The Media Research Center, a group that monitors media coverage bias, reported that few of the major news outlets covered the story, and even those that did give it time, did not reveal that the shooter was a volunteer employee at the Wash. DC LGBT Community Center. Imagine if the shooter had been a conservative Christian attacking an LGBT office. The media would have been all over the story as a hate crime—calling it domestic terrorism.
It is not my intention to lambast media bias, but to point out another sign of our times. In our culture of open-mindedness and tolerance, those who are out of sync with the mainstream morals (or lack thereof) will be considered intolerant. And intolerance is intolerable. “Woe to those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter” (Is. 5:20).
