Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart took another swipe at Fox News when he hit the network’s fearmongering on Muslim-related stories.
First, the Comedy Central host ripped into the network’s take on a story about NASA reaching out to the Muslim world.
Stewart then blasted the networks’ reporting on mosques being built in the US.
“There are a number of people asking why are these mosques being built in my community,” said one Fox News reporter.
Fox News interviewed one Christian pastor who claimed people fear the mosque because they spread Islam. “There’s some people that are afraid and they are afraid for good reason,” said Pastor Wayne DeVROU of the First Reformed Church. “Because Islamic philosophy and ideology starts in a mosque.”
“What? One of the tenets of Islam is to spread Islam?” asked Stewart.
To make the point that Islam wasn’t the only religion that intended to propagate itself, Stewart then quoted several passages from the Bible to illustrate that Christians also have the goal of spreading their religion.
