From the newspaper that brought you the Mohammed cartoons: "Islamism is a reactionary ideology which kills equality, freedom and secularism wherever it is present. ... We reject 'cultural relativism,' which consists in accepting that men and women of Muslim culture should be deprived of the right to equality, freedom and secular values in the name of respect for cultures and traditions. ... We plead for the universality of freedom of expression, so that a critical spirit may be exercised on all continents, against all abuses and all dogmas." Yet another right-wing nutjob? No, Salman Rushdie, Irshad Manji, and ten other Muslim luminaries. The next time you butter your toast, make it Lurpak. (Sully)

Because he got gypped last week: frequent Artblog.net commenter Ryan McCourt has a new blog.
