Why'd They Name it "The Daily Beast"?


What do "beasts" have to do with news?

The other day, I realized Newsweek, had a new website and news source they named "The Daily Beast"


This is what is officially claimed about the name:

The name of the site is derived from that of the fictional newspaper in Evelyn Waugh's novel Scoop.[1]

On November 12, 2010, The Daily Beast and Newsweek announced a merger deal, creating a combined company, The Newsweek Daily Beast Company.



Check out that last sentence..."The Newsweek Daily Beast Company"

But I find myself thinking something else, given the rising of the Beast system according to Bible prophecy.

There's the news of the Beast and the art of the Beast. I just read about this guy's drama today:

That is pretty sick. More art to shock. Well the picture is a false one and not truly of "jesus" but these folks just want to offend and show their disgust and hatred for Christianity. More soul-less dead art. Sometimes the art world really disgusts me, it's like half the stuff is being channeled if you 'know what I mean". skulls and other symbols. Nothing about beauty or goodness.

Good point about the tolerance thing. Imagine if it was a picture of another religious figure {I don't have to name the one here, who would cause the most rukus} from another religion, they'd be screaming from the rafters and it would never be allowed.

I read more details of the play elsewhere, they are so bad can't even write them here...include hatred for the old, and other sick stuff.

Looks like mostly Catholics were the ones protesting, given it was France, but the whole thing is absolutely disgusting.
