Absolutely.

And you're certainly right that Christians have had their share of mockery over the years. Do I start a riot over that? Fuck no. God is bigger than the snarky views of some dude writing for a newspaper. Why should I care? Why would He care?

Perspective FTW.

Bush represents the fanatical wing of his religion, so Christians should speak out against him.

Perspective FTW.

Exactly, it's like, let's poke the tiger in the eye to see if it snarls. Oh look, it snarled! What a big bad scary tiger! What the heck, let's poke it again.

I think you can find the meaning of life somewhere in that video, actually.

Free speech only exists at the margins, if people were not free to blaspheme then they wouldn't be free. It may be ill-mannered and provocative but that is irelevent to the freedom to publish.

The consistent demands on behalf of the religious for more special protection (and this is not limited to Muslims) at the expense of others free speech rights is what should be resisted, Mohammed Cartoons and Piss Christ are tools to that end, raising awareness of where those freedoms (such as artistic freedom) are at risk. If there is a violent reaction then fault rests solely on the perpetrators, drawing a depiction of an illiterate Arabian merchant is not blasphemous to an infidel.
