Friday is National Religious Freedom Day, and what better time to consider where threats to American religious freedom originate. (Hint – it’s not with Bible-thumping Baptist preachers or dogmatic Catholic cardinals.)

Progressives, who love to congratulate themselves on their tolerance and pluralism, are increasing intolerant when it comes to religion – or Christianity, anyway. Muslims seem to get a pass. On college campuses, Christian groups that refuse to allow non-believers to become officers have been forced to disband. In South Carolina, the atheist group Freedom from Religion Foundation pressured a privately-owned restaurant to cease offering discounts to customers who pray before their meals. The groups suggested Mary’s Gourmet Diner was in violation of the Civil Rights Act.

The Huffington Post keeps chipping away at its less than favorable credibility. Just a few days ago, they claimed to have been in contact with a source that said he was the “best friend” of an 18 year old black man who was shot by police in a St. Louis suburb – drawing some to compare the recent police shooting to that of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. It turns out their "friend" turned out to be a fraud, who duped the website through Twitter messages.

Here’s a question: how can you tell when you are reading “news” from the Huffington Post?  Answer:  When both views on a highly controversial topic are NOT given…meaning, only the liberal view.

Case in point: An article the Huffington Post wrote on Monday about the Federal appeals court declaring a North Carolina law requiring abortion providers to show a woman the ultrasound and describing the images in detail before going through an abortion as unconstitutional.

Earlier tonight, Curtis Houck at NewsBusters observed that the Tuesday evening network news shows failed to report on an opinion issued today by a federal judge in Western Pennsylvania in connection with President Obama's illegal immigration-related executive actions last month.

Several blogs and center-right outlets noted Judge Arthur Schwab's 38-page "Memorandum Opinion" this afternoon. Not that this excuses the networks, but a search at the Associated Press's national site just before 8 p.m. on Schwab's last name (unfortunately not saved) returned nothing relevant. But shortly after 8 p.m. a story with a time stamp of 5:08 p.m. with Schwab's name finally showed up in the same search. Only the AP can explain how this could have happened.

This past Thanksgiving weekend, with all the stories going on in the country today, one seems to have topped the list: an unknown GOP staffer decided to voice her opinion about the Obama daughters after they were pictured during the White House turkey pardon ceremony…on her Facebook page. Yep.  That’s the story. Criticizing the daughters for their short skirts and glum facial expressions is....a firing offense?

Chuck Todd, NBC News Political Director and moderator of Meet the Press, sat down with Marc Lamont Hill of HuffPost Live to promote his book “The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House” and made some interesting remarks about cable news. Speaking on Tuesday, November 18, Todd argued that “Roger Ailes’ political past… sort of makes it, because he actually worked as an operative, it [Fox News] always feels a little more campaign-y than, but I think certainly you know, than what gets accused on the MSNBC side of things.”

Question: if there’s no such thing as a slut, how can anyone be guilty of “slut-shaming?” 

Don’t dismiss it as one of those timeless philosophical conundrums (ie. “Which came first, the slut or the shamer?”). The answer is an important key to navigating the shoals of perpetual feminist outrage.

The Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press — the entity which to our great misfortune is considered the de facto news source of record by the nation's establishment press — finally broke down several days ago and mentioned the name "Jonathan Gruber" in a news story.

Of course, the wire service saved Philip Elliott's story for Friday afternoon to minimize its visibility; the time stamp at the AP's national site is 4:20 p.m. ET Friday; that's only a minute later than the 3:19 p.m. CT time stamp found here at the earliest Google News entry I could find. Elliott largely made the story almost entirely about Republicans' and conservatives' reactions to what Gruber has said — as if they're the only ones who should be deeply troubled about Gruber's insulting descriptions of the American people and the fundamental dishonesty involved in drafting and passing the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, in early 2010. But he also quite dishonestly tried to claim that Gruber wasn't even an "architect" of the law (bolds and numbered tags are mine):

Disagreeing with liberals is not traitorous.

The editors of The Huffington Post apparently do not feel awkward about putting headline above a black Republican woman with the words “She looks black, but.....” She “looks” black? The full headline was “She Looks Black, but Her Politics Are Red: What Mia Love's Victory Means for the Face of the GOP.”

Darron Smith, Ph. D, who “looks black,” but writes for the very white Arianna Huffington, wondered “How does a black, female conservative and Latter-day Saint manage to negotiate so many foreboding white contexts?” Her election in a largely white district still represents a victory for "white privilege." She apparently suffers from a “apparent Stockholm syndrome of black Mormons" and makes “an unholy compromise” in avoiding any racial or gender advocacy:

If there was ever a clear-cut example of the blatant bias the media shows to favor homosexuals and demonize Christians, this would be it. One of the stars of Amazon’s streaming television show “Orange is the new black” had it out in a shouting match with a preacher on the New York City subway Tuesday morning. The video was uploaded last night and has gone viral, thanks no doubt to the media’s fawning headlines.

The Huffington Post published a tweet from Houston Mayor Annise Parker claiming that her daughter was denied a driver's license due to having two moms. However, a later update to the story shows that Parker was much less than truthful about the initial reason for the denial of the driver's license.
