A small piece of reassurance that sense sometimes prevails:

An interesting contrast with the "damn mosques" case recently in AD, though I guess there in the end the punishment was significantly reduced also.

Would be nice if another religious group would stop and read this next time someone in Denmark draws a cartoon - then again Catholics aren't killed people who insult their belief that much these days.

If those comments shouted by the executive were not about the Pop but about a certain group of people, he would have ended up in a prison, no doubt
