The Media Crusade

by on Sep.29, 2012, under Culture, History, Media, Religion, Technology, War and Terrorism

When mainstream media consisted of the printed page, and most people were illiterate, the church gained converts primarily by sending volunteers out into different parts of the world to persuade the native populations they encountered. God usually sides with the biggest battalion, and the crusaders weren't always successful, but they've mostly prevailed over time. Despite that, they still keep up the battle. The methods are more subtle now, but still pretty destructive to the societies in which they've infiltrated and make laws to suit their religious agenda.

Freehold, Iowa, home to Landover Baptist, is perhaps the most evolved example of the new Crusade.

The Church of England, anxious to show its relevance in the 21st century, has begun a campaign to raise the awareness of Jesus Christ and it looks like they've taken a page from the Landover Baptist godly media handbook.

Instead of religion at the point of a sword, they're simply trying to make Jesus Christ seem more human, they claim.

Church leaders admit the controversial campaign by Christian media group ChurchAds.net won't be to everyone’s taste, but hope it will make the Christmas story appeal to the younger generation, which, evidently, is amused by a doll that wees.

The previous year's campaign didn't resonate with the target audience either.

Arun Arora, the Church of England’s communications director, said: "We need to be re-telling the story of Christ’s birth in ways which engage creatively and positively with the public’s interest."

We suggest they try again: And skip the adolescent years.
