Fish Wrapper Continues Taking Shots At Christianity With Profiles Of Liberals

And still the fawning profiles of liberals keep on coming. Once again, it's time to add another entry to the Profiles category of the site. This time, the subject is Marcus Borg, who is retiring as a religion professor from Oregon State University.

As usual, the profile starts out trying to paint Borg as just an ordinary person.

Oregon's leading theologian walks his dog up and down the trendy streets of the Pearl District. His neighbors know Henry, the shaggy gray Glen of Imaal terrier, whose short legs set the pace. But few recognize Marcus J. Borg, the graying guy in the wool cap, as the spokesman for a different approach to Jesus Christ.

Fish Wrapper Quick To Praise Liberal Entertainers Who Bash Conservatives

In her coverage of the Grammy Awards on Sunday night (titled "Dixie Chicks Sweet Revenge"), Luciana Lopez of the Dead Fish Wrapper could barely contain her glee about the five awards that the Dixie Chicks received for their CD "Taking The Long Way".

Time might not heal everything, but apparently five Grammys do the trick: The Dixie Chicks' kiss-off song, "Not Ready to Make Nice," along with their "Taking the Long Way" album earned the Texas trio an armful of trophies Sunday night, almost four years after their criticism of President Bush got them into hot water with the conservative country establishment.

Still Promoting Global Warming With Laurie David

Laurie David just won't go away. As I wrote about here and here, Ms. David wrote an op-ed piece in the Washington Post about how the National Science Teachers Association rejected her offer of 50,000 copies of The Inconvenient Lie (aka Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth"). However, as I wrote about in the Fish Wrapper, she forgot to mention the true facts.

More Profiles In Liberalism

Is it a coincidence that whenever the Fish Wrapper profiles someone, it always seems to be a liberal? Today's profile in liberalism is entitled The activist-minded professor, and is about Jules Boykoff, a political science professor at Pacific University.

According to the article, Boykoff is quite the Renaissance man.

Boykoff, 36, is a political scientist. He is a poet and social activist with an unquenchable curiosity. He played soccer for the University of Portland and professionally, and cheers for the Tottenham Hotspurs. He and brother Max researched media treatment of global warming, helping form the basis for the Al Gore documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth."
