NBC News cuts passenger off, won’t allow bible verse to be quoted

Amazing. One might call it a “sudden disinterest” with this reporter as soon as one of the “poop cruise” passengers he’s interviewing begins to describe why their experience was better than most. Basically, she started to quote Joshua 1:9 and the reporter completely cuts her off like he was afraid of what would happen if she quoted the Bible on NBC. And clearly he had the time to let her speak, as he went on and on after that.


Joshua 1:9 – Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

    Oh, yeah, let’s not mention “God” or the “Lord.” Maybe that’s what has happened to our nation – we’ve eliminated God when He’s most needed. But we don’t want to offend anyone else and what they believe in, but Christians…aw, who cares what they believe!!!! After all this is not a Christian country according to the muslim in the White House!!!!

    • No, the people haven’t eliminated God, just a small faction of communists who have managed to take over our major institutions, including the media.

      Does this reporter have a twitter handle, we ought to mock him on Twitter and ask him why he is afraid for someone to mention God.

      Spot on M8.

      Your point is well taken Army_Pilot1967. When the mainstream media continually attacks God and the American way of life, why does the mainstream media still stay mainstream. If nobody watches, they cease to exist. Everybody complains and moans about the constant attacks, but still supports those doing the attacking. This is the easiest war in history to win. STOP WATCHING and you win without firing a bullet. Americans will destroy their own way of life by supporting the enemies of this country by keeping them relevant and the mainstream media knows it.

        I cancelled my satellite in 2008 after the media installed Obama in the White House.

        If every conservative did this, the entertainment industry would pay attention real quick.

        20 million conservatives * $70.00/month * 12 Months equals $16.8 BILLON DOLLARS PER YEAR

        That doesn’t include movie theater boycots, magazines, music, books, etc.

        At this point, if you are a conservative and you are subsidizing this material shame on you! You are part of the problem! The excuse that one doesn’t watch NBC doesn’t cut it. Part of your cable/satellite bill goes to NBC in exchage for the service provider carrying their network.

        I hate being like this, but we are playing on a tilted field, and we don’t have much time to turn this thing around. We may already be past he point of no return.

      • Army_Pilot1967

        I agee with you, Don, and that’s why I quit watching MSM newscasts years ago. They have an agenda and they’re pushing it relentlessly, but I don’t have to be part of it, or listen to their fragmented reporting of news stories. I just don’t get why so many people cling to every word those liberals spout anyway. Think for yourself, don’t rely on the MSM news media for anything, check multiple sources and you might come close to understanding what is going on in any given situation.

    • al

      You’re right on target Army guy. I’m Air Force and it is the same for me as far as where this country is headed. I still don’t understand why our Congress lets this Marxist Muslim in the White House get away with the direction he is heading our nation. Somebody with some serious Moxy needs to stand up for what this country stands for and stop this guy before he goes any further! Look at what he is doing with the “Homeland Security”. We already have a military…we don’t need one that is aimed at disarming our citizens and taking over our freedom….

      • bshade

        Exactly, but remember obama stating that we need a civilian security force just as powerful and well armed as the military? Strange things are happening. We need to look at those executive orders that are being passed….

      • Army_Pilot1967

        Anybody know why Homeland Security is buying millions of rounds of ammunition? I know for certain it won’t be used on our southern border to stop the wave of illegals flooding our country!!! So who/what/how is that ammunition going to be used? I’m having trouble finding any ammo for my personal .9mm….Homeland Security must be buying it up.

  • bjohnson55

    Good for that young lady, there are more of US out here then THEY want to acknowledge. 😉

  • notebene

    Even Satan recognizes that there is a God. Satan loves dill-holes, like this reporter, makes his job much easier! I wonder if he would have cut off a muslim as quickly?

    • Army_Pilot1967

      I doubt if he would cut off a muslim like that….it might OFFEND him/her, and we can’t have that now, can we? He might get a talking-to from one of obama’s minions. Or maybe obama would have someone from NASA contact the offended muslim and apologize on behalf of the US. I’m still trying to figure out why NASA should be involved with an outreach program to muslim nations. Oh, because our fearless leader is one of those, that’s why!!!!

    • badbadlibs

      oops…didn’t see your post! I was wondering the same thing….

  • It’s because if people already have a saviour, they will not look for salvation in government……shhh, don’t let people know.

      “My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism” — Karl Marx

      • Wow- I should really read a copy of the Communist Manifesto…..I need to improve my foundation for understanding the commies today- Alinsky was boring to read and I never finished Rules for Radicals-

        Judging from your quote, they both either hate religion and/or love evil. Odd how these things converge.

        • TexasPGRRider

          In the early sixties a lady found a list of goals Communism had planned for the overthrow of the USA. She sent them to her Congressman to read into the Congressional Record. It made National news. I was quite young at the time, but remember years later coming across the information again, and realizing just how many of those goals have been fulfilled….

