Sarah Palin Speaks In Tongues

Wow. Apparently Pentecostals are "offended" by this cartoon, and want it removed from Washingtonpost.com. In their defense, they are right that the Washington Post refused to run the Danish "Mohammad Cartoons". After all, they ran in an Egyptian newspaper (as shown) and nobody rioted there.

I often wonder in these sorts of discussions whether Christians are complaining that they wouldn't riot; or whether they are threatening that they might?

Here's what I think. We should be proud in the West that we don't riot when someone makes a joke involving something about our religious beliefs (or lack thereof).

Am I wrong?

Edited to add: It's worth mentioning the original cartoon ran on 9 September - before Palin started speaking in tongues during CBS News Interviews...
