Call Me Teddy or Freddy, Anything but Muhammed

A British teacher in Sudan was convicted Thursday of inciting religious hatred for letting her pupils name a teddy bear Muhammed, and she was sentenced to 15 days in prison and deportation to Britain. Gillian Gibbons, the teacher in question, could have received 40 lashes and six months in prison in the case.

I have never heard of anything so asinine! Sudan expects other nations of the world to respect it and then they do this.

I have nothing against any religion, but this incident just makes Islam look plain silly. For such a major religion to spawn this type of foolishness is regretable.

Several news sites have actually had letters from Islamic readers who agree that this is not what their religion is about.

So if you ever get a teddy bear name it Teddy or Freddy, anything but Muhammed.
