Looks like the Political Correctness Apparatchiks (those who are working to create a Fascist Theocratic Police State in England, as it almost exists in the USA) have done a good job with their propaganda effort. There should be no governmental endorcement of any religion whatsoever, whether Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity or any other. To refer to Muhammed as the Prophet is to endorce a faith, but then so is referring to St. Peter. He's no "Saint" in my book. So likewise is the government recognizing religious holidays. If people want to take time off for Xmas or Hanukkah, or the birthday of Guru Nanak or Krishna, that's their problem. But neither the folk in the UK nor the dillholes in the USA appreciate the Jeffersonian doctrine of a complete and hermetic seperation of Church and State.
Try to publish anything taken as a possible insult to Muhammed from a cartoon to printed texts like the Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie, a UK citizen, and the terrorists threaten this and that, and we like gutless cowards capitulate.
The next time Muslim extremists threaten to murder innocent civilians and children for some cartoon that possibly insults Muhammed, all the World should stand for free speech and publish in every newspaper, book and show on TV the most insulting cartoons, sitcoms and written jokes about Muhammed, and Muhammed's mother imaginable!
I, for one, do not bend the knee to terrorists, or become threatened by anyone, anytime, any where. To shut me up, you're going to have to kill me, and good luck to you if you try, you'll need it. You may be good, I'm the best!
In keeping with this tradition, here's a joke for you:
What's the difference between Muhammed and a pile of dog doo?
Answer: Not much at all except the dog doo smells better.
Come and get me, you terrorists! Ha Ha Ha, I'm laughing at you. You cannot terrorize me. My will is adamantine, I bend the knee to no man, no prophet, and no god either. I serve nobody and never will. Dum spiro spero!
