Apparently the cartoon has upset a student Muslim group, which in turn has forced the University atheist society president to resign.

/// The association's national spokesperson, Adam Walker, said the two student groups had worked well together in the past and said the offence was unnecessary.///

/// He said: 'The principle is more important than who is being attacked - this time it is Muslims and Christians but in the future it could be atheists themselves. ///

I can see no mention of Christians being offended, so can we take it that it was just the Muslims who took offence.

The Daily Mail have chosen not to publish the offending cartoon, to enable one to come to a personal decision of whether or not the cartoon is offensive.

But I found a copy on the web and have entered it below, please do not look if you are also easily offended.

what is your question ?
"'Robbie stepped aside because he signed up as president to organise events and run a student society.
'He did not appreciate the stress he would be under when dealing with a controversy like this, so he wanted to make way for someone else.'"

So "Forced to resign" is not quite the truth.
More reproduction of others work and no question, what is your point?
Some people just cant cope with life, they should be pitied I suppose!!

Always willing to please, you requested a question so here are five.

As a Christian do you find the cartoon offensive?

As a Muslim do you find the cartoon offensive?

As an Atheist do you find the cartoon offensive?

Could the cartoon in anyway be construed offensive?

Have you actually viewed the cartoon?
if there are a billion atheists in the world and only one complained.

would it count ?
It's not just Muslims that get offended. Someone had this pic as their avatar. People complained and it was banned...

I trust you mean those who were offended, but I didn't think they were also avid Daily Mail readers?
//its not pity that daily mail readers like aog need, its education, understanding, tolerance. //

Doesn't that apply both ways?
The cartoon is quite sweet - connotations of friendship and common interests.

Could it form the basis of a 'funny caption' thread?
Cor thats a BANKSY...worth a few quid I"ll bet!
Exactly!!

And has a message....
1. No.
2. N/A.
3. N/A.
4. Only if you're oversensitive.
5. Yes.

ummmm

And I would think so too, that is a little different to two guys at a bar, and one of them Christ, but the Christians didn't complain.
"I trust you mean those who were offended"

it was one single student who suggested it shouldn't have been put up.
