Top Cow's Matt Hawkins thinks "Islamophobia" is a problem but not the Koran?

After reading these preview pages from a new series called The Tithe, written by Top Cow's leading editor/publisher Matt Hawkins, I can only conclude he's one of the biggest modern embarrassments in comicdom. The title of this story is "Islamophobia", no less. As you'll notice, one of the opening narrative captions says, "Sunni and Shia are to Islam what Catholic and Protestant are to Christianity; doctrinal differences often debated with bloodshed." Which not only runs the gamut of moral equivalence, they make it sound like all the different denominations of Christianity are no better than Muslims.

The captions also say, "Al Qaeda, the Taliban and ISIS are Sunni", and "The 9-11 hijackers were all Sunni too." Is Hawkins and company saying that there's a difference between two or more sects? Then all he's saying is that he's never bothered to read the Koran, because all interpretations derive from the exact same source. And Bill Roggio at the Long War Journal reported 5 years ago that Iran's been backing 3 Shia terrorist gangs. The Clarion Project has a list of as many as 40 Shia militias Iran's supporting. So if Hawkins is attempting to absolve the Shia sect of any guilt, he's only resorted to apologia.

There's more here about the next issue, and the summary says:
They’ve uncovered the truth about the terrorist attacks, but are told not to reveal it. CIA vs. FBI in the highest stakes of all.
I'm sure we won't want to know what that is exactly.

When Top Cow was founded as an Image affiliate in the early 1990s, their primary goal was fantasy entertainment. Now, they're going out of their way to confuse fantasy with reality. They should've stuck with the kind of science-fantasy products they were known for years before (Cyberforce, Witchblade, Darkness, etc). Now, left-wing politics seems to be all they can think about doing.

Makes me yearn for the days when Hawkins just did Lady Pendragon, More Than Mortal and all other "bad girl" related fare in the late 90's/early 00's. However, every comic writer wants to be a pundit, these days. Hawkins is no different, apparently.

So, would it be OK to describe terrorists as "Sunni" but not as "Muslims" or "Islamists"?

George W. Bush was always careful to make a distinction between Muslims and terrorists, and to insist that we were not at war with Islam, only against a small splinter group of extremists.

Obama has repeatedly condemned Christianity and praised Islam. And he has never made distinctions. He said that "we" (Christians) "can't get on our high horse" and criticize terrorists, because "terrible deeds (the Inquisition and the Crusades) were committed in the name of Christ" (500+ years ago). Whenever he makes his "so's your old man" argument, he makes no distinction between Catholics and Protestants.

Christianity and Judaism eventually outgrew violence and holy wars. Maybe Islam will, someday. But it hasn't yet.
