November 27th, 2017 3:23 PM
SMILF continues its attack on Christianity in the November 27 episode "Deep-Dish Pizza & a Shot of Holy Water," but this particular episode of the Showtime series takes it to another level when it's suggested, less than a month before Christmas, that the Virgin Mary's Immaculate Conception of Jesus Christ was rape.

Season two of the 1970s cartoon, F is for Family, was released Tuesday, May 30 on Netflix and, while it had its funny moments and nostalgic memories, especially for this child of the '70s, it also had plenty of horrifically offensive moments for Christians.

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,…

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 Jesus's…

WashPost's Miller Sad That Nuns No Longer Escape the 'Oppression of Ma

April 30th, 2012 8:33 AM
In Saturday’s Washington Post, religion columnist Lisa Miller brought her usual radical feminism to the table insisting Mary be “heard” as the Vatican insisted that American nuns and sisters actually act like they belong to the Catholic Church.
