Bill Donohue comments on the decision by Renald Luzier, the Charlie Hebdo cartoonist known as Luz, to leave the magazine:

Luz is sure to be hailed for his courageous career poking fun at religious figures. This is twice wrong: he is a coward and a pornographer, just like his co-workers.

After the Paris murders last January, Luz was praised for his bravery: he had the guts to put Muhammad on the cover of the next edition. The kudos were undeserved. In fact, his portrayal of the Prophet was benign: it showed him weeping, saying, “All Is Forgiven.” No wonder The Independent, a London newspaper, characterized the image as a “relatively cuddly and would-be consensual character.”
