Well this is disturbing. Major book retailers are encouraging kids to summon their own personal devils this Christmas. All they have to do is convince their loving parents to gift them the next best kids' book, A Children’s Book of Demons, sure to be a hit in kindergarten classrooms nationwide.
We all know the saying, “Do as I say, not as I do.” And when it comes to the left’s virtue signaling with “tolerance,” we also know well that their tolerance only extends to those who agree with their politics and policies. That couldn’t have been more clear on Monday night’s episode of The CW’s teen drama All American, which featured a song that preached tolerance for gays being “who they are” while subtly showing disdain for God and the Bible.
Appearing as a guest on Morning Joe Wednesday, liberal Rev. Jim Wallis discussed his book Christ in Crisis: Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus. Not surprisingly, it did not take long for Wallis to begin trashing President Trump and white evangelical Christians. Another member of the panel, the incendiary Al Sharpton, accused white evangelicals of “submitting to white nationalism and Trump,” a point that Wallis seemed to agree with.
Lesson for social conservatives: put not your trust in princes, nor in rap stars turned Christian. And especially not in chicken sandwiches. Unless you’re hungry.
The CBS drama God Friended Me tends to push a more “progressive” vision of Christianity in which those who hold to traditional biblical views, particularly regarding sexual mores, are portrayed as the bad guys. In a previous episode, the Reverend Finer (Joe Morton) , father of the main character, lost leadership of his Episcopalian church after he said he saw “God” in his daughter’s homosexual journey. As NewsBusters pointed out after that episode, the scriptwriters clearly did not know that the Episcopalian church is one of the most "progressive" churches in the country on matters of homosexuality.
Elijah and Sydney Strait took a Catholic parish to court on Monday’s episode of Bluff City Law. But surprisingly for the liberal legal drama, this was one battle the pair didn’t win.
Their court case revolved around a devout Catholic teacher Mrs. Ava Fulham who struggled to conceive and carry pregnancies to term. After multiple miscarriages, she and her husband chose to use in vitro fertilization, a procedure that is considered wrong in all circumstances by Catholic doctrine.
Fox’s Empire seems to really dislike religious pro-life people. Sure, plenty of shows have introduced an abortion plot recently, but Empire is the only show to continue this plot for multiple episodes. In fact, this may be the worst take the season has done since it seems to revel in “denouncing the church.”
On Monday, CNN spent nine minutes and 49 seconds reveling in Donald Trump Jr. being heckled by a rabid, shouting crew from the alt-right and fans of Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes during a Turning Point USA event promoting his book Triggered. Therefore, CNN have spent nine minutes and 49 seconds more on people protesting Trump Jr. than calling out ABC for their decision to spike reporting about predator Jeffrey Epstein.
As far as I can tell from a reading of history, while some presidents were friends of clergy, who sometimes advised them, to my knowledge, none hired them as staff members. Until the presidency of Richard Nixon. It was during Nixon's administration that Charles Colson began mobilizing the evangelical community to support the president's policies and programs, seeing evangelicals as just another special interest group, like organized labor has been for Democrats.
The New York Times burnished its reputation for hostility toward religion with a crass tweet that denigrated the American family of Mormons, massacred by a drug cartel in Mexico, as they were traveling in an SUV caravan on Monday. Six children and three women were killed. The Times tweeted the story out on Tuesday afternoon with negative connotations of the women and children victims:
If there’s one thing Kanye West shouldn’t be worried about, it’s the elitist music critics who claim his most recent album is a bust. The hip hop artist and fashion-designer has just topped the official Billboard Music “Artist 100” Chart for the second time thanks to the influence of his recently-released Jesus Is King hip hop/Gospel album.
As we once again near the Christmas season, the last thing we need is yet another show dragging Christianity, religion, or God in general. Sadly, HBO gives us a show that does all three in its latest series His Dark Materials. Based on the books by noted atheist Philip Pullman, this latest adaptation continues the story’s usual controversy of despising Christianity and the Church and making them the bad guys.
