It's important to read the Times, I think, if only to keep up with the latest liberal pathologies.
I'm a media critic so I'm required to read the New York Times as part of my job. I'm pretty used to seeing overt bias, agenda-pushing and basic errors of fact. But what I read there yesterday shocked me.
In an essay written by an actual Humanities professor and edited by the prestigious folks at the Times, the following paragraph was included:
After all, the relationship between human reader and “animated” book has been forged over centuries. The Bible, perhaps the first book to be characterized in these terms, was thought to be the material embodiment of Jesus Christ, “a living and breathing likeness of Him” in the words of Erasmus. Since Christ was understood to be the carnal manifestation of the Scriptures — the Word made flesh, according to the literary scholar James Kearney — the Bible was reflexively endowed with human properties.
According to the New York Times, the famous Gospel of John was apparently authored by literary scholar James Kearney.
The things you learn by reading the Times, elite and prestigious paper of record!
