Out of curiosity I read the constitution. In that entire document I couldn't find anything that said you have the right to not be offended. I don't know what it says in Frances constitution but from the way the Frenchies have been acting, I'll wager it's pretty much the same. The problem I see is that religion is about power and control and they are quickly losing those very things in the west. And that is pissing off those who enjoy being under the yoke of religion. If I say or do something that you think insults your imaginary friend, try discussing it with me, don't murder a bunch of innocent people.
