  1. Cooler Katy Perry news would include that she appears to have edited her video for her song “Dark Horse” to allay the outrage and offense that some Muslims expressed due to a scene in the video. In the scene, a man is standing before a Cleopatra-esque Katy Perry, and she works some magic to have him disintegrate in front of her. The alleged “blasphemy” is that the man is wearing a pendent that has the Arabic script for Allah. The editing out of the image is being greeted with elation by those supporting the petition against it. They say that it is a recognition by people of all walks of life that making frivolous references to God in an impious manner is unacceptable.

    Should she have edited her video? Should she have respected the deep, real feelings of hurt and outrage that a significant number of Muslims say they experience because of things like this? Is it “hate speech” in the first place, because it has some likelihood of provoking prejudicial actions against Muslims? A good number of Muslims seem to have gotten very upset about it.
