Sheaf Gate and the War in Canada

First off concerning SheafGate:

Here’s an excellent opinion about the events surrounding the publishing of Capitalist Piglet in The Sheaf UofS paper. And I’ve got links from the editor in the heart of the storm. He points out that there was no outcry at the cartoon depiction of love between a hot lady and rabbit. Before that The Wayward Reporter details a timeline in the controversy. There has also been a blog set up to support the Sheaf, and to counter the boycott blog that got provincial media coverage while the webmaster remained anonymous and bashed bookstores for selling The Da Vinci Code [while claiming the work of fiction is an anti-Christian historical document possibly].

Now moving on to war, a REAL war, the one we’re fighting in Afghanistan. I feel that Canada is justified in staying in the battlezone and assisting the defenseless Afghani people who have no control over the warlords or Taliban thugs. I also feel it’s essential that the House of Commons vote on where our Canadian Forces are deployed. If the House can’t be consulted before the deployment, then they should at least review the action every 6 months, because we owe our brave troops at least that much consideration.

It’s so, pardon me for drawing from recent events, American to send an army overseas without consulting the people’s representatives in an official capacity. It doesn’t show disrespect to the troops or mission to vote on their deployment, it just shows good common sense if we want to remain a democracy. After all, how would you like it if your government sent your daughter overseas to invade Belgium, and you didn’t have a voice in Parliament, or any organization for that matter, that holds the Defence minister accountable if the invasion isn’t in the defense of Belgians and Canadians?

It's not the beastiality for most people - it's the hypocrisy...

Ian, I agree the publishing was hypocritical, but that's essentially what the comic was hoping to reveal it seems. And it ended up revealing more hypocrisy, both in several people I've seen blogging about the issue, and in the main stream media who would see an offensive Muslim cartoon set published, but balk at a cartoon offensive to other religions.

You have to wonder if there would have been an outcry had Jessica been a religious figure like Mary or Mother Theresa...

It is not just stupid to print a picture like that but it is hatefuland delibertly lies in that njesus nwill never engage in any sin,thus such a comic is 10 times worse then the Danish mohammad as terrorist. This comic insults homosexuals who have accepted Jesus and no longer sin. I trust Sak. Human Rights will demand sensitivity training for Sheaf members.

Anonymous I don't agree with a thing you've said.

"njesus nwill never engage in any sin,thus such a comic is 10 times worse then the Danish mohammad as terrorist."
Muhammad would never engage in terrorism or kill innocent people to enter heaven, so I don't know what you're thinking. I think you have a lot to learn about Islam. Try reading books instead of watching Fox News.

"This comic insults homosexuals who have accepted Jesus and no longer sin."
You insult homosexuals, by calling their natural selves sinful because of how they express themselves sexually.


"I trust Sak. Human Rights will demand sensitivity training for Sheaf members."
I trust that the Commission will not waste their time on something that doesn't incite violence against a minority group. Contempt, or satire are hardly worth wasting time on.
