Christian bashing, ever old, ever new

From Brit Hume’s blog on Fox News:

Offended Christians have sent nearly 2,000 letters to The University of Virginia’s student newspaper, The Cavalier Daily, calling on the paper to apologize for a series of cartoons mocking their religion, including one portraying the Virgin Mary with an “immaculately transmitted” rash.

Editor-in-chief Michael Slaven says the paper will not apologize simply because someone is offended, saying newspaper policy allows cartoons to ridicule a group for it’s own “opinions or actions.”

But Slaven did issue an apology for a religious cartoon in February, after a widespread student protest. That cartoon poked fun at the Muslim prophet Mohammad.

Surprised? Neither am I. A sure sign of a sick and depraved society is when it hates itself. The title “Slouching Towards Gomorrah” comes to mind.
