The liberal media thinks nothing of insulting people of faith. They do it all the time and some examples are more extreme than others.
This weekend, as Christians across the nation are celebrating Easter and Jews are celebrating passover, the New York Times has run an opinion piece about getting rid of God.
How are people supposed to take this as anything but an insult?
Breitbart News reports:
New York Times Op-ed on Holy Weekend: Let’s Get Rid of God
The New York Times published an op-ed Friday that proposes eliminating belief in God — as one of the holiest weekends of the year begins.
Titled “In This Time of War, I Propose We Give Up God,” the article claims that God is responsible for “war and violence” and for “oppression and suffering,” and suggests that people stop teaching children about Him.
Here’s an excerpt from the Times piece:
God, it seems, paints with a wide brush. He paints with a roller. In Egypt, said our rabbi, he even killed first-born cattle. He killed cows. If he were mortal, the God of Jews, Christians and Muslims would be dragged to The Hague. And yet we praise him. We emulate him. We implore our children to be like him.
Perhaps now, as missiles rain down and the dead are discovered in mass graves, is a good time to stop emulating this hateful God. Perhaps we can stop extolling his brutality. Perhaps now is a good time to teach our children to pass over God — to be as unlike him as possible…
Killing gods is an idea I can get behind.
What is WRONG with the people at the NY Times?

This is such a cheap shot.
And it looks like it was meant to be.
