Worldnutdaily Proves Moyers’ Point

As if on cue, the Worldnutdaily has provided a perfect example of what Bill Moyers was talking about in the quote I posted yesterday about Christian evangelicals viewing our foreign policy through the prism of end times eschatology.

Amazing role of U.S., Israel, Iraq in Bible prophecy screams the headline. It links, predictably, to yet another one of their famous fake articles that is really an advertisement for some other book they’re pimping. That book, it says, “breaks through the cluttered and often confusing information overload on this topic, presenting the Scriptures and current events side-by-side, leading to some startling but inescapable conclusions.” In other words, don’t you worry your pretty little heads about the details, we’ve got it all wrapped up in a neat little package for you. Pretty typical, and quite illustrative of exactly what Moyers was talking about.

    Heh. Any site such as WND that uses intrusive, deceptive pop-ups, pop-unders, and “optimizers” (adware) should be taken with several grains of salt. Maybe the new Firefox browser could include a “bullsh*t indicator” based on the amount of sneaky tricks on a page…

    Aside from the popup ads and adware, WND appears to make pretty much the same arguments that you make on your blog, especially regarding gay marriage and Christianity.
