"That would be like if Christians went places and built churches"

July 13, 2010

I always enjoy watching Jon Stewart go after Fox News. Sure, it’s like
shooting fish in a barrel, but when the shooter’s hilarious and the
fish have been hard at work misinforming America and playing to its
worst instincts, it’s a satisfying sight.

This clip on Fox’s
coverage of Islam is particularly good. Sean Hannity accuses the Obama
administration of “turn[ing NASA] upside its head” by using it for
Muslim-world outreach, so Stewart shows a 1985 clip of President Reagan
articulating similar goals for NASA and U.S.-Soviet relations. Later he
looks at Fox’s more-than-a-little-biased coverage of tensions that
exist within some U.S. communities whose Muslim residents have the
audacity to exercise their constitutional right to worship as they
please. Priceless stuff:

ha ha ha, those Christians are idiots!

Isn't it great we can mock and ridicule those followers of Christ without worry of violent retaliation?

Those Christians are the moral equivilent of the imaginary Islamic extremists bogeymen they talk about.

Its great that progressive Christians have so much in common with Islam like womens rights, homosexual equality, religious tolerance and ... well maybe its just the feelings about America they have in common.

@Anon - He isn't making fun of Christians, he's making fun of conservatives who use religion as a wedge issue.
