Letter to the Senator
I got peeved when I saw a news article saying that the US supports
muslims against the cartoonist in denmark, so I sent an email to Kay
Bailey Hutchison, one of the two texas senators.:
Dear Senator Hutchison,
This is regarding the cartoons depicting mohammed in Denmark.
Yahoo news has an article saying that the US supports muslims against
"These cartoons are indeed offensive to the belief of Muslims," State Department spokesman Kurtis Cooper said in answer to a question. "We all fully recognize and respect freedom of the press and expression but it must be coupled with press responsibility. Inciting religious or ethnic hatreds in this manner is not acceptable."
I don't think that the official US position should support people who are willing to threaten to kill cartoonists just because a cartoon depicts Mohammed. What else are muslims offended by? Women's rights. People's right to vote. Freedom.
If we are going to cave in and be politically correct when people get offended at a cartoon, why bother sending soldiers to Iraq. We should just convert to islam now and get it over with.
Can you send a note over to the state department to remind them that we are on the side of the free press and freedom of speach?
