If you think it's messed up from your point of view--try it from mine! As an Atheist! Not only are there a bunch of religious zealots killing in the name of their god here in Baghdad...but now your feelings are hurt by cartoons? Hello there...erm, Mr muslim? You know, that publication is for open minded and free thinking people--it's not marketed towards muslims. Its not marketed toward people based on how they do or don't try to force their religious beliefs on those around them.

Even the Christian bible forbids it--but guess what, generally speaking, the Christian bible forbids about 50% of what goes on nowadays which is why they evolved to pretty much just show some face time to their faith. But not you guys...nooo. You would have your idea of censorship forced onto others.

Why is that?

Thats a level of intolerance that makes me truly afraid of muslim people. The idea that one isn't allowed to think and do as they want but is subject to anothers intrepretation of a historical document. I never had any sort of bias before coming over here 2 years ago---but seeing what I do and hearing about what goes on back in the 'real' world...yea, you guys have made me afraid of you. But not afraid in any way that you'll like if you come stomping to my door telling me what to watch on TV.
