Diversity Fundamentalism

I case you have missed it, a portion of the Muslim world is in an uproar over some cartoon portrayals of Mohammed that appeared in a Danish newspaper, the Jyllands Posten. The UN has become involved by appointing “racism experts” to investigate this possible crime of “disrespect for belief.” In the meantime, the paper has had to hire security guards to protect its staff.

“We” here atUnforeseen Contingencies are always happy to help stimulate disrespect for nonsensical beliefs, and revealed religions are the most nonsensical ideas humans have yet developed (although the U.N.’s High Commissioner for Human Rights, Louise Arbour, is challenging this with her idiotic offense of “disrespect for belief”). So, as a public service, “we” are providing a link to the “blasphemous” cartoons.

BUT BE FORWARNED! They are pretty mild, far less offensive than cartoons mocking, say, George W. Bush, and would only offend a particularly foolish, backwards, and illiberal fundamentalist kook…someone like Louise Arbour.
