Excerpt from Bill O’Reilly – Why Demonize Christianity?

 

“The … reason is purely political. The left well understands that Christian opposition to things like abortion, gay marriage, and drug legalization makes those liberal causes more difficult to achieve. Thus, anything that diminishes Christianity is fair game to be promoted. Every newsworthy sin committed by a Christian is highlighted with a sneering reference to hypocrisy. Any whiff of Christian intolerance is celebrated in the press.”

CrossDemonizing Christianity
…why are the New York Times and some other liberal media playing the “Christian extremist” card?
The front page headline in the New York Times last Monday was stunning: “AS HORRORS EMERGE,NORWAY CHARGES CHRISTIAN EXTREMIST.”That would be Anders Behring Brevik, the 32-year-old mass murderer who took at least 76 innocent lives apparently because he doesn’t like Muslims living in Europe.But why would the Times brand Brevik as a Christian? The killer is not attached to any church, has no history of Christian activity, has openly criticized the Protestant philosophy, and has committed acts counter to all Christian teaching……The second reason is purely political. The left well understands that Christian opposition to things like abortion, gay marriage, and drug legalization makes those liberal causes more difficult to achieve. Thus, anything that diminishes Christianity is fair game to be promoted. Every newsworthy sin committed by a Christian is highlighted with a sneering reference to hypocrisy. Any whiff of Christian intolerance is celebrated in the press.Continue reading this column on BillOReilly.com…http://www.billoreilly.com/newslettercolumn?pid=33094
