New York Times Says Running Pam Geller’s Anti-Islam Ad Could Put Lives In Danger

The New York Times found itself at the center of a controversy on Thursday over its refusal to immediately run an anti-Islam ad.

Fox News and the Daily Caller ran stories questioning whether the Times‘ decision to indefinitely delay publishing ad was a sign the paper had a religious double-standard.

The articles note that the Times previously ran an anti-Catholic ad that, among other things, said faith in the religion was misplaced, “after two decades of sex scandals involving preying priests, church complicity, collusion and cover-up going all the way to the top.”

But when Stop Islamization of America director Pamela Geller asked to run a paid advertisement with a similar style and anti-Islam message, the Times refused, at least for now, telling Geller that “the fallout from running this ad now could put U.S. troops and/or civilians in the [Afghan] region in danger.”

But the Times didn’t shut the door to running the ad altogether.
