Saudi Ulema & The Nation---Two Inquisitions in the 21st Century

Saudi fatwas calling for death to journalists suggesting that other religions besides Islam be given some measure of respect are hilariously matched by the US's own fatwa dispenser, Nation magazine, whose fulminations against ABC NEWS, and specifically George Stephanopoulos & Charlie Gibson for the crime of journalism.

While about 20 Saudi clerics signed up to support the call for death to the journalists, The Nation more than doubled the number of pseudo-journalists calling for the journalistic death of Gibson & Stephanopoulos.

Who says religious fanaticism can't be matched by Liberal Fascism [h/t: Jonah Goldberg]?
