Slate.com: ‘Muslims, Christians, Hindus, and Jews’ Need Thicker Skin
September 14, 2012 - 3:26 pm
For me, this is today’s low point in politically correct, Columbia J-School, Pulitzer Prize-style cultural Marxist journalism:
Dear Muslims, Christians, Hindus, and Jews,
You’re living in the age of the Internet. Your religion will be mocked, and the mockery will find its way to you. Get over it.
If you don’t, what’s happening this week will happen again and again. A couple of idiots with a video camera and an Internet connection will trigger riots across the globe. They’ll bait you into killing one another.
The four bodies aren’t even in the ground yet — killed by Muslims — and Saletan wants everyone, all those equally shameful worshippers of some primitive sun G-d, to reflect on their sins, which they simply have not committed, and Saletan offers not a word of anything as evidence that they have. Nothing. That’s the last mention of the other three religions in his column.
If I weren’t a mildly religious man, I’d tell Saletan where to go.
