This last week saw the "Muslim" issue re-inflmamed with NPR firing long time news person Juan Williams. My personal opinion is that was a serious misstep by NPR to fire him over this comment. Depending on how deep one is willing to go to find conspiratorial explanations as to why this firing came when it did, I feel that at best, NPR handled this issue poorly.
But what I want to know, is in the midst of people getting fired for comments about Muslims, and with such backlash for people making statements about Muslims being terrorists and the like, why is it that people are fired for what they say about Muslims, but news anchor after news anchor have insulted, belittled, and directly attacked the Mormon faith with no repercussions whatsoever. Why is it not okay to talk about Muslims, but it is okay to thrash Mormons? If the issue is about respecting religion, why not respect all religions? Who was the last news reporter to be fired because of even an isolated attack on mormons?
