This speaks volumes about CNN it's leanings...and it's glaring hypocrisy:
(From title story):


CNN announced this week that their policy is not to show images of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, that may potentially be offensive. The editorial decision followed the outlets decision not to show the now-famous Charlie Hebdo cartoons.




However, as of Tuesday morning CNN’s website still displayed pictures of crucified Jesus in a jar of human urine.

In response to Charlie Hebdo coming out with their post-terrorist attack cover showing a new cartoon of Muhammad, CNN came out with this statement yesterday:



"CNN will not show you the new cover, which depicts the Prophet Muhammad, because it is our policy not to show potentially offensive images of the prophet,"

www.weeklystandard.com...

....AND, as this earlier article illustrates, CNN is just fine with posting cartoon images which are offensive to Jewish folks.
Apparently, for CNN... only Islam is off-limits, where the broadcasting of offensive images is concerned.
Isn't that nice?


CNN's Despicable Double Standard




CNN refused to air the Danish Muhammad Cartoons in their news segments on the “Cartoon Riots” saying they did not want to offend viewers. On the weekend of February 4-5, 2006 CNN aired a video clip where they “pixilated” out the Danish Cartoons “so as not to offend.” Part of the footage was taken from the Aljazeera News Channel who also pixilated out the images.




But, as National Review reported, CNN did not have a problem airing anti-Semitic cartoons just 4 days later, on Thursday February 9, 2006!

The Christ in a jar of urine is supposedly some kind of work of art. here is another article about that says Christians shouldn't be offended by it.

What Does 'Piss Christ' Mean & Why Is It Important?


Ultimately, Piss Christ is a triumph of Love for Christians, because it reminds us so graphically (as Mel Gibson's The Passion Of the Christ did) the Love that Jesus has which caused Him to Suffer and continues to Suffer for our sins so we can be cleansed, so, in this sense, we can call it a graphic message of Divine Mercy that Jesus really love us, really wants us to be forgiven for our sins and lovingly wants us to overcome our sins. Likewise, it shows us--which we all need to know--what sin is, the no-nonsense, graphic reality of what we do to ourselves and our Lord every time we commit the smallest sin. We should not be upset with Christians getting upset with Piss Christ, Christianity is so attacked in our culture and no one defends it, that the desecrating image of Our Lord troubles their heart, however, Jesus is willing to suffer this--as He suffered on the Cross--if it means saving us from our sins.

I always thought CNN was supposed to be an entertainment show. It's not like CNN is promoting reality or anything. Once in a while they do incorporate some truth into their shows, but everyone screws up sometimes, nobody is perfect.

I have seen two camera porn shoots with better production than CNN.

In fairness though, nobody wants to cut your head off for showing PC.

So, they don't want to offend Muslims by showing the picture of Mohammed but they are willing to offend Christians by publishing their picture of Jesus. Now that is hypocrisy at it's finest. Fitting that this is being done by CNN.

CNN is not a news agency, it's there strictly for entertainment.

So, by the same token, a statue of the Prophet Muhammad submerged in a jar of pig sh*t, would be an equally triumphant graphic image of tribute for Islam...as it, too, would be a work of 'legitimate' devotional art...ALSO suitable for broadcast on CNN?

Sure they put a statuette of Jesus in piss. At least they didn't call him a libertarian communist.

Muhammad's significance in Islam is that he is the final Prophet...


Jesus is an equally important Prophet in Islam, but also our Messiah...
& this is not only a double standard but also lunacy and shows the lack of education at CNN in general...

"We don't want to offend Muslims, but due to our a Primary School intellect, we will be portraying their Messiah in a jar of piss"!!!

Fools.

Christians and Jews will die for what they believe?

Muslims, will murder the innocent, for what they believe, do
I have that right?

Muslims will also die for it. That's what suicide bombings are.

And I would have to think that some of the Muslims killed by ISIS in the ME also simply died because they refused to revert to the ISIS-approved version of Islam.

Then there are the people of Baga in Nigeria. Boko Haram militant Muslims killed them because they were going to vote, and even though they were Muslim, Boko Haram felt that voting is anti-Islam and thus they deserved to die although I'm not sure that is exactly dying for Islam.

Fools indeed. In Islam, depictions of Jesus are almost as haram as those of Muhammad.

Can't show their 1st most important prophet at all, but they can show their 2nd most important prophet in a jar of "art-piss".

I think CNN is aware of all this, though. They're just counting on the stupidity of their audience to let it fly.

Gee, where have I heard that before...

If they take innocent life before they suicide they are
murderers before they are martyrs.

CNN is dumb. They should just show both pictures and stop being scared little babies about a picture about Mohamed.

I won't dispute that. But they are willing to die for their faith. Calling them a martyr isn't something I ever do. I'm not sure what you would call it then. They die to further the cause of their faith through murder?

Quite simply they are cold blooded callous murderers. Not martyrs.

Dying for your faith at the hands of another i.e. The Christians who were fed to the lions in Roman days, or the millions of Jews who were gassed by the Nazis are true Martyrs.

Blowing yourself up to take out other innnocent lives is cowardice. Nothing brave or worthy of praise about it at all. I hope all of the S.O.B's who do this crap enjoy their eternity in hell.
