If, as Jon Stewart says, "conservative victimization" is the true genius of Fox News, Fox & Friend's perpetual parade of persecuted Christians makes it MENSA material. Whenever a Christian cross, on public property, is under fire, Fox & Friends has its back. Such was the case during last week's segment about a cross topped war memorial which is the target of a complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. At one point in the discussion, Foxblonde, Anna Kooiman provided reinforcement of the persecuted Christian meme with the Fox message for the day: "Clearly, the right to have a faith and to believe and practice and worship is under fire at the moment." Really?
Correct me if I'm wrong but the forces of satanic secularism aren't shutting down churches. There haven't been any pograms directed against Christians, have there? However, on the day before the Fox & Friends segment, a gunman killed six people and wounded four at a Sikh temple. Kooiman didn't mention that! But they did allow the mayor of the cash strapped city of Woonsocket RI to solicit donations to the city in the event that they need to defend the cross that is bravely carried by Fox & Friends.
“What influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; on many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instance have they been the guardians of the liberties of the people.” James Madison, 1785.
Joseph please notice the four indivduals I singled out – Inhofe, Bachmann, Vitter and Pence – are all doing the bidding of the treasonous filth that is the religious right. Bachmann can always be counted on to support some garbage bill such as “a celebration of our Christian roots.” I just don’t want anybody using the federal government to jam their religious beliefs down my throat, regardless of flavor, or dipping into my taxpayer pocket to further their agenda. And yes I will admit to prejudice; I despise the evangelical right. We need an effective two party system in this country and what we have is one lame political party and one religious party. And of course the mouthpiece for that religious party is Fox news.
For the record, JEWISH communities in this country have had their own religious courts that deal with purely religious issues.
I’d also note that the legislation you want passed is, in itself, a violation of the First Amendment’s guarantee of “freedom of speech” and “freedom of assembly.” It also happens to ignore that other part of the “no law regarding an establishment of religion”—the part that goes “or prohibiting the free practice thereof.” Additionally, I’ll guarantee you that the penalty you seek is a definite violation of the 8th Amendment.
For someone who’s so “concerned” about Sharia law, you certainly don’t seem to understand the Constitution of the United States very well.
Yes, we know. If you aren’t “christian” Fux Nuze wants you to know you are not wanted in Amerika.
“Leaders at an Islamic school in Lombard where a homemade bomb was detonated during a Ramadan prayer service said increased police patrols might provide peace of mind after a second attack in three days on a suburban Muslim organization.
âWe were not expecting this, but things are going around in different places,â said Mohammed Saeed, who is on the board of directors at the College Preparatory School of America. âIt’s not a comfortable feeling.â
Saeed said about 50 worshippers, including a few children, were attending prayer services at the school about 11:30 p.m. Sunday on the 300 block of West Madison Street when they heard a âbig blast like a bomb.â Outside, they found a plastic 2-liter bottle, which police described as a âMacGyver bomb,â near a window."
What about consciousness objectors paying for the US military? How come they never bring that up?
