Indigo Decision

A news item today reported that the Canadian book chain Indigo has pulled Harpers magazine since the most recent issue of this magazine “contains reprints of 12 cartoons that sparked outrage in the Muslim world earlier this year” (“Indigo pulls Harper’s magazine”). Interesting, eh? The blockbuster The Da Vinci Code also contains outrageous material: blasphemous ideas about the blessed Lord Jesus. But there is not a thought about pulling that or the other trashy pulp that makes similarly ludicrous claims. The difference? How sincere Muslims and sincere Christians react to blasphemy. The first are ready to slay the infidel that mock the Prophet. The latter are set to pray for those that ridicule them.
