Remember when I said Draw Mohammed Day could have serious repercussions? Well, it still might. The Friendly Atheist reports:
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is being investigated by Pakistani police under a section of the penal code that makes blasphemy against Muhammad punishable by death.
Will Mark be joining Salman Rushdie and Ayaan Hirsi Ali in protective seclusion for the rest of his life for the crime of allowing freedom of expression? I don’t know, and it hardly matters. The fact that a country’s police force is investigating him for the crime of talking bad against an unsubstantiated deity? That matters a lot.
I’m honestly having a hard time thinking of anything to say about this. Does anyone have any problem understanding the significance of tolerating this kind of intolerance? Anyone?
