They got worked up over cartoon, they REALLY aren’t happy about this.
Is it upsetting to say he married a 6-year-old girl?
Because Mohammad did. Although he may have waited until after her 9th birthday before consummating his marriage. She was reportedly his favorite after his first wife had died.
Is it offensive to call him a slave owner and dealer? We have reported on Islamic SCHOLARS explaining that it’s ‘virtuous’ to do so even now. This (female) scholar is not speaking merely of slave labor, but explicitly sexual slavery.

Because if Mohammad was — as they believe — the ‘perfect man’, that has consequences.
If Mohammad was ‘perfect’ then his behavior is flawless and cannot be called ‘wrong’ (Even if that behavior is explicitly illegal in our country.)

See how this can become a local problem?
So is the sign really Offensive?
