Athiest Dressed As Zombie Mohammad Attacked By Muslim At Pennsylvania Parade

No reports of Catholics assualting the athiest mocking the Pope (Examiner, via Atlas Shrugs).

Tuesday, an Atheist wearing a “Zombie Muhammad” costume while marching in a local Pennsylvania Halloween parade was attacked by a Muslim.

According to reports, the Parading Atheists of Central Pennsylvania (PACP) were marching in a Halloween parade in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania,when a Muslim stormed out of the hometown crowd to assault one of the marching atheists who happened to be wearing a Zombie Muhammad costume.

The atheist in the Zombie Muhammad costume was proclaiming that he was the Prophet Muhammad, risen from the dead. Apparently the words and costume offended a Muslim man, who came out of the audience and began to follow and harass the atheist dressed as Zombie Muhammad before actually choking the atheist.

Subsequently, a police report was filed, and charges in the matter are pending.

At YouTube, the guy who was attacked wrote:

Oct 11 2011 in the Machanicsburg City Parade I was attacked by a violent muslim IN AMERICA! This is proof that muslims want Shria Law in America. He attacks me to pull my beard off so he could identify me and chokes me.
I understand many will say I deserved it, but no one has the right to abridge my freedom of speech and violence is never the answer to freedom of speech. Islam is a religion of Peace? not the case here.

Well what did you expect to happen?!? Mock anybody's religious belief and they're going o react irrationally. What you did was very rude, disrespectful, and so YES you did deserve it.

Christians and their symbols have been mocked since the beginning of this nation yet Muhammad is mocked and other atheists come out and say "this was going too far". No it isn't.

To the American Atheist, 'Atheist' means anti-Christian.
