Now if only we could get Comedy Central to rebroadcast the "Cartoon Wars" episodes of South Park in their uncensored, intended form. I want a world where those two episodes are shown and no-one gets bumpain about it.

It's not the belief itself that's the problem, it's the use of said belief to excuse violence that causes such problems and suffering, every religion has its fanatics but thankfully they are in the minority.

Does anyone follow Gervais on Twitter? He does go on about religion a bit much but I agree with what he says. The idea that people kill each other over what they belive in is just crazy, especially when there's no proof that their gods exist.

Why are (some) Muslims so hyper-sensitive about this stuff? Like let's-blow-shit-up-and-kill-people-over-a-cartoon crazy? I just don't get it.
Because they secretly know it's all bullshit and the idea that their entire upbringing is a crock of gooseberry fool makes people a little edgy. Kind of like how that closet-case dad in American Beauty wouldn't shut up about how much he hated queers.
