This is stupidity.
This kind of stupidity is what fueled those who attacked the office of Charlie Hebdo in Paris. There were 14 deaths mostly journalists and cartoonists. They work for a french magazine specializing in satire and drawing political and religious figures. Charlie Hebdo's office was once fire bombed by islamic extremists responding to a nude drawing of the prophet Mohammed.
People will keep on doing something based on blind faith, myth, religious bias or just plain lack of critical thinking. Sure I don't subscribe to the no-holds-barred publishing of editorial cartoons but I respect their right to publish it. Irreverence and satirical pieces of art is important to freedom and liberty. The people who did this killing just made Islam the religion of stupid people.
