FREEDOM WITH RESPONSIBILITY – Are we free to insult other religions?

FREEDOM MUST BE EXERCISED WITH RESPONSIBILITY

I just don’t understand respectable academics and journalists, in the name of freedom (of expression, press, and/or speech,) insisting on reproducing the images of Mohammed that enrage many Muslims. I would have thought that freedom is the right of every human person, but must be exercised with responsibility. Freedom without responsibility is often illegal and immoral.

Why should there be ‘Anti-hate laws’ in a free society? Why should there be the law prohibiting denial of "Holocaust"? Why should anyone, in the name of freedom of speech or press, reject a notion of pornographic representation of Christian images like Jesus or Mary? Some may argue that they are not insulted by those images. But I would have thought that what is offensive is defined by those who are offended not by those who offend.
