Culture War Defeat For Fox News' Father Jonathan Morris
Reported by Priscilla - June 1, 2011 -
Back in February, it was reported that prayer space for Wiccans and other earth centered religious folks was being completed at the Air Force Academy. Naturally, Fox News' resident Catholic priest, Father Jonathan Morris, who is a weekly regular on Fox & Friends and appears on a number of other shows, provided his imprimatur to the official Fox News message; i.e. that this was a very bad thing. Morris, who, with only a few exceptions, provides religious (Catholic, that is) perspective on the news was quoted on Bret Baier's "news" program's "Grapevine" segment. According to Baier (One of many Catholics in Ailes' Fox stable) Father Jonathan Morris (Baier didn't note that Morris is on Fox's payroll) "calls the prayer space an example of 'politically correct cowardice by bumbling bureaucrats' adding, 'behind the smoke and mirrors of the supposed high demand for 'Earth worship prayer circles' is a small group of activist atheists in America who seek first to water-down and then to abolish the name and face of God from the public square.' (Guess the little holy father doesn't know that earth centered religions aren't atheist) Anyway, the outdoor worship space was just dedicated. An Air Force Academy rabbi (clergy rarely, if ever, seen on Fox) says it's great. What say you Father Morris!
