Why I'm not a libertarian

About the offensive cartoon, just because you have the legal right to say something doesn't mean you should say it. Nor does it entitle you to be above criticism. A lot of European Muslims have made fools of themselves over piggy banks and the graphics on ice cream lids, just as a lot of Catholics have claiming the image of Mary on a hotcake, or a cut tree limb as miracles, but that's no reason to abuse their beliefs.

Personally, I believe that terrorism is a greater blasphemy than a picture of Mohammed. All three religions should remember the scripture about "making a man an offender for a word" or a drawing. I think that the people leading these riots over the Danish cartoons are evil men who wouldn't know Allah from the man in the moon, but they're like nature. You don't go poking a bear with a sharp stick just because you dislike its bad temper.
