Today is May 20th, Draw Muhammad Day. I support the concept of this day on the grounds of Americans' First Amendment rights. To be threatened for drawing an innocuous picture, regardless of who it is, is ridiculous. A simple drawing of Islam's prophet should be acceptable, especially if it does not demean him in any way.
The fact is that Jesus, Buddha, and every other prophet of most religions have been drawn. Not only this, but they have been insulted for years by cartoonists. However, our freedom of speech protects this. Therefore, the ability to draw a picture of Muhammad that does not make fun of him is clearly protected by our rights.
The right way to celebrate Draw Muhammad Day is to draw the prophet of Islam, but not to insult him. The point of the matter is that an innocuous drawing is protected by our freedom of speech and should not incite violence.
