Media coverage ping!
This Lutheran Satire video gives a pretty accurate depiction of the typical member of the liberal media when it comes to their typical coverage of the Roman Catholic Church-
The Media conceive of Religion as just another Kiwanis Club or General Motors with a board of Directors who make choices based on what they think will work in this situation and that, what will get the most customers and bring in the most money. They are incapable of conceiving of Truth nor do they understand people or organizations who keep Truth and God as their be-all and end-all.<p?To the media, as to all liberals and the Left, God is an excuse to organize and to wield power.God to a leftist who thinks more deeply(relatively, of course) is Mankind and the Left is that god’s brain.
... we would have done better than Barack Obama.
Great article, Mollie. I hope some of the religion reporters read it. I used to engage in endless arguments with religion writers at the Washington Post about their narrow and biased approach and could never penetrate the cloud of delusion under which they operate.
Excellent article. That “news” from atheist reporters and anti-Catholics is taken seriously is absurd. It’s been a feeding frenzy of every Catholic fault over the last thousand years.
It is quite amusing to watch the unsaved world go into a fit of the vapors because the Catholic church insists that its Pope be a Christian.
