The makers of the recent Anti-Moslem vid "production" knew exactly what they were going to get. It's not too hard to imagine. They should be held accountable for that aspect of what they've done.
As a Liberal, a Humanist and a Journalist (non practicing at the moment) I'm highly supportive of the idea of our constitutional right of free speech. I use it all the time.
On the other hand we're dealing with a culture (moslem) that has a large fanatical segment of it's followers/supporters that mentally are still in the Middle Ages in terms of their extremism and ignorance.
For that reason and in this case I believe the makers of this "production" should be publicly outed.
A way of making them take responsibility for their actions. Of making a point that free speech is fine so long as the author(s) are the primary, if not only ones that are subject to the ramifications of their "work".
By staying anonymous these ultra-christian fanatics are not so much pursuing their Freedom of Speech as much as they are inciting an unstable segment of the Middle East and putting untold thousands, including many Americans, in harm's way.
After all, those same ultra-christian types went ballistic over a silly movie called The Last Temptation of Christ which rightly depicted him as mortal and subject to human weaknesses and temptations. And it was much less insulting and demeaning to xtians than this anti-moslem vid is reported to be to those in the Middle East. To me the Last Temptation wasn't terribly inciting nor as overt. I was even a little confused as to what all the fuss was about at the time. Very much a yawn actually.
The only difference is that they, the lunatic xtian fringe, fortunately didn't go out and murder people over a film, at least not so far.
But they're just as capable as moslems are given their ability to kill innocent non-xtians, like Sihks, as well as maim and kill those that practice and support a Woman's Right to Choose, Evolution studies and other related non-xtian (or anti-xtian as they likely see them) issues.
Freedom of Speech isn't just a right, it's a responsibility.
