See here for a historical analysis on The Boston Globes contradictory stances on freedom of expression depending on the religion being criticized. Because let's be clear here folks. Mohammed has not been depicted in any degrading way in the cartoons that were published in newpapers. Valid points of criticsms of any religion are being illustrated in a way that would normally spark discussion. If someone challenged me on the merits of my religion, I would welcome a robust debate; why not these guys?
And LGF's ask: Where did all the Danish flags come from? Good question.
