Quick question: say you’re a newspaper polemicist, and you’re known for making a big deal out of a violent offender’s religion if it happens to be A Particular One You Have Concerns About, and you’re commenting on a recent violent incident of a very similar sort but involving someone not of That Religion, and in your commentary you’re therefore not going to speculate about connections between that offender’s beliefs and his acts because it’s not That Particular Religion – might it not be wise to avoid making punning references to that Particular unrelated Religion when writing your only coverage of the incident? Would that not just highlight your hypocrisy on the issue?
