More Friday Funny, Or, My God Can Beat Up Your God
Apparently, the comic strip "Opus" took a shot at Jerry Falwell a week or so ago and nobody seemed too worried about inciting Christians to riot in the streets. This week, our favorite penguin took aim at the Religion of Pieces and several papers chose to not run the strip because they didn't want to offend the 'slims.
So it is OK to fuck with Christians, but it ain't kosher to fuck with Pisslam??
"TWWEEET!!! Bullshit flag on the play. Blatant use of chickenshit Double Standards in religious mockery. 10 Hail Mary penalty, second down!!"
Here is the "offending" cartoon:

And here is what Cox & Forkum had to say...
The story from Fox News...
A popular comic strip that poked fun at the Rev. Jerry Falwell without incident one week ago was deemed too controversial to run over the weekend because this time it took a humorous swipe at Muslim fundamentalists.
The Washington Post and several other newspapers around the country did not run Sunday's installment of Berkeley Breathed's "Opus," in which the spiritual fad-seeking character Lola Granola appears in a headscarf and explains to her boyfriend, Steve, why she wants to become a radical Islamist.
Sources told FOXNews.com that the strips were shown to Muslim staffers at The Washington Post to gauge their reaction, and they responded "emotionally" to the depiction of a woman dressed in traditional Muslim garb and espousing conservative Islamic views.
There was also considerable alarm over the strip at the highest echelons of The Washington Post Co., according to the sources.
