The Swedish artist Lars Vilks was giving a lecture on ‘Free Speech’ at Uppsala University. He introduced a film by an Iranian artist. A group of Islamists in the audience decided to disrupt the screening and dictate what the rest of the audience could and could not watch. They were successful. Later bottles of gasoline were thrown through the windows of Vilks’ home.

Even theists know that gods are weak things, in need of mere mortal defense.

Yeah!....cops dropped the ball....everyone chanting should've been escorted out and the lecture allowed to continue. Arrests for disturbing the peace or their equivalent should have been a good civics lesson for freedom of speech and democracy!! What a win for their Tyrant god who in all his "omnipotence" needed the crowd to shut down the film.

 Certainly not Swedish PDs finest moment. I would love to invite these theists to try this in NewYork, LA, Atl, Chitown etc....and please be sure to call the PD a "fucking cunt" to his or her face....PLEASE!
