Not to sound like an ass but all the muslims on here arent answering the original question asked to help understand what the text MEANS. you are changing the subject by talking about theo van gogh. Saying basically He deserved it. Basically saying that well people can say what they want but we will kill you in the end. If you are all so into your religion why do you care what other people say, you believe your religion is right then they are wrong who cares then. by doing things like killing that shows conspiracey and insecurity that you may think your religion is wrong.

I dont mean to sound like im preaching but Religion in all of its glory has caused more deaths than anything in the history of the world. I beleive that religion was put in place to set moral guide lines for people to live by and in today world there is no room for them in modern society. People dont need it If we would look more inwards toward the here and now we could make heaven on earth. I aslo see religion as a bribe. Stating that if you worship me in this world you will be rewarded. You shouldnt need religion to be a good person just be one on your own standards. The last thing im am going to say is that if you are offended by any of this your religion is wrong. this goes for christians and jews too. the theo vag gogh was just one example for one religion highly over reacting.
