Fox News is God?

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983)

The term fear (or one of its variations) is mentioned 524 times in the Old and New Testaments of the King James Version of the Bible. In the Koran, it is mentioned 197 times. In both Holy books, fear is an emotion that we are to feel towards Allah (or God) and no one else. (The Family of Imran 3.175; The Cow 2.41; Mathew 10:28)

The term fear (or one of its variations) was mentioned on the FOX News website 100 times between 11/13/2004 and 12/08/2004. That's a lot of fear. The Holy Books instruct us to fear God... what did Fox News give us to fear? Was it God? Well only if your God is small pox, terrorists, the effects of obesity, dirty bombs, etc.

By some accounts, it took 1300 years to completely write the Bible.

It took more than two decades to complete the Koran.

In just one year, Fox News will have given us more to fear than two Holy books combined. By my estimation, we should fear Fox News. Does that make them our God?

Hey-
Thanks for visiting my blog... I dunno if Fox News is God, I'm more of the persuasion that they're the preeminent Whore of Babylon... but you make an interesting case... Perhaps if Fox News mentioned "Hell" or "Heaven" more often it would be enough to give folks their daily Old-Testament-Divinity fix...
anyways-
peaceout
