On A Side Note to the Previous Post

How is it that the entire world is paranoid about reprisals for some Swedish newspaper running an editorial cartoon spoofing the Prophet Mohammed, yet it's perfectly okay for everybody (including myself) to draw funny pictures of, or in other ways lampoon:
  • Jesus Christ
  • God
  • Buddha
  • Jehovah
  • TV's Bob Saget

I may be wrong (I often am), but doesn't this petty reaction to a cartoon by the nation of Islam actually make them less credible? I mean, if the most self-righteous, arrogant religion on Earth, Christianity, can tolerate a few amusing Jesus jokes, what gives with this whole Mohammed thing?

There's nothing wrong with faith and belief, but declaring a holy war over a funny little cartoon is beyond ignorance.

Thank you!
