Well, at least, America is still more tolerant of distasteful speech than Egypt...

...In America, you get prison for "insulting the Prophet," in Egypt, you get a death sentence:

A Cairo court on Wednesday sentenced to death seven Egyptian Christians tried in absentia for participating in an anti-Islam video that was released on the Internet in September and prompted violent protests in Muslim countries.

 "The seven accused persons were convicted of insulting the Islamic religion through participating in producing and offering a movie that insults Islam and its prophet," Judge Saif al-Nasr Soliman said.

The low-budget video, produced privately in California, denigrated the Prophet Mohammad and triggered anti-U.S. protests and attacks on Western embassies around the Muslim world

I have just completed a script for a trailer for a future film to be called "The Innocence of Lutherans." It will be an expose of the real Martin Luther, who was actually a dolt! And it will co-star his sexy ex-nun wife! If anyone would like to assist me financially, or would like to act in the film (which will be shot in my basement) let me know. I don't THINK than any Lutherans will call for your death, but I can make no guarantees.

Although I think the Lutherans would make us eat Lutefiske rather than behead us.
