    Bollocks is thinking parody is 'picking a fight'. Anything is fair game for parody, especially something that people are ridiculously oversensitive over. What about respect for people that have respect for the faiths that islam stole its traditions from? Are they to be ignored because they don't kill people that laugh at them?

    Seems like a decision made out of cowardice to me.

    What do you think the reaction would be if a political party decided to run a similar cartoon competition about Judaism with the sole intent of taking the piss out of the Jewish faith?

    It's an odd story. Is he just trying to get a pardon?

    This is ‘parody’ being encouraged by a political party who are openly anti Islam. There’s no genuine humour behind this, it’s being done in the hope of garnering a reaction, so they can add further fuel to the fire.

    It’s akin to Corbyn setting up a competition to encourage the piss taking of Judaism.

    There was a complete meltdown endorsed on here about a piece wall art that was supposedly anti Semitic, and not decried by him wasn’t there?

    If he’s dismissed his own legal team then it looks extremely likely that he’s going to sing like a ****ing canary in exchange for a plea bargain.

    Like drawing a picture of God? I wouldn't think they'd give two ****s.

    People would rather cow-tow to the nonsense out of fear of a violent reaction, which is cowardice, and it's hardly the sign of a peaceful religion.

    To claim they'll react violently is either a factual fear born from experience, or an insulting lie about the religion of peace.

    Really? So you think that ‘harmless parody’ of Judaism lead by a political party would be met with a shrug of the shoulders?

    **** off <laugh>

    My recollection was the meltdown was more people like you claiming their was a meltdown, but the issue wasn't an insult about the religion per se, but a claim it was derogatory to the race.

    All Abrahimic faiths are bollocks, and fair game.

    Why not just do it under the radar, then? I'm suspicious of how this story's coming out, to be honest.
    Cohen could **** Trump, Hannity and a wide variety of other people, too.
    He looks absolutely screwed and so does Manafort. I'm wary of how Trump will react to the situation.

    Similar to the Life of Brian you mean **** for brains?

    You're just full of bullshit and whataboutery. I don't believe there'd be an uprising at a parody of the faith, but if there was, I'd have the same comment for the oversensitive types over reacting.

    I don't follow those faiths, so I'm not beholden to their tenets. They need to respect that side of it too.

    I loved the film "An American Werewolf in London" and there is a scene like that in it.
    Always made me laugh but when I went to a pub in deepest darkest Kent in the 1980s with a girlfriend and it happened to us it creeped the **** outta me...was like a scene from A League Of Gentleman <laugh>

    You mean the life of Brian that was banned for blasphemy for donkeys across the UK and in various other countries? That life of Brian?

    The Life of Brian was made by a political party?

    I suppose it’s possible.
