I am a muslim and I agree that a God name or whatever religious symbols should not be used in situations might cause disrespect in the name of freedom. because freedom doesnt and should not cause disrespect to any group of people specialy religious group. Muslims or Non muslims should stop it.
Guys. If you want someone to listen to your opinions (which someones will say it is facts!) at some thing you might think it will be smart not to insulte them!!! ..people will listen to you if you did not .
I know that there is some things in my religion (Islam) that you totally disagree.....(dont say you mean killing people.because killing in islam is forbbiden .. muslims or non muslims)
it is O.K ,because I too disagree with alot of christianity believes. but I dont use it to insult them.
western people mostly belive that it should be no limits for freedom,not even for religion and it means that you are free to express opinions might insult other people in the name of freedom, in Islam you dont use freedom to insult people, you have freedom to say what you want but with out insulting and disrespecting others.because this things like the cartoons of the prophet mohammed are just insulting .it just says that muslims are terrorists of course muslims will be angry.but I dont agree with what some muslims did though.. ...christians get angry when some muslim insults their belives.. it is normal.so if you dont want some one to react of an insulting comment you have then dont say it!!!
you cant have every thing ..it got to be limits that prevent such hate between people. and because of that I belive freedom is not an execuse to insult people.
execuse my english,hope you get what I wanted to say.
some people will do insult other religions.. this people called IGNORANTS and they can be found in every religion in the face of earth.. yes there is ignorant racist muslims ,but there is racist ignorant christians as well.. no one is perfect .. if we are perfect we will be angels not humans.
