It seems that in Denmark recently, a series of cartoons were published that depict the Prophet Mohammed. I’d heard about it, but I didn’t know bloggers were discussing it in such great detail. And yes, I know it’s rather silly of me to not think they would be.
Anyway, it seems that the Muslim world is in outrage at the fact that their Prophet has been depicted in cartoons.
Is there any bunch of people that take things more seriously than the Muslims?
Well, apart from the Christians, I guess, but their seriousness is diluted by the fact that most people who say they’re Christians only pay lip service to it. As my dad used to say, “Sunday morning Christians.” They were only Christians when they went to church. Every other day of the week, they were sinning their arses off.
I digress. The Muslims are getting up in arms about the depiction of their Prophet. Threatening violence, riots, all kinds of things. For Christ’s/God’s/Allah’s/whatever’s sake, let it go! It’s a frackin’ cartoon!
So frackin’ what that some people don’t like the Prophet, or don’t care about the Prophet. It’s not the frackin’ end of the world!
Stop taking yourselves so seriously that you’ll go to war and kill innocent people simply because someone drew a cartoon of the Mohammed.
Get over it.
