Another Lent, Another Stab At Arianism
Like clockwork *sigh*
A helmet tip to Regular Guy Paul, Fr. Richtsteig, double Mac, and Amy.

It's Lent, otherwise known as open season on Christianity. OK... so going back a few years, what has Lent signified to the secular world?

~ March 2003. Unbelievably stupid people took serious a book that consists of chapters that were a whopping 2-3 pages in length. Oh, and let's not forget about albino Opus Dei monks that were actually hit men.

~ March 2006. National Geographic ceased to be the premier publication that made adolescent boys go blind and have hair grow on the palms of their hands... and switched to the heady task of making us buy off on something called "The Gospel of Judas".

~ (Double helmet tip to Amy) April 2, 2006. NBC actually gives air time to some doofus claiming he has proof that Jesus was never crucified. Oddly enough, this moron fails to display the good manners of actually giving us any "proof". We're all suppose to take his word for it.

~ March 1999. Bubba Clinton orders a cruise missile and aerial bombing campaign against Serbia to begin during the Serbian Orthodox season of The Great Lent, or what some call The Great Fast. Amazingly enough, he specifically ordered that no air strikes would take place against Iraq during Ramadan... even if the Hussein regime violated the No Fly Zone agreement and tried to kill American and allied personnel. But it's OK to kill Christians during Lent.

~ February 2007. Now we have the King of the Chick Flicks (and crappy ones at that) telling the world that he has DNA evidence that Jesus "and His family" are buried in Jerusalem. Gee... I sure would like to see the blood samples of Jesus Christ, The Holy Mother, and St. Mary Magdalen that James Cameron has in his possession. Wouldn't you?

You mean Cameron possesses first class relics from the Holy Family!?!?!?!? He should offer them on Ebay -- there's a sucker born every minute.

Why does the MSM give coverage to these groundless news in the first place? There is a market out there for anti-christian news. Many want the ultimate evidence that everything Christ did and said is a lie, not because of any theological or factual difficulty, but due to the need to believe there is neither sin nor any supreme authority above every individual's will according to which, and not to our own inclinations, we must shape our life.

Amen to that theophilus! They also don't care that the Orthodox Church in Serbia is being wiped out in favor of Jihadists. Churches can burn, clergy can be murdered or thrown in prison, little Christian girls can be beheaded, and NOT A PEEP from the NCC or MSM. But God help you if you get drunk and say something bad about Jews, if you quote a Byzantine Emporer! Not even when they bomb both Maronite and Orthodox churches in Lebanon.

With no Jesus, there's no judgement, and then perverts can go around fornicating without guilt.

Nicely put, Cavey...

...ok, so when, exactly did I become "double" Mac?

...It's "Big" Mac to the Caveman (unless you prefer "The Magnificent Mulier Fortis")

Thank you for commenting on this issue. We've sunk a long way from when I was growing up and they would play "Jesus of Nazareth" on television during Lent.

It's a constant this time of year. Lent comes, the MSM pulls out the stops to show we're a bunch of backwards ignoramuses who follow a religion of lies.

And I'd be willing to wager that next year at this time, the same sort of clap-trap will come down the pike. Just in time for Easter.

I notice, however, they save the praise and glory for Ramadan, knowing we Christians won't riot as they attempt to disprove the very foundations of our faith.

Theophilus is probably the most spot-on in his analysis. By attempting to disprove Christianity, the MSM hopes to reaffirm the secular agenda they profess, and that the ultimate god is man.

Which is bunk.

I saw their (Cameron and Sim..whateverhisnameis) documentary on the Exodus.

I have to say it was interesting. I rememember being in Greece and thinking something I saw reminded me of the Ark of the Covenant. The director thinks theory being that the Danaans mentioned in the Iliad are related to the tribe of Dan. They also travel to a site where they say was the real Mt. Sinai.

On the one hand, he was explaining away the miracles, but on the other hand, he could never explain how Moses knew they'd happen. I found myself torn between cheering that he found evidence that the events really happened, and wincing at the absence of divine intervention in his explanations.

If this new film is anything like the other one, I shudder to think how much more damaging this will be because it's a "documentary" and it's on the Discovery Channel.
