in response to reader comment: I will be waiting for an answer

I'm glad we can agree that violence begets violence. That way I don't have to hear any complaining from any of you in the future in case someone gets sick and tired of your methods and starts giving back the medicine you're all so addicted to. Don't forget who got violent in this situation. Weren't the people in Denmark also getting tired of violence in their community from Muslims before this all happened? It's hard to make a group of people so used to slitting eachothers throats over anything that offends them that that's not really how we do things in the big grown-up world. I suggest moving on from the Dark Ages.

So are you telling me that there's been an apology regarding the mass rioting around the world? I'm sure you can refer me to a news website so I can see that because I'm sure that would be front-page news.

I don't HAVE to condemn anyone at your request. (although I know I have already stated it was disrespectful and I can't speak for others) It's ridiculous. Are you guys that insecure? When Christians have seen obscene pictures of Jesus or Mary, they haven't felt the need to have Muslims hold our hands and condemn the artist. We just get mad and offended without having a worldwide-let's-terrorize-everbody-for-a-month festival. We don't misdirect our anger either and make it into a worldwide conspiracy, especially when the rest of the world could see how you were all being used as political pawns by your own leaders. Now, either you're all very naive or you are willingly being used in this way and just can't wait to burn and pillage at a moments notice.

You said, "Moral or Immoral of the story remains the same: trouble could be avoided in the whole town if naughty Johnny and his big uncles could only mind their own business and didn't poke their noses into other households."

So you think Johnny should mind his own business when you come to his home and take over, take advantage, act criminally, and turn his town into a slum? NO. WRONG AGAIN. People aren't going to just let you move in and do your own thing when it's hurting them and their lives. I'm sure you believe, as you stated, we should just mind our own business, but apparently you aren't doing a very good job of being good productive citizens and now you're in the spotlight and we're all watching.

You also said, "If Johnny want to say something to suzie through his mischief it is only fair for suzie to reply back in mischief." Now there's a great idea. Suzie should have made a drawing of her own. Then, who knows, maybe they would have started some kind of dialogue. Now it's never going to go your way. Are you familiar with the court system? You're not allowed to commit crimes on the grounds of HEY, THAT GUY OFFENDED ME!!! With that defense, you'll lose every time.
