This is a brief post to let people know about an outstanding article in the Washington Post. Sarah Pulliam Bailey wrote about evangelical Christians and their distrust of the mainstream media.
“In all debates, let Truth be thy aim, not Victory.”
We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. 4 And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong. 5 In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. 6 And among all the parts of the body, the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself
James 3:3-6 NLT

Sarah Pulliam Bailey wrote a fantastic article in the Washington Post called, “Evangelicals, your attacks on ‘the media’ are getting dangerous.” It was written in response to a gunman going into Comet Ping Pong here in the Washington, D.C. area inspired by fake news. I went to Comet Ping Pong tonight and supported the business in light of ongoing pressure created by fake news. On Wednesday The Wondering Eagle is going to discuss Sarah’s article in greater detail. Plus the post will be about how Pizzagate, and fake media threaten the legitimacy of religious blogs such as this one. Plus I also want to write about the sources and methods I use in writing this blog. In addition I also want to explore how freedom of the press comes with great responsibility and how does the scandal of the evangelical mind plays into this situation? Can evangelicals not fact check fake news because they struggle with critical thinking skills and discernment? While I want to get into all of this on Wednesday I want to let people know about an outstanding article in the Washington Post. Take care guys!
