CNN ran a story this morning about a vandalized mosque. Some guy spelled out the word “Pig” with bacon in front of the mosque. The news anchor went on a 30 second monologue about how reprehensible and catastrophic this act was. She went on to decry the act as further proof of our country’s persecution of the Muslim community. She concluded with the following insight, “Spelling out the word ‘pig’ in bacon is especially bad, as Muslims don’t eat pork.”
Thanks for the multicultural education, CNN lady. Listen. You’re doing more harm than good. Was this act stupid? Yes. Was it tasteless? Yes. Is it worthy of national news?!? Well, consider this: I guarantee I could drink a couple cases of Polygamy Porter on the front lawn of the Mormon Church up the road, and spell out the word “FORNICATION” with the empties. Mormons don’t like being associated with polygamy, reject alcohol consumption and premarital sex, but I promise we wouldn’t hear one peep about it the next morning, nor should we!
This is just silly.
