serious case of disrespect towards a whole bunch of people. WHY would a person do something like that? What a horrible way to exercise freedom of speech.
I have just been so disgusted watching the news and then seeing such large groups of offended Muslims torching things. This crap makes me want to scream.
Ok. I'm done.
