I am really curious what people think about the Jihad Jane story in the context of online fantasy.
Satyricon331 said she actually did carry out acts towards her goal. She married a European jihadist so she could move there, for example. I haven’t had first amendment jurisprudence so I’m not sure exactly where the courts draw the line between protected speech and unprotected verbal acts, but I remember that whether the speech posed a “clear and present danger” was one test the courts used to use.

NickoftheNorth said the denigration of and blasphemy against the Islamic prophet Mohammed through depicting him (in general and as a god, pig, suicide bomber) is an attack against all of Islam and that because this attack goes unpunished by the relevant state authorities (because these depictions fall under guarantees of freedom of speech), it demands action on the part of true believers to enact justice.
TexDef07 saidWell there are loads of denigrations of Jesus, Yahweh, Buddha, and assorted other deities and no one ever gives it a second thought.
Some faiths are more irritable than others.
