Once upon a time, GQ was a decent magazine. Even yours truly read it; I even had a subscription. It was a great place for men to get tips on fashion and grooming that we desperately needed.
Those days are long gone. GQ, like so much of the established media, has gone into full-blown, liberal meltdown mode. When they’re not hailing un-American former NFL player Colin Kaepernick “Citizen of the Year,” they’re finding new excuses to bash the Commander in Chief.
I’m not sure how radical politics has anything to do with men’s fashion. But much like the rest of the publication world (including comic books companies), unrelated magazines have jumped on the far-left bandwagon.
In a recent issue, GQ really jumped off the deep end when they recommended books all cultured men should read. And which books a truly modern man would skip. Naturally, the most popular book in history was on the nixed listed.
Now Christians are firing back.
From USA Today:
GQ magazine, a bible of “grooming” tips, gadget suggestions and style advice, has sparked a social media conflagration by calling the Christian Holy Bible “foolish, repetitive and contradictory” and placing it on a list of “21 Books You Don’t Have to Read.”
“The Holy Bible is rated very highly by all the people who supposedly live by it but who in actuality have not read it,” novelist Jesse Ball writes in the magazine. “Those who have read it know there are some good parts, but overall it is certainly not the finest thing that man has ever produced.”
Instead, Ball recommends reading Agota Kristof’s The Notebook calling it “a marvelous tale of two brothers who have to get along when things get rough.”
…”Even if you don’t believe this is an inspired word of God, in the last 50 years 3.9 billion have read the book,” Fox News religion contributor Father Jonathan Morris told Fox & Friends on Sunday. Morris also labeled the inclusion as “just foolish and a shame.”

Uh, what? Instead of reading in the inspired Word of God, men should read some stupid novel about brothers? I guess GQ’s definition of being modern and culture also means being completely void of common sense and spirituality.
But hack Ball is right about one thing. The Bible isn’t the finest thing man has produced. Because mankind did not produce it. Sure, many wise men have been vehicles for the message. But we all know who the real author is (hint: God).
Among the many believers who fired back at GQ’s disgraceful article was spiritual heavyweight Franklin Graham.
GQ magazine just included the Bible in “21 books you don’t have to read before you die.” Wow—they couldn’t be more…
We know why Ball attacked the Bible. As a third-wave, far-left Socialist, he’s threatened by the traditional gender roles advocated by the Bible. Not to mention it’s central theme of mankind’s dependency on God. As a rabid secular humanist, he can’t let people have faith in God!
Of course, a few others made the obvious rebuttal:

I just heard GQ Magazine just Bashed the Bible!!!
The Bible is God's Holy Word.
I really don't think I'll be buying anymore GQ Mags.
This Act by GQ is a total disgrace to the Christain Community.

I’d agree. GQ went from being a smart, timely publication about fashion and culture, to yet another sad, desperate liberal rag worthy of the dumpster.
Are you going to join in and put an end to your support for GQ and other mainstream media publications?
