NY Times Promotes Attack on Christians Who 'Shield' Bill O'Reilly

Written by  Tim Graham

The New York Times war on Bill O’Reilly continues even after Fox News pulled his show. This was a rich angle in the op-ed section on Tuesday: “The Mistake Christians Made in Defending Bill O’Reilly.

In the paper, the headline was “Christians Who Shield O’Reilly.”

The pull quote was “Evangelical leaders tend to resist taking sexual assault claims seriously.” Christianity Today editor-at-large Katelyn Beaty lectured:

Institutions plagued by sexual assault scandals tend to look alike: They are usually insular organizations that resist external checks and revolve around authoritative men.

This characterization fits Fox News, which recently fired its host Bill O’Reilly after sexual harassment allegations against him (and pressure from advertisers) mounted.

But it is also applies to the white evangelical Christian community. This group is not a monolith, but its social hierarchy often functions like the military, a university or private business. It’s not a coincidence that conservative evangelical leaders tend to resist taking harassment and assault claims seriously....

Within the ranks of conservative church leadership, this default empathy for powerful men is coupled with tone deafness for victims.

Beaty began by citing Christian radio host Eric Metaxas tweeting: “The news about Bill O'Reilly is tremendously sad. His fairness, boldness & radical commonsense on the show have been a blessing to millions.

The Agitation and Propaganda organization of the Democrat (Marxist) Party consists of our Main Stream Media: ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Herald, and literally hundreds of local newspapers, television and radio stations; then we have Google, Facebook, and Twitter in the hands of our “progressives”; on the other side there is only Fox (sometimes) and American Spectator, National Review (also sometimes). And now we are witnessing the attacks on Fox personalities by the far-left creeps.

I think Boston Herald is not one of them. It's Boston Globe. How about TV and Cable? CNN is the archetypal left wing Marxist fake new outlet.

No one that is a real Christian would even read the NYTimes. They are simply preaching to the choir from the far, far south.

I don't think any American woman would just come forward and accuse Bill O'Reilly of sexual harassment. He did it and the truth is always bitter than the bile. In this present generation, you'll never find your way if you follow some heads of churches. Those Christian leaders shielding him are blind.

I don't believe O'Reilly would have taken that chance, He had too much to lose. Notice the women came forward only after the first woman complained, almost as if they were smelling the money, or someone important was paying them to do it. Jesus was the most perfect person on earth, yet look what the people did to him.

we have NOT YET seen any conclusive PROOF......just accusations. It seems that for whatever reason people, including some female repubs, assume that the accuser(s) are telling the absolute truth and there is no room for any question as to their veracity.

Remember, It was Alleged Sexual Harassment, not assault. You idiots. Pay attention.

OReilly and fox have been doing for years exactly what your complaining about. OReilly got exactly what he deserved. .

It is time to send the Liberal/Leftist mainstream propagandist at the N. Y. T. A message we are going to stop supporting your lies and Character Assassination pig manure and Leftist trash stop supporting these liars and their garbage.

My god - does the New York Times have no shame at all? Let us just lump all the Christians together and/or lump everybody at Fox - I mean really???
If I said all females who work at the Times are adding to their bank accounts by working in strip clubs or all males have to take testosterone - Really?
A person can miss O'Reilly's programs without dismissing whatever wrongs he committed.
We know now that Soros has funded organizations to try and end Fox - and one way is to pay others to complain (true or falsely) to advertisers. The next target is Hannity. - I hope he sues !! l

Boycott the New York Times in all of its forms, hit them in their pocketbook because the almighty dollar is all that they understand.

The left has always used sexual allegations to destroy and denigrate the right or any opponent(Alinsky tactic). Look at HRC and BC, charges leveled,like water off a ducks back. Nobody on the right has the same persistance and resolve to pursue the left and see it through, and it appears most allegations against the left are true. The left persevere's until the lies appear to be truthful and get their result at any cost. The right appears to be totally spineless. When are you going to get hot and return fire????

Where were the left when Bill Clinton was assaulting all of his victims? They use things like this when it fits their cause. I had been outside today and came back in to get a drink of something cold. When I came in I saw a couple of minutes of daytime tv today where a very large black lady was supposedly on the phone with somebody on a talk line and she was pretending it was Bill O'Reilly. I would love to see all of their lives laid bare for the world to see. I wonder how many of them live perfect lives? They have some of the worst offenders in their own ranks but they hide behind the MSM. I will never watch another minute of news from their propaganda sites.

The New York Times is a secular, atheistic entity that actually admitted they probably didn't understand Christians in this country. Why does this article even get any attention?

Not only satisfied with worshipping the gigantic log in its own eye, the New York Times again resorts to their usual fake news reporting by fundamentally transforming the splinter in someone else's eye to cover for their perversion and immorality.

It seems to me that the rape culture exists among Muslims; and Blacks at least as much if not more than among White Men and especially Christian White Men. The writer of the article is ignorant.
