CNN: Offending Catholics Since 1999!

Exhibit A: Story posted today on CNN about the cartoons that are causing such an uproar. At the bottom of the story, just before the copyright is the line CNN has chosen to not show the cartoons out of respect for Islam.

Exhibit B: An article dated September 28, 1999 displaying a picture of Chris Ofili's "The Holy Virgin Mary".

Exhibit C: An article from March 27, 2000 displaying a picture of Chris Ofili's "The Holy Virgin Mary".

They've been displaying this material on their website for over six years despite common knowledge that it is not respectful of the religious beliefs of a specific religious community. So what the heck does a religion have to do to get some respect from CNN?

Oh yeah, riot and threaten to kill anyone who doesn't believe what you believe.
