MANIPULATION: Autistic Child Banned From Church

We are emotionally manhandled every day by a media whose sole purpose is to sell advertising. “News” equals exploitative data (war, politics, etc) and controversy (as in this tidbit). Can you hear this story without being led to wrong conclusions? The underlying message from the media is, of course, that religion doesn’t serve the needs of the people. Notice, however, that that underlying message CONTRADICTS the story itself, which is that religion SHOULD serve the needs of the people. It’s called “divide and conquer.”
