Is there any low to which liberals will not sink?
We’ll say this: By and large, the mainstream media has been appropriately reverent and respectful in eulogizing the late, great Billy Graham, a man whose powerful Christian message transformed this country in ways that may never be fully appreciated. Let’s put it this way: We were expecting worse.
On the other hand, you didn’t have to look too hard to find worse.
In The Guardian newspaper, Matthew Avery Sutton devoted an entire column to letting his readers know that Graham should be vilified for…basically not being a liberal shill?
“Graham had the opportunity to lead fundamentalists into a new era. He could have pushed them to take social reform seriously as a God-given mandate to save the world from environmental destruction. He could have tackled racism, America’s original sin, by championing the federal government’s aggressive civil rights policies,” Sutton wrote. “But he squandered it. He could not overcome the speculative end-times schemes of his cohort of evangelicals, with their anti-government hostilities.”
That’s just idiotic. Because Graham did not preach climate change and racial healing as a primary message, his entire life was meaningless? Graham, Mr. Sutton, was concerned with one thing and one thing only: Leading his followers to the peace and salvation of Jesus Christ. Through Him, all societal ills are healed. That doesn’t make every Christian perfect by any means, but then again, not every Christian actually knows Christ. Some make a show of it, some think they know him but have missed the mark. But you can’t blame that on Graham, who was one of the greatest messengers of the gospel since the days of the apostles themselves.
But hey, Sutton’s remarks about Graham’s legacy were positively glowing when compared to the walking piece of human trash that is Teen Vogue columnist Lauren Duca. Her respect for what Graham had accomplished over decades of faithful service boiled down to these tweets:
“The big news today is that Billy Graham was still alive this whole time,” she wrote. “Anyway, have fun in hell, bitch.”
How absolutely disgusting. If this were a conservative writing something like this about…oh, take your pick: Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Farrakhan…they would be driven out of polite society with a stick. It would be front page news and President Trump would have to answer for their comments at every press conference for the next two weeks. But since it’s a liberal writing about a conservative man of the cloth, it’s fine. Because hey, the dude opposed abortion and he didn’t preach about climate change, so to hell with him, right?
It’s funny that these people really thought it took Russian interference for the country to reject their message in 2016. They really don’t get it at all.
