RESTON, Va. — On Tuesday, religious leaders joined a growing wave of conservative leaders led by Media Research Center President and Founder Brent Bozell against The View’s Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin in light of the ABC show’s anti-Christian bigotry. Since The View’s vile remarks on February 13 against Vice President Mike Pence and Christians as “dangerous” and “mentally ill,” MRC supporters have made over 30,000 calls to ABC demanding the network apologize.
This past week, CNN and MSNBC were caught in a rather embarrassing folly exposing them for the dolts they are. As a result of information contained within the Robert Mueller Indictment, the public learned that Russian actors organized protests in both New York City and Charlotte, NC. As Rich Noyes of Newsbusters points out both CNN and MSNBC slavishly and unwittingly covered the Russian Orchestrated March in New York November 2016 with zeal.
Family Research Council just released a report on the American society’s ongoing hostility toward religion – and it’s remarkably troubling. According to FRC, American hostility toward religion increased by 76 percent just since 2014 – much thanks to left-leaning media’s poor representation of religious attitudes.
If abortion groups are trying to keep a low profile, they’re not doing a very good job of it. While Congress debates whether taxpayers should fund the likes of Planned Parenthood, the industry has spent the last six months trying to avoid headlines. That will be impossible now, thanks to a federal judge who’s threatening to send the man responsible for exposing the grisly business to jail.
Along with the fact that Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and his family had their cars and home completely flooded as part of Louisiana’s devastating floods, Perkins has been inundated by sites across the liberal media’s spectrum twisting his words on how and why natural disasters transpire.
Under the auspices of the Conservative Action Project (CAP), more than 40 conservative leaders sent a letter to David Rhodes, president of CBS News. The letter slammed Bob Schieffer for his recent bigoted and biased remarks and put forward conservative support for Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins.
As the Big Three networks were touting President Obama's claim that climate change affects the health of children – including that of his own daughter – on Wednesday, their morning and evening newscasts have yet to report on the politician's criticism of many Christians during a Tuesday prayer breakfast. Mr. Obama underlined that "on Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love. And I have to say that sometimes, when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned."
Former Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran, who alleges he was fired from his position solely because of his Christian beliefs, has filed a religious discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
That's not news at the Associated Press's national site, and it appears that the AP has not even carried a local story about Cochran's EEOC complaint — omissions that reek of a double standard.
Leftists have an extreme difficulty in differentiating between conservative Christians in the United States and Islamo-fascists in the Middle East. Somehow, letting your traditional religious views affect (infect?) our democracy is akin to beheadings and terrorism.
It's not surprising that this view would come stumbling out of GQ Washington correspondent Ana Marie Cox, one of the flightiest pundits on the left. There it came on Saturday morning's Up With Steve Kornacki on MSNBC. Somehow, the politicians and activists at the Value Voters Summit in Washington sound a lot like ISIS in Syria:
One of the big steps in winning a social or political battle these days is defining the terms to be used in the debate. Remember how an “unborn child” became an antiseptic “fetus” during the start of the abortion debate? And how left-wingers now call themselves “progressives” since George H. W. Bush turned “liberal” into a slur during his 1988 presidential campaign?
According to a Thursday post by Daily Beast Washington reporter Michelle Cottle, the latest example of this principle is the Family Research Council's use of the phrase “natural marriage” instead of “traditional marriage,” a move to change the terms of the debate because the conservative organization had been “getting its butt kicked.”
In 2007, Senator David Vitter was implicated in a prostitution ring involving the infamous “D.C. Madam.” Since then the senator apologized to his wife and family as well as the citizens of Louisiana, who, apparently, forgave him, as attested to their reelecting him to the U.S. Senate.
But that didn’t stop The Times-Picayune from publishing a story recently which selectively quoted from Family Research Council president Tony Perkins -- himself a former Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representatives -- in such a way as to suggest that the "far right" -- their words -- social conservative leader was opposed to Vitter's candidacy.
