German opera cancelled from fear of Christian wrath.

Just kidding.

You know, it would be nice if blasphemy was avoided out of respect towards all religions, and not out of fear-for-one's-life from adherents of one particular religion.

Note, also, how BBC summarizes The Comment from a few weeks ago:
The opera furore came two weeks after Pope Benedict XVI angered many Muslims by quoting from a medieval text that criticised some teachings of the Prophet Muhammad.

Oh, BBC. If you and the rest of the media had shown that kind of restraint 20 days ago, perhaps a murderous international incident would have been avoided..
