So will we have conflated or equated by CNN Islam, Judaism, and Christianity? How accurate will the reporting be? What authorities will CNN rely on? Do you bristle at the suggestions implied or presupposed by the title?
Three nights to find answers to these questions.
If you watched Larry King tonight, he interviewed Christianne Ammanpour about the shows. He also invited a panel of “religious” leaders (guess which denomination was missing from the panel?) that paroted the party line with commentaries on the unfortunate mixing of religion and politics. Ammanpour kept framing the discussion with “Christians are trying to change the laws of this country.” The rabbi, the Moslem, and the Christian were (big surprise) politically correct and careful not to offend with their statements about tolerance, inclusiveness, acceptance, blah, blah, blah.
I can tell you that the Christian segment focuses on Fundamentalists primarily, with special interviews of Falwell, Robertson, and some other young preacher who led a youth movement in San Fran last year. No mention of Catholics, which is par for the course for CNN.
I will watch it, with my valium right next to the remote. My palms were sweaty just watching the previews.
I do suggest taking down what questions you have and any mistakes or prejudices you find.
I have already emailed CNN. I have them in my address book.
