NBC Compares Christians to Taliban

Twice in one week, senior pundits at NBC's news channel compared Christians to the Taliban---"our own far religious right" is "dreaming of a theocracy that would impose a particular brand of Christianity" on American society.

Within the week another NBC pundit was publicly criticizing Republicans who cling to "a narrow reading of their religious beliefs"---translated: Those who believe the Bible--- want to make their "religious beliefs into the law of the land," which would be a theocracy---Like Islamic countries that are run by the mullahs.

This is essentially their attempt to marginalize any and everyone who actually believes what the Bible says.

Russell Wilson, the quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, posted an interesting comment on social media the other day.

Be informed, not misled.

The bigotry of the press.

On August 14---last week, MSNBC host Joy Reid, speaking of the Taliban, tweeted that "our own far religious right" is "dreaming of a theocracy that would impose a particular brand of Christianity" on American society.

This is not the first time she has made these kinds of statements, nor is she the only one in the media making these suggestions about biblical Christians.

On August 18 (Wednesday), the lead story on MSNBC's website, written by Dan Obeidallah, picked up the same comparison by criticizing Republicans who cling to "a narrow reading of their religious beliefs," noting that they want to make their "religious beliefs into the law of the land."

In both cases, the NBC news channel is advocating that " biblical Christians are just like the Taliban--- against women's rights."

This, of course, is based on a lie. History proves, even to so-called progressives, that Christianity, as it spread across the world, elevated women in ways they had never elevated and valued in human history.

Reid accused Christians of wanting to "drive women out of the workforce and solely into childbirth, and control all politics."

If she and her leftist colleagues didn't have the influence they have through the media, no one would care what they think. I certainly wouldn't even bother to mention what they say or think. But they do have influence, unfortunately.

Her accusations are uninformed on the surface. If "Christian" Republicans are driving women out of the workforce into pregnancy, why is there a record number of Republican women---35--recently elected to Congress? And they all claim to be Christians.

Reid, NBC, and the Left are probably much more concerned about elected Christian women in Congress than the Taliban or women's rights being undermined.

Obeidallah cites three issues to prove that Christians are Taliban-like creatures: 

  1. Their opposition to abortion.
  2. Their opposition to reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
  3. Their opposition to the Paycheck Fairness Act.

To compare biblical Christianity to the Taliban is an extreme expression of anti-Christian bigotry.

It's obscene.

And it points out that many on the left hate Christianity more than they believe in women's rights.

If it's really about women's rights or choice, why are women who choose to stay at home to raise and educate their children scorned by the so-called elites?

And it reveals to what depth the media has sunk in their agenda to "remake" the culture. Promoting the killing of unwanted unborn children has become a religious experience for the press and the Left, including bowing to the ancient barbaric false god of Baal.

Apparently, anyone who rejects their "gospel" is apostate and should be taken out.

You tell me. Who are the barbarians?

As football season approaches.

The Seattle Seahawks are preparing for the kick-off of what they hope to be, a good and more "normal" season. Fans are ready as well.

Quarterback Russell Wilson is known for preparedness before each game. 

He is also prepared spiritually for what each day might bring.

He shared a powerful message with his social media followers this week, urging the millions of people who follow him to turn their hearts to God.

While standing in front of his locker, the 32-year-old said everyone can find peace with God.

Wilson says:

"Y'all ever go to bed, and you're tossing and turning and can't sleep? Your minds are running...all these different things whether big or small, whatever it may be, you can't find that peace and a lot of times we're trying to find the peace of me, the peace of you, the peace of us."

He continued:

"What the Scripture says in Philippians 4:7, is the peace of God---the peace of God---that transcends all understanding. That's the kind of peace that I want to have---the peace of God. I challenge us to try to search for that. And a lot of times what happens is that we run our own thoughts, our own ideas---we're constantly thinking about what we want to do, how we want to fix it, how we want to handle this, and  we want to do this."

Wilson says:

"How about God, how about Jesus? What would He do? I think the biggest thing we have to connect to is the Promise of God. Actually reading the Scripture and understanding what He wants for us and what He wants for me. I know for me personally, that's what I've been working on. Not trying to find my own peace, I want the peace of God."

So how does a superstar football player "work on" finding God's peace in his life?

Earlier this month a photograph of Wilson and his wife worshiping at their church went viral.

Clearly, he believes God's peace is found on his knees before Almighty God.

I hope and pray the folks at NBC and others will also discover that truth.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful.
