Saturday Night Live Offers Tepid, Timid Take on Mohammad Cartoon Controversy

The show often likes to pantomime edginess while actually providing nothing but soft comfort; this is one of those times.

Meanwhile, SNL is easily beaten on edginess by the nation of Norway, which just took its ages-old blasphemy laws off the books in reaction to the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

The proposal to rush through the change was made in February by Conservative MP Anders B. Werp and Progress Party MP Jan Arild Ellingsen, who argued that the law "underpins a perception that religious expressions and symbols are entitled to a special protection". "This is very unfortunate signal to send, and it is time that society clearly stands up for freedom of speech," the two wrote in their proposal.
