April Fools, Easter, and the Babylon Bee

On our Easter program, we talk a bit about how this year's Resurrection Sunday is also April Fool's Day.   So, we talked a bit about the trend today of fake news, and even fake fake news, with satire sites like The Onion and the new Christian satire site, The Babylon Bee.   

The Babylon Bee has become the best Christian satire site on the web, it's as good as any satire site of any genre, if you get the jokes anyway.   You need to be well churched to understand much of it.   It's worth a good laugh and it also makes a very good point about several issues that we are challenged with in church ministry.

For any satire site, one of the best things that can happen to you is when a legitimate news outlet, famous person, or fact-checking organization quotes your story as if it were serious.   This crowning achievement happened recently for The Babylon Bee when Snopes fact-checked a Babylon Bee article suggesting that CNN bought a large washing machine to help "spin" news stories toward their agenda.   Snopes took the time to inform it's readers that this story was false.  Here are the links we mention on our program today.

Congratulations Babylon Bee!

With all of that, we encourage you to know the truth that you need to know this Easter.   Our Easter show sermon is called "What is Truth?"   You can listen here:
