This morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough compared the jihadist terrorists and their murdering twelve people in Paris, France to the Holy Catholic Church.
It began with co-host Mika Brzezinski reading a quote from The Atlantic “Europe is under siege” written by Jeffrey Goldberg.
Quote: "The European Parliament complex in Brussels, where I happen to be sitting at the moment, is meant to be a monument to post-World War II continental ideals of peaceable integration, tolerance, free speech, and openness. All of these notions seem to be under attack at once, and what is striking to me, as a relatively frequent visitor to Europe over the past year, is that not many people—until a few hours ago, at least—seem to believe that their union, and their basic freedoms, are under threat."
When Mika finishes reading, Joe pipes in (talking to both Christopher Dickey from the Daily Beast in Paris and David Ignatius of the Washington Post) with the following comparison while “catholic” Mika bobs her head in apparent agreement with Joe.
Joe says: “This was something being fought out in the Catholic Church centuries ago, when artists and playwrights and anyone criticizing the Church or criticizing the Pope would ahh…would…would…face harsh, harsh sentences. And yet the Renaissance, the entire idea of the Renaissance and the West was actually those who had the courage to stand up to the Catholic Church.”

The Catholic Church and the Islamic terrorists are the same to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.
He equates “harsh, harsh sentences” of "centuries ago" with the barbaric massacring of the police and people at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper yesterday.
Sadly, this doesn’t surprise me because it’s coming from MSNBC who are NOTORIOUS for insanity, lying and distortion in their “news” programs.

Just another day at MSNBC, nothing ever changes.
