Wednesday night, Vice President Mike Pence became a target of liberals in the media, after President Trump announced he would be in charge of leading the U.S. response to the coronavirus crisis. Cable news pundits sneered that the Christian Pence was “anti-science” while late night hosts like ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel also took shots at Pence’s faith.
As believers gear up for Lent, Democratic primary candidates see Ash Wednesday as an opportunity to connect with Christian, and specifically Catholic, voters, according to reports.
Here’s the shocking revelation of the latest episode of The New Pope: the Pope is not a good person. Even though the previous season of The Young Pope made that pretty clear, the HBO series still had to hammer home that unpleasant fact. Now we’re contending with an “antichrist” young Pope along with an “irresponsible,” “conceited,” drug addicted new Pope. The only winners here are those who don't watch the show.
At this point, there’s little that HBO’s The New Pope can do to shock audiences anymore. It’s already ridiculed the Church, propped up needless sex, and "upgraded" the Bible. Comparing “whores” to saints or revealing pedophilia in the high ranks is almost no big deal. And that’s what makes the series worse.
Hippie parents Alicia (Tika Sumpter) and Paul Johnson (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) learn to get outside of their comfort zones in the February 11 Valentine's Day episode of ABC's Mixish. In the show, which takes place in the 1980s, Alicia has to grow comfortable with young Rainbow (Arica Himmel) going on a date with Bryce.
This was bound to happen eventually. The latest episode of HBO’s The New Pope now has the audacity to suggest “upgrading” the Bible and the Church to include gay marriage. Somehow, I don’t think the series that’s bashed the Church and called prostitution a “miracle” has any right to lecture Christians.
NPR's badly named evening newscast All Things Considered recently devoted two eight-minute segments to anchor Audie Cornish soliciting the radical thoughts of Muslim activists in Dearborn, Michigan. In the first, a man named Iltefat Hamzavi fried up this hate nugget: "I've been at many dinner tables where somebody voted for Trump. And you're like, that's like chickens voting for Chick-fil-A." In the second, they lamented "the media" being unfair to Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
In a late Thursday, early Friday edition of Cuomo Prime Time, liberal CNN contributors Angela Rye and April Ryan both spewed bile toward conservatives as Rye declared that President Donald Trump's judicial nominees "may be pro-life, but they want to kill off everyone else," and Ryan condemned Rush Limbaugh as a "bigot" and "racist" because he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
CNN host Chris Cuomo was unhinged late Thursday night into Friday while arguing with conservative contributor Scott Jennings about President Trump’s comments post-acquittal. Cuomo self-righteously lectured that conservative Christians were hypocrites for using abortion as a litmus test for political candidates when Trump didn’t show the faithful any respect, even defending Pete Buttigieg's radical abortion views.
CNN’s newest White House Correspondent John Harwood seems to be trying to outdo Jim Acosta with his sanctimonious takes on President Trump. On CNN Newsroom Thursday Harwood defended Mitt Romney and Nancy Pelosi as people of “deep faith” who were acting out of their conviction of “right and wrong” to impeach the president, which was something that faithless and corrupt Trump had no understanding of.
Not satisfied with simply overtaking its predecessor season, HBO’s The New Pope now seems determined to stuff as many offensive materials in a single hour. Within the latest hour alone, we have Marilyn Manson advising the Pope, rebellious nuns asking for equal rights, homosexual priests sleeping around, and even more breasts. Never before has a show about the Church so desperately needed Jesus.
One of the most revealing things about the leftist mindset is the usual leftist's lack of self-awareness about his own intolerance, hatefulness and inclusiveness — unless you distort all those terms to whitewash the reality. I will never forget reading (and writing about) the unfortunate experience of Professor Janice Price, an education instructor at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana.
