CNN series God's Warriors bashes conservative Christians, says pastor

A conservative political activist claims the CNN documentary series God's Warriors was "utterly irresponsible journalism" that defamed Christianity. Dr. Gary Cass says the documentary was another example of what he calls the mainstream media's "incessant Christian-bashing."



Cass says in Thursday night's final installment of the CNN special, reporter Christiane Amanpour tried to equate the "Christian Right" with Islamic terrorists like the Taliban. Cass, chairman and CEO of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission and former head of the Center for Reclaiming America for Christ, says the "religiously motivated political reform movement" was discussed in the context of violent religious extremism.

According to Cass, "By lumping Christian religious conservatives into a series that began with a focus on terrorism, it creates an impression of guilt by association." Amanpour, he believes, tried to establish similarities between Christian political activism and Islamic terrorism.

"It seems as if there may be a problem of moral equivalency stating that what we do peacefully and lawfully, in trying to bring change to the culture, is in any way related to what violent fundamentalists and other religions do in the name of their religion," he offers.

He also argues that the documentary portrayed people who deny biblical truth as reasonable. Cass points out that only those who might be considered as conservatives are challenged on their conclusions, while moderates are never challenged.

"And it's because the media is not self-conscious of its own bias," he asserts. "[T]hey cannot see that they have an agenda that they are advancing -- and so when they find people who agree with them, they don't think it's necessary to challenge them because they've already come to their own, what I would consider to be, unbelieving conclusion."

Cass says in Amanpour's documentary, liberals such as Jimmy Carter who deny biblical truth were portrayed as thoughtful "forces of moderation," while conservative Christians were portrayed in a negative light and "looked down upon."

Just as Jesus said, "They have rejected me and they will reject you"

I personally will never compromise the Word of God to look good before men, so if bashing Christians is how they get their thrills  'so be it'.

This is actually not even about religion or Christianity in general it is about the Kingdom of God that will soon be established right here on earth.  I just hope that all the Jesus bashers and all those who say God does not exists and those that want God out of their lives will be around just long enough to see that God will set up His Kingdom and the Jesus is Lords of lords and King of kings.

Amen, sister. Those who reject Jesus Christ will indeed see the Kingdom of God in all of it's power and glory even though they will never enter in through it's gates for every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess to God.

Then they will realize how ignorant they all are. Just as one Pastor said beauty fades but dumb is forever.

AMEN sister AMEN!!

John 3:18 He who believes in Him [who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him] is not judged [he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgment; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation--he incurs no damnation]; but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already [he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence] because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ's name.]

People buckle under to that false religion!! They say jump... and we jump!!

One of these days... every knee will bend and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!!

Philippians 2:10-11 That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee [a]should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 And every tongue [frankly and openly] confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

I'll just say that the devil and cnn are busy, and I have no use at all for cnn, even if it was the last news channel in existence.

I think that we can all expect more of this kind of thing. Disrespect for GOD in any way used to be completely taboo on television, but now a major news channel thinks nothing of this. As far as I'm concerned, cnn has reduced itself to less than a garbage tabloid. I would consider the howling of a dog to be of greater importance than cnn.
