On Friday evening, the NBC Nightly News took the time to devote an entire story to the case of a Michigan woman who survived a near-death experience which illustrates that doctors can sometimes make the wrong diagnosis and give up on comatose patients too soon.



Among the broadcast television networks, Univision stands out as the only one that provided a thorough report on Pope Francis’ most explicit statement to date on the incompatibility of a 'gay pride' lifestyle and the Catholic priesthood.



Meaning no disrespect to climate alarmists of the past half-century, who have been quite formidable in their doomsday warnings, the modern era has ushered in a new wave of scaremongers who threaten to eclipse their predecessors. This shouldn't discourage the original enviro-wackos of the 1970s, who hadn't accumulated sufficient empirical data to support their burgeoning secular religion. Give those people a break; how were they to know they'd have egg on their faces for predicting apocalyptic global cooling? We're much more advanced now, so it's not fair to judge them.



In light of Hollywood’s rabid progressive and anti-Christian agenda, it’s refreshing — well almost shocking even — to find a heartfelt and genuine Christmas message being shared by one of the industry’s leading men. Jurassic World star Chris Pratt brought another much-needed Christian and pro-life message to audiences, claiming that the love he has for his son helps him understand “the capacity for our Father in heaven to love us.”



Author Garrard Conley wants the film adaptation of his novel Boy Erased: The Memoir to inspire people to realize that controversial “Gay conversion therapy” is “torture.” The movie Boy Erased has been pushed by the media for Oscar nods, with outlets hoping it might be the next LGBTQ film in line to win major industry nominations and awards, after 2016’s Moonlight and last year’s Call Me By Your Name. The media of course has been running cover for the film and at the same time subtly bashing Christian parents for even hinting that it may be wrong for kids to embrace homosexuality.

 


Is the pope Catholic? Judging by the latest news out of Rome, this week the answer is yes. Predictably, it’s not playing well with his biggest fans in the secular media. Now that Francis has come out against active homosexual priests, media liberals are calling him a “homophobe” and lamenting that he’s not as “cool” as they once thought. Indeed, when lefties note Papa Francisco is “still Catholic,” you know it isn’t meant as a compliment.



To usher in the start of Hanukkah on Sunday, The New York Times published an op-ed by Jewish novelist Michael David Lukas arguing that the celebration of the religious holiday by urban, secular Jews is an example of gross “hypocrisy” because, as the subheading explains: “It’s a holiday that commemorates an ancient battle against assimilation. And it’s the one holiday that most assimilated Jews celebrate.”



In the three years since the mass shooting by ISIS supporters in San Bernardino, California, the liberal media have grown increasingly hostile to the gracious tradition of praying for shooting victims, suggesting prayer is an obstacle to their left-wing gun control agenda.



TBS’s comedy The Guestbook decided to take a jab at Christianity, specifically the existence of Jesus, in Tuesday’s episode, “Tonight You Become a Man.”



All three networks have failed to report on an alleged attempted hate crime against two men leaving a Jewish synagogue last Friday in Los Angeles. While another anti-semitic hate crime in Pittsburgh October 27 received mass coverage, the alleged suspect’s identity in this recent attack may be one reason why it hasn’t received any coverage on the major networks thus far.



Interviewing Women's March head Teresa Shook, who has called for her co-chairs including Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory to resign over issues of anti-Semitism and homophobia, CNN's Alisyn Camerota pointed to a statement that Sarsour and her fellow co-chairs put out. Camerota challenges Shook, saying, "they sound contrite. They're apologizing. They want to continue to learn. Why can't they stay on?"



It’s a sneaky tactic that the left uses in order discredit a portion of sensible individuals who disagree with their politics: push the narrative that those folks are part of a divisive right-wing mob. Conservative Catholics in this day and age are susceptible to this, even being labeled “alt-right” because they don’t agree with homosexual lifestyles.
