Sectarianism of An-Nahar (the dying paper)

I wrote this passage on my FB regarding this lousy article from An-Nahar:  Let me explain: I believe that people who want to fast should fast, and those who want to drink should drink. I don't think that non-religious people should be sensitive to religious people especially because religious people are never sensitive to non-religious people. But what is outrageous about this article is that it is not coming from a secular (or anti-religious) point of view. It is coming from a racist and sectarian (and blatantly anti-islamic) newspaper. I mean, the secularism of the paper is only an opportunity to dig at Islam, when the paper is a mere tool of the church. So it is selective and hypocritical and fake secularism.
