I can't help but notice...

Is it just me, or does anyone else notice that whenever liberals talks about Islam's hero and role model Mohammed, it's always something like Obama's recent statement: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”. Likewise, his then-spokesweasel Jay Carney always parroted that honorific when he said stuff like: “We are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the prophet Muhammad, and obviously we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this.”
He said that in 2012, when Charlie Hebdo, the same editorial magazine that was just attacked by muslim whackos, published other satirical jabs at Mohammed.

Note that it's never just "Mohammed", but always "the Prophet Mohammed."

And it's not just those two. Most of the mass media today almost always refers to Mohammed as "the Prophet" when they write or talk about him. Almost always.

Now I'm sure that they do this because they probably just want to make sure that we all know that they're talking about the original twelfth century pedophile and not any number of current-day cab drivers or 7-11 clerks whose parents really seemed to like that name, but why is it that Obama, his minions and the media talking heads never show the same sort of deference to Christianity's icon? I mean, when was the last time you heard Obama, one of his toadies, or any news anchor or mainstream columnist refer to Him as "Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ?"

Maybe it's just me, but I'm seeing a disparity there, if not a double standard. One is always declared to be the Prophet (not just "a prophet" but "THE Prophet") and the other one is rarely even mentioned. And if He is, it's usually just by using His first name in as casual a manner as possible.

I also haven't forgotten the countless times when the Christian faith and all who believe are mocked and lampooned, even at Christmastime, and nothing is said by any authority figure except perhaps a glib reference to the First Amendment. But burn a koran or draw a picture of Mohammed and Obama and everyone else is criticizing you for it and begging muslims not to react. And I'll be waiting for proud athiest Neil deGrasse Tyson to make Mohammed jokes during Ramadan this year, as I'm sure that he will...unless there's a double-standard, of course.

  4. You are 100% correct, there is a double standard when it comes to Christianity and The Cult of Death Islam and the Pedophile Mohammed. Christianity gets slammed while the Pedophile Mohammed and the cult of death gets praised.

  9. Maybe I'm being overly pedantic, but you don't say "Michael Jordan, an Irish politician, you say "THE irish politician", with nobody taking that to mean there is a shortage of politicians in Ireland. Christ is a title, so Jesus Christ is effectively shorthand for Jesus of Nazareth, The Messiah.

    Where I see a double standard is "Christians have bombed abortion clinics, so they are just as bad". Yeah, the specific Christians that bomb in the name of religion are just as bad...but that's far less common than Islamic terrorists by at least an order of magnitude.
