Last night, ABC aired Time’s 100 Most Influential People of the Year, which the U.K. newspaper The Daily Mail labeled the ‘wokest’ yet.
There are people all over the world, from various backgrounds and faiths, who continue to make a great impact on culture and society, but Time Magazine decided to mostly ignore them in favor of supporting individuals that fit certain liberal and progressive criteria.
Some of those featured in Time’s list of the worlds’ 100 Most Influential People include gay-identified soccer star Megan Rapinoe; Service Employees International Union leader Mary Kay Henry; Megan Thee Stallion, who participated in the vulgar song “WAP” with Cardi B; founders of the Black Lives Matter movement; and Billy Porter, an actor who is perhaps most famous for wearing a dress to the Oscars.
The list also includes a surprising number of Chinese-backed individuals who likely contributed to COVID-19’s spread throughout the world, like Xi Jinping, the highly controversial leader of China who is leading the genocide against the Uyghur people; and Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Chinese-backed leader of the World Health Organization who may have helped China coverup the spread of COVID.
Based on those chosen for the list, Christians and conservatives, especially female conservatives, need not apply.
Here is a list of seven Christians and conservatives that should have made Time Magazine’s 2020 100 Most Influential List:
Kayleigh McEnany – The current White House Press Secretary has made a name for herself due to her intelligent and biting responses to liberal media outlets. A graduate of Harvard Law School and a devout Christian, in an interview with CBN, she said, “I believe God put me in this place for a purpose and for a reason.”
Franklin Graham – The CEO/President of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has become a powerhouse in the conservative and Christian communities. The son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, he is leading a prayer march in Washington D.C. on September 26.
John MacArthur – The California pastor of Grace Community Church is currently defying COVID-19 regulations regarding worship services, despite immense pressure from the state and local authorities.
Nick Sandmann – The Covington Catholic High School student came to national prominence in 2019 after he was videoed in a Make America Great Again hat while a Native American activist was beating drums in his face. The video was taken wildly out of context by the mainstream media, who labeled Sandmann as the aggressor in the situation. He settled multimillion-dollar lawsuits with media outlets earlier this year.
Judge Amy Coney Barrett – On the shortlist to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a passionately pro-life and an orthodox Catholic with seven children, including two adopted from Haiti. Due to her faith, she has already come under attack by the mainstream media.
John Crist – Everyone needs a bit of comedy, and John Crist offers that up to Christians in spades. With videos focusing on Christian Alexa, finding a parking spot at church or the Chick-fil-A employment process, he cleverly pokes fun at aspects of the Christian life in a way that’s fun but never profane. In 2019, Crist faced allegations of sexual misconduct, for which he apologized. After a period of time away from the spotlight, Crist reemerged this summer on YouTube.
And one dishonorable addition: Jerry Falwell Jr. – The former leader of Liberty University experienced a spectacular fall from grace earlier this year as details of his personal life and sexual proclivities became public. It’s a sobering reminder that as Christians, we are held to a higher standard and that power and money can’t hide someone’s sins forever.
