So which is it? Is the liberal media Islamophobic? Or homophobic? If drawing cartoons of The Prophet is – as the New York Times insists – an “exercise in bigotry and hatred posing as a blow for freedom”? And – again from the Times – a “blatantly Islamophobic provocation”? All because drawing cartoons of the Prophet violates the Islamic faith? Then what, exactly, is gay marriage? Like drawing an image of The Prophet, homosexuality is a “blatantly Islamophobic provocation” all by itself – long before you even get to the idea of gay marriage.
