My first reaction upon hearing that hundreds of leaders in the Southern Baptist church had sexually abused as many as 700 people in 400 churches, including victims as young as 3, was “how could they?” It was the same reaction I had when news of predatory priests in the Roman Catholic Church, and the cover-up that followed the sexual abuse allegations, surfaced. I have belonged to Southern Baptist churches in the past, so I know something about their proud “independent” status
Seeking to deflect criticism of Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar for her history of anti-Semitic remarks, Morning Joe swung into whataboutism mode today. Joe Scarborough flagrantly mischaracterized a tweet by GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy prior to the midterms. Scarborough twice claimed that McCarthy had said: "don't let Jews buy the election."
After Vice President Pence called on Rep. Ilhan Omar to be punished for her anti-Semitic remarks, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell used the blowback against the Democrat to complain about anti-Muslim discrimination. The journalist grilled Pence Wednesday afternoon, while he was in Warsaw, Poland attending a U.S. sponsored summit on the Middle East.
If the approximately 5,892,643 other attempts by Hollywood to mock and criticize God, TBS’s new comedy Miracle Workers has just given us one more vehicle that does just that. Though there is no mention of Jesus yet, the Christian/Jewish God of The Bible is definitely the target, according to a Vanity Fair article titled, “How Miracle Workers Turns Heaven into a Corporate Hell.”
Proud Christian Hollywood superstar Chris Pratt is finally hitting back at LGBTQ actress Ellen Page for attacking his faith.
The media spent Tuesday morning rushing to Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s aid, after she was criticized from both parties for making an anti-Semitic comment on Twitter, (not her first.) Politico first ran a story praising Omar as a “superstar villain” for the right, while MSNBC took that headline and ran a segment on MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin, trying to spin the Democrat scandal as a problem for Republicans.
Since the midterm elections, the liberal media have been singing the praises of Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar for being one of the first Muslim women in Congress. That praise came despite Omar’s long history of trafficking in staunch anti-Semitism. On Monday, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had no choice but to acknowledge her hate, but only after recent tweets from Omar forced the Democratic Party leadership to denounce her.
President Trump spoke about important topics to our country like abortion, adoption and religious liberty at the National Prayer Breakfast, but his critics instead focused on a word slipup to bash and mock him on Thursday.
As we’re treated to another week of The Big Bang Theory, it’s almost a certainty that creator Chuck Lorre will grace us with another vanity card aimed at Donald Trump, or a member of his administration. Following the February 7 episode, “The Donation Oscillation,” and its credits, the vanity card targeted White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, as well as her prayer life and her looks.
When The Washington Post covers religion, the articles mainly serve as reminders of the paper’s almost otherworldly ignorance of the topic, leavened by the occasional inspirational column about social justice rummage sales from the lesbian pastor of The Eternal Woke Church and Vegan Coffee Bar. The original headline was “At the National Prayer Breakfast, Trump likely to play on white evangelicals’ fears.”
After The Handmaid’s Tale's 2017 Super Bowl commercial was compared to "Trump's America," Hulu came back this year with an even more obvious attack on President Ronald Reagan.
During Wednesday’s edition of Erin Burnett OutFront, the eponymous host and her panel reacted to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders’s declaration that God “wanted Donald Trump to become President” during an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network. Burnett seemed to think that God playing a role in the electoral politics of the United States posed a direct threat to democracy.
