Whenever the Catholic Church gets into any hot water, the liberal media is always there to fire off some ignorant criticism or scathing tirade. Of course, it’s the perfect opportunity to channel their ire for the Church, so why hold back? Daily Show host and liberal mascot Trevor Noah didn’t hold back with his anti-Catholic monologue on Wednesday.
In an entertainment world that routinely mocks Christianity, one big name actor is using his platform to share his love of God. After starring in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, actor Chris Pratt won “Summer Movie Actor” during the 2018 Teen Choice Awards held Sunday evening. And he used the opportunity to unabashedly praise God to a crowd of teenagers.
Most national and international media display an astounding degree of selective perception when covering remarks and actions by Pope Francis. The latest example is the overwhelmingly celebratory coverage of the Pope’s decision to revise the Catholic catechism to express across-the-board opposition to the death penalty.
On Sunday, panelists on MSNBC’s AM Joy attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his defense of religious liberty in the United States. Without question or dissent, Sessions was condemned in the harshest of terms. Host Joy Reid asked Minister Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove about his position that defending religious liberty is really only defending conservative Christians. He claimed: “I think this way that religious freedom is being framed is rooted in the history of slave holder religion and the way in the 20th century that it tried to justify discrimination.”
In addition to field trips and picnics, some liberals in the media are considering new ways of building family spirit…like abortion.
Hysteria has been coursing through the left at the thought of Donald Trump’s conservative policies turning America into some right wing dystopia. So much so that liberals have turned to using the fictional land of Gilead from Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale as a warning for the kind patriarchal doom that could befall our society.
The New York Times is apologizing for offending Latinos on Monday. The headline was "Readers Call a Travel Story on Los Angeles Dismissive of Latino Culture. They Have a Point." Lynda Richardson and Steve Reddicliffe, editors on the paper's Travel desk, wrote contritely: "Readers took issue with the reference to a historic street in Downtown Los Angeles that sells Jesus statuettes and piñatas as the source of 'all useless items in the world.' We now see how it came across as offensive."
During his show on Tuesday night, CBS host Stephen Colbert took it upon himself to sing Democratic Congressional Candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s praises. And he topped it all off by claiming Jesus was a socialist. Ocasio-Cortez is a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, and darling of the Democratic Party. It’s no wonder Colbert has been quick to support her, despite her being endorsed by the New York City chapter of the radical left-wing group, the Democratic Socialists of America.
AMC’s Preacher is no stranger to controversy obviously, but the worst of the worst usually comes from the original graphic novel. The fact that the show feels confident enough to bring it to screen says more about our society than anything I could type. The latest casualty this week is the Pope.
Hulu’s lascivious drama Harlots debuted its second season last week, and the show picked right back up where it left off last season with grotesque, violent and pornographic depictions of life for prostitutes in 1700s London. Wednesday’s “Episode 3,” the show decides to get more digs in at Christianity and one character’s fall from grace in a particularly offensive scene.
Season Two of Netflix’s original hit show GLOW premiered last Friday with ten episodes to binge on, and the season was thankfully tamer compared to season one. But that’s not saying much considering how season one was one big “f--- you to the Republican party,” and was filled with rampant sex, foul language, abortion and more.
Sex proves God Is a Woman, Ariana Grande and Elle suggest of her upcoming single. Not intelligence, talent, strength, or even love. Nope. It’s sex that empowers women. On Wednesday, Elle magazine announced its August cover star: singer Ariana Grande. Inside, deputy editor Katie Connor spoke with Grande on everything from politics to her upcoming single, God Is a Woman – which is, Connor revealed, about sex.
