Well, aren't we just the misunderstood people....

So the Sudanese President pardoned that British schoolteacher whose students named their teddy bear "Mohammed." And yet, "Approximately 40 protestors held a demonstration outside the British embassy in Khartoum, with banners opposing the decision to release her and demanding her execution."

This, ladies and genlemens, is what happens when fundamentalists of ANY religion get power in government.

A passing reference in the referenced article to something said by one of the British peers who worked for the teacher's release gives some hint as to how this was arranged, and I'm betting common sense and decency had nothing to do with it all:

'Lord Ahmed reaffirmed that Sudanese-British relations would not be put into jeopardy as a result of the teddy bear saga.
Lord Ahmed stated that, “We hope that British aid to Sudan continues and relations between our two countries will not be damaged by this incident - in fact, this should be a way to strengthen relations.”'

Get it? Huh? Huh?

We really need to kick some people in their economic balls.

Colorado Springs is next....
