If a Christian said...

"In the province of Venice, Italy recently a Catholic priest recited a prayer to “count the Muslims one by one and kill them to the very last one.”  He asked God to “turn their food to poison and make the air they breathe blazing hot.” The sermon was posted on the internet last week."

Of course if you're a rational person you're already pretty sure this is bullshit, for a couple of reasons.

The most obvious is that you're pretty sure this kind of rhetoric hasn't been heard from Catholics in, oh, 300 years or so.  Even in the worst of "the troubles" in Belfast decades ago, when a large number Catholics were bombing civilians in an effort to force the British to cede Northern Ireland to the Irish Republic, I don't recall a single member of the Catholic clergy calling for violence. 

While individuals of any faith can get bloodthirsty, that's just not a part of "official" Catholicism--or any other branch of Christianity.

But the second telltale that the first 'graf above was bullshit is that you didn't see it all over the mainstream media.  Cuz you know sure as hell that if a Christian cleric had said something like that, it would have been headline news.

Well if that's true, why didn't any mainstream outlet publish the following story:
In a Friday sermon in the Province of Venice, northern Italy, Sheik Abd Al-Barr Al-Rawdhi prayed to Allah to “count [the Jews] one by one and kill them to the very last one.” Al-Rawdhi, leading the prayers at Al-Rahma Mosque in San Donà di Piave, called upon Allah to “turn their food to poison and make the air they breathe blazing hot.” The sermon was posted on the Internet on July 29, 2014.
Cuz I can guarantee it wasn't moved by any wire service or network in the U.S.

Gee, wonder why not?
