Greta, I understand the importance of this as both a gesture and a tactic in combating intimidation. However, I don't quite accept that this is analogous to violating rules in other religions one is not a member of (by eating beef, marrying outside of one's faith, etc.) Because unlike those examples, this isn't a case of just living your life in what you see as a morally acceptable way and having to contend with zealots; there is really no reason whatsoever to depict Mohammed other than to offend. Frankly, if there weren't this widespread tactical action being taken right now, it's hard to see what reason one would ever have to draw Mohammed other than to be a jerk. That said, I don't necessarily disapprove. I agree unequivocally that no one should have to live in fear of violence or even the threat of it because of their expression.
