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.

Even Profiles Of Conservatives Have To Be "Moderate" For Fish Wrapper

I've mentioned a few times that I wonder if the Fish Wrapper would ever do a profile of a conservative, since it seems that they only profile liberal loonies like Jules Boykoff. Well, they finally managed to do it, but of course, it was about Vicki Berger, a "moderate" Republican. Translation: a Republican who is almost a Democrat. You can tell where the piece is going right from the beginning.

SALEM -- It's not every day that Oregon's Democratic governor personally thanks a Republican legislator for following the courage of her convictions.

Apparently it's only a good thing for Teddy when your convictions are for socialism and higher taxes.

Condemning Christianity and Being Hypocritical At The Same Time

Today, Stephen Beaven of the Dead Fish Wrapper manages to kill two birds with one stone: promoting the homosexual agenda and hammering Christians (labeled as "fudamentalists" in the article) in one article, all (of course) under the guise of journalism. This week the Fish Wrapper is doing a series of articles on people "who experienced a big life change this year." The other three articles are on:

  • A man who charted dramatic weight loss
  • An immigrant who returns to college
  • A supermarket manager who became a teacher

Today's article - entitled Lesbian teen sees activism as "my job" - is about a senior at Cleveland High School named Sasha Villareal.

Glossing Over Bad Traits Good For Liberals, But Not For Conservatives

As I was reading the article and editorial in the Fish Wrapper about the death and legacy of Ted Hallock, a former state senator who was the primary force behind SB 100 in 1973, I couldn't help but notice how the Fish Wrapper tends to gloss over negatives about a person if they're a liberal, but watch out if you're a conservative.

For instance, from the editorial:

A lot of people remember Hallock as quick-minded, passionate and, at times, sharp-tongued. In his prime and beyond he brimmed with energy and ideas. Those traits made him a force for 20 years in the Oregon Senate.

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."
