(Click to enlarge for better reading)

Quick background:

Comedy Central bleeped out all references to the Prophet Muhammad in Wednesday night's episode of the animated show "South Park."

The episode was a continuation of last week's episode which depicted the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit.

A radical Muslim website threatened the show's creators following that episode.

Comedy Central confirmed to that it had censored the show, and that the episode was not available on its website.

In addition to bleeping the words "Prophet Muhammad," the show also covered the character with a large block labeled "Censored."

Now the lines have been drawn and according to Hot Air,"Someone at Dan Savage’s blog" decided to rise to the challenge and takes issue to threats being made and bowed down to by Comedy Central and are creating the first annual "Draw Mohammad Day".

Reason Magazine picked up on it.

.....If readers would like to show their solidarity, please email your Mohammad masterpieces to me here: mmoynihan at The best ones will be published on Hit & Run, which, along with the concomitant death threat, is reward enough.

There you go.
