In the US, a person cannot be punished for exercising of a right. There's more to it then this but I'll leave it there.
The only thing possible the world needs saving from are the ones running it.
Oh lord, save us from those wanting to save us.
I'm not a Theist.

in america, there is a right to express, and a privilege not to be offended. they are not equal.

it seems that the instructor did everything reasonable to prevent anybody being offended. the person who reported the infraction went out of her way to be offended, by ignoring the warnings and by reversing her apparent acceptance of the presentation.

in america, it is not a right not to be offended. it is a right to be able to express reasonable topic in a public forum.

the instructor was in the right, and the offended complainer was in the wrong, in my opinion.

I agree, Billy. The whole business of showing the so-called prophet's likeness being forbidden is a relatively recent phenomenon.

Parts of our world has become both sick and stupid. In Florida my governor and his henchmen have made it a serious violation for a teacher to even mention CRT or any so called WOKE subjects.

So what if a teacher in Minnesota shows a picture of a dude riding a horse into the sky? Religious zealots are among the worst kinds of fascists.

You are gravely mistaken.

There is nothing worse than me. Absolutely nothing!

We have this situation in NATO now where Turkey is Islam-blocking a Swedish membership because the Swedes did the only right thing and let a dude do with his personal property as he wished, in spite of said property being the Qur'an and the said doing as he wished being burning thereof.

All in all, I think Sweden is far more useful to NATO than Turkey, due to them Swedes being crafty when it comes to making pretty impressive weapon systems, but then Turkey was there first.

I'm not one to burn books, flags or photos for symbolic value, as I find it difficult to buy into such symbols to begin with, but I wonder if maybe we really should burn more Qur'ans - just because we bloody well can.

Freedom of religion includes the right not to be forced to follow any particular religious practice.  It is fine for the Mullahs to say that observant Muslims may not depict images of their prophet.  It is entirely out of order for them to seek to impose that upon non-Muslims.
