You never cease to astound me. Aisha asked what the response would be if Mohammads marriage to Aisha was caricatured. Your response is quoted below. How the heck did you leap from a caricature of a wedding to porno movies about Moses or sexual adventure of Hindu Gods.

"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."

This is typical response, avoid a direct answer, cloud the discussion point. Make it sound dirty and vulgar divert it away from Islam back onto other cultures and religions. Your argument basically sounds like, 'The 'infidels' are vulgar because all they think of is pornography and sex'. You obviously have a perverted view of how the rest of the world lives, whilst apparently having a fixation on pornography yourself, or are you just regurgitating propogandist ravings of your Imam.
