Home of Swedish cartoonist attacked

“The home of a Swedish artist who once drew a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad as a dog has been hit by a suspected arson attack, police said Saturday.

Lars Vilks, who lives in Nyhamnslage in southern Sweden, was not at home during the attack late Friday night and no one was reported injured.

It was the latest in a week of attacks on the 53-year-old cartoonist, who was assaulted Tuesday by a man while he lectured at a university and saw his Web site apparently attacked by hacker on Wednesday.”

My favorite comment on this story: “If you think that tea baggers and religious conservatives are the enemy, but come up with excuses why muslims are justified in their rage over cartoons, you have no ability to think rationally.”

I’m not making any judgment on tea baggers or religious conservatives, but I find it curious how selective humans can be with their outrage.

And so, now, everyone will be afraid to express anything that might upset these people?
