Equal Opportunity Offense

If you read the newspaper, watch the tv, and/or don’t live in a cave 10 miles deep, then you know that everyday, SOMEONE is getting offended by SOMETHING. And, it makes headlines.

Well, the writers of 2012 went out of their way to not offend someone, and, because of that, offended someone else.

If you’ve seen the movie, or the previews, then you know that several of Christendom’s greatest landmarks get destroyed. Christo Redemptor, (Christ the Redeemer in Brazil), the Sisteen Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basillica, just from the previews. Well, the problem is that the writers went out of their way to NOT destroy Muslim sites.

Muslims: Not Pissed Christians: Pissed

According to here, one of the writers was afraid of getting a fatwa (basically, a hit has been put out on you) declared on him.

Now, while he does have a point, Muslims have declared fatwas on people for works of enertainment, I think if  you’re not going to destroy one religion’s holy sites, don’t destroy another’s. Be equal opportunity. Leave the religious sites alone, and focus on some national landmarks. Take out the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Big Ben, Red Square, the Great Wall, the Leaning Tower (that’s not religious), the Angkor Wat, Chichen Izda, and the Pyramids. None of them are religious marks. Or, take out the Hagia Sophia, St. Peter’s Basillica, the Shwedagon Pagoda, and any other reglious monument you please. Equal opportunity destruction!
