... here's the mass-mailing email circulating from the American Family Association urging storming of the Newsweek battlements. Please take a few minutes to "go and do likewise" -- use their helpful info printed below to let Newsweek know there are people of both faith and brains who appreciate a mainstream news publication recognizing that there actually ARE theological perspectives this side of the narrow, literalist fundamentalism that uses the Bible as a weapon in their culture war against those who disagree with their theological perspective.
Their voices are out there ... ours need to be, too!
Please help us get this information into the hands of as many people as possible by forwarding it to your entire e-mail list of family and friends: Newsweek trashes the Bible in support of homosexual marriage
December 8, 2008
Newsweek magazine has published a lengthy article stating that the Bible supports homosexual marriage. The article was written Lisa Miller, Newsweek religion editor.
Miller's article is one of the most biased and distorted pieces concerning homosexual marriage ever published by any major news organization. The article is much too long for this e-mail.
Dr. Albert Mohler has offered a response to the Newsweek article. I suggest you read Mohler’s article and then read Miller's Newsweek article.
Send an e-mail to Newsweek telling Newsweek you are disappointed with its distorted interpretation of scripture.
Forward this e-mail to your friends and family. They need to see how the media distorts scripture to support same-sex marriage. Ask them to send the e-mail to Newsweek.
Call CEO Thomas E. Ascheim at 212-445-5245. Please be polite.
If you subscribe to Newsweek, cancel your subscription and tell them why.
Thank you for caring enough to get involved.
Sincerely, Donald E. Wildmon,
Founder and Chairman
American Family Association
