MEDIA BIAS: Leftist New York Times Compares Catholic Church with the radical Muslim Brotherhood

The New York Times compared the Catholic Church to the terrorism-endorsing Muslim Brotherhood:
The Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928, is the oldest and largest Islamist movement in the world, with affiliates in nearly every Muslim country and adherents in Europe and the United States. Its size and diversity, and the decades-old legal ban that has kept it from genuine political power in Egypt, make it difficult to sum up simply. As the Roman Catholic Church encompasses leftist liberation theology and conservative anti-abortion advocacy, so the Brotherhood includes both practical reformers and firebrand ideologues.
NewsBusters responds to the NYT:
This is not only offensive, but inaccurate in its crude metaphors that prefer politics over theology. Pope Benedict XIV in particular is a longtime critic of so-called “liberation theology,” as obviously was anti-communist Pope John Paul. As Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict wrote that it “constitutes a fundamental  threat to the faith of the church.”

    The New York Times has not only lost all credibility , they have lost all contact with reality and common sense . 98% of all terrorism worldwide has been muslim inflicted for the last thirty years or more . Where do the Roman Catholics plus all other Christian churches come into play ? I think it is something like .o3% .
