It's almost Christmas - the time we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Our airwaves are filled with misinformation about the Bible and what it actually says.
The reason for the season is lost - 1 in 10 British people (18-24) believe "Father Christmas" was a Biblical figure mentioned in Gospel accounts of Jesus Christ's birth. The poll also found that these folks were very ignorant of the Bible's actual Christ birth story and confused basic portions of the Gospel.
Georgetown’s affirmative action prof, Michael Eric Dyson informed a television audience on MSNBC that anti-gay Christians are mistaken about homosexuality because of the “homoerotic” themes in the Bible. He dropped the bomb the “Jesus was a Jew” after pointing out the irony that many Christians are supposedly anti-Semitic. Dyson also noted that the “untrained observer” could be forgiven for seeing “homoerotic” themes in the Bible.
His proof? A quote that said, “I love him more than I love her.” “Hmm,” Dyson pondered. “Do you really? That sounds interestingly homoerotic to people who are outside your religious traditions. I ’m not suggesting it is, but I’m suggesting that there are some very interesting narrative tensions within the Bible itself and within Christianity beyond that,” Dyson concluded.
Meanwhile Piers Morgan (the noted Biblical scholar) got his ass kicked by a REAL Biblical scholar after trying to claim that homosexuality is not biggie according to the Bible.
