Posts Tagged ‘Double Standard’

I just saw Huffington Post had a recent piece written on their front page for their religion column titled “Former Mayor Of Hell Rewrites Bible To Make It Really, Really Gay (NSFW).”  It has the above picture as its main picture to get people to click on it from the religion column.

Basically the article was about a guy making a mockery of the Bible.  You know it is bad when it has to be labeled NSFW which means it is not safe for work.  It’s essentially giving blasphemy against the Bible a platform on a national leftist website and the feel of the article is it was written and shared to make readers laugh.  For a website that talks a lot about fake news, one wonders if this piece that is more fitting for the Onion gets front and center stage as a news coverage where a Youtube comedian is quoted from his childish tweets all to get readers to laugh while the Huff Post writer drops his own lines alluding to the Bible.

I just wonder if Huff Po religion does the same thing with the Quran or with Islam in general like how they post things on the Bible and Christianity…or if there’s a double standard with the editors’ decision of what they select.  Not that I’m encouraging people to desecrate the Quran but I wonder would the Leftists over at Huff Post put similar pieces in content, tone and attention with the Quran?

Two double standards I want to note.

I evangelize weekly on college campuses.  There’s been more than once where I had a conversation with a “Disingenuous Liberal” usually after a long conversation that makes the following assertion during different moments of the conversations:

It’s like they don’t notice the double standard.  Most of the time how the second premise (“Hitler is a Christian”) get brought up in the conversation is part of a moral objection against Christianity (“Christians have done a lot of evil in history!  Hitler was a Christian!”).  Of course that objection in of itself is not without its problems.  For instance I think those who make such a charge haven’t taken into consideration Hitler was a politician; we should study more carefully Hitler’s beliefs when he was a nobody and when he was in full power which often suggest’s Hitler’s more genuine beliefs when he was less susceptible to the need to appease people for their support.  A great book that explored Hitler’s worldview is the work Hitler’s Philosophers by Yvonne Sherratt.  Hitler is no Christian once one understand his worldview.  Ironically when some progressives hear Christians talk about radical Islam suddenly these terrorists aren’t true Muslims because Islam is peaceful and these “jihadists” are doing things that goes against the Quran.

Related to this is another double standard with “Disingenuous Liberals:”
