Corporate Media Lets Christian Leaders Use Easter Airtime to Attack Obama
The only reason either of these men were on national television was because it was Easter Sunday. Both of them could have limited themselves to a non-political Easter message, but they chose to misuse their positions as religious leaders to attack the President of the United States. We watched two high profile Christians morph from moral leaders to partisan political hacks.
Cardinal Dolan spoke about holding a religious and constitutional point of view. Rick Warren sounded like he was straight out of Fox News with his talk of wealth redistribution and chatter about Americans not being better off than they were four years ago. Just for kicks Warren and Jake Tapper also worked in the false statistic that 50% of Americans don’t pay income taxes, but do you know who really doesn’t pay taxes? Rick Warren and his mega church are tax exempt. Dolan discussed the issue of religious freedom, but he has no problem with the government intervening to take away the rights of women.
Why are Rick Warren and Timothy Dolan allowed to go on national television and spread their dangerous concoction of politics fueled religion on Easter Sunday? There is something fundamentally wrong with religious leaders abusing their position and the air time that comes with it on a religious holiday to attack President Obama.
