oh big deal.... I dont really understand how in Gods name, Islamic law fits in to the picture... I guess when in doubt "or when you have a pathetic story and want it to grab national headlines" blame those muzlims and islamic law who are out there to take over the world!" muwahaha! and its another day with American media pulling the dreaded M word (muzlim) and I word (Izlam) and the American public eats it all up in righteous indignation.
"How dare you infringe on our rights to free speech??!!!
walk around in a nazi uniform or Jesus in a turban with a suicide vest and you'll know exactly what responsible free speech entails.
Here's what I'm wondering ... why did your reporter continuously refer to the "atheist" as "the atheist"? Don't you normally use a person's name within a story rather than labeling them? Seems rather biased and unprofessional. Oh wait, it's TV news, perfectly normal, no rules apply here.
Yes i agree they should both respect every one and their religion and belief.
Thank God for the USA bill of rights which give us freedom of religion, and separation of state and church.
well lets look at the facts here; why in the world would you dress up as a Prophet and pretty much mock a religion? For goodness sakes learn to use your brain wisely. if he walked around as Jesus and mocked him, alot of Christians would be very angry with him, so the fact that this judge actually made it clear to him isn't wrong! A bunch of ignorant people i tell you. What he did was stupid and utterly wrong. i respect the Judge for saying what he had to say; freedom of speech comes to an extent before its just wrong.
atheist or not; i dont care what you think of a religion but the second you start to mock a Prophet, thats a different story.
They are both lucky they are in the great USA.I would have put them both in jail,in the same cell for 1 year and see what happens.Jim Thomas Phx.Az.
