Secular Tragedy

Updated: December 18, 2015 11:15 am

WHAT on earth is happening? The other day secular Satiricus was shocked to see the courageous torch-bearer of secular journalism devoting almost a full page to—hold your breath—Islamic terrorism. There were as many as three full, foul anti-secular pieces. One was timidly titled “The Big Muslim Tragedy,” the second was crassly called “Fighting Jihadi Terrorism”, while the third tells us “what Paris tells us” is that “the world faces greater threat from adherents of Islam than those of any other religion”. This is truly terrible. To improve upon the first title, this is “the big anti-secular tragedy” of our media. On second thoughts, however, Satiricus realises that what seems is not what is.Our secular media does not—and never will—write about Islamic terrorism. It writes—and will keep writing—about something very different—Islamist terrorism.
