	No, moron, but you are.  Let me try and express this in as few
 polysyllabic words as I can.

	Stupidly enough, you have committed the idiotic mistake of
 assuming that everyone holds to your premises, that firstly,
 tolerating intolerance is somehow a good thing -- why should it be is
 beyond me.

	Secondly, that giving in to the intolerant bigots is not going
 to hurt Debian -- it is going to hurt its reputation in enlightened
 circles, people who are against narrow minded bigotry, and wo
 recognize art --- even if Bruno Bellamy is not on their own preferred
 artists of the century list.

	Not permitting this package would be an indication that Debian
 has been overrun by art hating, narrow minded, right wing bigoted
 censors who are pursuing their agenda of imposing narrow minded so
 called morality on the rest of society.

	An, in case you do not get it, that is a bad thing.
