New Yorker Magazine Ridicules Sarah Sanders For Christian Faith

Published

on

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.

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe

The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Published

on

The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.

Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.

There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.

Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.

MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
