...there's nothing you could do to stop a major power to do what it wants.

Um, that may be true if you live under a totalitarian government, but in a democracy? not so much (thankfully).

That's the main purpose of elections...and peaceful demonstrations.

China is no(w) in control and I am LOVING IT.

Yes, and what a glorious future we can all look forward to now that china will be calling the shots.

Look back no further than 1989 and the Tiananmen Square massacres (3000 political protestors killed by government forces)for is a glimpse of what the future may hold.

The Chinese government would know how to resolve this kind of "social disturbance" in a major urban center- send in the tanks!

Good for him. It takes courage to speak out and share his Christian faith, and I admire him for it.

Frankly, people who contemptuously break out the religion is the opiate of the masses meme are far more irritating than those who honestly share their own beliefs.

For those who claim that religion is responsible for all the evil in the world- it has also done immeasurable good.

Yes, Switzerland is fairly serious about protecting itself against Islamic radicalism. As evidenced by a 2009 referendum where 57% of them voted to ban construction of new minarets anywhere in the country...

@Zenny11

Christianity, with the commandment to "Love thy neighbor as thyself", formed the foundation of democracy. Can you say the same for Islam? What shining civilization would you point to as an example of Islamic superiority? Saudi Arabia? Afghanistan? Iran? Take a look at their treatment of gays -not to mention women- for an idea of their concept of brotherly love.

Why on earth would we give up our right to freedom of speech and expression because of the possibility that ignorant, illiterate opium farmers in Pakistan might get pissed off?? and yes, if you are lucky enough to live in a part of the world that protects the right to freedom of speech and expression, you SHOULD exercise those rights. I'm a Christian and I often read and view things that insult my beliefs, but I deal with it because I respect the rights of others. Why should Muslims get a pass- why is it imperative that we do nothing to offend their delicate sensibilities?
