Draw Mohammed!

Well, it’s almost here.  The day for what will hopefully be the first of many free speech protests against Islamic censorship.

I’ve got a bunch of Muslims (or maybe it’s just one) protesting about this.  Eight comments in the last two days!  Apparently they didn’t look at the articles here, here and here.  Until about 1000 years after Mohammed died, drawings of him were commonplace.

The movement is growing in support.  The Facebook page has 39,000 people.  Google returns “About 1,030,000 results” for “everybody draw mohammed day”.  Even though the creator of the original poster backed out, there appears to be no stopping this thing.

And that is good.  If there is enough support for this movement, if enough people participate, maybe Muslims will get the hint that the rest of the world isn’t going to follow Muslim laws.  If they don’t want to look at images of their prophet, that is their decision.  They cannot force that principle on the rest of the world.

  2. I fully support the idea of having a page to draw mohammed because it will put the most violent religion in the world today under the microscope.
