Open Questions to MPR

Today on Marketplace the moderator made some comments about the fact that he was guilty as charged for not having his Christmas shopping done already.

In the wake of some of the high profile terminations and sanctions against moderators for their political contribution, which were seen as indicators of bias and endangering the audience’s ability to view them as objective.

My question is this, why the double standard for religion? Isn’t stating that you are buying Christmas presents an open endorsement of your religious bias?

Isn’t it an indirect financial contribution to a religious “candidate”?

A financial contribution to a specific point of view?

Shouldn’t the same objectivity that is extended to political candidates be applied to religious candidates?
