There are ways to call for violent retaliation against anyone drawing offensive cartoons, movies or whatever, without formally breaking laws. The mere perpetuation of the concept of "blasphemy" as an offense punishable by death, as part of religious teachings, does it. Why are such religious "teachings" tolerated at all? How can preachers (or any religion) who stand by such teachings be allowed to preach just by adding some disclaim to the effect that "but the current law forbids it so you shouldn't do it" ? I meant, they obviously imply that the law should be changed so that they can kill "blasphemers": their "teachings" are a campaign for such a change! They are self-declared enemies of a society where individuals are free to live without fear of religious fanatics, on a crusade to destroy it. They are not technically an immediate threat, they are unlikely to ever amount to much, but tolerating the intolerant in the name of... tolerance is kind of silly. Tolerance, I feel, is one of those things that should require reciprocity. Religious tolerance should only extend to religions and religious leaders who are themselves tolerant. I used to think that ridicule against such fringe groups would be enough. No need for policing them, for breaking them. It mostly does work. But it's not a guaranteed thing. We've become complacent from decades of progress away from such crazy ideas. But they were dominant once and, we all being human beings like our ancestors were, they can become dominant again if they are given free rein.
