We’re all perfectly aware that Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale doesn’t like Christianity. Why else would it paint the religion as a part of a theological dictatorship where women are treated like cattle, child brides are legal and men beat their wives? After all, it’s not like the show’s going to acknowledge those are very real things in the Islamic world today. Instead, we get a moment trashing Catholic priests and Christians right before taking part in a baptism in the latest episode.
Tuesday, June 11 marked the beginning of another season of Pose on FX and the flood of LGBTQ+ activism that comes with it. By now, the constants cries about homophobia and racism should come as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with this show based in New York in the late '80s and early '90s.
Ever since her decision to go political back in October, Taylor Swift has chugged the entire pitcher of liberal Kool-aid. On Saturday, Swift posted a letter she wrote to Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander on her Instagram. The letter urged the Senator to support the Equality Act, an “anti-discrimination” bill that discriminates against religious views on traditional marriage and biological sex.
June is officially “LGBTQ Pride Month”, and the media, Hollywood, and big corporations are loud and proud about it. However, not everyone is celebrating. On Saturday, Rhode Island Bishop Thomas Tobin tweeted a warning to Catholics that the LGBTQ “Pride Month” “encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals,” urging Catholics to avoid supporting such events.
The View hosts spent a segment on Monday’s show celebrating June as gay pride month. As usual, the hosts found a way to bash President Trump and religious conservatives. Co-host Sunny Hostin bashed Catholics who were against gay pride month, alleging children were safer at pride parents than in church and Jesus would've attended a pride parade.
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.
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.
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.
When lefties get upset, accusation of, or allusions to, racism can start flying. The left is very upset about states passing laws restricting abortion. On cue, Daily Beast writer Barrett Holmes Pitner composed a piece claiming that Alabama’s recent pro-life legislation is borrowed from old pro-slavery America and Jim Crow. The point, ladies, is that the South’s gonna do it again, and this time they’re gonna put “‘y’all back” in chains (hat tip Joe Biden).
Wednesday at the hot topics table, the hosts of ABC’s The View criticized the abortion banning bill that was passed in the Alabama Senate last night. Co-host Joy Behar cried sexism, while Whoopi Goldberg complained about religion influencing politics, and Sunny Hostin argued with Meghan McCain over the meaning of pro-life.
Most Hollywood liberals not only don’t live in Alabama, they don’t visit the state either. But that hadn’t stopped their fury over the state’s attempt to limit the availability of abortion. After the Alabama state senate voted 25-6 in favor of what the liberal media are attacking as a “near-total abortion ban” on May 15, celebrities who celebrate and revere abortion rights reacted on Twitter as if they were possessed and splashed with holy water.
