Sunday there was another shooting in Texas. That is nothing new in and of itself, Texas is full of shootings. Hell, when I lived there, Houston led the nation in armed bank robberies.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative was hosting a competition for drawing the Prophet Muhammad. Now, I seriously doubt that anyone in this “competition” was attempting to show any respect for the prophet. More than likely they were mocking the prophet in their “freedom of speech” tantrum.
The American Freedom Defense Initiative is classified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group. Their leader is an avowed anti-Muslim. The contest called “Draw Muhammad” is not the first such “draw” contest this group has hosted.
