Tomorrow is "Everybody Draw Mohammed" Day. And I find myself in a bit of a conundrum. On one hand I think it is ludicrous that artists and cartoonists can't draw or parody Mohammed like they would any other political or religious figure without fearing DEATH THREATS from extremist islamic sects. Yet, I know that I would feel pretty bad if my religion was singled out and something sacred was mocked openly.
I remember when this whole "don't draw Mohammed" stuff started. I remember thinking to myself "We should get a lot of people to draw him. They can't kill everyone, right?" And yet here we are on the eve of that actually happening, and I can't decide what to do.
Part of me feels like I should do something. But part of me doesn't want to be disrespectful. and yet another part of me wants to be cool and aloof and not care.
I can't decide. Most likely laziness will trump all and I will end up not doing anything.
