Update on the ‘Zombie Mohammed’ case

Jonathan Turley has posted an update based on a statement reportedly made by the judge that challenges some of the facts reported in the original story about the assault on an atheist dressed as a zombie Mohammed. In return, the atheist has added to his version.

As is often the case, the story is more complicated. For starters, it turns out that the judge claims he is a long-time Lutheran and not a Muslim.

While the judge’s view on what the First Amendment means remains problematic, this illustrates that getting the facts of a story correct is not always that easy and usually takes time.
