    • 4. Orthodox take socially conservative views on gender issues, homosexuality November 8, 2017
      On environmentalism and homosexuality, Orthodox Christians are largely united in their views. Most Eastern Orthodox Christians – whose spiritual leader, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, has been called the “Green Patriarch” – favor environmental protection, even at the expense of economic growth. And the vast majority of Orthodox Christians say homosexualit […]

    • 3. Orthodox Christians support key church policies, are lukewarm toward reconciling with Roman Catholic Church November 8, 2017
      A host of disputes – ranging from theological to political – have divided Orthodoxy from Catholicism for nearly 1,000 years. But while some leaders on both sides have tried to resolve them, fewer than four-in-ten Orthodox Christians in the vast majority of countries surveyed say they favor their church reconciling with the Roman Catholic Church.

      While the worldwide population of all non-Orthodox Christians has virtually quadrupled since 1910, the Orthodox population has merely doubled, from approximately 124 million to 260 million.

Oh and if anyone decides to post a threatening message I will post them here for all the world to see because unlike them I don’t believe in censorship and I do  believe in Free Speech.  Peace to you all.

  1. The simple faith is the most dangerous thing in this world.

  2. I feel saddened by this post. I believe in freedom of speech as well but that isn’t a green card to insult someone else’s faith. There is such a thing as respect in the world.

    With that said, I find the response of certain members of the Muslim world disappointing to say the least. It was an immature response and unjustified. People around the world have got to calm down and relax, regardless of faith.

    Still, I have many atheist friends, many of them are very close to me. We speak about our differences in opinion all the time in a calm and respectful manner. These caricatures are hateful, immature, and unjustified as well and your solidarity with the newspapers that printed them marks you as such as well.

  3. What i feel sad about is the fact that non Muslims who printed this cartoon got their lives threatned by people with hurt feelings. You should be secure in your “faith” as to not let this kind of cartoon affect you. And what i consider hateful is the violence that all relgions use against each other and people of different or no faith. So, quite frankly, I don’t give a damm about what names you call me., in my book that makes YOU the immature one.

  4. What makes me immature? I fail to understand your point.

  5. If you know our dearest prophet quite well , you will feel ashamed for these cartoons.

  6. omg.. good work, dude

  7. Why to make fun of other people believes what if i grab photo of you or your mother or one you like and keep make fun of it and post it every where. would you like it ?

  8. thanks I am a muslim and this image does not have any impact on me

  9. This extremists are ridiculous. What kind of religion promotes going out and killing people that do not agree with you?!!! Last I checked none do. these extremists have the wrong ideas. As far as the cartoon goes i too believe in free speech; however, this cartoon just antagonizes those that are out to kill. Also it gives the wrong idea of the real Islam.

    PEACE AND LOVE THATS WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT PEOPLE.

  10. yeah this comic basically means that islam is a bomb thats going to explode. with no respect to the followers of islam this is true. you guys are a death cult and dont belong in this world. how many times do we have to kick the shit out of you before you stop breeding like cockroaches in the sandbox? as soon as you guys run out of oil , no country will be interested in you because thats all you guys retain. hey i mean why not, its just a rotting shithole in the middle of no where. lets see how far you guys get, if you dont blow eachother up befor eyou run out of it. islam is a total joke. when you guys are ready to stop acting like 2 year olds and grow up, please feel free to convert to christianity. oh i almost forgot, muhammad is a goat fucking pervert. see you all later 🙂

  11. This isn’t a simple attack on Islam, it’s an attack of Islamic Extremism, which I think is a more apparent concept than Islam itself. I think it’s rightly so to attack Islamic Extremism, because it needs to be banged on the head before it causes anymore damage than it already has.
    If people are so unsecured by “faith” than doesn’t that defeat the object of faith? I also believed faith was to do with absolute belief, and that no physical integer could affect it. – Looking at the way Muslims act in such ways, I’m beginning to disagree.
    I know and appreciate that there are a few (And I mean a few) Muslims that don’t have similar beliefs, or act in the same way.. But just look at Muslim Capitals (such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia), where Women and Freedom of Speech are incarcirated and oppressed. I read an article about woman who was inprisoned because she went to a rivalling family to ask for forgivenness due to her brothers affections for one of their daughters, where she was then denied and gang-raped by 6 men; the conviction was sex before marriage.. I think this type of Mentality is reflected in the response to these cartoons.

  12. Anonymous – I’m not sure how well you know our dearest prophet. You realise that after his expulsion from Mecca our dearest prophet spent eight years fighting the Meccan tribes before eventually conquering Mecca. And of course many of the revelations our prophet had over this time were quite clearly focused on uniting the tribes of Medina against the Meccans. Our dearest prophet was obviously a fighting man and I suspect would be quite pleased to depicted as he is in these cartoons (except in the 620s he wouldn’t have understood what a bomb was).
    And Osama – there should be no reason why the beliefs of any faith, or the acts they inspire, should not be questioned. There is currently a clear link between Islam and a number of terrorist acts. If this is an affront to Islam then it is the perpetrators, who openly say they are acting in the name of Islam, who are insulting your faith.
