The Democrats’ war on Christianity continues to escalate.
Many liberals have always had an uncomfortable relationship with religion, but that discomfort has morphed into hostility.
Now NBC aired one video that shows just how far their anti-Christian bias has gone.
The classic game show Jeopardy! has been in the news a lot recently.
Professional gambler James Holzhauer revolutionized the way the game is played with an unprecedented hyper-aggressive style that saw him smash almost all of the money records.
However, long-time host Alex Trebek has also made headlines.
The 78-year-old Trebek recently announced that he had pancreatic cancer, which has a high mortality rate among cancers.
Prior to undergoing treatment, Trebek said:
“With the help of your prayers also, I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease.”
It looks like his prayers were answered.
In a stunning announcement, Trebek said he’s taken a major turn for the better.
At this juncture, it seems as though he’s beaten the long odds for survival; his tumors have already shrunk by over 50%.
Trebek said the following:
“The doctors said that they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory. Some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent…It’s kind of mind-boggling…The doctors are so excited, just beside themselves with joy.”
Trebek certainly didn’t downplay the miraculously rosy prognosis he’s gotten thus far.
“I told the doctors, this has to be more than just chemo. I’ve had a couple million people out there who expressed their good thoughts, their positive energy and their prayers. The doctors said it could very well be an important part of this.”
There Trebek explicitly said he believed prayer was a factor in his successful battle with an aggressive form of cancer.
However, NBC felt that Trebek’s message needed to be edited.
NBC Nightly News cut out Trebek’s mention of the positive energy of prayer.
CBS’s Face the Nation did the same thing.
All references to prayer had been scrapped from the reporting.
While this might seem harmless, it speaks to a broader issue.
The left doesn’t want to have anything to do with religion, especially in the midst of the raging battle over abortion.
The Democrats and their media allies want to paint all Christians as bigots who want to control women’s bodies and discriminate against gay people.
The reality is Christians simply want to be free to worship how they want to without liberals cracking down on them.
But that’s getting increasingly more difficult.
Christian bakers and florists are constantly being harassed by activist leftists who want the government to force these religious people to violate their beliefs.
Vice President Mike Pence has also become the left’s favorite whipping boy, particularly by openly gay South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Mayor Pete turned coat on Pence, who had always been kind and gracious to the small town mayor.
However, Buttigieg saw an opportunity to dogpile on devout Christians and get his name out there, and he took it.
NBC’s actions to edit the Trebek tape showed exactly how the left feels.
They don’t want any trace of religion.
The more people that believe in God, the less they believe in government.
That poses a major challenge to the left, and frighteningly, they’re taking steps to rectify that.
