You say that you didn't write that your God needs defending. Previously you wrote:

I am confident im my religion and in God, but I still feel i need to defend my own religion and beliefs. What's so wrong with that? At least im not scared to defend what i believe in.

There's a tremendous anxiety apparent in your responses which I don't understand. If your religion and beliefs are founded in God, there's no need to defend them. God will defend the truth, yes?

Can a stupid trivial cartoon harm a religion founded in God? You must be joking!

You also seem to think that anyone who doesn't 'defend' their religion and faith is 'scared'. The opposite is surely true. Those with confidence in the truth of their faith don't need to defend it. Real Truth is indestructible. See what I mean?

Relax. You don't have to prove yourself or your faith to anyone.
