A Pakistani cleric on Friday announced a $1 million bounty for killing a cartoonist who drew Prophet Muhammad...A new car? Let's go kill some cartoonists!
He said the mosque and his religious school would give $25,000 and a car, while a local jewelers' association would give another $1 million.
``This is a unanimous decision of by all imams (prayer leaders) of Islam that whoever insults the prophet deserves to be killed and whoever will take this insulting man to his end, will get this prize,'' Qureshi said.
When will people begin to recognize the ignorance, the intolerance, the sheer hate that comes from "religion gone wrong"? And I certainly don't mean to attack Islam over other faiths, as I think it's a problem with all religions. Our very own bigoted, fundamentalist christian president is an example of this (though, admittedly, he hasn't gone quite as radical...yet).
