CNN Article Claims That The Easter Story Is Like A ‘#MeToo Moment’

Daily Caller: An article from CNN.com published Friday bewilderingly claims that the biblical story of Easter is a #MeToo story from Mary Magdalene’s perspective.

“The men refused to listen to her story,” the article begins. “She was publicly smeared as a whore. And when she emerged as celebrated advocate, powerful men tried to silence her because she threatened their status. Nevertheless she persisted.”

“The woman we’re talking about, though, is not a leader in the #MeToo movement — the viral campaign raising awareness about sexual assault and harassment against women,” it continues.
“She is Mary Magdalene, the first person Jesus appeared to after his resurrection, according to the New Testament, and the first person to preach the good news that he had been raised from the dead.”

The post, which is not marked opinion, continued to make comparisons between the way women are allegedly mistreated in 21st Century America with the way Mary Magdalene, the biblical character, was marginalized.

The article’s author, CNN’s John Blake, draws another comparison between Christ’s crucifixion and #MeToo — the use of “sexual humiliation.”  more here

  1. That reminds me. I totally forgot to beat my wife today.
    That’s OK. My knuckles are still sore from beating her yesterday. I could use a day off.

  2. There needs to be a review done by the FCC regarding content by ALL the news networks to determine whether they are broadcasting bias in the way the write their news stories. It’s time that part of the broadcast regulations enforce a “no bias” rule when broadcasting what they are describing as news is biased or is shaping to news to influence the viewer toward one side. Shows that are more opinion (Hannity, Maddow and the like) or editorial in nature can continue as they are now but if they stray into reporting news they risk sanctions.

  3. I think a big reason the LSM has hated America since ’48 (70 years for the liberals reading) is that they hate Christ and Christians. NPR was t bad 2 days ago.

  4. Bob, I see that Gateway Pundit is calling him Anthony Fremont now, wishing her into the cornfield.
