Newsweek ... uh, yeah, so what.

I haven't blogged in a while, but now I'm inspired again.

So, Newsweek screwed up. But historically, they always screw up. Its just that this time, there were some pretty nasty indirect consequences.

Actually I agree with Michael Smirconish (sp?), local Philly radio host, when he says that its not the fault of Newsweek that the riots happened. Those monsters would find ANY reason to kill people. They're brutal murderers. Who cares if THIS TIME it was an inaccurate news piece by Newsweek? What if it was accurate? They're still a bunch of brutal murderers.

I have to endure constant blasphemy of MY God at the hands of the same media. Just watch any prime-time TV show and see how many times His name is taken in vain in 30 minutes.

Then I heard Fred Barnes (or was it Mort Kondracke?) explain that in Islam the Quran is the embodiment of Allah, and that Christianity doesn't have any equivalent. Well that's just wrong. Jesus was the "Word of God." That's not an unintentional transliteration or anything. That's exactly what it says. That's the "logos" in Greek. So, if it was Fred Barnes (who I generally REALLY like) he needs to go back to the drawing board on that one. If it was Mort Kondracke, then he sometimes pushes my buttons anyway, so no big deal.
