Two big stories on religion in Denmark came out within a few days of each other this week. The stories show very different outcomes of journalistic criticism when it comes to Christianity and Islam. Three days after Christmas the second largest Danish newspaper, Politiken, argued that “Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus.” A few days later, just after the new year, that same paper broke the news that the Danish police shot and wounded a Muslim man trying to kill a cartoonist for a controversial drawing he did four years ago of the Islamic Prophet Mohammad.
I think this illustrates pretty well the difference between Muslims and Christians on the issue of blasphemy.
