Last week, vehement anti-Trumper George Will declared that conservatism in 2017 is “soiled by scowling primitives.” Washington Monthly blogger Martin Longman doesn’t disagree, but he contends that Will is partly to blame for that sordid state of affairs.


In a show that has already stunned and offended many, Monday night’s season finale of Lucifer on Fox ended with more of the same insulting anti-Christian agenda and Biblically inaccurate storyline that it’s been pushing on viewers from the start.


The May 17 episode of NBC’s reliably liberal Law and Order: Special Victims Unit quickly picked up the mantle of anti-Christian media, portraying Christians as humorless stiffs who believe rape can cure homosexuality. The episode centers on Ann Davenport, a small town girl from Indiana on a church trip to New York City. While the group is meandering through Times Square, Ann has the audacity to reach out to her lesbian friend Lydia who left Indiana at 16 to move to the city.


On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, liberal comedian John Fugelsang mocked "right-wing Christians" as people who have "rejected the teachings of Jesus," and, by voting for Donald Trump, were voting for "Caligula, Judas, and the Golden Calf all in one convenient package." A bit later, after right-leaning guest Kirsten Haglund recalled that evangelical Christian pastors have been under pressure from church members to support President Trump, race-obsessed MSNBC host Joy Reid introduced race into the discussion as she wondered if President Barack Obama was viewed as an "alien" and that Trump is "what a President is supposed to look like" from the point of view of conservative church goers.


In the May 7 episode of HBO’s Veep titled “Justice,” former President Selina Meyers (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) attends the funeral for fictitious Supreme Court Justice Tenny and takes a swipe at a Supreme Court decision. The episode also perfectly illustrates how a cable news station (in this case CNN) can run with a rumor whether it is based in truth or not, aka fake news.


Appearing as a panel member on Monday's At This Hour with Kate Bolduan on CNN to discuss the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, CNN political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson twice used the label "far right" -- a suggestion of extremism seldomly seen applied by journalists to liberals  -- as she predicted that conservatives will be watching to see if Justice Gorsuch makes the kinds of rulings they approve of ideologically. Henderson recalled: "And a lot of people, particularly from the far right and conservatives, are really going to be looking at this justice..."


In an op-ed published in Friday’s print edition of USA Today, The Atlantic contributor and Religion News Service (RNS) columnist Jonathan Merritt lashed out at conservative Christians for opposing the so-called gay “moment” in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast remake, charging they’re coming across as “antiquated bigots” keeping people from “coexist[ing].”

 


At the National Prayer Breakfast last week, President Trump promised to "totally destroy" the so-called "Johnson Amendment," a law that prohibits churches from endorsing or opposing political candidates at the risk of losing their tax-exempt status.


Who’s responsible for perpetuating the Culture Wars? A good bet is it’s the one who casts the first Taliban/Al Qaeda/Sharia Law stone. So today, that would be Catherine Rampell, with a droolingly stupid smear of American Christians in the Feb. 3 Washington Post. 


On Thursday afternoon, our friends at RedState flagged this peculiar development that ABC News refused an exchange from the David Muir-President Trump interview where Trump scolded Muir for the media’s lack of coverage of the March for Life versus the Women’s March on Washington. 


When it comes to protests, the national mainstream media plays a deceptive numbers game. For instance, the press gave huge coverage to last weekend’s March for Women, which drew a reported 200,000 people protesting the Trump Administration and allegedly proclaimed solidarity with women. 


Christianity is once again the butt of the joke on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory – this time mocking prayer and Noah’s Ark.
