Sometime today, the winners of ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’ will be announced on http://reason.com/

We read:
"‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’ is a show of solidarity with both Vilks and “South Park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, who received their own death threats for a Muhammad unveiling attempt in Episode 200. Revolution Muslim, which can claim Jihad Jane as a follower, issued the fatwa against Stone and Parker.

The aim of Draw Mohammed Day is to showcase too many Muhammad artists for radical Muslims to head-butt or murder. The Facebook group is 35,000 strong. To compare, the anti-Draw Mohammed Day group is almost 30,000 strong. Both are gaining members rapidly.

The reason to take crayons to the prophet is to plumb not the tolerance of Islam but the limits of artistic freedom. To the mind of an artist, or to students bombarded since preschool with the First Amendment, it must seem peculiar that the vast universe contains but one thing that cannot be represented visually. Especially when that one thing is off-limits because, somewhere in the distant past, someone settled on one unshakable interpretation of a few lines in the Koran.

Even Molly Norris, the Seattle artist responsible for Draw Mohammed Day, has disowned it. Why? In a Los Angeles Times interview, Norris explained that her cartoons “struck a gigantic nerve.” She should feel artistically validated for riling the masses, but because radicals have decided to impose an Islamic belief on non-Muslims, she can only cringe and hide.

What an interesting religion that is afraid to depict its most prominent prophet. Or is it that Muslims are just plain bad artists? After all, have you seen their handwriting?!?

There are things I hold sacred and do not like to see held up to public ridicule.
It did not stop Big Love or South Park doing it.
However, my faith does not kill people (or even threaten) for doing so.
Maybe we need to start?

"prophet" mohammed is an ugly man, just look at his life. as a 'prophet' What things did he prophesy to come true? His father is the devil, he is a liar and a murderer. Just look at muslim countries to see the 'fruit' of his following.

Anon 6:52, I agree with you 100%. And this ugly prophet fuels hatred and violence among his followers. What he represents and what his followers perpetuate is ugly and cruel.

Religions, especially Islam, expect/demand that everyone cow-tows to (or in PC-speak now = "respect") their beliefs and sensitivities, because they have the arrogance (= insecurity) to think they have the only "truth". If the non-believers (infidels/blasphemers) don't convert, either explicitly or by compliance, they are threatened, and in the end attacked and/or killed.
