God wearily responds to Susan Duncan: “Stop reading Facebook and pay attention to what’s happening in New Albany — and BTW, can you cut the evangelism crap?”

The embarrassment compounds alongside the heightened evangelism, and the newspaper’s upper management remains rockheaded to the point of obliviousness.

Jeffersonville News and Tribune hits rock bottom as evangelism columnist Tom May argues for theocratic fascism, Pence-style.

You’ll recall that the proselytizer May typically gets not one but two weekly column slots. The columnist was right there yesterday with a potentially interesting “From the Catbird Seat” column about the weekend’s mass shootings, but even in this instance he managed to steer it toward Christian advocacy.

From the Catbird Seat: Shots in our darkness

 … In the midst of researching the horrifying information for this article, the words of Daniel Webster appeared in the Google search. “If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, I do not know what is to become of us as a nation. If the power of the Gospel is not felt through the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end.”

There’s co-opting headlines to peddle superstition, and then there’s just the plainly inane.

COLUMN: God reads Facebook, by Susan Duncan

… The meme personally attacks, albeit in lame fashion, a hardworking, intelligent young woman elected to Congress. Post what you will, but if you want to be more honest and true to your values, be more purposeful in what you share, and more diligent in monitoring comments on your page.

God must be bedeviled by what His followers post on Facebook.

That’s right, an editorial expressing outrage about memes on Facebook, in this instance one attacking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Bad things on social media?

Think so?

Now THAT’s a revelation (win wink, nudge nudge).

Lots of bad things going on locally, too.

Are we ready yet to talk about the amount of money passing annually from Gahan to the News and Tribune via the city’s propaganda contractor?

Wait, what’s that?

You say the newspaper is listening and making changes?

Yeah. Thrilled.That’ll help, won’t it?
