Facebook is currently considering whether to make the offending page inaccessible in Pakistan

Why should FB or any other entity enjoying the exercise of its freedom tailor its site to appease a particular nation or interest? And where does appeasement end? I remember my history well enough to know where appeasement got the world with Hitler. Oh well, it's their right; that's what makes America grand.

But I'll exercise my freedom of expression by expressing this - let the Pakistanis exert the resources to censor, not Facebook's staff.

Aren't all regions made funof in some way I'm Baptist here is a Baptist joke for you. Do you want to knowthe difference between a Baptist and a Methodist a Methodistwill say hi when he walks out of a beer store where as a Baptist will turn walkin a different direction. Upon seeing someone he knows. I know my humorbits but I'm also- Reverent. A Scout is reverenttoward God. He is faithful in his religious duties. He respects the beliefs ofothers. And whom are we to say what is wrong or right  all we do is make aguess at what we find to be true in the society in which we are born too.I don't force my beliefs on any one so the same should be appliedback if you want to make a logical discussion about what you think tobe true okay I will listen to you. If this hurts your feeling I'm sorry O'wellget over life goes on. Here one for every one bet y'all never heard of thisone. THC Ministry:The Hawai`i Cannabis Ministry

It is somwhat cryptic, but I think the point is a Methodist isn't shamed by doing something "wrong" (i.e. buying alcoholic beverages) but a Baptist is.  Who knows, it was somewhat hard to decipher. The christian prohibition on knowledge usually shows itself in obvious ways.

Islam? Really? Don't you know that Islam is the sole religeon of Peace? Ahhh... Islam is a religeon of peace so long as your a Muslum. That is why I freaking hate the muslum religeon. I don't hate everyone that is muslum as I've had friends that were Muslum. But these ignorant freaks that call themselves muslims (spelling is crap on purpose) ;) The muslims I've known aren't hard core but there are alot more dumbasses in that religeon than there are normal human being.

Alot of Muslims believe that they will be blessed for killing nonbelievers but they will not kill you if you suggest you want to convert.  Islam is much younger than Christianity and Judaism is even older yet. I choose the older religeon that of the Tribe of the Israelites. 

And I kinda remember a group of people coming from a certain part of the world that are also Muslims that visited the USA and killed themselves on 9/11/01 taking with them several thousands of Americans because they were nonbelievers. 

So I have a pretty good reason to hate the so called religeon of peace and the majority that consider themselves to be extremists.

Ok so let me get this right, Islam prohibits the depiction of ANY
prophet. (a prophet is :a person who speaks for god or a deity,
or by divine inspiration). So why aren't the extremest 'tards
getting butt hurt about any other depiction of any other prophet besides
Muhammad???
What about Nuh (Noah), Ibrahim (Abraham), Ishaq
(Isaac), Musa (Moses), Dawood (David), 'Isa ibn Maryam (Jesus), Joseph
Smith, Jr. (haha just kidding on the last one)

Surely I don't want to live in a world were we can depict a god.  These people should just move to part of a world and live under a rock please.

Mighty BOB!

This is Pakistan we're talking about.  They already live under rocks.

Your reply to to him is not only ignorant and based on assumptions of his demographic area but also rude. there are many parts of the U.S.A. where religion is almost law, so please, remember that next time.
