Thankful at least for his honesty...

The head of the BBC, Mark Thompson, has admitted that the broadcaster would never mock Mohammed like it mocks Jesus.

He justified the astonishing admission of religious bias by suggesting that mocking Mohammed might have the “emotional force” of “grotesque child pornography”.

But Jesus is fair game because, he said, Christianity has broad shoulders and fewer ties to ethnicity.

Read it all here....

We knew it all along.... we just wanted someone to admit it publicly.  This is the media bias that lies hidden under the surface of the illusion of objectivity...  The biggest problem is not the bias -- we can expect that and Jesus told us the world that was not friendly to Him would not be friendly to His followers -- the biggest problem was the lie of fairness....  Now that one has made the bold admission, I can only hope that others from the media will follow.  Honesty cleanses the discussion so that we can speak to the truth and not argue about lies.

Or you can here it on interview.... especially about 14:30 into the interview.

Sad the media (and rest of the world) don't see the true difference between Islam and Christianity. We don't have jihaad in the Church. We have a Savior who did the Law for us, and they, like all other religions must face the command of "do" rather than the announcement of "done."

What is more likely is the media and world just see Christianity redefined and refined into being impotent.
