I just can't help but place myself in her position. I'm American, I go abroad to teach in Sudan for experience, and generally, children aren't that wrong in basic moral beliefs. So, the kids want to name the teddy bear Muhammed, as a gesture of goodwill no less. And then, this simple act threatens to put me into prison?! I just....even if you factor in the religious beliefs, I can't fathom how this is that wrong. Fephisto 22:45, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

childrens are gods greatest gift....[edit]

well as far as i know... childrens are considered as god's greatest gift,,so whats wrong if a child treats his TEDDY BEAR as say "krishna" or "ganesha"or "mohammad".. wats wrong in letting a child letting cal god as his greatest companion-- his teddy bear? i understand every religion has customs ,or say enormous respect..still this slight line of difference between respect and dishonour.. common lets get out of this orthodox world and let these small children relate with there religion and culture!!!!!!!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.94.231.35 (talk) 13:31, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
