This business of killing over a religious offense is outrageous!
The Charlie Hebdo killings is out of hand and I applaud the French for standing up for CH against these extremists because if they/we give in and censor ourselves to avoid debate or because we're afraid of a response, it will be only the beginning of a road to less freedom of expression and eventually NO freedom.
The Sony hack and Sony's original response not long ago is a less chilling example of people who want to impose their will on others. I am glad that the company changed its response and released that movie...craptastic though it appears to have been according to reviews.
Let those who want their freedoms limited, practice what they wish, but don't kill others because you want to limit their freedoms... that is insane!
We are not slaves or robots, we are thinking, sentient beings. All of us will not agree on everything and there will certainly be opinions I find offensive, but to KILL over someone else's opinions, I think, turns us into irrational, unthinking, self-absorbed beings only focused on getting what we want, in this case, blood.
