A stick figure too far

We now live in a world where a drawing can get you killed. Not only killed but blamed for your own demise.

It turns out that even a stick figure of Muhammad can be a stick figure too far, even in the so called land of the free, America.

In the comments section a few days ago I uploaded this image that I created on Gimp.

I made it to point out how ridiculous the whole, ‘ you cannot draw the Prophet thing is ‘

It turns out that I am not the first to draw a stick figure of Muhammad.


moblows_1Blogger and pundit Bill Hobbs drew this stick-figure representation of Mohammed and posted it on a now-defunct blog, along with the comment, “Exercise your right to free expression by drawing pictures of Islam’s ‘Prophet Mohammed’ before the West gives in to Islamist intimidation and fear of Islamist violence and makes it illegal to do so.” Incensed, a columnist named John Spragens of the Nashville Scene wrote an attack piece implying that Hobbs had violated some rule of decency. A firestorm of accusations erupted, resulting in Bill Hobbs announcing his resignation from his job at a local university, apparently due to political pressure.

We now live in a world where a stick figure can cost you your job or your life.

It sounds like  Tui Ad but it is no joke.
