The Protected Status of Islam

Ross Douthat has a smart column today on the irony of the South Park/Islam controversy--that South Park may freely skewer any and all other person's or groups--but take on Islam/Muhammad--oh boy, they've gone too far.

Western Civilization has to stop apologizing for itself, and that includes its history of satire and parody. Threats of violence should be met with scorn and derision, not meekly surrendered to.

....not with a bang but a wimper.
