Do you remember back in 1987 when that offensive picture of the crucifix was put on display? It depicted a small plastic crucifix submerged in a glass of the “artist” Andres Serrano's urine. It was all part of an exhibit sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, a government agency that offers support and funding for artistic projects, without controlling content.
Do you also remember the attacks and killings by Christians that followed? Do you remember the gun shots ringing out? Do you remember the police firing on the Christian attackers?
WOW! It was almost like Sunday night’s shooting in Garland, Texas. The cartoon drawings of Muhammad at a “Draw Muhammad” contest were offensive to Muslims.
And do you remember all of the other offenses committed against Christians and the violent response from Christians?
Following the Christian lead, shooters attacked the “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland. One of the suspected shooters was in contact with an Islamic State recruiter who seemingly urged him to take action against organizers of the controversial event.
Two men in body armor, toting assault rifles and showing every willingness to open fire now and count their victims later staged the attack. A security officer -- a traffic officer by day -- with a pistol shot and killed both attackers. He prevented what could have been another tragedy.
OH WAIT! I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING! NOBODY IN THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY ATTACKED AND/OR KILLED ANYONE IN RESPONSE TO THE OFFENSIVE PICTURE OF THE CRUCIFIX IN URINE!Could there be a difference in how Christians respond to offenses as compared to the way Muslims respond?
