The Right To Mock?

Andrew Sullivan has a post on the Danish cartoons (you know, the ones making fun of Mohammet) and he calls it “The Right to Mock”. He even has a follow-up on the same topic where he calls the Pope a “fundamentalist” because “sides” with the Moslems on the issue.

Freedom does not mean that anyone can now tread on the toes of another. Besides, if anyone recognizes the freedom of religion, the basic attitude should be respect for anyone’s religion, not mockery.
