Posted on 04/01/2012 10:15:25 AM PDT by NYer
Every year during Holy Week the mainstream media conducts its own special ritual called the anti-Christian hit piece.
The formula goes like this. Find some author who says that everything that Christians believe and hold dear is a lie. Report all his/her assertions as if they are fact without bothering to address the mountains of scholarly work over centuries that contradict his/her primary assertions.
Some years it the "Real Jesus" or the "Real Mary" or the "Real Bible," but the purpose is always the same. Everything you believe is a lie. Happy Easter.
This year, CNN begins the annual dance with this Palm Sunday lede.
This year's entry is 4 myths of the Book of Revelation. I was intrigued by the title since the book of Revelation is often misunderstood, but alas and alack. Same ol', same ol'.
The bottom line?
Jesus doesn’t exist in the hearts and minds of the cnn newsrooms so what do we expect.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Obviously, the suggestion is made in sarcasm, because the last thing people from CNN (Ted Turner et al) would want anywhere near them would be a Bible. Oh, well. Ignorance is what it is.
Whe they start denying the Apocalypse, we must be very close.
Yes, it is that time of the year when we learn from “history channels” that everything we know about Jesus was fabricated by men who wanted to dominate women, make money, political power, yada yada yada.
I thought the Dead Sea scrolls had put much of this to rest, by verifying the accuracy of the Scriptures as we’ve had them passed down.
These roll out ever Christmas and Easter like clockwork. It’s perfectly transparent. These “stories” do not rise to the level of newsworthiness.
Last week it was the atheists in Washington D. C. saying that the Catholic Church and Jesus and the consecrated host must all be crumbled to the ground. My wording.
