Overreaction to Pope's comments

PEOPLE are overreacting and taking the Pope's comments on the Charlie Hebdo attack out of context.

Pope Francis was rightly saying that we need freedom of expression, but he reminded people to be sensitive and responsible when using it.

Surely that is reasonable?

His point about mothers and punches was trying to point out that, of course, people are going to be upset if you ridicule things that are very dear to them.
