Some of you have been reading on Bill Maher’s treatment of anything Christian (or Islamic, for that matter, to his credit.) That’s old news….
But did you hear John Stossel call O’Reilly “a ten foot tall cry baby” for suggesting Christians are under any kind of attack…or will be…in America. I’ve never been a fan of Stossel’s…ever. I have always seen emptiness behind his eyes and found out why Monday night when I heard that interview. It’s something I see only in people of no faith; it’s a very odd thing.
Are Christians making too much of the attacks on bakeries and florists for not doing gay weddings in the name of the Bible? Are Christian kids asked to do too much when they have to dress like Muslims or write about Islam or attend a mosque for a week per their public school teachers’ curriculum? Are stores going overboard when they tell their employees not to say “Merry Christmas” to customers? Isn’t there something odd in that when 99% of the folks shopping at Christmas are Christians shopping for…well…Christmas presents? You all could go on and on here ….right?
I’d have no problem with a religion curriculum covering ALL religions for a day or a class period, would you? But the muslim instances haven’t seemed to do that. And nothing has been said about the cruelty to Muslim women, etc., in the texts or curriculum…just lots of awe for the ‘great world religion’.
What about Christianity? The last time I looked, IT was THE WORLD’S GREAT RELIGION…but I don’t see that much anymore. Huff Post has an anti-Christian article nearly every day (yesterday’s was how much Christians could learn from Buddhism), and other sites highlight stories like that all the time. One article on Stossel and O’Reilly’s interview said “Stossel DESTROYED O’Reilly!” “destroyed?”
I see such dissent across the globe that I’m starting to wonder where it will go. And, in correlation to that slow dissent, I could do a graph showing that and how our culture and times have reflected it…also on the slow decline……….coincidence?
What do you think’s going on? Is Stossel right? Is O’Reilly right?
