Why Why I never buy The Age or the Sydney Morning Herald

I never buy The Age or the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH- otherwise known as Support Marxist Holeheartedly)...

oh well... occasionally i do. The Epicure section and Travel and Real Estate sections of the Fairfax Press are usually very impressive.

But anyhow one reason why I don't buy them is because of their strong anti-Christian, pro-Marxist, anti-American, anti-capitalist stance.

Say what you want about Christianity, America, capitalism etc... but all three have contributed immense good to our societies. What has Marxism produced? 100 million plus people killed- Stalin's mass murders, Gulags, Mao's mass slaughter of innocents, Pol Pot, Castro, ... etc... add it up. Have they produced viable societies- NO! They produce police states. They produce poverty, hunger and misery both physically, spiritually and mentally. Their rules are so bloody bad - that people are willing to jump barbed wired fences, mine fields, and swim across shark infested oceans to escape.

Anyhow check this piece of crappy journalism. The Age's reviewer is doing Narnia. And this is what she had to say:

if you can't get it - click here:

"Of all the elements of Christianity, the most repugnant is the notion of the Christ who took our sins upon himself and sacrificed his body in agony to save our souls. Did we ask him to?" [and then later] "Why? Because here in Narnia is the perfect Republican, muscular Christianity for America - that warped, distorted neo-fascist strain that thinks might is proof of right."

Oh Good grief!!!! How can the death of Christ dying to save us - be considered by any measure "Repugant"??????" I really don't know how to handle this sort of diatribe. But this sort of garbage makes me soooo glad I don't subscribe to "The Age" or any of the other Fairfax papers.

I also hope that the reviewer doesn't offer similar responses to doctors, surf lifesavers, nurses, paramedics or "good Samaritans" who go out of their way to help him at any stage in the future.

But its this sort of irrational vile hatred that drives me away from reading the Age, SMH newspapers. It sickens me. And I hope that if you read this- you will choose not to purchase them too.
