CNN Refuses to Show Cover of Charlie Hedbo

"CNN will not show you the new cover, which depicts the Prophet Muhammad, because it is our policy not to show potentially offensive images of the prophet."

CNN employs a different standard when it comes to offending Catholics and Christians. CNN has an "open season" policy when it comes to showing offensive images of the Savior, Jesus Christ, and Mary, the Mother of God.

Two images that are certainly "potentially offensive" to Christians are currently on CNN's website.

In a gallery of "10 works of art that shocked the world," CNN displays Piss Christ, an image of a crucifix submerged in the artist's urine, and The Holy Virgin Mary, an image of Mary, Mother of God, surrounded by cut-outs from porn magazines and elephant dung.

Read CNN's captions to the offensive images of the crucified Jesus and Mary.

Of course, no images of "the prophet" are included. That would violate CNN's policy.
