Choosing Headlines Carefully

   A Vancouver newspaper’s headline recently read, “Christian Singer Charged With Murder”.
   These are the first charges in a murder that occurred 16 years ago. The accused once sang in a Christian group.
   It is fair to wonder if the paper would ever print “Muslim Singer Charged With Murder” or “Hindu Singer Charged With Murder” or “Buddhist Singer Charged With Murder”. Or would it simply say “Man Charged With Murder”?
