Mollie at GetReligion.org covers the most recent nasty coverage of the Catholic Church at the New York Times. Archbishop Dolan has taken them on for some very insulting photographs. I don't keep track of all these assaults, because we've been told to expect such. But she asks an interesting question in relation to how Islam is treated vs. Christians. And it's not irrelevant to the controversies going on today.
I would love to hear an explanation of why, as this August 2009 New York Times article states, The Times banned images of the Muhammad cartoons that helped spark one of the biggest news stories of 2006.
I wonder if it’s simply that The Times is scared of Muslims but not Christians? Or what?
