"Religion of peace" demands death for naming teddy bear Mohammed
Thousands of Sudanese, many carrying knives and sticks, have taken to the streets of Khartoum calling for the execution of British school teacher Gillian Gibbons, jailed over a teddy bear.

Crowds demonstrated outside the presidential palace, saying the 15-day prison sentence imposed on Mrs Gibbons for allowing her class to call a teddy bear Mohammed was too lenient.

The protesters streamed out of mosques after sermons, as pick-up trucks with loudspeakers blared messages against Mrs Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool.

Hundreds of riot police were deployed as demonstrators massed in central Martyrs Square, outside the palace.

"Shame, shame on the UK," protesters chanted, and they called for Mrs Gibbons' execution, saying, "No tolerance: Execution," and "Kill her, kill her by firing squad."

The women's prison where Gibbons is being held is far from the site, as is the Unity High School where she taught, which is under heavy security protection.

I think we should all start calling each other Muhammad. But wait: are human beings any better than Teddy bears?

I dunno - I think we need drag queens involved. The only people tougher than drag queens are angry, drunk lesbians.

I read this story in the newspaper...it's very sad. The paper said that there aren't really teddy bears in Sudan, so apparently they see it as naming a ferocious and dangerous animal (a bear) the same name as their prophet. Even though the name is one of the most common name for human males, that's okay because they're humans, not animals.

It did say that lots of Muslim Sudanese people there are supporting her, including her colleagues at the school. And the government didn't seem too angered by it...hopefully they won't be swayed by the extremists.

For my view, they are all whackjobs - the lot.

Step One: Remove all women and children.
Step Two: Remove all moveable cultural pieces of culturalness.
Step Three: Firebomb the ever living fuck out of them.
Step Four: Have afternoon tea.

One student, named MUHAMMED, wanted to name the bear after himself. That's why the name was chosen.

I think you need to pop a Rammstein tape into that sucka, and crank up the volume to 10. That, or Bear Force One.

Jude, I swear everyday I wonder more and more what the HELL is happening to the world! People need to grow up and get tougher skins. Are we so "precious & fragile" that we can't take anything said these days as not being offensive?

Do we have to sanitize everything?

Larry is the most kind, caring, non-racist, non-homophobic, non-chauvinistic straight guy I know, and yet he can't even tell a woman at work, "you look pretty today" because it could be "perceived" as sexual harassment and he could lose his job. WTF? I remember the days when women appreciated being told they were pretty.

What is going to happen as we strip everyone of their humanity in the name of being politically correct is that we are going to become robots, programed to say and do only what has been approved by some "Christian or Political" group.

Heaven help us then!

As for me, give me back my free speech and I'll defend what offends me myself!

hey, hey.. Don't overgeneralize. There are good Muslims, just like there are good Christians. It's just the idiot pack that is the loudest, in both religions.

Yep...you took the words out of my mouth.

Whatever (perhaps understandable) general dislike one may have of religions, it's important to realize that those religions don't cause all of their members to act like idiots.

Just those who refuse to think for themselves.

Forgive me for my ethnocentrism and hemispherism, but...

I DON'T FUCKING GET THIS!!! Me and millions of others.

Don't get what - how this makes any logical, reasonable sense? In that case, I concur fully!
