Three Mormon women and six of their children were brutally murdered in Mexico, apparently by drug cartel gunmen. And the New York Times is on it. Well, on the victims’ religion, that is.
The brutal killing of 9 members of an American family in northern Mexico on Monday highlights the long history of religious fundamentalist settlers in the region. Our religion reporter, Elizabeth Dias, details their history back to the early 20th century. https://t.co/rfvtzdTN9i

Nothing quite like dunking on massacred Mormon women and children before the blood has dried https://t.co/HLWO6quYmt

Leave it to the New York Times to imply that the victim's religion had something to do with their murders. We are, after all, talking about women and children here. When someone I'm arguing with brings up the "Time's" as a source, I know I've won.

It’s exactly what you think it is, and what we’ve come to expect from contemporary journalism.
