The Fox and Friends morning show on Wednesday was missing the almost infinitely stupid Steve Doocy, but Eric Bolling admirably filled in for him as he and the equally clueless hosts discussed two recent church/state stories, the Navy pulling Bibles from their hotel rooms and the AHA telling a Georgia school they can’t have football coaches proselytizing students.
“It looks like two groups might not get the Bible,” Hasselbeck announce on Wednesday’s edition of Fox & Friends. “There’s a war on religion going on, you know it. And right now Bibles are booted from Navy base guest rooms, and an atheist group is telling a Georgia high school football team to punt the prayers.”…
“I don’t know how having a Bible in a hotel room in a drawer is forced on anyone,” Fox News co-host Eric Bolling opined. “You don’t want to read it, leave it in the drawer. How is that implicating the Navy in any way, shape or form?”
“You would think that a federally run organization would be able to make their own decisions,” co-host Brian Kilmeade agreed. “But its atheist organizations that are pushing back on that.”
No, a federally run organization is limited in its decisions by this thing called the Constitution. You might have heard of it.
After reading comments from a few viewers who accused atheists of wanting to have more rights than Christians, Hasselbeck connected the situation to violence in Iraq.
“You know, in light of what’s going on in the world and the persecution of Christians right now, how close do we want to get to eliminating religious freedom in the globe?” she asked. “Particularly here.”
Eliminating religious freedom? I bet the sky is lovely in the world she lives in.
