Think he knows?
I don't think he has a clue. Sad really. It is amazing how the Jihadihist have learned to use the West love for freedom of expression against us. I have a suggestion, Why don't we limit freedom of expression (for religions) only for those religions who practice freedom of expression in the lands they control.
That someone photoshopped the picture? Probably not.
I don't think it's a photoshop. Here's an article showing a different photo of the same sign. By the way, it's related to the Danish cartoon/Muhammad thing from last year.
You are right - the first picture has a lot of photoshop hallmarks, but it may just be bad lighting or a quality reducting on the cut and paste. There is sufficient stories about this sign that indicate that it is real.
I'll admit it is a pretty ironic picture out of context, but in context the sign does make sense.
Are you sure it's not from the recent Salman Rushdie contreversy?
oh the irony
is his shirt wrinklyyy or somethin
No, its defintely from the cartoons - the photo was taken in the UK.
Maybe he's insulting a family named 'Morans'. Maybe...
I've seen a guy in my town cruising proudly in his pimped out 70s Bronco w/the word 'BODATIOUS' on the hood. I'd point out the spelling error if I didn't think he'd kick my ass...
I respect any kind of discourse that involves writing hateful messages on a placard and holding it above your head. In a society over-reliant upon technology, its nice to see some old-school idiocy!
Here you go!
Would you be saying that if it was a Christian holding that sign?
Why would it make a difference? If it was the in the same context then it would also be ironic out of context and make sense in context.
I would, yes. The 'God Hates Fags' signs are just as bad (if not worse) in my view.
I don't see how it's any less ironic in context.
Is that any way to talk about the actress who played Joanie on "Happy Days"?
Well the sign is clearly referring to the argument that the cartoons in question were okay because they fall under "freedom of expression". Hence it makes sense to say that it can burn in hell (ie freedom of expression). If you actually read what I wrote - instead of what you thought I wrote - then you would see I never said it wasn't ironic, just that it makes sense in context.
It is interesting that you can now condemn an abstract concept to the fires of Hell. 'Pursuit of Happiness'? Burn in Hell! 'Individual Thought'? Burn!!!!!!!!

It's kind of odd to preface your comment about it making sense in context, with an admission that it's pretty ironic out of context, unless you're saying that it isn't ironic in context.
But OK, yeah, it makes sense, and yet ice cream is delicious.
