More Proof That the Media Just Doesn’t Understand Christianity

It’s Easter weekend. Naturally the news shows are lining up their Sunday guests and what a list they’ve put together.  According to Rachel Zoll on twitter-

NY Cardinal Dolan will be on `Face the Nation;’ Rick & Kay Warren will be on `This Week;” and Franklin Graham is showing up on `CBS Sunday Morning.’

These three represent Christianity in the same way that Marcion represents second century orthodoxy.  Can’t the networks do better?  Don’t they know anyone they could ask?  Have they no contacts in the theological world?  Or do they just feed the fame machine and pander to the ignorant?

Come on media, ask around.  There are better.  Way better.
