Here's an archbishop who gets it....

Finally, someone speaks up....
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, has accused the BBC of bias against Christianity and says the broadcaster fears a terrorist backlash if it is critical of Islam.

The archbishop, the second most senior figure in the Church of England's hierarchy, said Christians took "more knocks" than other faiths at the hands of the BBC.

"They can do to us what they dare not do to the Muslims," he said. "We are fair game because they can get away with it. We don't go down there and say, 'We are going to bomb your place.' That is not in our nature."

The BBC is full of self righteous hypocritical cowards - it's about time somebody pointed that out.

The Archbishop is quite right. Christians and males are open-season, anything goes. This is 'fairness' according to the BBC and the CBC.

Stateing the obvious, I think - noone wants to insult a religion if doing so will result in at least angry crowds of protesters as happened in the Cartoon Fiasco, and at worst having some staff killed by a self-appointed defender of the faith.

Too much whining for me. Why isn't it legitimate to criticize people who worship an unproven god? The problem is the failure to criticize Islam which shares the stupidity.
