Silly comparisons

I’d just like to point out that while Comedy Central shouldn’t have caved to fundamentalist assholes by not showing Mohammad in last night’s South Park, comparing that to Jesus shitting all over the place at the end of the show isn’t really valid. The way they showed Jesus is pretty simple gross out offensiveness, but a caricature of Mohammad is offensive to Muslims because it violates a tenet of their religion. So it’s pretty obviously more offensive. That doesn’t mean there’s any justification for censoring the caricature, but we’re clearly dealing with different levels of offensiveness.
