NYT Smears Christians on Easter: ‘Would Vote Against Jesus Himself...'

April 1st, 2018 3:53 PM
Christians who opened the New York Times on Easter Sunday were rewarded with a poke in the eye from the front page of the Sunday Review. Most offensive, the smearing subhead to leftist writer Amy Sullivan’s “Trump’s Christian Soldiers": "Most white evangelicals would vote against Jesus himself if he ran as a Democrat.”

NYT Mocks Trump-Worshipping Evangelicals With His Visage on Ornament

December 18th, 2017 9:09 AM
The front of the New York Times Sunday Review gifted readers with condescension toward both conservative Christians and Fox News watchers from contributing religion writer Amy Sullivan: “A Very Merry War on Christmas.” The text box: “Conservative media spawns a new religious worldview: ‘Fox evangelicalism.’” Not only did the paper tar all evangelicals with a fringe idea of Trump as holy, it threw…

LA Times: 'Obama Has Been a Regular Church-goer For Decades

December 8th, 2011 9:18 PM
Over at PJ Media's Tatler section, Roger Simon caught Alana Semuels at the Los Angeles Times in what has to be a lead candidate for the NOn-Eric Holder howler of the day. In running down the degree of religious seriousness of a few more recent presidents in an article portraying GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's heavy involvement with Mormonism, Semuels wrote (bold is mine):

Shorter Amy Sullivan: Religious Conservatives Believe They Have a Righ

November 4th, 2011 5:24 PM
“[S]ocial conservatives believe that efforts to protect gays from assault, discrimination or bullying impinge on their religious freedom to express and act on their belief that homosexuality is an abomination. That’s stating it harshly, but it is the underlying belief,” Time religion reporter Amy Sullivan huffed in a November 4 Swampland blog post on the magazine’s website. “[T]he Michigan…

Time's Sullivan: 'Did Austerity Politics Kill Compassionate Conservati

August 5th, 2011 5:02 PM
While the liberal media scoffed at George W. Bush's "compassionate conservatism" in 1999 and 2000 as gimmicky and insufficient compared to traditional big government social welfare spending binges, they're starting to miss it now. Just ask Time's Amy Sullivan:

Time's Sullivan Cites Left-wing 'Religious Group' to Insist Catholic R

June 6th, 2011 3:55 PM
"I am fairly certain that when Paul Ryan first decided to publicly share his admiration of Ayn Rand, he could not have imagined it would lead to him speed-walking to his SUV to avoid a young Catholic trying to give him a Bible and telling him to pay more attention to the Gospel of Luke," Time's Amy Sullivan snarked in a June 3 Swampland blog post.  

Time's Amy Sullivan: Rev. Wallace Charles Smith Is No Jeremiah Wright

April 29th, 2011 6:17 PM
The pastor who preached the Easter sermon that Barack Obama heard this past Sunday is not another Jeremiah Wright, Time's Amy Sullivan insists in an April 29 blog "Swampland" blog post entitled "Conservatives Go After Another Obama Pastor." Sullivan was responding to the complaints of conservative talkers Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, who highlighted some controversial remarks Smith made to…

Time Religion Reporter Complains Conservatives Hypocritical on Taxpaye

April 11th, 2011 11:02 AM
On Friday afternoon, Time magazine religion reporter Amy Sullivan briefly blogged her complaint about what she sees as hypocrisy from conservatives who oppose federal monies for Planned Parenthood but support federal support for faith-based initiatives. "Money is Fungible," blared her April 8 Swampland headline. Well, "[o]bviously," she agreed, then carped that:

Time's Sullivan Promotes 'Gay-affirming' Preacher Jay Bakker

March 15th, 2011 12:14 PM
Rebellious son of infamous 1980s televangelists returns (sort of) to the faith of his parents, pastors a church, but now takes a decidedly liberal tack on the Christian faith. That's certainly a compelling story for a secular magazine to cover, especially in this Lenten season. But with her March 15-published  interview with Jay Bakker, a self-styled "evangelical punk preacher," Time…

Name That Party: Erratic Rep. David Wu's Party Registration Unnoted by

February 23rd, 2011 10:55 AM
When a sitting U.S. congressman's behavior is so erratic and inexplicable that his own staffers want him to get psychiatric care and some of them quit in horror upon his reelection, it's a legitimate news story for national media coverage regardless of the political party of the person involved. Of course, if the congressman were a Republican, it's difficult to imagine his political…

Time's Sullivan Corrects Colleague But Echoes Fear of Violence Against

February 16th, 2011 10:38 AM
Yesterday I rebuked Time's Jay Newton-Small for falsely characterizing a bill before South Dakota's state legislature that would make it legal to use lethal force against a person attempting to kill an unborn child in the commission of a crime. "South Dakota is apparently considering legalizing the murder of doctors who perform abortions," Newton-Small complained. Later yesterday afternoon…

Media Bash Beck for Not Being Evangelical After Years of Bashing Evang

August 31st, 2010 5:48 PM
The editors of the mainstream media must think we all have very short memories. Their latest schtick is to smear conservative talk show host Glenn Beck as a creepy Mormon who has no business influencing evangelicals. Aside from the disgusting hypocrisy of Mormon-baiting one minute and then bashing Islamophobia the next, these news outlets are also hoping you've forgotten about their recent…

Time's Sullivan Defends Obama's Christianity, Attacks Conservatives fo

August 19th, 2010 11:35 AM
The number of Americans from all kinds of demographics who are unsure that President Obama is a Christian have grown since he's been in office. For instance, "fewer than half of Democrats (46%) know Obama is a Christian, down from 55% in March 2009. Barely four-in-ten African-Americans say he's a Christian, down from 56% last year," an exasperated Amy Sullivan noted in an August 19 Swampland…

Time's Sullivan: Why Does Glenn Beck Hate Jesus

March 15th, 2010 5:46 PM
"Why Does Glenn Beck Hate Jesus?" asked Time's Amy Sullivan in a Sunday March 14 Swampland blog post:When Glenn Beck told listeners of his radio show on March 2 that they should "run as fast as you can" from any church that preached "social or economic justice" because those were code words for Communism and Nazism, he probably thought he was tweaking a few crunchy religious liberals who didn…
