I agree that their religion was not under threat, but I can't even begin to really understand or comprehend how THEY perceived it (the cartoons, etc). They are obviously not rational people. I myself am not religious, so I have no way of knowing how it feels to have one's religion mocked, but it's obvious that there are some people out there who feel so strongly about their religion that they can misinterpret (what we think are) silly cartoons as being a direct threat to their ideology (which is, in many cases for these people, most of their identity).
Going by that logic will you be bending backwards for say an atheist, gay or Muslim apostate who wants Quran banned or goes around shooting Muslims because Islam is a direct threat to their ideology and identity?
