Charlie Hebdo Gets Smackdown For Mockin' the Prophet

It was "an act of violence," fumes this dude:
Charlie Hebdo, like the Danish magazine Jyllands-Posten several years ago, did not simply publish images of the Prophet. That, on its own, would probably have occasioned little comment. The difficulty lay in the evident intention to mock, deride and wound. To portray the Prophet naked, or with a bomb in his turban, was not the simple manufacturing of a graven image. It was received, and rightly so, as a deliberate insult to an already maligned and vulnerable community.
Time for that "vulnerable community" to grow a thicker skin, pal.
