I saw this silly comparison somewhere.
Radical Islamists are destroying irreplaceable artifacts that are thousands of years old. This is deplorable and disgraceful.
Those secular “radicals” are asking that we not regard a movie promo from 1956 — that’s right, most of these monuments were sent out to advertise a movie by Cecil B. DeMille — as appropriate civic displays, and are asking that they be removed from courthouses and moved to private places, like churches.
Where the congregation can more appropriately continue their worship of Cecil, capitalism, and the era they regard as the high water mark of American culture.
