As far as I can tell.. 1 muslim is officially "outraged.."

Mohammed Asif

in fact.. the article plainly states:


"Dundee councillor Mohammed Asif said: 'My concern was that it's not welcomed by all communities, with the dog on the cards. 'It was probably a waste of resources going to these communities."

So.. one guy had a concern.. and thus the muslims are outraged?

Yellow journalism at its finest..

what the hell do I care what the christians say? I am not a christian, I am not a muslim, but getting upset about a puppy on a postcard is absurd. refusing to let someone into your cab because they have alcohol is absurd. refusing to wear a company uniform because your religion says it shows too much skin is absurd. demanding that a public cafeteria provide a halal menu, but then refusing to eat there because they serve beer is absurd. demanding that a public airport provide foot baths is absurd.

You can pretty much quadriple any number of "hits" you found on yahoo.

Second, even muslims do not agree. When al quaeda tried to turn parts of Afghanistan into a 16th century world, the muslims stated that women covering themselves from head to toe was not part of their tradition.

So please don't make broad generalizations about muslims based on what you find on yahoo.

no, it's pretty self explanatory. I thought it was laid out in layman's terms. guess not. google the phrase and read all the articles. you can't breath without a muslim getting offended. I want someone to tell me why they are so sensitive.

you probably shouldn't say more, because you aren't coming across so bright.

So what you are actually saying is that everyone who disagrees with you is being absurd?

We all know that most Christians around the world share a progressive view, but there are some who are really insecure about what they believe, that they feel compelled to convert others anytime they see the opportunity, or keep telling people from different faiths about their ill fate for choosing a different religion, or trying to convince us that atheists are amoral, they are so insecure that they even reject to study the beliefs of other religions for the fear of watering down their beliefs and simply reject them as things from the devil.

IMO, at least the muslims who come here are much more open to respectful dialogues and debates about the diferences in our religions, they are interested to know more about them, and they hold progressive views towards evolution, scientific progress, etc.

Example is more powerful than empty words.

nope, I am saying overly sensitive people are. a postcard of a puppy is not offensive. to think it is, would make you insane. I think all religion is pretty nutty, but religious extremists are particularly absurd.

I don't think it has anything to do with religion.
