… “The New York Times is being accused of having a double standard when it comes to questioning religion, after it ran an ad calling on Catholics to leave their church, but nixed an ad making the same plea to Muslims.”
The reason, stated a Times official responding to accusations of media bias, “…fallout from running this ad now could put U.S. troops and/or civilians in the [Afghan] region in danger.” [source]
But Islam is so peaceful. What is this “danger” of which you speak?
Riiiiiiiight. Not even the Times believes that, or else they would have found the testicular fortitude to run the ad. At the core of their own explanation is an admission of fearing Islam. They fear retaliation, beheadings, and riots in the streets. Not a completely unfounded fear I might add.
We really need to stop kidding ourselves here. It’s not about being crassly un-PC and desiring not to cause offense. It’s not even about the liberal media’s hatred of Catholics and their favorite pastime, Catholic bashing. It’s quite plainly about fear. Fear of Islam and it’s adherents. And why fear? Because we have seen this religion practiced out in nations where it’s the religious majority and we understand it’s main objective – to dominate by force.
Unlike Christ who sacrificed himself to death on the cross for our sins, harmed no one, and only flipped a table in justified righteous indignation, Muhammad conquered and converted by the sword. And not much has changed since.
We really need to stop the cowardice now for the sake of our nation and Christianity. Nothing can be gained by continuing to deny and state the obvious. Period. The end.
