"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.

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!
