Do you feel like you're living in a time warp? 21st Century Americans encounter 12th Century Islamic il-logic.
As someone close to me recently said:
My Lord takes care of Himself. He needs no one to "protect his name" as they feel Muhammad needs.
There was a time when, if a person or group threatened the life of another, especially publicly, they were arrested. Instead, we are so afraid of these people that they hide the one being sought after, and hope the pursuers calm down. Everything we do these days is shaped to submit to their religious demands because we do not wish to provoke them. They can say all kinds of things against anything and everyone, and that is okay because that is their religion. But if we [Christians] invert that behavior, it is ... blasphemy and punishable by death.

The Seattle cartoonist whose artwork sparked the controversial "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day!" has gone into hiding at the advice of the FBI after being targeted by a radical Muslim cleric, according to the newspaper that published her comics.
Molly Norris has moved and changed her name, the Seattle Weekly said Wednesday, after U.S.-born Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki placed her on an execution hit list. Awlaki -- who has been linked to the botched Times Square bombing and cited as inspiration for the Fort Hood massacre and a plot by two New Jersey men to kill U.S. soldiers -- reportedly called Norris a "prime target" for assassination and that her "proper abode is hellfire."
[Note: These protestors are in Pakistan, but this kind of behavior is intended to influence like-minded people in the States to do the killing for them.]
