The Babylon Bee is the world's best satire site, totally inerrant in all its truth claims. We write satire about Christian stuff, political stuff, and everyday life. We have been the premier news source through every major world event, from the Tower of Babel and the Exodus to the Reformation and the War of 1812. We focus on just the facts, leaving spin and bias to other news sites like CNN and Fox News. Unlike other satire sites, everything we post is 100% verified by Snopes.com.
Version 1.32 is like version 1.31 except it has the new additions only found in version 1.32. (For Apple's sake, this includes bug fixes and other performance improvements, especially for the iPad)
Ratings and Reviews
This is actually good christian media
A lot of Christian media is held back and hindered by the fact it has to meet many of the standards expected of it by christians, and the message it must push along with its goals in entertainment. To be labeled the “christian” version of something is often taken as an insult. But not the Babylon Bee. This is one of the funniest, most creative sites I have ever seen. It is relatable, and covers broad topics from the church to politics. It produces reliably funny content, and always makes my day. My only complaint is that there isn’t enough content produced a day. I have probably read every article, and heard almost every podcast. This isn’t a christian version of the Onion. This is a better version.
Great, when it’s working...
This app used to work, weeks ago. That said, at that point, there were inappropriate ads showing almost constantly — manga/anime characters making out, ads for ‘hot Arab women.’ I’d report them to Google, then get shown the same things over and over again. Within the last few weeks, first the favorites stopped working, then none of the articles would load. I have 100% WiFi and did try it on data. But it just won’t work. I contacted the developer and answered their questions. I hoped that this new update would solve the problem, but it’s worse than before. I can use the website on my browser of my phone. It’s just less convenient. Two stars because the content is great when it works. Minus three because it just doesn’t work anymore and the ads are so inappropriate. (I’m an adult, but I don’t want to see characters making out or half naked people. Show me ads for shoes or a barbecue — something inoffensive I can use.)
Developer Response ,
Sorry to hear you're having issues. We are releasing a new version of the app that will work with iOS 13 in the next day or two. I'd recommend that you uninstall the app completely, and then download that new version when it's available. As for the ads, this is a brand new app placement and we are working with our agency to clean them up as soon as possible. Thanks for the patience.
I once was lost, but then the Bee found me.
Wandering the desert of CNN, Fox News, and the National Inquirer, I stumbled upon Babylon. That is, the Babylon Bee. Let’s get one thing straight: They ONLY speak facts. That’s all. Nothing is made up. Sure, the New York Times sometimes gets it right, but when compared to the reliable sources at the Bee, they might as well go back to their day jobs protesting the election four years ago and blasting stay-at-home moms for serving their family. What makes the Bee stand out, you say? One word: Truth. Justice. America. Okay that was three. But if the Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one, why not those three words? They’re synonymous. Just do yourself a favor and download the app. You won’t regret it.
