Everybody Draw Muhammad Day

In response to Comedy Central caving into terrorist threats against the creators of South Park for depicting Muhammad by pulling an episode, Dan Savage has proposed Everybody Draw Muhammad Day, on May 20th. Through the efforts of solidarity, the sheer number of Muhammad pictures could create an environment where no one person or group of persons could be singled out. Though I am an atheist and have no holy text, this text is pretty darn cool and worth fighting for:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
