    I agree Medusa. What that guy did was very offensive.

    Yeah, this was too much. Usually, things have little "Easter eggs" in them, and they're silly, or cute, or things no one would ever notice (or phallic symbols in Disney castles LOL) but this one was over the line.

    "I don't understand why everyone's so upset" he says, after hiding anti-Semitic messages in a comic series that was originally a metaphor for Jewish persecution...

    If nothing else, we can take relief in the fact that he's too stupid to be able to do further damage

    I don't want to be disrespectful to any one religion or anyone for that matter, but you just don't put religious references in comic books. Especially if you are going to be disrespectful to a certain religion. I understand people have their thoughts about certain religions, but keep that to yourself, don't try to force your thoughts on the world. He deserved what he got in my opinion.

    I totally agree. If it was a fictional religion that would be a different story. Obviously this guy wasn't thinking straight.
