The mainstream media (MSM) has just provided another example of how it ostracizes those who fail to tout its party-line. Context: the Washington Post's On Faith blog posted an article dealing with Muslim-Christian relations, in light of recent attacks on Christians in the Muslim world. Regular contributors were invited to respond. The response of one of these, Willis E. Eliot, a retired dean of exploratory programs, New York Seminary, was rejected. Up till then, for over three years, Eliot had been publishing almost weekly on that blog; this is his first contribution to be rejected in all that time.
Jesus said, "Love your enemies." Islam, to the contrary, is essentially hostile to "the infidels"… Jesus was anti-violent, Muhammad was violent… Muslims become violent, or threaten violence, when they feel offended: when we Christians feel offended, almost never do we become violent, and almost always we suffer the disrespect in silence."
Simple: the MSM is quite indifferent to the suffering of the "weak"; that's just a cover, when suitable. Rather, its overriding impulse is to undermine Western civilization, in accordance to the doctrine of cultural relativism. And what better way to do that than devalue its Judeo-Christian heritage—hence, the ingrained bias against anything Judeo (Israel) or Christian (persecution).
