It is too busy a weekend with board members in town to post anything much, but I offer this comic withe a comment.
Is “the world” really getting less inclined to tolerate blasphemy? Is even the US? Or do some folks have a different view of the past, say the 1960-70s? Or maybe he is thinking of the ’80s? I don’t know. I think that most folks in the US still have a pretty generous view towards poking “sacred cows” although I remember in the ’80’s when all sorts of non-religious concepts became fairly sacred and “out of bounds” to debate. Still, I think Frazz is wrong, I don’t think anyone would have minded if kids had thrown pickle stickers at his painting of God on the roof of the cafetria.
