Viewpoint Discrimination

A left-leaning, generally anti-Christian newspaper called CityBeat (described on Wikipedia as “an independent local arts and issues publication in Cincinnati, Ohio”) recently published an article entitled: “Separation Between News Reporting and Opinion Is Like Church and State.” The article basically dealt with what this writer believes media should or should not cover. In one paragraph, he slammed our local Cincinnati Enquirer newspaper for its coverage of the opening of the Creation Museum. The article stated, “This latest exercise in credulity recalls The Enquirer’s willful blindness to evolution during its coverage of the Creation Museum opening.”

One of the things we have found about many of these anti-Christian activist journalists is that they often cry tolerance, but they really want tolerance of all viewpoints they agree with. However, when there is a viewpoint they disagree with, they don’t come across as very tolerant and often discriminate instead!

Yes, viewpoint discrimination is rife in American media. We find the same with the aggressive atheists that use name-calling and vile language as they write about AiG and the Creation Museum. They often make statements that we should be closed down, “eradicated,” or whatever. Yes, these “tolerant” atheists only tolerate those who agree with them. One of the main reasons I don’t usually link to them and their websites/blogs when I sometimes quote them is that they usually use such vile and blasphemous language that I do not want to subject others to such things. (If you must, you can easily find the sites through an Internet search.)

Thank You from the Bottom of My Heart

I’m a . . . father of two young girls . . . . I am attending . . . University. My oldest daughter, 7 . . . is in the advanced learning class for her grade and they are doing an assignment on dinosaurs. She is being taught a lot of evolutionary thought on them, and though I’ve discussed those issues with her . . . it’s hard to be an impact in her life compared to her teachers. So, I went to your bookstore and ordered a few books for her. I purchased Dinosaurs for Kids, A is for Adam—Coloring Book, Answers Book for Kids: Volume 2, and God Created Dinosaurs.

As a student myself, I live on a very tight budget, and was grateful to be able to purchase those books without bankrupting myself. As a father . . . I am very grateful that AiG has made these resources available for children.

I find your organization to be a continual blessing, and I just wanted to write and make you aware of my appreciation for all that you do . . . you have made it possible for me to introduce them to the Christian truth of Creation in a way that I would have been unable to do if AiG didn’t exist. God bless you, and thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
