Their Religious Nuts are Nuttier Than Our Religious Nuts

In case you hadn't reflected on that in awhile. Nothing interesting to link to, and you already know the story. (Though here's a gratuitous and mostly useless link.) I haven't looked diligently, but short superficial searching failed to turn up links to the cartoons in question. I want to see 'em, but I also want to link to 'em. I'd never let the Christian right get away with this without ridiculing them...and I want to be fair about this.

But, jeez, it's like these guys are practically making fun of themselves.

Despite all the recent idiocy on our part, it's a damn good thing that the liberal Western democracies have the biggest guns.

"Al-Sistani, who wields enormous influence over Iraq's majority Shiites, suggested militant Muslims were partly to blame. He referred to "misguided and oppressive" segments of the Muslim community and said their actions "projected a distorted and dark image of the faith of justice, love and brotherhood."

Wow. Very welcome words. Every once in awhile I think it's going to be all right.

The pics are posted today at Reason Hit & Run

Some of them are tasteless. What's interesting is the most tasteless and blasphemous were put out by a bunch of radical SOBs who are just trying to foment more trouble. It surely shows that there's plenty of bad faith in the protests.

BBC's "The World" had a link to them.

(No, I didn't look. I'm just passing on the link)
