Christophobia Reported

In a shocking display factual reporting, a major media outlet has decided to publish a series of stories about the bashing of Christians.

Information obtained by QNA (Quipper News Alliance) indicates that this is neither a ruse, nor an attempt to garner readership from the extreme right. Matter of factly, our confidential contact indicated that the organization fretted over whether to release the stories, right before the secular holiday called Christmas:

"We know that, if we release these news events now, we may offend secular humanists who celebrate the secular holiday. We also fear that Christians will again try to wrestle away control of the holiday. This would not be a good sign for big business, or for those who are offended by Christianity.

However, in the light of the season, we feel it is appropriate to present a balanced reporting effort. After all, we present Ramadan, Hanukkah, and Kwaanza in a good light, it is only appropriate we do the same for those few Christians that still celebrate the original intent behind the Christmas event."

QNA has obtained reports that the following news stories will be highlighted in upcoming newspaper and radio spots:

- Man points out that Kings David and Solomon had more than one wife

- Muslim man points out that Patriarch Jacob had twelve sons from two wives and two concubines

- Patriarch Abraham ran his concubine and love child out of his house

- CAIR showed pictures of Jesus Christ on their website

- Liberals are upset that Jesus says he, and not Kofi Annon, will overcome the world.

These are just a few of the stories that are being followed. Updates will be posted when they occur....

You didn't

really think that

cases of Christophobia

(whether really Christophobia or not)

would be reported, did you?

Doh!

Those few Christians? Ex-squeeze-me?!?!?

I don't know where to even begin with my response to that one... (...sigh...)

Didn't mean to frustrate you. This is satire on the media and political folks that understand neither Christianity nor the definition of terms such as "phobia".

"Islamophobia" is reported left and right. Mostly, it is declared when someone points out a Koran-based truth that puts Islam in a bad light.

My post was to serve two points:
1. It's not phobia if you are pointing out the truth.
2. People blast Christianity all the time, but it's not reported in the same way that "blasting" other religions is.

My apologies.

LOL!

Your satire was so good I thought it was the real thing! Bravo!

Thanks for clearing that up for me. Sometimes I just get confused.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
