And The Horror Continues

I saw on the news that the brothers involved have said they want to die as martyrs.  So they can go to heaven and have access to a lot of virgins, if I understand Muslim martyrdom correctly.  So it’s really all about getting some?  Seriously?  Here’s another good quote from Salman Rushdie that I came across in the blogs:

“I stand with Charlie Hebdo, as we all must, to defend the art of satire, which has always been a force for liberty and against tyranny, dishonesty and stupidity. ‘Respect for religion’ has become a code phrase meaning ‘fear of religion’. Religions, like all other ideas, deserve criticism, satire, and, yes, our fearless disrespect.”
