in response to reader comment: A challenge for Pat, Howard, hr and Pagan BIBLE and VIOLENCE (thanks Amir)

"A cartoon showing the prophet wearing a helmet resembling a bomb sent the whole muslim world into uncontrolled frenzy , stampeding , burning and destroying their own lands and property."

Why are whining about it if they are protesting, boycotting and burning their own land?

"It still rages on in some parts of the world. Can you imagine the aftermath of the prophet's wedding picture?"

I have seen 'cartoons' like that of 'Muhammad' and 'Aisha'. Didn't bother me a bit. Would some people be upset? Sure they would -- just like religious Jews would be upset if porno movie on Moses marital life is made. Or how about cartoons of sexual adventure of Hindu gods? How would Hindus react to that? Sure some people would draw cartoons to deliberately offend people of other religions: such people are called bigots. You are an example of that.

"Into this already unfolding frenzy, an "Amir" has emerged here, frothing at his mouth in a seething rage."

Just like you are frothing at mouth because I exposed you as an ignorant fool for a calling this a 'guarded secret.' What is 'secret' about it? Bukhari was a Muslim scholar. All these hadith were put on the web by Muslims in early 90s long before there was any anti-Islamic web site. If you are an ignorant nincompoop and didn't know, that's your problem

"He did point to an article about the 9-year old A'isha on the web so I could clear my doubts about her age."

No, I didn't point to the article to 'clear your doubts.' I don't give a crap about your 'doubts.' I gave the link because it has all different traditions on Aish's age

Everyone should read the article and the 'guarded secret' (yeah right .. lol).
