Alpha Brewing Scraps "Submission Ale" -- But Not Necessarily a Beer Mocking Islam

As a budding brewer of craft beers, I found this article rather funny.

(if also rather depressing).

Another case of Islam being treated with kid gloves.  Why not "mock" Islam, just as we mock all other religions and atheists.
Alpha announced the series making fun of religion back in January, and put all 12 labels online at that point, Langeneckert says. There was no controversy. Nor was there any in previous months when everyone from atheists to "door knockers" to Scientologists came in for a ribbing.
These included a "pope mob-ale" and "xenu xipa".
