A courageous artist

A courageous artist, here? Um - no. In Sweden.

The only "courage" that American artists display is having the prediliction of taking the path of least resistance. They're happy to smoke weed, chat about the latest Daily KOS posting and place a cross in urine and then lay back and wait for the kudos to come rolling in!

If you want to see courage in action, you have no further to look than Lars Vilks. Vilks started to test the boundaries of Muslim sensitivities when he began drawing Mohammed's head on that of a dog. The drawings are fairly crude and innocent. Here's a sample of one:



And not suprising, Vilks is getting death threats. Swedish police have advised him to abandon his home. He won't and I don't blame him.

God bless him for having the backbone to take a stand against these 7th Century throw-backs!

So let me get this straight, it's an act of "courage" and a display of "backbone" to gratuituously insult roughly 1 billion people who have done you no harm? Interesting.

Time for a holy war! Lets start the crusades all over again.

It comes down to whether you want to maintain free speech, and freedom of expression in a society or, you want unflinching obedience to religion.

You pick. If you want the latter, go live in Yemen. There was no insult with those drawings - the "mooslems" are upset because we kafir are violating Koranic law by displaying an image of Mohammed.

Fuck them! If they don't like how we live, say and do then let them go back to their country of origin.

America must follow U.N. directives soon. Your 2nd Amendment will be void.
