Liberals Forced To Remove Offensive Symbol in Katy Perry Video for Muslims; But No Such Care Is Shown Toward Christians
LOS ANGELES – An Islamic symbol has been removed from the online version of the Katy Perry music video for 'Dark Horse' after an online petition claimed it was offensive to the Muslim religion.
“At 01.15 into the video a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant (also burned) forming the word ‘Allah’ which is the Arabic word for God,” wrote Shazad Iqbal in a Change.org petition calling for the video to be removed from YouTube. “Such goes to show, that blasphemy is clearly conveyed in the video, since Katy Perry (who appears to be representing an opposition of God) engulfs the believer and the word God in flames.”
Some say the move is off base, and that the controversy over Perry’s video spotlights a double-standard, as artists like Lady Gaga and Madonna repeatedly use Christian symbols in music videos in ways that offend some Christians.
How does this square with liberals demanding that Christians serve sodomites or their "unions" when it goes against their religion? Where's the back bend to not offend us? Instead the government is forcing Christians to offend their religion and their God. Yet they won't do it with the Muslims?
