Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from criticism

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 8, 2015 in Uncategorized |

I had another post I was working on for tonight, but I saw this on twitter and it seemed far more important than my blatherings about the different definitions of space opera.

Now, I admit, my French isn’t up to translating the cartoons, nor do I know enough about French or Muslim culture to know just how offensive these are, but the point is good, nonetheless.

And before any idiot says it, I am not condoning murder.  I’m just agreeing that this isn’t a black and white situation.  It’s not “cartoonists = good; murderers = bad” thing.  BOTH were bad.  Yes, murder is far worse.  But being murdered for it doesn’t make what the cartoonists did right either.
