It was seven years ago that a Danish newspaper’s caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad enraged many Muslims across the Middle East. The effects of that backlash are still felt today in Denmark, where four alleged terrorists are in court over a retaliation plot in 2010 to open fire on a newspaper event attended by Danish Crown Prince Frederick. All four, who originally hail from Libya, Tunisia, Morocco and Lebanon (although three of them are now Swedish citizens), are alleged to have links to groups in Pakistan, where outrage over the cartoons was particularly intense.Evil losers like these clowns give Islam, and religion in general, a bad name, which makes them much bigger blasphemers than any sophomoric cartoonist could ever be. I don’t like it when other people insult my religion, and I don’t believe in offending religious believers of any faith (as the cartoons surely did), but to respond to bad manners with murder is disgusting and insane.God does not need to be avenged by human hands. Christians and Muslims both believe that those who blaspheme the living God will have to render an account of their words and deeds before a tribunal that permits no appeal. Believers should concentrate on ensuring that their own conduct and words reflect no discredit on God; for most of us, that is struggle enough.
