Oh it’s on…
As a result, Gannon has promoted, via email, a release put out by the Christian Newswire, in which they say, “Had Milbank actually witnessed the late afternoon event, led by Dr. Corinthia Boone, an African-American woman with a vibrant ministry in Washington he would have seen every chair occupied with attendees united in praise, prayer and worship.”
Gannon tells FishbowlDC:
Dana Milbank dishonestly reported on the U. S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon. Despite being aware of information to the contrary, Milbank chose to mock the event and the participants as well as attack me personally. It is yet another instance of the Washington Post’s long history of hostility toward members of the Christian faith.
In 1993, the Washington Post ran a front page story that Christian conservatives were “largely poor, uneducated and easy to command.” It would appear that the Christians Milbank sought to offend are going to fight back. It’s about time.
