Why is it that the media portrays the Christian-Muslim conflicts in America with such a cynical view. The Christians are portrayed with an anti-Muslim point of view, where they consider the faith to always have some kind of support for terrorism. The Muslims are portrayed as Muslims first and Americans second, where they are considered to have less rights and are in a constant battle for their civil rights. The Muslims are portrayed as though they believe America is at war against Islam. I believe it is all due to 9/11 , and America's mob mentality, where only a serious event or natural disaster can motivate an entire nation to voice there emotions and demand action.
