I was thinking about the Danish Cartoon incident and I remembered Family Guy. a cartoon that I saw with my 12 year old son the other day. Watching that even this agnostic Jew was shocked. Is this what kids watch on TV now? Where did Roadrunner go? What´s clear to me is that Western societies have tremendous tolerance on how they treat their own religious figures and it is that principle that clashes with the much less tolerant vews prevailing in Muslim societies when humour is at stake.

But Family Guy isn’t the only example, you have the simpsons that are a real cultural icon, that jockes about religions.

I hope that Fox TV don’t transmit FAMILY GUY in any muslim country or we have a third world war.
