I detect an anti-Christian bias on Alternet. I think they enjoy publishing articles critical of Christianity. (BTW, I am an atheist.)

For example, the following article has a deceptive title. The title suggests that Christians have higher rates of porn addiction than non-Christians. But the body of the article says otherwise.

Porn Addiction in the Christian Community: Why are Rates so High?

The article 9 Truly Evil Things Right-Wing Christians Do says “The Christian persecution complex is absurd.”   Calling Christians “truly evil” and then saying they have a persecution complex is kinda ironic, don’t you think?   (The author of the article says she did not choose the title.)

I’ve seen other articles on Alternet critical of Christians.

Mind you, I agree that there are many terrible things that conservative Christians have done (The article 9 Truly Evil Things Right-Wing Christians Do has a good summary.)  But one shouldn’t judge all Christians by the actions and views of the conservative sects.  And one shouldn’t overstate the case.

Someone should do a more thorough analysis of Alternet’s articles.   I notice they’re good at coming up with catchy titles about interesting topics.

For one of your articles, too, they chose a title that was more anti-Christian than what you wrote.

Someone should research this bias …..<h1 class=”node-title” datatype=”” property=”dc:title”>Porn Addiction in the Christian Community: Why Are Rates so High?</h1>Porn Addiction in the Christian Community: Why Are Rates so High?</h1>Porn Addiction in the Christian Community: Why Are Rates so High?http://www.alternet.org/belief/9-truly-evil-things-right-wing-christians-do
