Shoppers and Worshippers

It is telling which of these stories got more media attention — Kenyan Shopping Mall Attack by Al-Shabaab Leaves 68 Dead and Suicide Bombers Kill 79 at Pakistan Church During Sermon.

The former was a front page story in my local paper; the latter ended up on page ten. The former was news on NPR; the latter left unmentioned. While there may be a conspiracy afoot, it may also more simply be that just we've grown used to religious violence perpetrated by Muslims.
