Amazon has hopped on the “let’s smear Christianity” train with the release of its latest series Good Omens. Based on the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, the series follows an unexpected friendship between an angel named Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and a demon named Crowley (David Tennant) as they attempt to prevent the end times. Together, they defy their respective sides to find and, if necessary, kill the Antichrist, an eleven-year-old boy named Adam (Sam Taylor Buck). Needless to say, this doesn’t follow the spirit of the Bible.
A new survey of college students by the liberal-leaning Knight Foundation shows the future of the First Amendment doesn't look so bright in America. It found 41 percent said "hate speech" should not be protected by the Constitution. Only 58 percent thought it should. In fact, a 2017 survey out of UCLA found that out of 1,500 college students who were asked whether "hate speech" is protected by the First Amendment, only 39 percent correctly said yes. The Thought Police are gaining ground.
Lizz Winstead is no stranger to subtlety and grace. The co-creator and former head writer of the Daily Show announced in a Twitter thread that she has changed the name of her abortion advocacy group from the refined “Lady Parts Justice” to the more low-key “Abortion Access Front!” or “Abortion AF” for short (AF is also short for “as fuck” in internet lingo).
Syfy’s gruesome series Happy! is finally ending its second season. This seems like a perfect time to remind everyone how much it hates Christianity. There have already been jabs at “bringing sexy back” to Easter with an evil “Make Easter Great Again” plan, so the bar is already low. Somehow it gets worse with the assertion that God is simply an imaginary friend and prayers do nothing.
Progressive pastor Rev. Adam Eriksen and his Clackamas United Church have been generating some buzz around his community in Milwaukie, Oregon, according to a CNN report posted on Tuesday. On the marquee sign in front of the church, the pastor has posted messages that read “Harriet Tubman deserves to be on the $20. End white supremacy” and “Our transgender siblings have heartbeats” in response to the “heartbeat” abortion bills being passed across the country. In short, this is CNN’s type of Christian, quite distinct from those stuffy old God n’ morality types the network so disdains.
In an article posted on Monday, The Guardian attacked what the liberal Tennessee Equality Project has dubbed the “Slate of Hate”-- a set of bills designed to protect religious liberty in Tennessee. The headline asserted that the state is “set to ‘legalize hate.’”
Kira Davis at RedState reports that the "woke" CNN documentary series United Shades of America wasted the time of two pro-life activists as the host, comedian W. (Walter) Kamau Bell, decided to air an almost entirely one-sided lecture about "reproductive justice." There are no "united shades" on this show. It's divisive agitprop from the get-go.
Acting chops aside, Anne Hathaway has always looked like the type of person whose superpowers include the ability to give one heck of a condescending lecture. As it turns out, the white woman is chiding other “white women” for fighting for the lives of unborn children of any color. On social media, the Ocean's 8 actress slammed the “complicity of white women” in producing the recent pro-life Alabama legislation signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.
Maybe GLAAD, Hollywood’s gay lobby, can find some satisfaction in the fact that through all their grandstanding, more gay representation has found its way into the film industry. Turns out, 2018 was one of the best years in the history of gya representation in movies, but as we all have come to expect, GLAAD’s never one to shut up. Yes, there was ample gay visibility, but what about transgender visibility?
According to its producers, pro-life film Unplanned has been effectively “banned” in Canada due to several prominent Canadian distributors’ refusal to pick up the film because of its pro-life content. Both Landmark and Cineplex, “two of the largest distributors in Canada,” have refused to run Unplanned in Canadian theaters. Writer and producer for the film, Chuck Konzelman expressed his belief that it was due to the film’s pro-life content and not due to a “lack of consumer demand.”
Amazon’s Fleabag is, as described by the Guardian, a sitcom “about terrible people and broken lives.” Somehow, that premise was enough for it get a second season that was released May 17. Even worse, it was apparently enough of an excuse to bring a priest down to its shoddy level.
On Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher devoted part of his closing monologue to trashing Attorney General Bill Barr. While the attack on Barr was probably expected, few could have predicted that the HBO host would use Barr as a pretense to tear into his religion, which Maher referred to as the “cult” of Catholicism.
