New York Times Slams Karen Pence for Christian Beliefs on Marriage, Gives Rashida Tlaib a Pass for Sex-Segregated Mosque
The virulently anti-Christian mainstream press was back at work Wednesday, trashing Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, for teaching at a Christian school that holds the standard belief that marriage should be held between a man and a woman.
“Karen Pence, the second lady of the United States, returned to teaching art this week, accepting a part-time position at a private Christian school that does not allow gay students and requires employees to affirm that marriage should only be between a man and a woman,” the former paper of record said, scorning the second lady.
Traditional marriage is not one of those religious liberties protected by the First Amendment by which the social justice warriors in the mainstream press can abide.
“How can this happen in America in 2019?” asked Washington Post editor and Politico writer Lois Romano on Twitter, attaching the hit piece on Pence.
However, in the name of “diversity,” which is now, and always will be, America’s greatest strength, the leftist press is willing to let the non-social-justice-friendly customs of Islam slide, which is exactly what they did when they wrote about freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) attending her sex-segregated mosque.
“The symbolic importance of her new role was only starting to sink in as Ms. Tlaib walked into the women’s entrance of her family’s mosque on Friday for afternoon prayers,” the Times wrote in a glowing piece about Tlaib.
“Inside, Ms. Tlaib joined her mother and other women to form a single line at the front of the room. For the first time, an American almost certainly on her way to Congress stood shoulder to shoulder with her Muslim sisters and bowed toward Mecca,” it continued.
The Times and the rest of the social justice media simply glossed over the fact that, “in America in 2019,” to use Romano’s terms, Muslim women can’t even use the same entrance as Muslim men at the local mosque. This practice is among many Islamic customs that aren’t social justice friendly. But the press sweeps those under the rug, because… diversity!
An honest press would would be just as appalled at this obviously-sexist Islamic custom as they are at the fact that some Christians don’t believe in gay marriage, which they call homophobic on a regular basis.
But we do not have an honest press in the country – only a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party. So Tlaib gets a pass, and Pence gets bashed.
Our media is garbage.
