Blasphemous Bear

The Sudan, long known for its humanitarian accomplishments has decided that one of the most commonly used male names in the world is offensive. Well, its offensive in some cases, even though its the same name as many men in their country. Even though its the same name as their prophet, even though it was applied by a 7 year old. And yes, even though that seven year old applied the name to a beloved teddy bear being used as a teaching aid. But, because some dimwit decided it was offensive, and because religious proclivities are allowed to dictate speech and expression.

People think it can't happen here, but we do have our own would be theocrats, and they need to be stopped.
