    Yeah, the best way to protest an insult about your temper is to kill a nun and threaten the life of the Pope.

    Well, yah, maybe religion hasn't changed much in seven hundred years (not true), but society has. Killing people over cartoons and ill-advised speeches is like killing people over a game of marbles to me.

    Agreed, anyone who would take that extreme because they were offended is a complete moron.

    Dig it. anybody who takes total offense over words rather than action has no grasp of the harm of them; almost and absolutely nothing most times.
