Should Christians Kill Mark Thompson?

Mark Thompson, the head of the BBC, admitted in a public interview that his fear of Muslim retaliation causes him to treat Muslim stories with far more sensitivity than Christian stories.

In his most telling comment, Thompson said: "Without question, 'I complain in the strongest possible terms,' is different from, 'I complain in the strongest possible terms and I am loading my AK47 as I write.' This definitely raises the stakes."

He says he knows his fear creates censorship.

We applaud Thompson for his honesty. But his censorship creates more problems than it solves. A recent Spectator article goes into detail about some of the problems this kind of censorship can cause. Read the article here (and then share it with your friends, especially those friends who are fans of the BBC).

As civilized human beings we should not even threat good Mr. Thompson. What we should do is hit Mr. Thompson where a businessman hurts the most: in his pocket.

Since we have an open admission of religious discrimination, couldn't some consortium of Christian churches file some kind of class action suit for discrimination?

I'm just asking ...
