The Bible doesn’t affirm the right to life or prohibit abortion, says a Yale Divinity School professor in disputing that the Bible contains the “major theses of religious conservatives.”
These are not provocative statements by an obscure grad student desperate to get tenure as a professor. These are the claims of a Yale Divinity School professor, made in a recent podcast that Yale University sent out to its alums under the teaser, “Is The Bible Relevant For Today?”
John Collins, Professor of Old Testament Criticism at the Yale Divinity School, declares he does “remedial education” for the religious, rushing to attack religious conservatives and specifically Christians:
“Biblical values are not what most people think they are…most people think that the Bible is very rigid and that it propounds the favorite theses of religious conservatives both Catholic and Protestant…”
Collins, a former Roman Catholic priest from the Order of the Holy Ghost Fathers, then declared war on the unborn.
“Does the Bible affirm a right to life,” the Yale professor asked, rhetorically, then answering: “[A]nd, of course, it doesn’t.”
Collins went further, claiming the Bible does not prohibit abortion because it “doesn’t actually address the question,” nor does it prohibit homosexuality because “it says very little about” it.
The Yale professor, who claims to have rejected the chance to work on Mel Gibson’s “Passion of the Christ” after reading just a few pages of the script, described his academic work as studying the Bible “historically” by “try[ing] to imagine a real life situation in which this might have happened.”
“People think they know what’s in the Bible and so they project onto it what they would like it to say” so Collins likes to “scrape off some of the varnish and get back to the real thing.” This is a constant theme from Collins, distinguishing between the Bible is silent on bedrock tenets of Christian faith but, not surprisingly, on current targets of the Campus Far Left. “[G]reed and abuse of power” are the major problems in the Old Testament, which, he said, “you could take it down to Wall Street.”
Yet the historical context Collins relies upon seems quite selective. Most (if not all) of human civilization in the time of Christ was rudimentary and barely above barbaric level, hardly resembling anything like the orderly civil societies of today. Collins attacks “faith” while exalting “evidence,” yet he appears to suggest an anthropological approach to the Bible. Combined with an approach which requires “evidence” to support any tenet of Christian doctrine, Collins implies that “Biblical values” don’t include Christ, but cover everything else within the wide range of then-contemporary “human nature.”
That would include, of course, Sodom and Gomorrah.
In short, at Yale, it’s “anything goes.” As long as the Campus Pharisees approve.
Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
