If you’re a “white evangelical Christian,” you might want to check your back for a bullseye -- or maybe just a “Kick Me!” sign. Everybody’s looking for someone or something to blame for our current crisis, and for the progressives of The New York Times, The Washington Post and other elite newsrooms, you’re it. (Shhh, don’t mention the Chinese government, you racist!)
In a time when many Christians are going out of their way to ease the suffering of those who have contracted Chinese Virus, lefties are going out of their way to trash them because of their beliefs. On Wednesday radical progressives smeared Rev. Franklin Graham and his charity’s makeshift coronavirus clinics because the Christian and son of Billy Graham disagrees with homosexual marriage. Yeah how’s that for unifying in times of crisis?
On FX’s Breeders, Paul (Martin Freeman) and Ally (Daisy Haggard) are no fans of God or religion. Yet while Ally prepares to scatter her dead father’s ashes, she still goes into an empty church, even though Paul acknowledges to her friend, Darren (Patrick Baladi) that she “hates God.” Ally demonstrates just how much contempt she has for places of worship, and her family, when she curses them out for interrupting her moment alone:
Why, in March of 2020, is The Washington Post devoting four pages of the Sunday newspaper to a one-hit wonder from 1992? Because she ripped up a picture of sainted Pope John Paul II on Saturday Night Live. There won’t be a four-page spread with eight pictures on Ugly Kid Joe or the Soup Dragons. But say “Christianity lied to me,” and your latest attempt at rehabilitation gets another round of hosannas. And there, in paragraph 7, we're told she converted to Islam. But nowhere in the piece is O'Connor asked to reconcile her middle-finger feminism with her newfound faith tradition.
It is nothing new for Fox’s The Simpsons to mock Christians, but it happened once again in the March 15 episode titled “Better Off Ned.” Bart Simpson found himself in trouble and facing suspension from school over a prank gone bad, so he used a fake hand grenade during a school performance to cause a commotion.
We’ve finally reached the end. Starting next week, HBO’s The New Pope will no longer crowd our screens with endless religious smears. Sadly, there’s still the finale to contend with, and the series wasn’t going down without one last blow to Christianity. The show depicting the behavior of the Vatican boldly declares the threat of Catholic fundamentalism.
Hollywood actresses always seem to make an appearance whenever there's a chance that one less baby might be aborted. Celebrity feminists Elizabeth Banks and Busy Philipps joined Democratic lawmakers and pro-abortion demonstrators at the foot of the Supreme Court on March 4 to stand in solidarity with baby-killing as a recent legal case involving the procedure was being heard.
The one thing worse than the awful things the people of HBO’s The New Pope do is the awful things these people try to shove down our throats. Sure, insulting the Church and the people in it is annoying and hateful, but attempting to “fix” them is practically grotesque. Coming from this show’s knowledge of priests and nuns, it’s clear the series is qualified to talk about neither.
On Saturday night, as MSNBC host Ali Velshi hosted his network's live special coverage of the South Carolina Democratic Primary results, he held a discussion and worry fest over the Donald Trump administration's handling of the Coronavirus issue. The liberal host not only mocked Vice President Mike Pence's religious belief in prayer -- which he referred to as "pray the gay away" -- as Velshi blamed him for more HIV infections in Indiana, but he also brought up President Trump's opposition to gun control as a reason not to trust him to deal with an epidemic.
If you have been confused about whether Mo (Alex Newell) is a guy or a girl on Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist, you're not the only one. That's because Mo - a he - is gender fluid.
On Friday's New Day show, CNN's John Avlon presented a "Reality Check" segment in which he listed a number of alleged reasons that Vice President Mike Pence's past suggests that he will not be suitable for coordinating the federal government's efforts against the coronavirus. Avlon not only hinted that Vice President Pence's history of praying is "superstition," but, amongst his list, he even suggested that being skeptical of climate alarmism was a sign that sometimes the vice president is "barely on speaking terms with science."
CNN's John Avlon joined At This Hour host Kate Bolduan on Thursday to condemn the selection of Vice President Pence to lead the federal government's response to the coronavirus. But, what was an attack on Pence morphed into an attack that implied that any social conservative or religious person would be unqualified to lead a public health task force in a time of crisis.
