Thanks for the point about religious intolerance to other religious beliefs by claiming offence. This is the tool used by islam to proclaim to the free world governments that they are being insulted by crosses, bells tolling etc. Never mind the vicious acts they perform in the name of thier hidieous religion, it is the mind set of the free world to be accepting of all others, to our down fall. The religious governing centers of all religions should use the same tactics ie. raise awareness of islamic persecution in the form of their trying to legislate away our customs and even our religion. Hold mass assemblies denouncing thier (islamic) excesses, organize marches at the nations capitols and state capitols to have legislators respect our religious rights, even if it offends islam.

To quote the quran, to you yours (religion) and to me mine. Target the islamic countries that persecute minority religions, and denounce them and thier acts through the main stream media. I can't do that, but the Pope can! The leaders of all main stream Chistian denominations can also be heard. It is our collective failure to do so, and to be cowed by the cries of islam that they are insulted. It is time we use that tactic to ensure our religious freedoms. Thanks.
