Saturday Night Live recently aired a piece that featured performers playing the roles of Bronco quarterback Tim Tebow, and Jesus Christ. It was standard SNL fare that was mocking, edgy, and over-the-top. Criticism has poured in, and SNL will probably disregard all of it as they continue down their path of relatively low ratings, kept only in place by their saturday night time slot.
In all fairness, SNL should probably now air a skit that includes a Muslim and Muhammad in some type of edgy repartee as well. In this multicultural age, no religion should be given a pass. They should be equally humiliated, abused and slapped. It won't happen. Why? Because Muslims kill people that insult their religion; Christians don't.
We are told frequently that all religions and ideologies are equal, and that Islam is the religion of peace. It's not. No sooner does the U.S. pull out of Iraq, then they set about killing each other. This year Pakistan has had nearly 700 Islamic "honor killings" of mainly women that were considered as either rebellious or "too westernized" in their viewpoints. The U.S. State Department has said nothing condemning these atrocities. Once again, Islam gets a pass because they will intimidate, attack and kill anyone that dares to condemn them.
The next time someone tries to tell you that Islam is inoffensive and equal to other religions, point to Tebow, Jesus and SNL. Ask them what would happen if that were to be done live in New York against Islam on a saturday night. By sunday morning there would be hell to pay. Because Islam is not a religion of peace. It never has been, it never will be, and sooner or later the United States is going to have to deal with it in her cities and towns.
