LA Times Eulogizes Agnostic 'Debunker of [Biblical] Claims'

September 23rd, 2014 5:00 PM
In her obituary for ordained minister-turned-agnostic Gerald A. Larue, Los Angeles Times writer Elaine Woo insisted that the 98-year-old founding president of the Hemlock Society had been "a debunker of claims such as Lazarus rising from the dead."  But it seems Ms. Woo is confusing offering a skeptic's alternative viewpoint for discrediting the claims of the Bible.

'On Faith' Page Celebrates Easter By Highlighting 'Christians' Who Den

April 19th, 2014 11:52 PM
In his first epistle to the Corinthians, St. Paul made it perfectly clear that a belief in the bodily resurrection of Christ as the sine qua non of Christianity. If Christ was not raised from the dead, that the whole of the Christian faith is an utter sham, the apostolic witness fraudulent, the basis of Christian hope nonexistent, and the poor saps who go on attempting to live a life guided by…

In Easter Message, MSNBC's Sharpton Lauds Crucifixion, Resurrection of

April 18th, 2014 12:36 PM
Al Sharpton entered truly ludicrous territory during an appearance Wednesday on Tom Joyner’s radio show. While talking about the meaning of Easter, the Baptist minister and MSNBC host dragged President Obama into the mix: "As I looked at President Obama at our convention last Friday, where all he took he’s been able to rise politically again, I’m not comparing him to…

Matt Lauer Aghast at Bill O'Reilly Wanting Schools to Teach Historical

April 10th, 2014 11:09 AM
In an interview with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly on Thursday's NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer fretted over the Killing Jesus author wanting the historical life of Christ to be taught in schools: "[In] public schools these days, you go sit in one of those classes and you're surrounded by kids of four or five, six different faiths. Why should they sit there and listen to the story…

WashPost Again Hails Muslim Author's Jesus the 'Zealot' Book

December 28th, 2013 9:35 AM
Saturday’s Washington Post once again promoted the Muslim author Reza Aslan’s history-mangling Jesus book “Zealot,” this time by reproducing a top-ten “most intriguing religion books” list from Religion News Service. Not every selection was a liberal journalist's pick to click, but these books were laid out with large, color images of the covers. John…

Daily Beast Contributor: Conservatives Want 'Christ Out of Christmas

December 17th, 2013 3:38 PM
Tis the season for liberals to bash conservatives as miserly Scrooges or, worse, as anti-Jesus, all because they endorse cutting back social welfare programs. In his December 17 post, "It’s Conservatives Who Really Want Christ Out of Christmas," Daily Beast contributor Dean Obeidallah attacked what he insists is, "the glaring hypocrisy of the right" (emphases mine):

Chuck Norris Column: American Hostages, My Granddaughters, and the Hop

December 16th, 2013 7:03 PM
I'm interrupting my series on Common Core State Standards for public schools to join the appeal to Iran and North Korea for the release of American hostages like imprisoned American pastor Saeed Abedini and missionary Kenneth Bae. And I'm also calling upon President Obama and Congress to step up their action, stand for religious freedom and fight for the release of these godly men,…

Reza Aslan: Megyn Kelly Thinks Christ Is White, But He Looks Like Me

December 13th, 2013 6:43 AM
The Washington Post's habit of promoting Muslim author Reza Aslan and his lame book about how Jesus was a political messiah resurfaced on Thursday. On the Post's "WorldViews" blog, Max Fisher interviewed Aslan on the occasion of Megyn Kelly's statement on her Fox show that "Jesus was a white man, too. It's like we have, he's a historical figure. That's a…

WashPost Critic: Christians Threaten the Lives of Authors Casting Jesu

August 27th, 2013 11:51 AM
The Washington Post is promoting Amazon.com today – a new series of “trim biographies” called “Icons.” The list of subjects includes Stalin and Hemingway, Poe and Van Gogh. The Post is also bashing Fox News again today. The first “Icon” biography is about Jesus Christ. Post book reviewer Ron Charles surely caused a few coffee spews by suggesting that…

Video: NB's Bozell Defends FNC's Green, Assails Reza Aslan for Mislead

July 31st, 2013 4:40 PM
Author Reza Aslan was disingenuous about his biases in his weekend interview with Fox News Channel's Lauren Green, NewsBusters publisher and Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell told FNC's Shannon Bream on the July 31 edition of America Live. Aslan, as a Muslim, denies the divinity of Christ, and should have been straightforward about how his religious beliefs would necessarily…

Rewriting the Bible: The Gospel According to Liberals

March 13th, 2013 1:45 PM
When liberals and their media allies have an agenda to push, they’ll use any tool at hand. The left often rails against the presence of religion in civic life, mocking conservative Christians as “Taliban” agitating for theocracy. But other times, they find faith to be a handy weapon to bludgeon conservatives. And they’ll go so far as to reinterpret and rewrite the Bible…

WashPost Religion Reporter Miller Lectures Christians to be Anti-Gun R

January 28th, 2013 1:10 PM
The Washington Post's religion writers have been hard at work of late to boost the religious left's push for more stringent gun control legislation. On Thursday, for example, Post religion writer Michelle Boorstein treated readers of the paper's Metro section with a puffy front-page item celebrating the pulpit-pounding for gun control from the likes of the dean of the Episcopal…

Religion Writer Forwards New Feminist Complaint: We Never See Depictio

December 11th, 2012 6:45 PM
As I argued yesterday, the Advent season is exploited every year by the liberal media to tweak faithful Christians, using the holidays as a hook for liberal political and religious themes or to advance ancient heresies. Ditto with the Lenten season. Well, the latest example comes from David Gibson of the Religion News Service, who has picked up on a new complaint from a feminist scholar,…

Karen Long Sings Praises of Colm Toibin's 'Testament of Mary

December 10th, 2012 4:57 PM
As we at NewsBusters have noticed, Advent and Lent seem to be the times of year that the liberal secular media loves to tweak devout Christians with attacks on historic, orthodox Christian teaching. The latest example is the media being abuzz over Irish playwright and novelist Colm Toibin's "The Testament of Mary." The "silent, obedient, observant" Mary of Scripture…
