“Religious media” is much like “religious university” – sort of oxymoron. The purpose of media in general and newspapers in particular is to convey information and opinions about the world around us. Religiously-oriented media and newspapers often convey information and opinions, but about another world.
Want some examples? Sure you do. Here are some references to the world around us, quoted from some recent Israeli ultra-Orthodox Jewish newspapers:
From ‘Family’, April 2013: “The heads of the regime … who desire to convert our religion, are worse than those who have murdered us along generations”; and also: “A state is no more than a piece of cloth on a stick”.
From ‘The Fountains of Salvations’, December 2012: “The modern heretic is he who applies scientific criteria to the research of our sages’ texts … We should dream of replacing the shitty intellectual clothes with sacred clothes”.
From ‘Faithful Tent-Peg’, January 2013: “All residents should avoid entering stores whose owners use non-kosher cellular phones”; and also, approaching the elections in Israel: “Many have not yet received the formal message to the voter. The Ministry of Interior directs citizens to the forbidden Internet”.
And last but not least:
From ‘Y.N.R. Center of Marriage and Family Studies’, a guide to the wedding night: “Put a towel underneath. In case of a question it will be easier to bring in front of the rabbi”.
