Ooooooh…. They seriously DON’T wanna do that.
But they did.
From Christian Today:
The leader of the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination denounced a cartoon in the Washington Post that mocks Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, Pentecostalism, and Christianity as “despicable”.
“The cartoon is despicable,” decried Assemblies of God’s chief executive officer, George O Wood, in a statement last Friday. “Millions of Christians today follow the example of first century Christians who prayed in other tongues.
“The Washington Post would not think of printing a cartoon that mocked members of the Muslim or Jewish faiths,” he charged. “It should be ashamed.”
According to Washingtonpost.com representative Deborah Howell, Washingtonpost.com received some 350 complaints from readers about the cartoon by Pat Oliphant, which they said lampooned their faith.
Congratulations liberal media, you just spat in the faces of around 30 million Pentecostals in America, as well as 50 million American Charismatics of whom many believe in the gift of tongues. As well as the 96 million other Pentecostals outside of the USA.
In fact, even the step of depicting God rudely cussing isn’t going to go down well with many of the non-tongues speaking Christian and Jewish believers either.
That’s a whole lot of consumers who won’t be buying the Washington Post or reading their advertisements, and a whole lot of voters who won’t be casting their ballots for Barack Obama anytime soon.
Way to go, smear-merchant liberal media!
I also include the cartoon among more than 150 pro-Sarah Palin cartoons at Sarah Palin Tribute Editorial Cartoons and as entry #72 in the Collection of Anti-Palin Bias in the Liberal Media.
