CNN: Spineless Bastards

So I am reading CNN today. No shock there. I tend to start my day reading the headlines there.

I clicked on the continuing saga of the Mohamed cartoons and the "Religion of Peace".

The article was about calls for British police to begin arresting Muslim demonstrators who have been advocating violence with such "Religion of Peace" standbys as:

Massacre those who insult Islam

Europe you will pay, your 9/11 will come

Yeah, that sounds like advocating violence to me. They should be locked up.

At the end of the article they had this little disclaimer:

To repeat my title, CNN: Spineless Bastards!

CNN has chosen to not show the cartoons out of respect for Islam.

Bull Shit! Respect for Islam my ass! Where was CNN when Christ was being dipped in urine? Where was CNN when the Virgin Mary was covered in elephant dung? Oh yeah, they reported on it, as they should have AND they showed a picture, as they should have.

So why not show the supposedly offensive cartoons of Mohamed? They reported on it, just like the dung covered Virgin Mary, but no pictures. They did not refrain from showing a dung covered Virgin Mary "out of respect for Catholics." Gee, I wonder why that is?

Double standard? What double standard?

For you poor CNN readers who can only imagine what vile images of Mohamed have sparked the riots and caused CNN not to publish them, here they are in all their glory.

So is CNN really that sensitive to Islam and not to Christianity? Or are they plain scared?

Also, just in case CNN changes things: here is the screen shot with their note about respect for Islam and here is the screen shot of the Dung Virgin Mary.
