The sheer frequency of mistakes about basic Christian teachings by the so-called mainstream media is amazing.
In 2013, the Times misreported that Easter is the celebration of Christ’s ascension into heaven. It isn’t. It celebrates his resurrection from the dead, after which Christians believe he spent forty more days on earth before his ascension. In 2014, the Times reported that St. Patrick is known best for banishing slaves from Ireland. He is not. The legend holds that Patrick, a former slave in Ireland, banished snakes from the island. The Times misreported that same year that many Christians believe Christ’s body is buried at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. No self-professed Christian believes that Christ is buried there, let alone anywhere else on Earth.
