In a Magna Carta length profile on President Donald J. Trump’s press secretary, a prominent magazine appears to have one takeaway: fundamental Christian beliefs are backwards and should be ridiculed.
“Sarah Huckabee Sanders attends a D.C. church that is an aﬃliate of Hillsong, the global megachurch that teaches creationism and intelligent design,” tweeted the New Yorker as a teaser, linking to the full piece. “Sanders, asked if she shared these views, said, ‘I believe in the Bible.'”

“What does the press secretary believe in – other than defending the President’s every word,” is the sub-heading of the piece penned by Paige Williams, which rivals the Iliad in word count.
The message of the piece is clear. Sanders believes in Christianity, and that is unacceptable in progressive America.
The entire piece is a testament to the fact that only one sect of one religion in America – fundamental Christian evangelicalism – can be ridiculed without penalty. If one were to write such a piece about fundamental Islam he or she would be barred from public discourse, labeled a bigot and xenophobe.
“Sanders opposes gay marriage, but isn’t a virulent homophobe like her father—he defends conversion therapy and says that gay relationships have an ‘ick factor,'” according the piece.
The implication, of course, is that all those who practice religions that denounce gay marriage are homophobes, with the only question being to what extent. When did it become unacceptable to be a Christian in America, a country founded on Protestantism?
In fact, the piece spent a considerable amount of time bashing Sanders’ father, Mike Huckabee.
“Her father is Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, who, as a teen-ager, wrote in a Baptist newspaper that the ‘Christian youth of today are searching for real answers to real problems presented in a blunt manner,'” it said.
What is controversial about that statement, surely written more than 40 years ago? Nothing. Except for the fact that it espouses a message of Christianity.
“I asked Sanders how she, as a Christian, reconciles her religious beliefs with her support for Trump—a man whose Presidency has been imperilled, [sic] in part, by his payment of hush money to a porn star with whom he allegedly committed adultery,” the piece said. “Instead of a searching answer, she gave me what has become a pat rationalization of many American evangelicals.”
The “hush money” claim, by the way, has yet to be be proven.
“’I’m not going to my office expecting it to be my church,’” [Sanders] answered,'” according to the piece.
And this, in a nutshell, is why so many people – particularly Southern evangelical Christians – harbor disdain for the mainstream press. Williams, on a dime, turned from snottily mocking Christianity as backwards and regressive, to lecturing Sanders on how to practice her own Christian faith.
People who harbor nothing but disdain for Christianity could, at the very least, stop telling Christians how un-Christian they are for supporting Trump.
Only the elite leftist media could lack such self-awareness.
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
