Muslims Defending Churches

…and vice versa. (!)

Why aren’t we seeing this trumpeted in the MSM?  Inquiring minds want to know.

Clayton Cramer had to go the the Canada Free Press to find this story.  (I wonder why?)

Only in Egypt: Muslims defending churches, Christians protecting mosques!

I generally do not approve of simplistic thinking.  Of course, some things are black and white, e.g. good versus evil, but the question is in the nuance:  What IS Good and what IS Evil?

Ay, there’s the rub.

I personally believe that not all Muslims are evil, or hold to Islamofascist views, any more than all Christians believe in stoning adulterers, gays and witches.  Muslims are not all Osama and Christians are not all The Church Lady.  How’s THAT for simplistic?

But, you’d never seen that in our media.  In a weird twist, Islamofascists (the Fort Hood mass murderer, for example) is portrayed as workplace violence, and Christians are portrayed as violent, small-minded, bigoted, all hateful of those not members of their specific brand of religion.  Religion pretty much takes it on the chin, except Islam.  That’s off the table.

I think the one example I’ve seen on mainstream commercial television NOT doing this is Blue Bloods (not a news or opinion show), which shows an Irish Catholic family celebrating regular Sunday dinners after church.  No making fun of Catholics or other Christians, and even bringing in other religious cultures.  The family business happens to be policing. And Tom Selleck is always good.

I’m not saying we shouldn’t question or even occasionally lampoon.  But let’s be even-handed and factual in so doing.

And news should be just that – facts regarding that which is new.

  1. Yes, it would be nice if the media related the unvarnished facts … but it ain’t gonna happen.

    • If the MSM did that, why aren’t we seeing it trumpeted all over?
      I’ve seen past stories as well, during Egyptian problems, where Muslims are helping Christians and vice versa.
      And they never get major treatment or attention.

  3. Well, the media is afraid of islamofascists because they will track you down and cut your head off with a dull knife if you criticize islam.
    so, the msm doesn’t report on such things because the msm is over populated by limp wristed girly men who got in journalism to change the world and perhaps get some payback for being picked on their whole lives growing up, coincidentally, by goons who behaved like islamofascists.
