Apparently 25 major US newspapers have decided to drop the Opus cartoon series because of fears that it "may offend Muslims". The latest story line is where one of the main characters' girlfriend, a perpetual faddist, has taken up fundamentalist Islam as her latest fad. God (Allah) knows Molly has met many such people in her life. Click the picture to the left for a better view of the offending piece. The series has run without censorship up here in Canada, at least to my knowledge. Yeah, bomb the shit out Islamic countries but don't say boo to them in the press. One has to wonder about the rationality of the Americans. How politically correct can you get ?
