Mohammed Cartoons – Counterpoint

The fact that this story surfaced 11 days ago and has yet to make the mainstream media says all you need to know about the balance of outrage in the Mohammed Cartoon controversy.
In March this year a 21 year old accounts clerk in Singapore was called in for questioning under that country’s sedition laws for publishing the cartoon below.
I was alerted to it by an email from Reporters sans frontieres.
As a practising Christian I am much more offended by his arrest, than I am by his posting of the image. And I’m much more scandalised that this has not been covered by the mainstream press. There ought to be an international furore and pressure on the Singaporean police to back-off. What better way to demonstrate to muslim societies that we really do value freedom of speech?

  2. That’s not the Messiah I worship so why worry. Yet if this “cartoon” was published by an islamic then his imam might see it as a slight against their prophet also called jesus.
    Actually islam is a big, sad, brutal comic cartoon.

  3. The only relevant difference between that cartoon and the Mohammed cartoons, is that that one is funny, even if it is funny-stupid. Of the 12 or so Mohammeds only one was midly amusing, the one where the suicide bombers are queueing up to go to heaven.
    People seem to forget that the first priority when dealing with cartoons is humour.
