You have a very active imagination. Acquire some logic and facts to go with that, and perhaps we can have an adult conversation

At a time when Al Jezzerra is being compared to Al Qaeda, I see nothing funny about joining the chorus of "Hate."

I HAVE made jokes at the expense of Al Qaeda and the Taliban. But for a joke to be "funny," it has to have a grain of truth behind it. Where is this grain of truth is saying they will have a TV program called:

"How I stoned your Mother?"

Women are frequently stoned in the Arab world often for alleged infidelity. That is an irrefutable fact. Watch "the stoning of soroya m." to get an idea of what goes on there. Amnesty internal is a good place to learn more about it. Al Jazzerra is an Arab media network. So yes there is a "grain (or a rock) of truth"

And Repblicans call the result of rape a gift from God. What's your point? Honor killings are common throughout Christian Latin America, does that mean that civilized Chrisitans back them?

What does stoning have to do with a media company like Al Jezeera?

Nothing at all. It's just a ghastly sterotype. It NOT Funny, anymore than saying Republicans advocate rape is funny.

Would it be a laughing matter if I made a joke about the Republican Platform, where I titled on of their planks, "How to use the Bible to teach a woman to enjoy being raped?"

There is no zero truth in the above statement.

And oddly enough, although I would never make such a joke, there's MORE truth in that, then in the above.

The is zero truth in your statement about "using the bible to teach woman to enjoy being raped".

"She should look on this child as a gift from God."

This is not a question of being PC. This is a question of trying to destroy a media outlet by a chorus of slander.

It is absolutely a question about being PC as I and this post have zero power destroy a media outlet.

All of us collectively speak to other people. The totality of that effort effects public consiousness. No one can escape their responsibility, no matter how small that responsibility is.
