Rep. Peter King is being condemned by many for holding hearings on Muslim terrorist activities. Some have said that Catholics would not put up with congressional hearings on the Catholic Church that address the sexual abuse scandal, so what’s the difference? Catholic writer David Gibson is the latest to entertain such nonsense.
King is concerned only about Muslim terrorists because they are the only demographic group that routinely murders innocent people all around the world, including the United States, in the name of their religion. That’s why. They are not analogous to predator members of the clergy, or to molesting school teachers and celebrities, or to Irish or Basque men who take up arms, or to abortionists, or to city gangs. They are in a class all by themselves. That’s why they are the only ones to cause Eric Holder, the U.S. Attorney General, to lose sleep. Get it?
