Yes, some followers of islam aren't very nice people

Guess what, some followers of christianity are pretty nasty, as are some people who follow no religion.

However, by posting here and trying to encourage ill-feeling you're doing noone any favours. It's that simple.

1 The show makes a point about free speech not Islam
2 The second posting is about what one group of Muslims want to do to another group of Muslims.

Free speech is a noble concept, but knowing when to keep your mouth shut is even more important.

Christians kill christians, muslims kill muslims, muslims kill christians, christians kill muslims. Don't put yourself on too much of a pedestal. I take offence to your topic name, it is against their religion to characiture mohammed. If the same was about Jesus then I'm sure you wouldn't have as much as you do now. Muslim leaders formented hatred by adding to the original cartoons (ones of mohammed having sex with a dog etc) but at the end of the day your posting will do nothing other than help forment hatred and intolerance (sounding like blair now...)

I saw the episode and was particularly offended by the insulting of Family Guy.

Maybe if something contained in the programme is offensive to Muslims maybe a warning before the programme starts and then they know not to watch it,kind of makes sense to me or have I got the wrong end of the stick?

I think I'm just about on message here. On the subject of South Park, the Scientology episode - not shown in the UK, because Tom Cruise threatened legal action - is a real hoot. Basically, Stan is revealed to be the reincarnation of L. Ron Hubbard. Cruise comes round to worship the great man and Stan calls him a sh1t actor. Tom is distraught and locks himself in a cupboard. Stan spends the rest of the episode encouraging Tom to face up to the truth and 'come out of the closet'. It's also well worth watching in that, you get an insight into the whacky world of Scientology and the extremely shaky mumbo-jumbo foundations it's built on

I'm forced to disagree.

If someone, or some group are driven to do or call for violence because "their feelings have been hurt" or they feel put out that another person does not share their view, or their religion or their taste in shoes they should be pilloried mercilessly by everyone who has managed to pull their lives and their heads out of the middle ages.

I'm pleased to see the lampooning of those locals who think their petty tribal dispute is cause for anyone beyond their own sordid milieu to take any serious notice of them. Likewise the followers of the noncing figleaf scibbler.

stop trying to make trouble

There are real trouble makers I don't think I fit into that category, but if you saw the South Park episode you might notice a bit of irony in your statement.

Hmm. Interesting link. Let's take a look at the GOP friends- Pat and Jerry- shall we?

"It is interesting, that termites don't build things, and the great builders of our nation almost to a man have been Christians, because Christians have the desire to build something. He is motivated by love of man and God, so he builds. The people who have come into (our) institutions (today) are primarily termites. They are into destroying institutions that have been built by Christians, whether it is universities, governments, our own traditions, that we have.... The termites are in charge now, and that is not the way it ought to be, and the time has arrived for a godly fumigation."--Pat Robertson, New York Magazine, August 18, 1986
"Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history."--Pat Robertson, 1993 interview with Molly Ivins
(talking about apartheid South Africa) "I think 'one man, one vote,' just unrestricted democracy, would not be wise. There needs to be some kind of protection for the minority which the white people represent now, a minority, and they need and have a right to demand a protection of their rights."--Pat Robertson, "The 700 Club," 3/18/92
"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians." -- Pat Robertson, fundraising letter, 1992
"The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America, I point the finger in their face and say: you helped this happen."-- Jerry Falwell 9/13/01
"If we are going to save America and evangelize the world, we cannot accommodate secular philosophies that are diametrically opposed to Christian truth ... We need to pull out all the stops to recruit and train 25 million Americans to become informed pro-moral activists whose voices can be heard in the halls of Congress.

I am convinced that America can be turned around if we will all get serious about the Master's business. It may be late, but it is never too late to do what is right. We need an old-fashioned, God-honoring, Christ-exalting revival to turn Americans back to God. America can be saved!"-- Jerry Falwell, "Moral Majority Report" for September, 1984

Can I do my token muslim comment please? (Yes I am one)

ok..

What many people are confusing on the whole Mohammed in cartoon issue is the whole concept of muslims and their handling of jokes with actually offence.
There is never an excuse for violence over such issues but what we must remember is that as usual the small minority is having a far disproportionatly loud voice. The confusion is happening with both vocal groups (ie. the extremist 'muslims' and the complainers / 'jokers') arguing amongst each other and bringing about one upmanship to try and get one up on the other. The real victims tend to be the moderates (on both sides). It must be remembered that by portraying the image of Mohammed is the equivilant of getting a picture of Christ using a cucumber on Mary up the wrong hole to many muslims. The extemists then react to the bait accordingly, innocent christians etc suffer which leads to more cartoons and publishing of offensive cartoons and so on, all the time innocents on both sides are getting hurt.

There's a big difference between free speech and deliberatly provoking. One of the two sides needs to be the bigger man and walk away - from what I see it is far simpler to stop publishing the cartoons and let the extremist 'muslims' expose themselves for the minority prats they are.

South Park is interdenominationally sacreligious and blasphemous.
