I live in a world where magazines, journals, and cartoons constantly bash my faith. They make us look like barbarians and mindless violent goons. This is wrong. My faith is important to me, so nobody should be able to criticize it, its believers, or their actions.

I think that doing so is a human rights violation. Criticizing and bashing my faith and its adherents is a violation of my freedom to make up my own opinions because it is a form of intimidation.

This type of criticism also makes people of my faith looked down upon. I'm being persecuted! Help! Help! Help! I'm stuck in a complex! There's a microchip that I just can't remove! Cameras everywhere! Help!

I hope you're joking. Otherwise, you might as well advocate restricting thoughts.
The moment you declare a set of ideas to be immune from criticism, satire, derision, or contempt, freedom of thought becomes impossible. - Salman Rushdie

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. - Bertrand Russell
