At this point, there’s little that HBO’s The New Pope can do to shock audiences anymore. It’s already ridiculed the Church, propped up needless sex, and "upgraded" the Bible. Comparing “whores” to saints or revealing pedophilia in the high ranks is almost no big deal. And that’s what makes the series worse.
HBO is currently running a dark little miniseries called The New Pope, which is basically a reboot of 2017's The Young Pope. Both sprang from the mind of Italian creator Paolo Sorrentino, and both are scabrously anti-Catholic, which never hurts you with the elites in Manhattan and Hollywood. In between these, HBO trashed televangelists in The Righteous Gemstones. They're never going to make a nasty series called The New Ayatollah.
This was bound to happen eventually. The latest episode of HBO’s The New Pope now has the audacity to suggest “upgrading” the Bible and the Church to include gay marriage. Somehow, I don’t think the series that’s bashed the Church and called prostitution a “miracle” has any right to lecture Christians.
Not satisfied with simply overtaking its predecessor season, HBO’s The New Pope now seems determined to stuff as many offensive materials in a single hour. Within the latest hour alone, we have Marilyn Manson advising the Pope, rebellious nuns asking for equal rights, homosexual priests sleeping around, and even more breasts. Never before has a show about the Church so desperately needed Jesus.
One of the most revealing things about the leftist mindset is the usual leftist's lack of self-awareness about his own intolerance, hatefulness and inclusiveness — unless you distort all those terms to whitewash the reality. I will never forget reading (and writing about) the unfortunate experience of Professor Janice Price, an education instructor at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana.
The NBC sitcom Perfect Harmony can be a charming show that often shows a positive, loving image of rural Christian churchgoers. While the show also goes off-key at times in its portrayal of rural Christians, it has steered clear of pushing contemporary sexual agendas.
It’s always been popular to hate on Christians and religion on television it seems. ABC’s Stumptown gives us the latest version by delivering a story about a terrible Christian woman doing “the Lord’s work” by separating Native American families. At this point, is there any other type of Christian on TV?
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was the latest 2020 Democrat candidate to appear on Wednesday’s The View. The hosts gave him a warm welcome, fawning over his decision to self-fund his campaign and giggling over his strange tweets during last night’s debate. In fact, nearly all the criticism Bloomberg faced from the hosts was about not being liberal enough. Yet co-host Meghan McCain did get one question in about his party’s problem with anti-Semitism.
Our democracy is dying: Russia/Ukrainegate has floundered and legal abortion may not be long for this world. In this dire time for progressives, a disgusting pro-abortion art installation must give them comfort. The Guardian and Bloomberg News praised the latest abomination in modern art as a necessary balm to the country’s anti-abortion “stigma” and a great way to “raise funds” for the child-killing procedure.
Not wanting to be outdone by Netflix, HBO presents its own anti-religious series in The New Pope. This companion series to HBO’s previous blasphemous, slanderous, and all-around unpleasant series The Young Pope is set to make up for the nearly three-year absence of terribleness. If the "First Episode" is any indication, we’re only getting started.
NBC’s flagship affiliate WNBC in New York City faced a well-deserved backlash tsunami on Thursday for an ugly piece that appeared to blame the rise of anti-Semitic attacks in the city and surrounding communities on....Jewish people themselves. Thursday morning, an authorless piece entitled “Anti-Semitism Grows in Jewish Communities in NYC Suburbs” was tweeted from the @NBCNewYork Twitter account: “With the expansion of Orthodox communities outside NYC has come civic sparring, and some fear the recent violence may be an outgrowth of that conflict.”
If you were going to tell me that 2019 would be filled with abortion plots, even more conservative hatred, and some serious blasphemy, I wouldn’t be surprised. After all, last year’s roundup hardly promised a good new year. However, the latest batch of liberal propaganda may shock and disappoint anyone, as television often does nowadays.
