An Un-biased Newspaper?

An Un-biased Newspaper

Most people know and understand that our media is not neutral, and in fact, usually takes a pretty harsh stand against Christians. However, this is over the top.

I received this information via email today and I thought it was worth passing along.

If any of you subscribe to the below-mentioned newspaper, I would strongly consider revoking your subscription and/or writing a letter of complaint to the editor. The common saying is true: “the squeaky wheel gets the oil” . . .


Rev. Jerry Jones Secretary of United Pentecostal Church International Responds to Cartoon. See the cartoon below.

Talk about borderline blasphemy – this “cartoon” is the epitome of it.  If this had been written about an aspect of the Muslim religion, the WashPost writer would have death threats against him.  Below the pathetic joke is a letter written by Bro Jones from UPCI Headquarters to the Washington Post.  Pray for our nation!

A Message from Jerry Jones:

Dear Sir:

I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the long-denied political bias of the editorial board of the Washington Post confirmed by the highly offensive cartoon by Pat Oliphant published on September 9th. I was shocked to discover the board also holds a religious prejudice as well. To single out those of us who are Pentecostal and revere as well as practice the Scriptural experience of speaking in tongues in such a calculatedly offensive way is disgusting. That it was published by a leading U. S. newspaper is beyond belief. Quite obviously the board’s phobia of Governor Palin has caused it to lose its senses as well as its decency. To attack her on the basis of her political positions is certainly within your right, but to attack and ridicule her solely on the basis of her faith, a faith that is practiced by a significant number of Americans is indefensible.

A response by the millions of Pentecostals both in their future choice of reading material as well as at the polls can be expected from this unprovoked attack on a belief that spans many denominations of Christianity.

If such a deliberate disregard of the sincerely held beliefs of a significant segment of our population is fair game in the pursuit of a political agenda, how can the already tattered reputation of the traditional press in our country be rehabilitated? The abrogation of your responsibility to respect and exhibit at least a minimum sensitivity toward others beliefs relegates the fabled Washington Post to the sorry company of yellow journalism rags of the past.

I urge the editorial board to issue an immediate apology to the millions offended by this silly and disgusting cartoon.

General Secretary
