Doing For Truth What Others Do For A Lie

Recently, Dr. Ben Carson came under criticism for for making an contrasting analogy of the zeal of the terrorist group ISIS to that of the zeal of Patriots who fought for their freedom. Dr. Carson said this:
Dr Ben Carson
"They [ISIS] got the wrong philosophy, but they're willing to die for what they believe, while we are busily giving away every belief and every value for the sake of political correctness...We have to change that."
Immediately, with headlines such as "Carson likens Islamic State to American Patriots" (HERE) the media began to spin the commentary claiming that Carson was in some way denigrating patriotism and American values, and somehow paralleling the fight for freedom to the blight and deadly misdeeds of terrorists and terrorism.

Our View

The media, primarily the Associated Press, which appears to have created the headline, should be ashamed of themselves. Anyone informed about Dr. Carson's political position and the terror threat of ISIS can readily understand that Dr. Carson was correct in his assertion...that we, that live in freedom seeking peace, truth and righteousness, are only challenged by our laziness and reluctance to engage the culture. Many of us who know the truth, have caved and cowered to a culture of super sensitivity, political correctness, and social conformity.

Is Satire Freedom?

"What I'm about to say is maybe a little pompous, but I'd rather die standing up than live on my knees." 
~ Stéphane Charbonnier aka: "Charb"
(deceased Lead Editor, Charlie Hebdo Magazine)

Among many things, one of the more disturbing events that has recently taken place is the murder of 12 journalists associated with the Charlie Hebdo magazine of Paris France and the subsequent murder and killing of an additional 18 or so people as a result. I first want to say that my heart and the heart of the representatives of the Dunamis Word and many of its readers goes out in support and prayer of all the families who have lost their loved ones during this time. 

To the point, the Hebdo organization was made famous by its continual mocking and criticism of almost all things religious and all things that have to do with authority. A Hebdo staff member describes Hebdo's role as follows: 
"The aim is to laugh. ... We want to laugh at the extremists — every extremist. They can be Muslim, Jewish, Catholic. Everyone can be religious, but extremist thoughts and acts we cannot accept." ~ Laurent Léger, Charlie Hebdo staff member in 2012 to CNN News. 
Obviously the purpose is to not only criticize, but laugh, and make fun of many things, but primarily religion. A favorite among atheists and so called "freethinkers", concepts of the Hebdo magazine were delivered in effort to lower the veneration given to many religions, especially the veneration given to Christianity and Islam, and to incite thoughts against inconsistencies displayed by "extremists" within religious groups. Here is what a recent report about the Hebdo organization recounts:
