Symbolic versus Literal

An excellent essay about the Mohammed cartoons by Ralph R. Reiland, the B. Kenneth Simon professor of free enterprise at Robert Morris University concludes with this:
At the Al-Omari mosque in Gaza, a cleric laid out the bottom line regarding the cartoons and retribution:

"We will not accept less than severing the heads of those responsible."

How appropriate.

Either symbolically cut off one's brain and stop thinking. Or they will literally do it for you.

Have no fear! The MSM prefers the symbolic to the literal any day.

This is just my little symbolic way of sticking it to the imam.

UPDATE: LGF has a link to a detailed slidshow of the cartoons of blasphemy.
