Christians Vilified in Disgusting Liberal Paper

Christians have been persecuted in this country long enough. A major left leaning newspaper publication took it to another level.

In the minds of many at the Washington Post, if you believe in and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, then you shouldn’t be qualified to run for public office.

According to Casey Chalk at The Federalist, a man named Robert R. Reilly has been nominated for the position of director at Voice of America. For all intents and purposes, he’s the right man for the job. As Chalk notes, Reilly was director from 2001 to 2002 and produced a weekly talk show there as well.

However, the WaPo editorial board, media columnist Margeret Sullivan, and former VOA director Amanda Bennett have released a series of columns denouncing Reilly, calling him “dangerous” and “extreme” simply on the basis of his Christian beliefs. The specific reason is due to Reilly’s writings on the Catholic teachings about homosexuality:

In a Dec. 11 op-ed for the Washington Post, Bennett labeled Reilly’s beliefs on homosexuality “extreme.” She cited Reilly’s 2014 book, “Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior Is Changing Everything,” as evidence. Bennett says the book describes “homosexual acts as ‘habitual moral failure’ and lament[s] the ‘legitimization of homosexual behavior.’” The Washington Post editorial board similarly maligned Reilly for his “tirade against the LGBTQ community.”

Reilly, a Catholic himself, subscribes to the Catholic teachings on homosexuality as not only a sin but an act that goes against nature for separating the act from the gift of life.

This is a standard belief across the board for those of the Catholic faith. It should be noted that the Catholic faith does not require the faithful to despise those who are gay, as Jesus commands us to love everyone while rejecting sin, but that nuance is purposefully lost on those with a political agenda.

Still, WaPo has effectively played its hand and has made it clear that it believes Christians shouldn’t be able to hold public office due to their beliefs about homosexuality. What’s more, WaPo has proved it has a shallow understanding of the world around it and will cast out details and nuance in order to arrive at ridiculous conclusions about how an individual actually feels about a group.

As Chalk notes, it’s apparent that WaPo and Bennet hardly did any real research into Reilly. They likely just read the titles of his books, read an Amazon review, and passed judgment:

What is more plausible is that Bennett, Sullivan, and the Washington Post don’t really know much of anything about what Reilly thinks about homosexuality or Islam because they haven’t bothered to read more than an Amazon page or a book jacket cover.
This points to two broader problems, one of which is shameful, the other deeply concerning. The first is that the left is largely ignorant of intellectual conservatism.

Not only does the left have difficulty understanding conservatives and right-leaning Christians, but it regularly demonizes and targets them. Before Reilly was Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, Mike Pence, and many others.

It begs the question of who the real bigots in the room are. Clearly, WaPo believes that holding Christian beliefs automatically disqualifies you from holding office.

Oddly, they didn’t give this kind of rejection to “devout Catholic” Joe Biden.

  1. It’s very sad to see just how EVIL THE LEFTISTS PROGRESSIVE DEMON:RATS TRULY ARE, BUT, Here is a perfect example of an Evil Toxic person who is LITERALLY PISSED OFF AT THE WORLD AND LITERALLY HATES ANYONE WHO HAS FOUND TRUTH, AND HAPPINESS!!! The person who wrote this Article KNOWS, They will NEVER EVER BE ANYWHERE AS HAPPY OR EVEN JUST SATISFIED WITH THEIR OWN LIFE AND SO THEY DESPISE THEM WHO HAVE WHAT THEY WILL NEVER POSSESS!!!
    It’s rather “Poetic” Really, for the one thing these idiots want most and KNOW they will NEVER obtain, (the poetic part being)is them knowing that What they DESPISE MORE THEN ANYTHING ELSE IN THEIR LIVES, is THE ONLY ROUTE THEY CAN TAKE TO ACTUALLY GET THEM THAT TO WHICH THEY WANT MORE THEN ANYTHING ELSE IN THEIR LIVES!!!
    Although it is a WHO CAN GIVE THEM THAT TO WHICH IT IS THEY DESIRE, OR CRAVE, OR WANT!

  2. Democrats just don’t understand that there is more to life than obtaining higher education degrees and making money. Those things don’t give you the gift of happiness. Hope that we receive from the Lord and sharing our mortal and spiritual gifts are what brings true joy in this life and leads to joy in the next life.

  3. Christians have the right to vote every one can vote and looking at sanders campaign the dead even vote and it’s ok. So don’t even go there. We make it a better world. Every one is different. Not one size fits all. And bidon said not the president for us eather. He want a bunt hit of little robust. We are people. That’s not any life for people. We have to be free. If he wants controlling have a job as a boss or teacher. Not try to be a president. It won’t work.
