The Movie that Got the Ambassador Killed
I don’t mind criticizing Islam. As a matter of fact, I don’t mind criticism of Christianity. Frequently this kind of criticism is false and full of half truths. But when people lie and tell half-truths about Christianity, I know that fair-minded people will eventually find out the truth. The rabble of course will listen to any kind of evil story it wants to believe.
I guess we could say the man who made it had a right to do it. I watched all of two minutes and was disgusted; it was lewd and it was along the lines of a minstrel show. That’s not the kind of freedom of speech I want to be fighting for.
Still, when riots are touched off by a movie as obviously idiotic as that one, it at least partly looks like Muslims are looking for an excuse.
Then again, who knows. Maybe if someone had made a movie about Jesus like that 200 years ago, our grandparents would have rioted. But they just did make a movie about Jesus like that when I was a little kid, “The Last Temptation of Christ.” And I think some nuns stood on a picket line, but I’m pretty sure no one was killed.
