A study by a conservative media watchdog charges three major network television stations with bestowing a favorable bias on Earth Day while smearing Easter, Christians' holy day, with allegations of pedophilia.
The Media Research Center's Culture and Media Institute examined media reports during the 2010 Holy Week – March 28 through April 4 – and contrasted it with two weeks of Earth Day coverage. The study, "Holy Week: Media Worship Earth Day, Attack Easter," found that last year networks ABC, CBS and NBC's evening news shows mentioned "Easter" primarily in connection to the 2010 pedophilia scandals that swirled around the Vatican, using terms such as "scandal," "sexual abuse" and "crisis." By contrast, coverage of Earth Day received positive attention from the three broadcast media giants.
Highlighted examples include NBC News' discussion of sexual abuse allegations during the network's Easter Sunday coverage. more >>
This Friday marks one of the holiest days in the Christian calendar. To the believer, Good Friday marks the day that Jesus Christ died for sinners. He laid down His life to pay a price He didn’t owe, but a price we could never pay.
To Christians, this is our Day of Atonement and our Passover-all rolled into one on the same day. To put it in religious jargon, the death of the Lamb of God brings forgiveness of sins for those who believe.
In short, Good Friday is the day when we honor the self-sacrifice of Christ on the cross on behalf of sinners. more >>
Fewer Protestant pastors believe global warming is real and that humans are responsible for the phenomena, a faith-based research organization reported.
“Pastors’ sentiments on global warming have shifted right in step with Americans in general,” said Scott McConnell, director of LifeWay Research, in a statement released Monday.
A thousand randomly-selected pastors with different denominational backgrounds and political ideologies were interviewed in a survey conducted by LifeWay Research in October last year. Participants were asked if they “believe global warming is real and manmade” and told to answer either “strongly disagree,” “somewhat disagree,” “somewhat agree” or “strongly agree.” more >>

Conservative policy experts and religious leaders have collaborated to condemn the radical environmentalism movement in a 12-part video series.
The series, called “Resisting the Green Dragon,” features criticisms of the green movement which religious leaders contend is a false religion that puts nature above people.
"Environmentalists have a long history of believing and promoting exaggerations and myths," says Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission in the video. more >>
Who says that we live in a secular age? I’ll have you know that a recent U.N. climate change conference began with a prayer that the delegates would receive divine inspiration as they went about saving the planet.
Of course, the deity being prayed to was not the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ but, rather, a goddess who demanded regular sacrifices, including the occasional human one. Given what is going on at Cancun, this invocation seems oddly fitting.
The “invocation” was given by Christiana Figueres at the start of the conference in Cancun, Mexico. Perhaps inspired by the setting, Figueres invoked the Mayan goddess Ixchel. more >>
