Why is a faith that is one of the largest in the world and now the second largest in the UK so dangerously outraged by a cartoon in a Danish newspaper ? Whatever can they be so afraid of ?

Is this yet another example of religeon being the 'root of all evil' ? As Richard Dawkins explained in his recent TV series, good people will mostly do good things and bad people will do bad things, but for good people to do bad things - that takes religeon.

Come on Muslims, Christians, Bhuddists, Jews and the rest - the vast majority of we humans on this planet are just ordinary people with the same aspirations, fears, needs and problems. Let's get together to solve the real issues like global warming and feeding the hungry and leave religeous bigotry where it belongs - firmly in the past.

If someone publishes a cartoon you find tasteless, why not just ignore it and take the moral highground ? Savour the freedom to publish your own cartoons about issues that interest you - perhaps make them more inspired and amusing than Mohammed with a bomb-shaped hat ?

Unfortunately it is not the religon, it is the men who use it to their own ends. History is littered with men abusing their followers and keeping them in the dark to control them. Most religions have done this, unfortunately we are living through this one.

Islam is being bent to political ends, just like Judaism and Christianity has been in the past; and arguably currently, although we personally are not threatened by those at the moment.

Klu Klux Klan anybody?

Why am I nervous writing this, could it be Intelligent Design?
