In its first official comment on the cartoon jihad, the Vatican spoke of the caricatures as an “unacceptable provocation.” The right to freedom of thought and expression, a Vatican statement read, “cannot entail the right to offend the religious sentiment of believers.”
Aw damn. Looks like we are left with the rationalists to take the lead on this one.
Addendum: I would like to add to this post Voltaire's famous quote, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
