I received a great phone call from Dan, who’s on the road today, and I am not sure if my signal was bad or if there was other interferance (it was beautiful in Colorado today, and I was driving with the windows down), but best I could tell, he was making this excellent point:
It’s curious that one of our more outlandish and childish commenters recommended the following (vis-a-vis Everybody Draw Muhammed Day):
[W]e target the evangelicals that don’t want gays to get married and stage a “Take Your Gay Partner to the Parking Lot of an Evangelical Church Just After Services are Letting Out and Make Out With Them Day.”
Oh, so bold. The point that (I think*) Dan was making was that, while there are thousands of people across America today who are actually putting their own safety at risk by drawing Muhammed, how far is the average gay Leftist willing to go to pull for his own issues? Which is to say, if our Leftist friends were, indeed, to make out with thier partners in the parking lot of a Christian church, at what risk would they be putting themselves?
Surely they risk looking stupid. But that’s never seemed to bother them. Likely they’d be ridiculed. But do they actually think that the “risks” they take by pulling such a stunt put them on the same level as Theo Van Gogh or Lars Vilks? Or for that matter, any of the “artists” participating today?
Tell you what, you’re so bold…take your make-out session to your local mosque, and we’ll talk about it.
* Seriously, I’m not sure…we had to cut our conversation short, so apologies to you, Dan, if this isn’t what you meant to say, but if not, thanks for the great idea 😉
