Moloch’s Revenge: Fox News Fires Christian Extremist Todd Starnes

Moloch’s Revenge: Fox News Fires Christian Extremist Todd Starnes October 2, 2019

Too extreme for Fox News: Todd Starnes, a deplorable Christian extremist who hates gays, Muslims, Democrats, and the separation of church and state, has been fired by Fox News.

The Wrap reports:

TheWrap has learned that Todd Starnes’ contract at Fox News is not being renewed. The host will no longer be working at the network, its website, or its premium subscription service, Fox Nation.

His removal comes a few days after he said on his radio program on Monday that Democrats do not believe in the Christian God and instead may worship Moloch, a pagan god often associated with child sacrifice.

Starnes is paradigmatic of the Christian extremist. In the past the conservative Christian propagandist has argued that Jesus would love American snipers who kill  “godless” Muslimsblamed the Devil, pornography, and church state separation for the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida; and claimed that Disney is persecuting Christians.

Earlier this week Starnes was caught agreeing with Trump-loving Pastor Robert Jeffress that Democrats worship Moloch, the demon god of the Old Testament.

The following is a collection of reactions to the news via Twitter:

After news that he had been fired became public, Starnes tweeted the following:

I’m proud to call myself a gun-toting, Bible-clinging, Deplorable Trump supporter. I am a rock-solid conservative and I do not compromise my beliefs. Period.

Bottom line: Fox News fires Christian extremist Todd Starnes.
