Every time we think CNN can’t possibly get any worse, they prove us wrong by doing just that. In a recent article on their website, they compare the holy Christian holiday of Easter to the #MeToo movement. This is a new low, even for CNN.
Here’s a safe link to the Daily Caller:
CNN Article Claims That The Easter Story Is Like A ‘#MeToo Moment’
An article from CNN.com published Friday bewilderingly claims that the biblical story of Easter is a #MeToo story from Mary Magdalene’s perspective.
“The men refused to listen to her story,” the article begins. “She was publicly smeared as a whore. And when she emerged as celebrated advocate, powerful men tried to silence her because she threatened their status. Nevertheless she persisted.”
“The woman we’re talking about, though, is not a leader in the #MeToo movement — the viral campaign raising awareness about sexual assault and harassment against women,” it continues.
“She is Mary Magdalene, the first person Jesus appeared to after his resurrection, according to the New Testament, and the first person to preach the good news that he had been raised from the dead.”
The post, which is not marked opinion, continued to make comparisons between the way women are allegedly mistreated in 21st Century America with the way Mary Magdalene, the biblical character, was marginalized.
What is wrong with these people? Do they not realize how insulting this is to millions of Christians?
