RE: Peaceful Religion
This is how a "slippery slope" works. A few months back, the GOP claimed Newsweek was responsible for Muslim riots in Pakistan because of something they published. Now we have this claim that we need to censor ourselves over Muslim issues, next it will be that we need to extend the same to Pat Robertson. I say, screw them all and print whatever you want, and if people riot over it, let law enforcement handle it - that is the way a democratic system is supposed to work.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
