A thought experiment

Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of South Park, have written a raunchy Broadway musical called The Book of Mormon. I haven’t seen it, but history suggests that the show’s portrayal of the Church of Latter-Day Saints is less than respectful.

Now, imagine some lunatic taking offence to The Book of Mormon and trying to track down Matt and Trey to avenge this gross insult to his faith.  Unable to locate them, he walks into a shopping mall and goes on a shooting rampage, killing twenty people and injuring dozens more.

Question: do you believe Matt Stone and Trey Parker should be held responsible for these deaths?
