"Well... It Looked Like A Good Idea At The Time."

Big-Up to...

Captain's Quarters

When I first read that France Soir had published few of the "forbidden" Muhammad pics, the French side of me thought, "Enfin! Ils ont trouvé les couilles!"

But soon after that happened... encore, ils ont les perdues!

France Soir originally said it had published the images in full to show "religious dogma" had no place in a secular society.

But late on Wednesday its owner, Raymond Lakah, said he had removed managing editor Jacques Lefranc "as a powerful sign of respect for the intimate beliefs and convictions of every individual"...

The president of the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM), Dalil Boubakeur, had described France Soir's publication as an act of "real provocation towards the millions of Muslims living in France".
Er... come again, Mr. Boubakeur?

Let me get this straight. Muhammad was a prophet of Allah, a man, no more, no less.

And you're offended by some infidel portrayal of a man?

If you're so sure about your faith, you wouldn't want to impose it on others. You'd let them come to it, right?

Muhammad is not Allah. Period.

And if you're so offended by such a protrayal done in a X-tian country, as opposed to a Moozlim one, can you not imagine the shitstorm that could be created when one of their prophets get protrayed in a cartoon?

Funny - X-tians and Damjoos don't hue and cry too much when that happens. So what makes you more special than us, eh?

As for the France Soir bosses - stop trying to please everyone. Look at what happened to our Liberal Party here in Canada.

Sheesh. Back to square one, eh?
