English Roman Catholic journalist Damian Thompson, Editorial Director of the Catholic Herald is encouraging the mocking and ridicule of Muhammad to make a point about ‘religious freedom’ to make “edgy jokes” about Jesus and Muhammad. The original tweet, since deleted, made a banal reference to Jesus as a revolutionary leader and Easter. I found it neither witty or offensive. But Damien Thompson senses an opportunity to encourage the author of the tweet to mock and ridicule the prophet Muhammad upon whom be peace – on Easter Sunday!
Nostra aetate (Latin: In our Time) is the Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions of the Second Vatican Council.
