To the editor:
Apparently this week is Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau’s week to deride and mock Mitt Romney’s religion. Will he have the courage to mock Islam sometime soon? Surely he could find some good reasons, e.g., murdering innocents, oppressing women, banning all religions except radical Islam, etc.
Oh, that’s right. Mormons have not threatened to decapitate people who insult their religion like radical Islamists have. So, I imagine Trudeau will confine his insults to Mormons and others who don’t endanger him.
And I thought mocking a candidate’s religion was uncivil. It certainly was during Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign whenever the Rev. Mr. Wright of “God damn America” fame was mentioned. Oh well. Trudeau likes to change the rules, I guess.
