'Daily Show' Reporter Mocks 'Adorable Bigots' Against Gay Marriage
May 5th, 2015 5:31 PM
In an effort to shame protesters who believe true marriage is between one man and one woman, Jessica Williams of Comedy Central's The Daily Show mingled with people she believes are on the “Wrong Side of History” while pretending to be crying since this might be her last chance to say goodbye to the “Hate Class of 2015.”
The segment was introduced by outgoing host Jon…

Sunday night's airing of Killing Jesus -- the three-hour event based on the book of the same name by Fox News Channel anchor Bill O'Reilly and co-writer Martin Dugard -- was watched by more than 3.7 million people, a new record for the National Geographic Channel.

Colbert 'Agrees' With GOP Official Who Believes Obama Is Possessed
November 13th, 2014 6:43 PM
“Better late than never” is apparently the new motto of Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central's faux conservative, who said on Wednesday night's edition of The Colbert Report that one new member of the Republican “farm team” has claimed that Barack Obama is allegedly possessed by a demon even though he performed an exorcism to try and "drive out the evil spirit.…
ABC Continues Pushing ‘Astonishing’ Claim That Jesus Married With Kids
November 12th, 2014 8:51 PM
On Wednesday night, ABC News continued to promote a new book with the “astonishing” claim that Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and had two children together with a flattering one-and-a-half minute segment on ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir.
Anchor David Muir began by stating that it “has sparked a fiery debate among the faithful”…
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,…
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…
Here We Go Again: MSNBC's Harris-Perry Uses Virgin Mary to Push Libera
November 27th, 2012 5:33 PM
Ah, the holiday season. It's that time of year when the liberal media loves to use Jesus and the Virgin Mary to push liberal talking points if not outright push the envelope. So while NPR is busy promoting a new novel that presents the Virgin Mary as a skeptic who believes her son Jesus was a fraud, MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry went a safer but equally trite route, using the story of…
Time Contributor Christakis: WWJD? Tax the Rich Anywhere from 50 to
August 15th, 2012 11:59 AM
Jesus Christ would favor a tax rate as little as 50 percent and as high as 100 percent. So really, President Obama's preferred tax rates are a bargain. That's one of the big "idea" of Erika Christakis's August 14 Time magazine Ideas blog post, "Is Paul Ryan's Budget 'Un-Christian'?"
Christakis has a master's in education but apparently hasn'…
MSNBC's Bashir, a Professing Christian, Throws Bible Under the Bus in
May 11th, 2012 5:20 PM
MSNBC's Martin Bashir -- who attends a New York City church pastored by a conservative minister who signed the pro-traditional marriage Manhattan Declaration -- yesterday maligned the Holy Bible in an attempt to defend President Obama from the charge that his support of same-sex marriage contradicts biblical teaching on matrimony.
The incident came in an interview with Dr. Robert Jeffress…
WashPost 'On Faith' Marks Tax Day with 'Bible Lesson' From Liberal The
April 16th, 2012 1:05 PM
April 15, Tax Day, fell on a Sunday this year. American taxpayers get a two-day reprieve on the deadline this year thanks to Monday being a public holiday in the District of Columbia. But all the same, it was the perfect occasion for the Washington Post's On Faith feature to give readers a liberal homily on taxes.
Liberal theologian Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite had the honors. "There…
