Those who glibly claim that “extremism of all kinds” is the problem, and that Christianity is just as likely to incite its adherents to violence as Islam, should take note: everyone knows better, even if no one will admit it. Everyone knows that Christians won’t kill you for criticizing their religion, and Muslims will.
This cowardly author “Horus Gilgamesh,” meanwhile, has once again sent the signal that terrorism works. Cowardice rules the day, although the cowardly generally justify themselves by claiming that they’re showing “respect.” In reality, they’re kowtowing to violent intimidation, which only ensures that we will get more violent intimidation.
“Atheist Author Behind Illustrated ‘Awkward’ Children’s Bible Poking Fun at Scripture Cancels Follow-Up Quran Project Amid Fears for Safety,” by Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post, June 2, 2015:
The author of the Awkward Moments Children’s Bible, which illustrates controversial or strange passages in the Bible, has announced that he’s canceling a follow-up project that would have illustrated parts of the Quran because of fears for his safety and the safety of the illustrators.
“After a great deal of consideration and wise counsel, I’ve decided to cancel the controversial Kid’s Koran project we’ve been working on and hinting about over the past year that was set to release this fall. Why? Because of a certain group of fringe maniacal ‘radical’ bullies who equate the transfer of lead and pigments into shapes on paper as blasphemy — punishable by death,” the author, going by the pseudonym Horus Gilgamesh, explains on his website.
