Which is a good reminder: only 19 more days till the 3rd annual Draw Muhammad Day!
It will take place on May 20th, 2012.
This year, I have read, people will try to make it a Twitter-event.
I will be publishing a special post for Draw Muhammad day. It will include a short video of actual pious Islamic depictions of Muhammad throughout the ages, proving the current lie that depicting him is offensive and an insult to both Islam and to Muslims.
In addition, I will be publishing Mohammed cartoons created especially for the occassion. If you’d like to submit one of you own works for inclusion on this day, please, leave a comment and I will get in touch with you.

One of my favourite YouTubers has re-surfaced, with a whole crop of most excellent videos!
VictimlessCriminal has brought us videos that warn of how the Lisbon Treaty lists pedophilia as a grounds on which a person may not be discriminated against, Islam’s attitude towards women and now, he has turned to looking at religions in general.
I cannot immediately find his videos from a few years ago, but he does have a latest series out, entitled ‘Religion is The Great Hijacker‘. His goal is not to argue agains belief in divine beings or indeed in trying to draw a distinction between theists and atheists. He states that, having been on both sides of that division, he regards it as more artificial than we would all like to think…
Rather, what he wants to do is to shine a light at what part of the human experience had been hijacked by religions and used to enforce its dogma, in order that we can take ownership of what is rightly ours.

I could not have said it better: limiting free speech – ESPECIALLY the ‘lunatic fringe’ and ‘hate speech’ – only drives it underground, where it festers and infects other minds. Out, in the open, everyone can expose and debunk it.