          • I read that about a year ago! Amazing and scary how many goals they’ve reached. Commies are about as patient in taking over as… islamists. gee, imagine that. I just posted a link to Stewie for you. 🙂

          • ryanomaniac

            Could you please post a link to that please? I would like to see that. Thanks.

        • Here Ozzie. This is what Texas was telling you about: http://rense.com/general32/americ.htm

      • TexasPGRRider

        Wonder what ol Karl is doing Right NOW ???

    • TexasPGRRider

      THAT Stewie, Is Quite PROFOUND !!!!

  • Conniption Fitz

    QUITE A CONTRAST between how MSNBC handled the passenger quoting a Bible verse and how FOX handled it. (Click Newsbusters link to see.) The FOX news reporter was polite, interested and asked what Bible verse brought the family the most comfort and allowed them to quote it.

  • Love that girl made sure to repeat the verse reference again as she was being cut short..

  • This is why they cannot hear the Word of the Lord:

    1 Tim 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
    1 Tim 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

    I’ll bet if he thought they were going to quote an Anti Christ like Obama, he wouldn’t have cut them off.

    • 57thunderbird

      Great verses! Thanks.

  • poljunkie

    Last night while flipping channels CNN let a family with a young girl recite many verses.

    The reporter even brought the family back to talk to them again in another segment.

    A Bible quote on MSNBC!!! NOOOO, don’t let that happen. Do you know what will ensue?!? Oh, the travesty, the unbridled desecration of it all.

    “You cursed brat! Look what you’ve done! I’m melting! melting! Oh, what a world! What a world! Who would have thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness? Oooooh, look out! I’m going! Oooooh! Ooooooh!”

      LOL, I love how cheerful these girls were after going through what they went through! The joy of the Lord shone through!

    • 19Robes50

      If the Bible helps these people overcome their trials, what is the harm? The reporter approached her! Did she curse? Was she confrontational?

      The reporter/MSNBC should be ashamed of them selves. It’s the times we are living in, I guess.

  • 57thunderbird

    A Bible that is tattered and torn is indicative of a life that isn’t.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      so true.

  • badbadlibs

    Wonder if she quoted the book from hell, the Koran if he would have been so short!

  • fishmonster

    The left hates God or anything related to any religious beliefs or activity.

    • badbadlibs

      They’re convinced they’re superior to all that God has to offer…that is, the One True God…the phony gods get their respect.

  • M_Minnesota

    Kinda reminds me in 87, The Minnesota Twins won the World Series. when everyone was shouting and having a good time a local Reporter for Channel 9 went up to Gary Gaietti (sp) and asked him “Isn’t this the most wonder thing that has ever happened to you?”

    Gary responded; “No this is not the greatest thing that has happened to me. The greatest thing was when Christ came into my life and he became my savior and Lord.”

    All the reporter did for the next few seconds was “Hammana, Hammana, Hammana,”

    • Conservative_Hippie

      LOL, that sounds awesome!

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Hey M, I actually collect christian athletes signatures where that autograph with a bible verse. I do not have Gaietti’s yet. I’ll look him up!

    What is so hard to understand? If God is in control, then the Progressives are not.

      Progressives = Communists

      Marxists > Communists > Progressives > Liberals > Progressives

      Homosexual > gay/lesbo/etc

    I despise that reporter, how dare he cut that woman short after the ordeal that she went through! She gave of her time to this reporter, the least this scum reporter could do is let her speak. The nerve!! It makes me so angry, arghh!

    If the two ladies expressed hatred for the cruise company, MSNBC would have given them all the time they wanted. What a freak show is the media! The young lady still told the viewers to look up the Joshua 1:9 verse as they were rudely dispatched with a phony laugh from the P.C. intolerant liberal jerk interviewer.

  • What a talentless turd the MSNBC Humpty Dumpty hack is. No, really.

  • QuickDraw_53

    it used to be that after someone would go thru things like this and start to quote the bible the person doing the interview would just say AMEN. now they cut them off like it is a sin to say sch things. this country is going down the tubes fast

  • TLaMana

    That was just rude.

    Now if the verse had been from the Koran, NBC would have flown in Steven Spielberg to direct the interview…

  • Jaels_Song

    One good thing that could come out of this is that the young woman repeated “Joshua 1:9… ‘look that up.'” It might have gotten people to crack open their bibles and start reading.

    Obama was so concerned about that video and offending the m. community and yet he doesn’t care about offending all the Catholics in America.

    My favorite verse: All it all came to pass.

  • He didn’t mean to cut her off, but says he was told to wrap it up. However he had plenty of time to make multiple redundant comments after he cut her off. Hypocrite much?

  • RKflorida

    This is a perfect reveal of what is wrong. Every problem the USA has is caused by the rejection of the one true God and his son Jesus Christ. This video reveals that rejection and the fear the tools of Satan have for scripture.

    SMH…we should not condemn him but instead pray for him. Jesus’ loves all of us! Even those who reject Him, it is not His desire that any should parish & be separated from Him for eternity….although many will by their own choice.
