…even Bill Maher can’t help noticing them. A guest tries to serve up Manning’s Corollary (briefly defined as “If you’ve seen one Abrahamic religion you’ve seen ’em all”) to argue that Christianity is just as violent as Islam. Maher responds:
You know what — that’s liberal bullshit right there … they’re not as dangerous. I mean there’s only one faith, for example, that kills you or wants to kill you if you draw a bad cartoon of the prophet. There’s only one faith that kills you or wants to kill you if you renounce the faith. An ex-Muslim is a very dangerous thing. Talk to Salman Rushdie after the show about Christian versus Islam.
As many people have pointed out — ‘The Book of Mormon,’ did you see the show? … OK, can you imagine if they did ‘The Book of Islam?’ Could they do that? There’s only one religion that threatens violence and carries it out for things like that. Could they do “The Book of Islam” on Broadway?
The cowards in the MSM know this, of course. That’s why they have no problem running images of “Piss Christ” in the NY Times and hectoring Christians to be more open-minded while refusing to run the Danish cartoons and, again, hectoring Christians to be more “sensitive”. The sheer cowardice of the MSM in the face of radical Islam is one of the most embarrassing spectacles of our allegedly free press. I think it’s because they know, down deep, how profoundly cowardly they are that they take it out, as bullies so often do, on safe targets like prolifers: so they can feel big and powerful and cover up the rankling awareness of their cowardice.
