The Florida minister who was recently told that he can no longer be the chaplain for a public high school football team is getting the full martyr treatment on Fox News, first with a Todd Starnes column and then with an interview with the merry band of morons on that station’s morning show. The stupid is strong with this one.
During a Thursday interview with Fox & Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Pastor Troy Schmidt explained that he used to pray with football players at Olympia High School until the district banned him.
“Well, I don’t think they’ve read the Constitution,” he said. “It’s pretty clear that they cannot prohibit my free expression of my faith or the free expression of the coaches to express their faith. They’re telling us to be atheists, when we want to say this is what we believe. And we want to express it freely like the Constitution says.”
Only on Fox News can you say something that galactically stupid and not get challenged on it.
