The Cult of Criticisers

I'm talking about the media. The professionals tilted towards making others look bad. Unfair and unbalanced.

Theology aside, look at the passing of Jerry Falwell. He established and developed one of the largest Evangelical Universities in the world. What did the media grave diggers unearth? He was overweight.

Then came the death of Mother Teresa. She was world-renown for helping the weak and downtrodden. However, the September 10, 2007 issue of NEWSWEEK reports her lack of faith by a writer totally opposed to her. The article is titled, The Dogmatic Doubter. His book with a double-meaning title is cited: The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice. Yuk.

In the NEWSWEEK article, a photo of the nun is shown talking to Yasir Arafat.

This week James Kennedy of Coral Ridge fame died. His crime was that he preached against homosexuality and abortion. This caused some visitors to go to other preachers in the area in tears, seeking relief from this verbal oppression. In the news writer's eyes, it is wrong to believe that right and wrong exists (how contradictory!), especially if anyone is offended by that belief.

There is rising fear among media professionals that their world of criticism and anger is becoming irrelevant and they are being replaced by non-professionals on the Internet. I think I can see at least one reason why.
