John Pavlovitz: "Dear Sarah ... maybe your Jesus and my Jesus are just that different"

I watch you every week as you repeatedly distort the truth,
as you attack journalists who come carrying facts.
as you vilify politicians who oppose your employer’s malfeasance,
as you categorically defend his every vile statement, every personal attack, every nonsensical Tweet, every baseless firing, every legislative assault.

I watch your face contort with the unmistakable tells of a person who doesn’t believe a word they’re saying; one who’s sold their soul and is now hopelessly trapped in a lie about a lie about a lie.

I wonder what Jesus-story you tell yourself, about the fact that every week you stand in front of a microphone and willingly perpetuate falsehoods that do great harm to millions of people?

That has to be rough—or maybe it isn’t. Maybe it’s a breeze for you now. Maybe you’ve convinced yourself it’s somehow all the Lord’s work. Maybe you’ve been on this slippery slope of deception for so long that you actually believe the lies now too.

Or maybe your Jesus and my Jesus are just that different.


WHCA President Margaret Talev gets completely ratio'd


Given how badly she's getting slammed in the comment section, I wonder if she regrets putting out this bone-headed statement.

A few examples:

Newsome: White women journalists' defense of Sanders reveals "white womanhood social construct"

Sanders is the WH press secretary who lies to the press on a near daily basis. That's a fact. White womren journalists rushing to defend her as a "wife and mother" b/c Wolf called her on her lies is *peak* white womanhood. 1/

The fact Sanders can lie day in & out and then claim victimhood when called on it (& be supported by many in claiming victimhood) is a perfect example of how the social construct of "white womanhood" operates as a type of violence 2/

Monday thru Friday Sanders is the press secretary telling lie after lie. Saturday, she's called out on it and now she's a "wife and mother" whose honor as a white woman must be defended. The selective outrage from D.C. press is very telling. 3/3
