ESPN’s Random Act of Feminism? by Selwyn Duke Posted June 20, 2013

tn_eva_tempted.pngIt’s really hard to know today where the stupidity ends and the propaganda begins. MSNBC recently made news by labeling infamous segregationist George Wallace a Republican during a recent television broadcast. Now ESPN has followed suit, with a random act of feminism. 

 

On the sports network’s Friday US Open golf telecast, there was a short retrospective piece on golf great Lee Trevino’s gag at the 1971 Open at Merion, where he tossed a rubber snake at opponent Jack Nicklaus right before their playoff. The piece’s narrator mentioned that it was history’s second most famous serpent story, next to that of the Garden of Eden. This was accompanied by Eden imagery, which certainly enhanced the work’s artistic quality, so the association made sense. But then the piece took an interesting twist:

 

The narrator closed with, “And Eve got dominion over Adam.”

 

Huh?

 

Does ESPN have a feminist in the machine? Could it reflect a confluence of ignorance and the henpecked-husband syndrome, where cultural illiterates couldn’t imagine a man having dominion in an opposite-sex relationship? Is it that the capons at ESPN have eaten the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and liberalism and think that they, too, can be like God and change even Scripture if so inclined? Of course, it was quite likely a joke, a play on how dominated by women the Western man is. But just for the record, here’s what Genesis 3:16 actually states about who got dominion over whom after the Fall: “To the woman also he [God] said: I will multiply thy sorrows, and thy conceptions: in sorrow shalt thou bring forth children, and thou shalt be under thy husband's power, and he shall have dominion over thee.”

 

Now, I realize that sports journalism would freeze over before ESPN would present this matter accurately in this politically correct world. But the reality is that nothing at all needed to be said about it, as it had no relationship whatsoever to the piece’s subject matter; it came out of the blue and was completely gratuitous. Yet ESPN decided to throw in revisionist theology from NOW’s Bible Tales, anyway. It’s just another example of how, as Orwell would say, we live in a time of “universal deceit.”
