Move over, Trump Derangement Syndrome. Another unhinged liberal pathology is back: Chick-fil-A-phobia. Perhaps, in the interest of public health, the CDC should launch a weekly C-F-A-P surveillance report to map the recurrence of this culturally infectious disease. Early-onset symptoms include fear of pressure-cooked poultry, allergic reaction to waffle potato fries and an irrational hatred of cow costumes.
They’re on a roll and they can’t be stopped! NBC’s ultra-liberal high school drama Rise is in its sixth week and they aren't showing any signs of slowing down their obvious leftist agenda.
Con la campaña por la presidencia de México ya en marcha, Jorge Ramos entrevistó a la candidata independiente Margarita Zavala en el semanario político Al Punto que transmite la cadena Univisión. Varias porciones de la entrevista sugieren que Ramos sigue por el rumbo que trazó con su careo con Donald Trump en aquella conferencia de prensa ínfame de 2015.
It’s a timeless tale in the world of Hollywood entertainment. One can’t seem to escape the constant attacks on prayer and Christianity across a wide variety of television shows, but it appears the attacks are becoming more frequent lately. NBC’s time travel drama Timeless took its turn in Sunday’s episode, “The Kennedy Curse,” as a main character takes credit for answering his mother’s prayers instead of attributing it to God, Who, he claims, “doesn’t exist.”
In an interesting twist that was at times humorous (It’s funny because it’s true!) while at others insulting, HBO’s hit comedy Silicon Valley flipped the script on gays and Christianity and admitted to the hatred Christians endure, especially on the left coast, by having a gay character come out of the closet as a Christian.
The New Yorker approaches topics like a shallow teenager: Slap a disparaging word onto a popular topic and bingo! You have journalism. Among the long, hallowed list of people, places and things the magazine has found “creepy,” the publication’s latest target is – surprise! – the Christianity of the Chik-fil-A franchise. Blogger Dan Piepenbring found the franchise’s “pervasive Christian traditionalism” with its statue of “Jesus washing a disciple’s feet” and its policy to close on Sundays just too much.
It’s rare to see Hollywood depict Christianity or Christian prayer in a good light, but CBS’s Young Sheldon came close this week. Still, they had to add some snark at the end, as well as twist the meaning of prayer all together. But it was nice to see a mother praying over her family in the midst of an emergency, while even her atheist son is comforted and asks her to keep praying.
NBC’s new high school drama Rise has been making waves with its overabundance of extremely liberal, anti-Christian messages since it first began airing a few weeks ago. But just when you thought things couldn’t get more offensive, along comes Tuesday’s episode, “We’ve All Got Our Junk,” which surprisingly upped the ante. And yes, they are referring to the urban slang version of the word “junk” to mean genitalia.
On the NBC show Late Night with Seth Meyers, the Catholic Church was roasted as a den of pedophiles. NBC probably shouldn't be mocking sexual abuse so casually....considering Matt Lauer's long reign of preying on young-adult female staffers. Seth Meyers reported: "The Vatican recently refused to host an international women's day conference because one of the speakers was a lesbian." Wrong. Writer Jenny Hagel added: "And because they're too busy hosting a 2,000-year-long pedophile convention."
In typical liberal fashion, NBC’s Will & Grace appears to really enjoy taking cheap shots at Vice President Mike Pence. Ever since it became news that Pence was quoted in a 2002 interview with The Hill saying he never dines alone with other women or attends events where alcohol is being served without his wife, the left went into “cannot process” mode like a robot gone haywire. Rather than understanding, or even celebrating, a man who makes every effort to avoid the near occasion of sin to remain faithful to his wife, they’ve instead insisted he must either be gay, a misogynist or a male predator.
As the presidential campaign in Mexico heats up, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos sat down with Margarita Zavala, former First Lady of Mexico and current independent candidate, for an interview on his network Sunday show, Al Punto. Several exchanges from the interview suggest that Ramos is going futher down the path blazed by his obnoxious 2015 press-conference heckling of Donald Trump than anyone might have imagined.
Holy Week is upon us and Easter, the holiest day of the Christian year, is Sunday. NewsBusters readers won’t be surprised to hear that popular culture isn’t kind to Christians, but you may not have seen some of the worst examples to have polluted our television screens in the last year.
