Kidding. Both the CBC and the Globe’s Doug Saunders have devoted articles to “Freedom Of Thought 2012: A Global Report on Discrimination Against Humanists, Atheists and the Nonreligious,” a report on the world wide tidal wave of discrimination faced by the non-religious.
You know, like in Canada, where Christian faith groups or individuals, are routinely targeted by the Human Rights Kommissars and their contemptuous enablers in the MSM like the CBC and Globe.
Both the CBC and Saunders manage to mention Islam, though barely and in typical morally equivalent fashion, making no distinction between the fate suffered by the non-religious in Islamic countries versus the horrid persecution they face in countries like Canada. “This trend of prosecuting blasphemies on social media sites, they note, is “most marked” – but not exclusive to – Muslim majority countries.” says the Ceeb.
The CBC cries out at the mass scale of the suffering…“Over a dozen people in ten countries have been arrested for acts of “blasphemy” on social media networks this year, according to the International Humanist and Ethical Union.”
Over a dozen people! The Horror! Why it’s far worse than those miserable Christians!
And get a load of this by Saunders, who never met a Coptic Christian he couldn’t blame;
“This is acutely the case in the post-revolution Arab states, where dictators such as Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak and Syria’s Bashar al-Assad had appropriated the word “secular” to describe their own regimes, leading to an environment where post-revolution governments, Islamist or otherwise, prosecute the non-religious as both apostates and traitors.” That’s it, has Doug ever reported on the fate of the Mid East’s Christians?
Again, I recoil at the extent of the sacrifice and horror suffered by Doug and the CBC in bringing us this devastating news! I wonder when the twits responsible for these hysterics will get around to chronicling the plight of religious minorities in Muslim countries?
