Pope helps clear things up a bit

The pope said that on one hand we have cartoons that offend muslims, and on the other hand we have Christians/Jews/others who are killed by muslims.

That's what we typically call an assymetric conflict.

How about a little reciprocity? Yes, I like the sound of that.

But when I think about it, no, I don't want reciprocity. I want the murderous animals that call themselves a religious movement to get in touch with the concept of freedom. We have it. You don't. Tough for you, because you're not going to win this fight.

As has been said before, the universal yearning of the human heart is to be free. Free in what we say, write, think, and even draw! So while you may not like the way we exercise our freedom, its not because you don't yearn to be free yourselves (you do!). Rather its because you wish to be the ones in charge. You may be free to tell us how we ought to behave, and as such, you will be free and we will not.

Like I said, its the universal yearning of EVERY human heart to be free.

Thanks, Pope, you got me thinking clearly on this one.
