"I am Charlie"?  :hmm:  Referencing that one guy that's honking off Muslims?

(I have yet to see fellow Christians throwing a tantrum and totally going off on people who come up with stupid stuff like "P*** Christ.")

I wonder if they'd get ticked off at me for having put a Christian tract in a copy of the Koran at a used book store...?  :cheese:

They would indeed!  Watch your back.

Charlie is Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical magazine.  Je Suis Charlie is the way people in France, and throughout Europe, are showing solidarity with the concepts of Freedom of Speech, etc., as has been the case in France since the Revolution.  *Sir, I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it*.  - Voltaire.  BTW, your constitution is based on the French Constitution, and the concept of Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite.

Other way around.  American Revolution was over before the French Revolution started.

Ah, the reality is that their "Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen" was written with the inspiration of Thomas Jefferson and General Lafayette, who introduced it:

Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen

Quote
inspired in part by the American Revolution, the Declaration was a core statement of the values of the French revolution and had a major impact on the development of liberty and democracy in Europe and worldwide.

We helped them do their revolution in essence, but they helped us fight ours. So both countries are deeply indebted to one another for eternity.

Je suis Charlie eternelle! Vive La Belle France!

(of course this would be my 1000th post! Great way to do it, huh?!)
