- Backlash After Sarah Sanders Slammed for Christian Faith: ‘It’s No Wonder Nobody Trusts the Media Anymore. It’s All Garbage’
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been targeted by establishment media outlets not only because of the messaging she provides on behalf of President Trump.
It’s also because of her strong Christian faith.
WND columnist Mychal Massie wrote recently, “God-fearing righteous women are not threatened by the likes of those who mocked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and those who thought it was OK to do so.
“Truly independent women who strive to honor God understand that they are above such taunts. Those who attack them do so because they know if they lived to be 500 years old, they would never ‘attain the excellency’ they envy in Sarah Huckabee Sanders.”
Now the New Yorker has published a piece putting in its own spotlight on Sanders and her faith. The magazine promoted the article in a tweet. “Sarah Huckabee Sanders attends a D.C. church that is an affiliate of Hillsong, the global megachurch that teaches creationism and intelligent design. Sanders, asked if she shared these views, said, ‘I believe in the Bible.’”
The Daily Caller reported people were not happy with the New Yorker’s handling of Sanders’ faith. The profile referred to Sanders as Trump’s “battering ram” and went into depth about her evangelical beliefs and the pastoral role of her father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
Twitter member James Brady reacted to the New Yorker’s tweet: “Come on, why do you have to go here? Everyone looked the other way at BHO’s church and pastor for years, but now it’s cool? It’s no wonder nobody trusts the media anymore. It’s all garbage.”
