Media hyped hysteria


Hilary at LifeSite news points out that the media created the whole Muslim hysteria. I no longer buy the New York Times (I stopped years ago) and after the Jayson Blair plagiarism scandal I look at everything it publishes with a scrutinizing eye. As for the BBC, they so obviously hate Jews and Christians so much that I ignore them as well. And speaking of somewhat strange reactions to the Pope's Regensburg speech Jimmy Akin wimps out and calls it a gaffe. I've been fairly uncomfortable with some of the things I've been reading on Akin's blog lately and this pretty much cuts the cake for me. I won't bother to read him anymore.

I am likewise deeply disappointed in the non-Muslim reactions to the Pope's comments, and especially the "Catholic" reactions of Akin, Shea, and First Things.

Having read the lecture, I didn't find anything incorrect in it - offensive, yes, but if the shoe fits . . . what our Holy Father said needed to be said. I am afraid he will become a martyr (literal, not figurative) over this.

Thank you, Dymphna, for defending him.

I agree.

I support the Holy Father.
