Skip to comments.NewsReal Sunday: “Reverend” Billy Talen Exploits God to Further Leftist Agenda
Posted on 11/29/2009 5:15:18 AM PST by Michael van der Galien
Whats in a name? For decades the Left has attacked the Religious Right for any mention of one name in particular Jesus Christ. Evangelical conservatives have been told it was wrong to mention Bible verses or the Savior when debating issues of law or politics. Lately it has become clear that the no-Jesus rule only applies to one side of the political spectrum.
Most readers of NewsReal or viewers of cable news have probably noticed that Jesus name is being thrown out there for everything from supporting President Barack Obama, to ending capitalism, to promoting health care reform. Not surprisingly, many on the Left will simultaneously say that it is wrong to use Jesus in opposition to government-funded abortion in health care, and then respond that what Jesus really wants is socialized medicine.
This week, CNN American Morning took Jesus propoganda a step further by doing an interview with Reverend Billy Talen. Talen is a left-wing activist who pretends to be an ordained minister to attack consumerism and big business. He has been arrested many times for using illegal tactics in his attempts to bring down big stores like Disney and Wal-Mart. CNN does Talen a favor by ignoring the fact the man is a wing-nut and treating him like a voice of reason.
Where’s Garner Ted Armstrong when you need him?
I have this deal with CNN........
I never watch them
They don’t bother me.
(Exo 20:7) “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.”
This includes invoking the authority of Jesus and the Bible for ideology He does not support, such as promoting homosexuality. etc. Liberal Christianity seeks to make Jesus into the image of morally corruptible man.
