JK Rowling assails Murdoch tweet about Muslims

NEW YORK (AP) — J.K. Rowling had a few words for Rupert Murdoch.

The "Harry Potter" author responded sharply to Murdoch's tweet that while "Maybe most Moslems peaceful," all were responsible for "growing jihadist cancer" until they worked to destroy it.

Murdoch's tweet Friday came two days after the deadly terrorist attack in Paris at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. The media mogul also tweeted: "Political correctness makes for denial and hypocrisy."

Rowling sent a handful of tweets Sunday attacking Murdoch. She wrote that since she and Murdoch were both Christians, she felt responsible for him and would "auto-excommunicate." She mockingly accepted the blame for the Spanish Inquisition and for any violence by Christian fundamentalists.

"Oh, and Jim Bakker," she added, referring to the American televangelist who was jailed for fraud.

There are many widely varying religions all based on the Old Testament. Over the years the bible has been abused and misquoted to support all manner of ghastly attacks. Don't think christianity has any moral high ground here. Hindus have extremists and so do Buddhists. Religion has caused more wars and killed more people than any other single cause in mankinds history.

Rowling missed the point -- she should be excusing the crusades, the slave trade, the slaughter of native americans,,,, the list is endless

Same tired old excuses , by the way it was the Muslim arab traders who sold the slaves to the west. and i think we from the west have moved on from those days

Indeed -- the good old days when muslim and christian co-operated??? If you lump all adherents to the bible together as christian and all adherents to the koran as muslim -- then islam has the second largest following in the world. Christianity spread because it was born into the Roman empire and the subsequent empire builders were almost exclusivley christian. Now islam is spreading by the internet and making inroads into the christian following. Given the obscene atrocities and the amounts of money both religions generate there is a good case for taking a step back and asking yourself -- "What is religion?"

Good question so.....

Religion is about money.

Terrorist attacks are not about religion

I am afraid I cannot list all the atrocities being carried out by Muslims around the world as there is not enough room but please enlighten me about all the atrocities that Christians are commuting. I do realise most faiths commit them but they do seem in a very large minority

Hitler was a christian .. need I really say more ????

Exactly.

And this is why I keep saying that most people have actually confused Religion with a belief in God.

Appologists like Rowling should really take the time to read the Quran - It aint no harry potter and Mohammad makes Dolores Umbridge look like an angel! - get ready for some real blood, violence and rape JK - not for the faint of heart.

Mind you he did like children ,after all his wife was 6 ,still a little young for Harry Potter.though.
