Mohammed is sooo last season

December 3, 2007

Just when I think that my brain can’t hurt any more, we get this pearl of stupidity:

A British children’s author who called one of his characters Mohammed the Mole to promote multiculturalism has renamed him Morgan so as not to offend Muslims.

The scary thing is, you can’t really blame him for being careful – we have ample evidence that the assumption of sanity, reason, tolerence and just generally not being attacked by homicidal lunatics isn’t always a given.
