John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

CNN Falsely Labels Overwhelming House Resolution Condemning Anti-Israel Boycotts As ‘Divisive’

Recommended Posts

CNN labeled the House resolution condemning anti-Israel boycotts as “divisive” in its headline and on Twitter, despite the vote being 398 to 17.

The House of Representatives voted Tuesday to approve a resolution which opposes boycotting against Israel. Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan were two who opposed the resolution. Despite it passing decisively, with only 17 votes against the measure, CNN labeled the action as “divisive” and faced major pushback on social media.

CNN reporters Ashley Killough and Clare Foran described the vote as having been “expected to pass with overwhelming bipartisan support.” Although the vote did pass overwhelmingly, which is not seen often, the news outlet has not changed its headline or issued a retraction.

Many took to social media to express confusion with the word “divisive.”

Ian Miles Cheong, managing editor of Human Rights, tweeted that CNN used the word “because those 17 are antisemites who call themselves progressives.” Youtube host of “The Factual Feminist” and author Christina Sommers also tweeted against using the word “divisive.” She wrote that “The vote was close to unanimous.”

Erick Erickson, a writer for Resurgent, used CNN as a “good example” of “clickbait” and “sensationalism.”

“Seriously, why do that?” Erickson tweeted.

For those who cover the media, clickbait, bias, sensationalism, etc. this is a good example. The vote was 398 to 17. It was definitionally not "divisive," but CNN reports it as divisive. Why? Seriously, why do that? cc: @brianstelter https://t.co/725JvgcvJu
