Zondervan and Thomas Nelson are two “religious” publishers owned by Rupert Murdoch and his News Corp. Why would the telephone hacking owner of the tabloid “News of the World” buy religious publishing companies? To make money? Or to distort a Christian worldview? Or both?
Zondervan says Murdoch’s connection doesn’t present an “ethical dilemma.” Of course it doesn’t, “Murdoch promotes Zionism throughout all of his Media venues” and as long as the “industry” is profitable, Murdoch will be happy. The same rules apply to Thomas Nelson.
A comment writer by the name of Jack at Christianity Today had this to say:
Murdoch does not control media for the sake simply of profit. He does so to control and manage content. As long as these publishers stay within ‘broad road’ churchianity, particularly anything supporting violently racist Zionism or so-called ‘Judeo-Christianity’ (an oxymoron if ever there was one), Murdoch will be happy. Any venture in the direction of hard-nosed anti-Pharisaic Christianity will not be welcomed or indeed permitted – the whole purpose of control.
