Tucker Carlson’s Christian Privilege On Display

Tucker Carlson’s Christian Privilege On Display December 8, 2014

Tucker Carlson, one of the most irritating little twerps in existence, is upset at the idea that non-Christians get to put up holiday displays. He thinks Satanists should be banned from putting up displays alongside Christian displays because Christianity is a “legitimate religion” and Satanism is not.

x News host Tucker Carlson argued over the weekend that a Satanist holiday display should be banned from the Florida state Capitol where a Christian nativity had been erected because they did not practice a “legitimate religion.”

Last week, the Satanic Temple won the right to place a display of an angel burning in hell alongside other holiday displays in the Florida Capitol building after officials initially rejected it, saying the Satanic message was “grossly offensive during the holiday season.”

“I’m assuming that there aren’t a ton of Satanists in Tallahassee,” Carlson told Bible Based Church Pastor Darrick McGhee on Saturday. “I’m assuming there really aren’t any at all, and this is purely an attempt to stick a finger in the eye of Christians in Florida.”

“So the rationale here is that Satanism is legitimate religion,” the Fox News host complained…

“I mean, this is just an inability to draw reasonable distinctions between reality and what is a pretty offensive prank,” Carlson concluded.

The irony, of course, is that the Satanist display comes straight out of the Bible. And guess what? The government doesn’t get to decide what is a legitimate religion and what is not.
