There's a new member of the Banned By YouTube club. He's Nick Gisburne, an atheist who posts videos criticizing religion. He had no trouble uploading anti-Christian monologues to YouTube. But when he criticized Islam by quoting the Koran? YouTube account deleted. (You can seen the banned video at his site.) Here's Gisburne's latest video (not... Read More

Crikey, can they hurry up and get this over with? Now, he's shouting Koran verses and inciting violence from the courtroom when he isn't snacking on Cheetos in his cell. It's a circus and a nightmare:
Back in February, you may remember, I cobbled together a little mini-movie called "First, They Came" inspired by the Mohammed Cartoon riots. It's a simple slideshow highlighting the victims of Islamic violence over the years. We posted it at YouTube a while ago. No problems. Until last week, when I received this e-mail: I asked...

I'm going offline the rest of the day, but had to blog this.
