,..as the most consequential and deadly lie machine in the history of American media–FOX News–begins to face the music for their filthy lies about the 2020 election, let’s review just how deeply committed this lie factory–and its audience of MAGA antichrist religion devotees at war with the Pope and the gospel–are to being wilful, intentional People of the Lie. For, of course, the reason FOX acted as it did was because its audience made extremely clear that if FOX would not feed them a slurry of lies, they would go to OANN, Newsmax or somebody else who would. FOX hosts and the entire corporation absolutely lied their heads off–knowingly and with malice aforethought. They even sought to punish those in the corporation who did not. But they did it, above all, because their audience of good white conservative MAGA Christians, spewing excommunications against all Christians who opposed them, furiously wanted the lies, not the truth. And the vast majority of this minority cult of lies in American Christianity have not only not repented, but have doubled and tripled down on their lies, because they still hope to pull out a culture war victory of authoritarian tyranny against those they hate.
This is a deeply evil cult committed to lies while obscenely posing as disciples of Jesus who is Truth. Jesus called them out two thousand years ago:
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (Jn 8:44).
