Gay Mohammed Pictures Published

Reuters publishes image of gay Mohammed. Ballsy. Who are we to not publish pictures of Mohammed....as a gay man? Let the fatwas roll in!


CJ has the details including news that Fox is Jonesing for a fatwa, too.

It's actually an image of Mohammed and his gay lover, Jesus Christ. I call it: gay Mohammed eating pudding. Offensive? Yes. But where will the first death threats come from: Christians offended over gay Jesus or Muslims offended over Mohammed pictures?

Answer below.

Zero guesses:

Speaking on the telephone from an unspecified location in the Netherlands last week, the artist, an Iranian exile who goes by the pseudonym of Sooreh Hera, said she had been threatened with “execution”. She accused the director of the municipal museum in The Hague of cowardice for caving in to Muslim extremists.
It's also a trick question, because Muslims are threatening not only over another Mohammed picture, but over gay Jesus as well:
An Islamic group based in the UK has issued a death fatwa against a playwright whose London stage production depicts Jesus Christ as a homosexual.

Terrence McNally was sentenced to death by the Shari’ah Court of the UK as his play, Corpus Christi, opened in London on Thursday night.

…The religious edict was signed by Sheik Omar Bakri Muhammad, judge of the Shari’ah Court of the UK.

Yes, where would a death fatwa be without Omar Bakri Mohammed?
