Christianity is once again the butt of the joke on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory – this time mocking prayer and Noah’s Ark.
This past week, the MRC’s Rich Noyes charted some of the most outrageous liberal media quotes in 2016. They served as yet another example of how the masks came off of countless journalists this election year, revealing their liberal biases. However, it’s not just the case with the news media but also scripted shows airing in primetime on ABC, CBS, and NBC.
It is not enough for family-owned pastry shops to bow to the gay marriage mob. Now, they're being targeted by the social justice mafia. At my alma mater, radical Oberlin College in Ohio (which boasts hapless Baltimore mayor and rioters' champion Stephanie Rawlings Blake and bizarro feminist actress and fake rape accuser Lena Dunham as graduates), the operators of a small-business bakery are under siege by vengeful students and administrators trying to crush them under the wheels of the race-baiters' bandwagon.
ABC seemed intent on taking down organized religion on Tuesday night. In the Fresh Off the Boat episode “WWJD: What Would Jessica Do?” Jessica (Constance Wu) is terrified she will lose her youngest son Evan (Ian Chen) to God.
The CW’s Jane the Virgin went the predictable crooked, corrupt Catholic Church route on Monday night.
The liberal media threw a proverbial hissy fit Monday in response to President-Elect Donald Trump’s dubious claim that millions of votes were cast illegally. While seeming pretend that Trump would be the first president ever to tell a lie, public-radio Bob Garfield went on a long winded tirade, on MSNBC’s All In, railing against the “Right wing media.” “The people who get it and we at the mainstream media, you know, get the straight dope but about half the electorate is getting their information from other sources, none credible,” he whined.
To follow-up on the adulterous priest (which still continues by the way), Friday night’s episode of Fox's The Exorcist delivers yet another awful depiction of religious figures. This time, it is a nun who must be demeaned as she actually suggests “mercy killing” as an option.
“Not everything is about you being gay, Kenny!” Oh, how happy I was to hear those words finally spoken on ABC’s The Real O’Neals, Tuesday. Unfortunately, even when the show takes its attention off how gay Kenny O’Neal (Noah Galvin) is, they can’t seem to shake off being anti-Catholic, anti-conservative, or anti-anything decent. This episode focuses on taking down the sanctity of marriage.
In last week’s season opener of CBS’s 2 Broke Girls, Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge) and Oleg (Jonathan Kite) welcomed baby Barbara into the world. This week’s episode, “And the Godmama Drama,” features the baptism of baby Barbara and the desecration of the sacrament.
Fox's show The Exorcist is much like its film predecessor in taking delight in how outrageously shocking it can go. Unfortunately, the exploits in an R-rated movie are apparently now suitable for a primetime television series. In this case, they spread out the story of a possessed girl over a full season with more conflicts from the priests and more gruesome demonic possession.
In a Sunday piece, writer Lyz Lenz argued that conservative Christians make a glaring, politically motivated exception to their belief that “a marriage is forever” when they “attack [Hillary] Clinton for staying with” Bill. Lenz noted that “numerous friends and relatives of mine have been counseled [against divorce] by pastors and Christian counselors, who argue that couples ought to persist in marriages where there has been infidelity, cruelty and worse, because God’s call to a lifelong union supersedes all others.” Nonetheless, “within this tale of marriage and redemption, there doesn’t seem to be room” for Hillary.
A pesar de la importancia de las creencias católica y cristiana evangélica entre la población hispana de Estados Unidos, los esfuerzos de los candidatos presidenciales para involucrar a los votantes desde una perspectiva religiosa están casi totalmente ausente en la cobertura noticiosa de las dos cadenas líderes de televisión en español, Univisión y Telemundo, en lo que va de la campaña electoral.
