Five reportedly Muslim men were arrested in London today in an anti-terror crackdown. They were allegedly plotting to kill Pope Benedict.
Let’s see how the media spin this one. ‘Puter’s betting on the “lone gunmen, outsider crazies, not representative of Muslims” spin.
As a thought experiment, imagine if New York City cops busted up a cell of Christians plotting to kill Imam Rauf, the Ground Zero Mosque proponent. ‘Puter’s fairly certain the media would not be so forgiving.
*Photo Caption, NYT style: Pakistani Muslims prepare a barbecue. These men find using Bibles as fuel imparts a heavenly smoky tang that can’t be achieved any other way. So STFU, Christiansist! BUSHITLERBURTONPALINBECKLIMBAUGHHHHHHHHHH!1!!one!
