HARD PROOF: NZ Herald’s Muslim pandering editorial stance is only a recent thing



Going on today’s NZ Herald Editorial (Editorial: Provocations Charlie Hebdo’s way, not for all) I think you  must have hit the NZ Herald editorial team’s raw nerve when you posted Thursday’s NZ Hypocrite post.  Today’s Editorial  justifying NZ Herald’s stance on Charlie Hebdo  proves how deeply hypocritical the NZ Herald really is and how ignorant they are about things Christian.

It is this hypocritical bit that really stood out. “A creator of the provocative St Matthew in the City billboards in Auckland, which we showed in the past because they offended some from other Christian churches, asked whether we showed more sensitivity to the feelings of Muslims than Christians. The answer is no. The billboards were of Christians challenging Christians over elements of belief. The evidence is that they were not designed to denigrate or mock others and that Christians, in the majority here, were less threatened by visual or verbal ridicule.”

The NZ Herald has consistently shown total sensitivity towards Muslims and just about zero to Christians. Any chance to have a dig at or mock Christianity is taken – Christians are fair game. The thing is Mr Currie – the St Matthews in the City billboards were not about Christians challenging Christians at all. I don’t know what motivated the Reverend at St Matthews in the City to promote the billboards – it certainly wasn’t Christian. I do know that “born again” Bible believing Christians, who attend churches where the Bible is considered to be the infallible word of God, would never allow such billboards to grace the grounds of their churches.

The St Matthews in the City billboards are deliberately designed to mock the same God that the forefathers of St Matthews in the City believed in.

Cheers Lesley.

It walks like a duck, talks like a duck and quacks like a duck, and we all know it’s a duck, no matter how much the NZ Herald and their MSM brethren try to tell us it’s a teapot.   Explaining is losing, and the NZ Herald are up to their armpits in pig intestines there.  People can see it too.

Of course, it’s the Whaleoil Way to simply look up what the NZ Herald has done.  Unfortunately, archives online don’t go back to 1991 when Tania Kovats’ Virgin in a Condom statue will almost certainly have featured as an image.  (Don’t make me look it up Shayne, why not front foot it yourself?)

What I did find online is this:  Muhammad as a suicide bomber as an image, published by the NZ Herald.   Oh do so love the smell of Hypocrisy in the morning any time of day.


Now, the NZ Herald will want to dance on the head of a pin here, saying it wasn’t a very large photo, and you can’t quite make it out.   But, you know, we’re done here.

“Religion is garbage.  Tick Tock Muhammad”.

Ball is in your court Shayne.  But it’s probably better just to cower behind your desk now and hope it all goes away.  Because that certainly wasn’t Muslims challenging Muslims within Islam, and it is an image of Muhammed, which in itself is a big no-no according to your editorial stance.

My point still stands:  the NZ Herald and the MSM’s current editorial stance on reporting on Islam is born from fear.  And that comes from terrorists intimidating journalists and news organisations into silence.

Cowards.  Take your “lone wolf gunmen that have nothing to do with Islam” and take a hike.
