NPR Shows Its "4th Point of Contact"

Just heard:

"If John Paul II is likened to a rock star and the Messiah, now you have John the Baptist - reserved, not forward with his positions, a behind the scenes type of leader."

Uh, who is she talking about? Here is a different picture of the real John the Baptist:

"For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her. For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife. Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not: For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly."
- The Gospel of St. Mark, Chapter 6, Verses 17-20.

Yes, the media is still full of liberal secularists. I shouldn't be surprised.


  • That sounds like a poor analogy born out of ignorance of Scripture. You know how it is, pop-culture sees people as celebrity or non-celebrity.

    I must say though, that I reject the notion that the Pope is in fact the Vicar of Christ. The Bible clearly teaches that there is a priesthood of all believers (I Peter 2:9), with Jesus as the High Priest (Hebrews 7-8)
