Muslims Offended by Satire of Jesus

They’ll get their knickers in a twist over just about anything these days, won’t they? It seems a bunch of Shite—excuse me, Shi’ite—Muslims in Iraq are up in arms (figuratively if not literally) about an image of Buddy Christ from Kevin Smith’s Dogma. The AFP reports that the Sadr City Muslims are offended by "a picture of a grinning Jesus they mistook for a Shiite holy figure."

That picture abuses our Imam Mahdi and his holy character, and mocks our sacred figures.

Well it mocks someone’s sacred figures. Is this an implicit admission that one bearded dead guy is much the same as another?
