Religion of Liberalism: Washington Post's 'On Faith' Blog

March 12th, 2012 11:31 AM
The Washington Post’s “On Faith” blog network bills itself as “a conversation on religion and politics.” But the conversation of “On Faith” more accurately resembles a diatribe justifying liberal politics with religious imagery.  During this past week, Becky Garrison claimed that Christian actor Kirk Cameron was not a Christian because he opposes homosexual marriage, and Lisa Miller…

WashPost's Miller Sees 'Feminism's Final Frontier' As 'Religion,' Wher

March 8th, 2012 5:58 PM
The  "war on women" is more than a political fight waged in the civil arena. It's a spiritual conflict with patriarchal pulpits raining down oppression onto the women in the pews, Washington Post religion reporter Lisa Miller complains in an "On Faith" item posted today, "International Women's Day":

March 3rd, 2012 11:10 PM

February 25th, 2012 2:41 PM
In Saturday's Washington Post, Newsweek religion editor Lisa Miller launched into a predictable attack on Rick Santorum and Franklin Graham for daring to imply that Barack Obama might be un-Christian in some way. "Last week, the Christianity police, in the persons of Rick Santorum and Franklin Graham, came forward to discredit the president's religious beliefs." Santorum said Obama had a "phony…

WashPost's February 18 'On Faith' Section Evangelizes for Obama Contra

February 20th, 2012 12:53 PM
Campaign advice for President Obama on how to defend his contraceptive mandate. A nun offering a "Catholic" defense of same-sex marriage. Both items from this Saturday's paper constitute the latest example of how the Washington Post's "On Faith" feature is a printed bully pulpit for both liberal theology and a liberal political agenda. In "How Obama should fight the ‘war on religion,’" Post…

WaPo's Miller Praises 'Frankness' of Evangelical Pastors About Sex, W

November 10th, 2011 6:26 PM
To Washington Post religion reporter Lisa Miller, evangelical ministers like Rick Warren and Tim Keller should be applauded for their "clinical frankness" about God's design for sexual pleasure within the covenant of marriage in their sermons, books, and even tweets. Now if only they could just get over that silly biblical injunction against homosexuality, Miller lamented in her November 10 "…

WaPo's 'On Faith': Jesus Would Bless 'Occupy Wall Street' Movement

October 21st, 2011 3:07 PM
On Washington Post's On Faith blog, Daily Beast contributor Lisa Miller teased a piece about Occupy Wall Street with a worthy question: "What would Jesus think about Occupy Wall Street?" Her answer was simple, and predictably liberal: "The Jesus of history would love them all." In a piece titled "Jesus at Occupy Wall Street: 'I feel like I've been here before,'" Miller portrayed the…

August 19th, 2011 4:07 PM
It's not just conservative evangelicals like me who think liberals like Daily Beast/Newsweek's Michelle Goldberg are whipped into a paranoid frenzy over Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann's supposed ties to Christian "dominionism." Washington Post religion writer Lisa Miller -- no stranger to criticism from NewsBusters -- took to the "On Faith" blog yesterday to tell readers to "Beware false…

August 14th, 2011 6:47 AM
The "On Faith" page in Saturday's Washington Post contained an editorial from Newsweek religion editor Lisa Miller lamenting how Barack Obama has disappointed his liberal base by not being more vocal against "the mean certainties of the religious right."

Newsweek Slams 'Theological Bully' Franklin Graham, Tilting His Politi

May 17th, 2011 4:59 PM
Newsweek religion editor Lisa Miller wrote a story on "The Fight Over Billy Graham's Legacy," but the most notable thing that comes out of it is Miller's loathing of Rev. Franklin Graham (no relation). Miller clearly believes he's mangling his father's moderation, especially when it comes to Islam: Franklin — who’s been accused of being a rhetorical and theological bully, saying, for example…

Newsweek's Lisa Miller Hypes 'New Scholarship' on Bible's View of Huma

February 7th, 2011 5:38 PM
Leave it to the religion writer who sees the Jesus of the Bible as "typically cranky" to give credence to "scholars" who argue the Bible considers gay and/or premarital sex perfectly kosher. In her February 6 post, "What the Bible Really Says About Sex," Miller noted that "[t]wo new books written by university scholars for a popular audience try to answer this question.":

MRC's Worst of the Week: Favors for Democrats, Slashing 'Bizarre' GOP

September 30th, 2010 9:19 AM

Diane Sawyer excitedly touted how “we got to listen in on a phone call today,” as viewers saw a brief clip of President Obama talking to a cancer patient who thanked him for the government takeover of health care.Then on Monday, NBC…

September 27th, 2010 6:51 PM
Are "Mama Grizzlies" who oppose state children's health insurance programs (S-CHIP) and teachers' unions unfaithful to their maternal name?

Miller appeared on CNN's "American Morning" to feature her most recent piece on "Mama Grizzlies," prominent female conservatives in the vein of Sarah Palin."All the…

Media Bash Beck for Not Being Evangelical After Years of Bashing Evang

August 31st, 2010 5:48 PM
The editors of the mainstream media must think we all have very short memories. Their latest schtick is to smear conservative talk show host Glenn Beck as a creepy Mormon who has no business influencing evangelicals. Aside from the disgusting hypocrisy of Mormon-baiting one minute and then bashing Islamophobia the next, these news outlets are also hoping you've forgotten about their recent…
