Watching Matt Lauer interview Jim (Sheldon Cooper) Parsons about his role on Broadway playing God. Matt giggles that some might not like him playing God, and Parsons replies “What can I say… haters gonna hate”. They both chuckle and continue chatting.
Gee. No mention he might “incite violence” by Shiite Baptists? So if some Catholic objects, THEY are the “haters”, not the one that offended them? Watched the news lately?
Similarly, in a glowing review of Broadway hit “Book of Mormon”, the NYT says it’s “… blasphemous, scurrilous and more foul-mouthed than David Mamet on a blue streak. But trust me when I tell you that its heart is as pure as that of a Rodgers and Hammerstein show.”
Wait a sec. It’s “blasphemous“? Oh my. Aren’t you worried it’ll CAUSE violence?
The same New York Times is all over Pam Geller for her blatant and intentional “disrespect” of Islam… and the AP News crew is openly amazed she “has no regrets”.
Yeah, she’s just a troublemaker isn’t she? How DARE she think she can mock a religion? Right?
I’m NOT suggesting the self-crowned “elite” must temper their antics to avoid offending religions. The 1st amendment says they CAN. I don’t have to like it. I can change the channel, read a different paper, even boycott their sponsors… but I cannot MAKE them “respect” my religion, and I for sure cannot threaten violence.
Just trying to figure out how they can’t see the blatant hypocrisy of granting Islam a preferred status.
If the media didn’t have double-standards… they’d have none at all.
