Borders and Waldenbooks, two of America's largest bookstore chains, refuse to carry copies of the April/May issue of Free Inquiry magazine. Published by the Center for Inquiry to report on secular humanist issues, the April/May issue of Free Inquiry is banned because it contains reprints of four of the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons.
Borders and Waldenbooks say that they are concerned about the safety of their employees. This is ironic because one reason why the cartoons are supposed to be so bad is that they unfairly portray Muslims as violent terrorists. However, if people have nothing to fear from Muslims, then why would Borders and Waldenbooks be concerned for the safety of their employees?
If the cartoons are unfair and inaccurate, then the stores have nothing to fear (aside from perhaps justified protests outside). If the stores have good reasons to be afraid, then the cartoons are fair and accurate - and need to be disseminated.
