It's so cowardly to attack the church when we won't offend Islam

Death Hope Life Fear by Gilbert and George, 1984Nick Cohen is sickened by the hypocrisy of the British cultural establishment:

After the refusal of the entire British press to print innocuous Danish cartoons, the stench of death is in the air. It is now ridiculous and impossible to talk about a fearless disregard for easily offended sensibilities… You can't be a little bit free. If you are not willing to offend Islamists who may kill you, what excuse do you have for offending Catholics, the families of murdered children and British troops who won't?
