a few questions
Would Prime Minister Helen Clark have thought that publishing or exhibiting a Mohammad in a condom labelled "72 virgins" is gratuitous?
Would the NZ Herald have published the images, given it has refused to publish the cartoons, but ran images of the Virgin in a Condom exhibition at out National Museum?
If the cartoons are no more gratuitous than the Bloody Mary eposide of South Park, will Helen Clark speak out against South Park? Or does it have to affect trade for her to do that.
If anti-cartoon riots sprung up in New Zealand, would any Government ministers turn up to protest?
Anyone remember how many American embassies were bombed on September 12, 2001?
If a minority promotes a viewpoint, does Helen Clark still think "through continuing to set the tone of tolerance, acceptance and diversity, you just have to further marginalise such people"?Or should people only be marginalised if they are conservative Christians, or that minority viewpoint is not in line with Government policy.
