Where’s the outrage?

To the Editor:

It’s been brought to my attention that “Saturday Night Live” had a skit disgracing Jesus Christ by depicting Him as a resurrected, murderous militant out to pay revenge on His accusers and enemies who crucified Him. If this would have been about Muhammad, “SNL” would no longer exist.

Where’s the outrage from the media and the public? This, to me, seems to be a hate crime. It’s time that the playing field is level in all areas of religion and life when it comes to hatred, especially toward Christians.
