Much ado about... something.

What a way to start a work week; lose my scarf, accidentally change the channel before Prison Break starts while sleeping, lose my seven-day bus pass...
So let's talk about those cartoons. One man's pitiful attempt at commenting.

Religion is not something that you mess around with; it should have been obvious by now, after about ten million years or so. Part of me wants to say "Lighten up," but it's common knowledge that many Muslims have very strong beliefs (or it should be common knowledge); those who stood by or supported the cartoons are to be commended, but it's hard not to feel the opponents have a case as well.

It is, however, worth noting that if it had attacked Christianity in such a way, it would almost certainly be a very different story. But that's what happens when you're the most prominent religion in the world, if not necessarily the most practiced.

What cartoons are we talking about? I thought I knew, but then you talked about supporting the cartoons and I was like, 'huh?' because it made no sense to me.
