Idiocies of Islam - Arrested for Naming a Teddy Bear Muhammad

Add this to the Idiocies of Islam files. A woman was arrested in Sudan because her students named a Teddy Bear "Muhammad". It might actually be funny if a woman wasn't in jail in Sudan over this.
"A British schoolteacher has been arrested in Sudan accused of insulting Islam's Prophet, after she allowed her pupils to name a teddy bear Muhammad. Colleagues of Gillian Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool, said she made an 'innocent mistake' by letting the six and seven-year-olds choose the name.

Ms Gibbons was arrested after several parents made complaints. The BBC has learned the charge could lead to six months in jail, 40 lashes or a fine."
Save us from the insanity.
