None of the sources described Westergaard as a 'controversial cartoonist', just that his one work was controversial. I think it misrepresents this man and his career. Animadversio (talk) 23:41, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Controversial cartoonist[edit]

I believe that action of cartoonist is a sign of an ill mind and ill fated person who has no morality or true believe in the natural existence of this world / universe. He or for that matter, anybody else has no right to express such nasty and stupid remarks about any religion. I think non-Muslims have murdered / carried out genocide more than whole Islamic history. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 119.154.16.131 (talk) 08:35, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

The problem here is not who has killed more in the past but that a section of the muslim worldwide population still thinks it's necessary and good to kill people who have a different view from them. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.14.217.136 (talk) 12:18, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

  • The problems are exacerbated by idiots like the initial anonymous poster above. Free Speech is non-negotiable and you can fellate a goat before people who care about freedom will cower before bigoted ignoramuses led by power-hungry religious nutjobs. Christianity has a long and ignominious history of "killing in the name of God", yes. So does Islam. It's just an excuse, and a pathetic one at that. --Brian McNeil / talk 12:24, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
