Yes, We Have the Right to Caricature God
Newspapers Republish Muhammad Caricatures
The front page of the daily France Soir carried the headline "Yes, We Have the Right to Caricature God" along with a cartoon of Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim and Christian gods floating on a cloud. Inside, the paper reran the drawings.
"The appearance of the 12 drawings in the Danish press provoked emotions in the Muslim world because the representation of Allah and his prophet is forbidden. But because no religious dogma can impose itself on a democratic and secular society, France Soir is publishing the incriminating caricatures," the paper said.
I love freedom.Update: The managing editor of France Soir has been fired.
I guess religious dogma can impose itself on a democratic and secular society after all.
A thimbleful of cognac to Smit for the update.
