Description: Catholics believe the prophet Muhammad is not an authentic prophet. We should called him the false prophet Muhammad and that phrase is every bit as repugnant as any depiction of Muhammad in a cartoon to faithful Muslims. In America we're supposed to be able to argue the case whether Muhammad was a true or false prophet. Elsewhere in the world you can't do that. It isn't permitted. A religion that needs the power of the sword to keep its people from questioning or rejecting the religion is a feeble religion indeed.
Catholics tolerate works of art like The Piss Christ and the Virgin Mary covered in elephant dung as a matter of the First Amendment because we aren't afraid. Christ is victorious. Truth is great and will prevail. That is why we aren't afraid.
