New York Post’s Religious Contempt

The religious contempt you expressed in your article headline is such blatant bigotry. Couching it in “One wonders whether the backlash will affect Moss’s chances on Emmy night” outs your actual intent. I am frankly shocked.

Mr. Rorke,

Your article today concerning Elizabeth Moss and her nominations for an Emmy award is a singular demonstration of bigotry. Why not just write:

“Judaism could cost ________ the Emmy.”

“Islam could cost __________ the Emmy.”

Or

“Catholicism could cost ___________ the Emmy.”

The religious contempt you expressed in your article headline is such blatant bigotry. Couching it in “One wonders whether the backlash will affect Moss’s chances on Emmy night” outs your actual intent. I am shocked.

It is incumbent on all of us to be responsible when discussing others’ religious beliefs. History—and the recent Charlottesville tragedy—reflect where hate can lead. Please do not perpetuate it.

Sincerely,
Eva Band
New York, NY
