The fact that him burning a book (which is, as far as I'm concerned, free speech as long as you own the book) has sparked violent riots that were completely out of proportion means that HE HAD A POINT. He was trying to expose a problem in society, which is what he did, and instead of people recognizing that problem, they bought the media narrative and blamed him for it. You don't have to like his point, but you have to agree that he was right about it.
Maybe this comic should have been about how it can be that in a mostly atheistic society the inquisition is still alive and well, and how people find rioting and burning perfectly acceptable.
