Destroy the Churches. Only Islam Allowed.

Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Abdulaziz Bin Abdullah has once again called for the destruction of all Churches on the Arabian Peninsula…The Mufti stated that, according to Islamic law, all churches in the region must be demolished; i.e., Islam is the only legal religion here. The words of Muhammad that "there cannot be two religions on the Arabian peninsula" the head of the Sunni always interprets in favor of Islam.

Hmm. Have you seen this covered in the network news? Didn't see it on CNN or the Huffington Post? No joking reference from David Letterman or Jon Stewart? And no response whatsoever from the President or Secretary of State John Kerry?

Well, imagine the difference in response if the Pope had suggested that only Roman Catholic churches be allowed in Italy. Or if Billy Graham had stated that all synagogues, mosques and temples in North Carolina be demolished.

Double standard? Oh, it's much more than that. It's yet another example of the mind-numbing preferential treatment that the Western press gives to the most intolerant and violent of the world's…uh, religions.

It's a very sad and dangerous situation.
