Sounds like a plan...

Western liberals are not only liberated of their commonsense but also (if males) separated from their balls.

Multiculturalism DICTATES that all cultures are equal.....so that barbarity found in another culture is just as valid as democracy they find themselves favoured with(unearned, of course).

Such vulgar idiotarians make the world a much more dangerous place for all.

Liberals also kept quiet on this :

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant, the Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

-- Omar Ahmad, CAIR Founder "

The Liberals' list of hypocrisies and calumnies is quite extensive.

That's a great cartoon, I love Dry Bones. He captures the subject in four frames, without any commentary.

Debbie,

You got that right! Ah, the power of art!

It's no wonder that totalitarian societies (e.g. the Soviet Union and Islam) find it necessary to tightly control art.

Formally, "Art is the selective recreation of reality according to the artist's (metaphysical) values."

Good grief, what if the artist valued things like life, individual rights, freedom to think, the ability to create and produce? It might show up in his art and (gasp!) be communicated to the viewer! Horrors!

So long as the Soviet Union existed, art was restricted to the portrayal of the glorification of the collective, the state; now, in the "purest" forms of Islam, living animals and human beings are forbidden.

The excuse given is that "only Allah can create life, so it is improper for humans to try to achieve this feat." The REAL reason is that they disvalue life, so they don't permit it to be portrayed in art for fear that love of life might be non-verbally transmitted to the viewer.

Remember the Mohammed cartoons? Remember that they communicated some criticism of Mohammed? They were the artists' - the cartoonists' - views of how they disvalued Mohammed.

Golly, what if some Muslim, somewhere, got the same idea by viewing the cartoons?

THAT would be an "oops"!
