Rap music is filled with the liberal use of the word nigga, regularly call our women bitches, and generally on a whole we have accepted it.

We don't boycott or murder anyone over it. In fact, many of us actively support it it financially, ALTHOUGH it is very offensive to some.

Why is that offensive behavior tolerated, yet expressing certain things (like depicting Muhammad) that is offensive to certain muslims is crossing domr bigotry racist line that makes people buy into the notion that these murders are understandable?

I think the social value and the artistic merit of the CH Cartoons is forcing certain muslims to confront the fact that they have to get over it.

YOu can't live in a multicultural society and force people to ascribe to your religious dictates (i.e., don't depict the prophet).

You don't think gay people should be allowed to get married (or live), fine that's your belief but you can't kill gay people or stop them from getting married.
