Mocking Jesus

From Yahoo! News:
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - An Alaska high school violated a student's free speech rights by suspending him after he unfurled a banner reading "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" across the street from the school, a federal court ruled on Friday.
Oh no! Bolt the doors! Stock up on supplies! Run for your lives! The followers of Jesus will be rioting in the streets! Pillaging and burning and demanding death to Alaska!

What's that? Oh. Really? No riots? They don't do that huh? Oh that montheistic religion. Sorry.

My bad folks, go back to your regular lives. No danger. My apologies.

Well, to be fair, Christianity has its wackos too: abortion clinic bombers, abortion doctor murderers, etc. However, I think the difference is that most Christians will be more than happy to say "I don't like abortion, but bombing clinics is wrong."

To paraphrase Hitchens, there is a strange reluctance from most Muslims to say "I don't like these Mohammed comics, but burning embassies is wrong."

How many in the last ten years?

How many ever? I think the total is 7. Terrorists kill that many every day before breakfast.

Q-tips probably kill more people in a year than abortion clinic bombers ever have, yet this is their best effort at moral equivalence.

Q-tips can kill? ... I should be more careful.
