In addition to being the mouthpiece for the US Council of Catholic Bishops, Fox's Peter Johnson Jr., also shills for the religious right which always has warm, Christian fellowship on Fox & Friends. The church of the perpetually victimized Christians (are there any other kinds nowadays?) are frequent guests on America's favorite morning chat show which never wastes an opportunity to promote what's hot in the world of Christian grievances (and they are legion). This morning, in what appears to be another iteration of Peter Johnson Jr's "Prescription" series, Johnson (not a doctor) editorialized on another Christian grievance which has been uncovered by Fox radio's intrepidChristian culture clubber, Todd Starnes who is on a mission from God to ferret out all the affronts to Christians by the forces of satanic secularism and, of course evil atheists. In this case (also covered on the very Christian Fox Nation), it's the requirement, by the U of North Carolina-Greensboro, that a Christian club must allow students with other beliefs to become members and leaders in order to get formal group accreditation from the school. But not to worry cuz Peter Johnson Jr has their back in this Fox enabled "controversy."
In his ongoing series in support of the position of the Catholic bishops, Johnson's one sided segments have been both "prescriptions" for "truth" and "justice." Today's segment was titled "prescription forAmerica" which is appropriate given that Johnson is taking a local issue and making it national. In his best isn't-this-f*&king-unbelievable voice, good Christian Brian Kilmeade reported the backstory. Johnson was so outraged that he actually stuttered as he said "you're not going to believe this at home." He was all a twitter as he reported that the school does not believe that the aggrieved group, "Make Up Your Own Mind" which is "devoted to abstinence, purity, devotion to scripture, the importance of life" is really a Christian group and "their ranks should be open to everybody." The agitprop chyron framed the official Fox message as a "Cavuto marked" question: "Assault on Religious Liberty?" He spluttered "this is absolutely nuts."
Kilmeade worked in the be scared of atheist argument, popular during all Fox & Friends discussions of the Vanderbilt non-discrimination policy, that atheists could "slide in." (Actually, I can't imagine any sane person who would want to be part of this group, but that's just me...) Kilmeade and Johnson's cry of "but why" was in stereo. Johnson reverentially read part of the group's constitution about their belief in Jesus. He emphasized the "shed blood" words. The background graphic was a great big cross and a bible. Johnson claimed that the government has decided "time and time" who is Christian and who is not. The chyron set the issue as a "controversy." Johnson then segued nicely into how "Obamacare" is saying that Catholic universities aren't really Catholic but priests and nuns are. (He was referring to the religious exemption that is part of the HHS and state policies regarding birth control coverage).
Kilmeade noted that the school declined to comment because they had not seen the law suit. He added that this is "like Vanderbilt." (Another obsession of Fox & Friends) Johnson responded that "it's ridiculous." Kilmeade said "good" when Johnson reported that Christian law groups, like the Alliance Defense Group, have stepped in to say that this is violation of First Amendment. Kilmeade said "thank you," when Johnson said that if you want to join a martial arts club, you should be interested in that. He added that if you want to join this club, you should be interested "in saving people from abortions."
Onward Christian soldiers, marching to Fox News, with the cross of Peter Johnson Jr, going on before. Roger Ailes the royal master, leads against the foe; Forward into battle, see Fox banners go! At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee; On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory.
