MSM and social media has been exploding with outrage over the killing of "Cecil" an African lion.
I'm wondering how many people cared to know the names of any of the 21 Coptic Christians beheaded by ISIS? There have been a number of other cases of Christians beheaded .. here was a case of 30 more, hardly covered. So that is over 50 ... the total must easily break 100, but those are Christians. Who's counting?!
I'm betting that if Christians beheaded some number of Muslims, the outrage would be even larger than that for Cecil -- I'm basing this on outrage over Abu Girab, Gitmo, "extreme rendition", etc and nobody was even beheaded there.
So what gives? I can't say I have a full explanation, but here are my guesses:
- ISIS shoots back ... the masses assume that Cecil's killer, the Bush Administration, or "Christians" aren't likely to.
- People generally don't like Christians very much ... they like lions, and Muslims are vaguely a "minority" ... modern education teaches the masses to like "minorities"
- Nobody in the MSM or popular actors and such told people to be outraged about Christians being beheaded -- they tell us to be outraged over Cecil being killed, and we do what the popular media voices in our ears tell to do.
Sounds about right. Why don't Dentists go out hunting Christians!
