Five Reasons Why We Accept The News Normalizing Death and War – The love of Jesus joining with the love of money; the forgiveness of Christ joining with the hate preached by the religious right; the humbleness and peace of Christ joining with the arrogance of a lying, warring administration.
Below is how these cruel and cynical contradictions exist:
- We are fearful of death. Most of us want to live forever, and religion promises that we can if we just side with the right deity and give its emissaries our power and money.
- Power in availability and convenience, so we accept whatever the TV tells us. People are attracted to the tube.
- Television “ministries” have credibility because they are on TV. Shows and commercials say to get hair, thin, a new car, an erection, to get…yes, religion and eternal life.
- We’ve been taught to abdicate our authority to those who claim to have authority over us.
- “Ministries” succeed, because they sell hate. Hate the haters in the name of Jesus!
