New York Times' Rome bureau chief Jason Horowitz travelled with Pope Francis on the pope’s recent round-trip to Africa. Horowitz’s previous reporting clearly shows his affection for the politically left-wing emphases of this pope, especially on migrant rights and the environment, and a mutual hostility to American critics. Under two datelines marked “Aboard The Papal Plane,” Horowitz let Pope Francis fly, nodding along to the pontiff’s left-wing political views versus "ultraconservative" American Catholics.
Praise the Lord, HBO’s The Deuce is finally airing its third and final season. Although the network still has a sick obsession with sex and nudity, we can at least close the book on this awful series pretty soon. Until then, we have to contend with more sex, drugs, and porn films even within this season premiere. As a bonus, they even throw in a little blasphemy.
You pro-lifers say you care about the lives of unborn babies. You may even believe that’s what you care about. But you’re not fooling Guardian writer Jill Filipovic. She knows what you really care about is oppressing women. That’s your “goal.” The only appropriate response required is, “Jill, you’re a malicious idiot.” But let’s look at her assertions anyway. Like all her friends, Flipovic is convinced that pro-life activism is actually a twisted facade to cover up the fact that it’s actually about “misogyny.”
As the abortion fight intensifies, with Planned Parenthood withdrawing from Title X government funding, and multiple abortion restrictions going into several states’ law in January, pro-choice advocates’ hysteria is at a fever pitch. You know the kind of hysteria that isn’t satisfied with viewing abortion as a necessary evil, but insists on calling the murderous procedure a facilitator of “great joys” in a career-driven woman’s life. That’s what Alyssa Milano is insisting, and it raises the question: what exactly is Milano’s career? But we digress.
Many Americans think of Sunday at the day for church, but The New York Times encourages its subscribers to see Sunday in a much more sybaritic way. This seemed really obvious on August 4 in Sunday Business, Sunday Styles, and Sunday Review.
You follow the antics of AOC and the so-called "Squad" of hers and you wonder if the Left has lost its mind. Your instincts are correct. And if it's any comfort to them, they're not alone. In fact there are even loonier elements loose among the elites.
On July 11th, Huffington Post Highline published an article by Eve Fairbanks about the dramatic rise in millennial nuns. Given The Huff Post’s lefty bent, you would expect the article to be derisive of young conservative women who choose a religious life. Shock: the tone was respectful, appreciating the role of religion in a spiritually-starved secular world.
On Friday's New Day show, as Alisyn Camerota interviewed Sister Norma Pimentel about the mental condition of illegal immigrant children who pass through her care at a shelter she runs after they are released from Border Patrol detention, the CNN host invited her guest to criticize fellow Christians who are allegedly "demonizing migrants."
Pride Month has ended. Big corporations have shed their rainbow skins; the media’s daily celebration of drag queen shenanigans and sexualized children has trickled down to its ordinary amount. But The New York Times managed one last gay huzzah, and it was a shot at the Catholic Church to boot.
Last Tuesday, Madonna teased her blatantly controversial “God Control” music video. The wait is now over. Today, the pop singer released her gun control-preaching propaganda piece and it’s just as tactless as expected.
Novelist John Irving heaved up “The Anti-Abortion Crusade’s Cruel History” onto the op-ed page of Monday’s New York Times. The text box provided this melodramatic slander: “Abortion opponents don’t care about an unwanted child or the mother.” That smear is repeated in Irving’s text. That tired bit of abuse skips a rather obvious point: That keeping the child from being killed is certainly an excellent start toward “caring” for it, as opposed to aborting it. While it’s not a perfect corollary between pro-life and pro-choice, studies indicate that “red states” residents are more generous givers than those of “blue states.”
Madonna seems to enjoy showing off her ignorance of Christian beliefs. Last week, the self-proclaimed “Israelite” singer asserted that Jesus would be pro-abortion. Last night, the “Like A Virgin” singer posted a picture of herself -- wearing nothing but a black lace bra and fishnets -- with a statue of the Virgin Mary on her Instagram. The Virgin covered Madonna’s cleavage.
