There is a bible verse in which Jesus tells his followers that when the pray they should "go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret." But this advice is not heeded by Fox's Eric Bolling who, in not wasting an opportunity to remind us of his devout Catholicism, is more like the "hypocrites" who "love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others." For Bolling, his public prayer persona is all part of his mission, from God and Roger Ailes to earn his Christian soldier stars by smiting atheists at every turn. Devout Catholic Bolling, who has no problem maligning President Obama and Muslims, also constantly reminds us that he really hates "mean" atheists. Last week, Bolling must have earned more time out of Purgatory with his good, Christian attacks on atheists who, contrary to Bolling's good Christian paranoia, aren't, contrary to the Fox News propaganda meme, trying to destroy Christian tradition.
On Christmas Eve's Happening Now (an alleged "news" show), Bolling hosted an Oklahoma state legislator who has introduced legislation to "protect" Christmas and, for diversity's sake, Hanukkah. Bolling reported that Oklahoma lawmakers are pushing back against holiday "PC" (Another popular Fox meme) by putting Christmas back in the classroom with either Nativity scenes, Christmas trees, or menorahs. He didn't mention that the bill would allow public school classrooms to display these things only if symbols from other religions or secular symbols are present. (And of course, there would be no issue with Islamic symbols...) Bolling said that the bill is "a great idea" and that he "loves it."
Oklahoma GOP representative, Ken Walker, spoke of how Texas recently passed a bill to protect "our core beliefs of Hanukkah and Christmas in our public schools." (So screw you Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, atheists, etc... To Bolling's question of whether there was any pushback from atheist, Walker said no because they realize that "the giant has woken" and "we're not taking it any more." He attacked atheist groups for "spreading misinformation" with "fear, intimidation, and name calling." (Hahahah, he described the Fox "war on Christmas.") Bolling requested Walker to let him know "if any atheist groups give you a hard time, we'll give them a hard time." (Right, Jesus told his followers to go forth and kick atheist ass!)
Last Friday's The Five, during what could only be described as a Christian fellowship chat fest, Bolling, once again, reminded us of what a great Catholic he is before launching into what has become his trademark attack on atheists. The first part of the discussion was about how the success of recent religious themed movies proves that "religion is making a comeback" because, according to the twice divorced but very Catholic Kimberly Guilfoyle "people are hungry for something beyond what is offered in the materialistic, sexually charged culture of what dominates our lives." (This, on a network that loves it's Victoria's Secret models and women, like Guilfoyle, with maximum leg exposure!)
After talk of how faith is growing in America (despite polling data that says that more people are identifying as being religiously non-affiliated), Bolling was asked if he believes that religion is coming back. He provided some Christian fellowship: "Yes, I certainly hope so. I wear my religion on my sleeve. You all know it. The whole thing with the candle.It's great. Thank you for that. It's great to see Russell Crowe, like one of the top actors, making a movie like that. I'm just thrilled to see. It looks fantastic as well. "The Bible", the mini-series, was on fire. Bill O'Reilly's "Killing Jesus."It's great. Fantastic. I'm thrilled about it. Thank you for that. Happy."
After the oh-so-Christian Andrea Tantaros railed about "smut" in our society (Fox News?) and how students, at every level, are being denied the awesomeness of bible stories, Bolling proved his Christian bona-fides with another baseless attack on atheists: "They're trying to stifle free speech. They're trying to, you know, clamp down on the free practice of religion, and when you see are a movie like this, it basically says we'll fight back. You know, we have a right to talk about it, to practice it, to be entertained with it."
Only in the bizarro world of Fox News are Christians, who represent the majority of Americans, so persecuted. But watch out, atheists, cuz Eric Bolling isn't taking any at atheist shit.
Nothing says the peace and joy of Christmas than a Fox News attack on atheists! Ya think!
I thought I might have to pull the truck over while I laughed my head off!
I’ll assume that he’s raving about Crowe’s new movie, “Noah” which has been panned by christian critics for being “environmentalist wacko”. Not that Bolling could understand anyway.
