In the alternate reality of Fox News, Christianity is constantly under attack. When a Christian alleges that their First Amendment "free speech" rights are being violated, Fox validates their complaints as examples of attacks on Christianity. Allegations of violations, by Christians, of the First Amendment's "establishment clause" are not given the same warm support; but rather treated as - wait for it - attacks on Christianity. Fox is so desperate to prove that Christianity is being besieged by the forces of satanic secularism that, as shown on this morning's Fox & Friends, they established an allegation of anti-Christian bias when none has been proven. And in addition to promoting the patented Fox persecuted Christian meme, they also hit the patented Fox disdain of public education which hates Jesus and free speech. A propagandapalooza.
Rather than being part of the Fox & Friends "Fight for Faith" series, this morning's victimhood segment was part of the "The Trouble with Schools." Clayton Morris asked the viewers to "try to wrap your brain around this." (Fox viewers have brains?) He reported that while students in a Texas school are allowed to read the "Hunger Games" in class "but they can't read the Bible." Cute lil Christian gal, Anna Kooiman chirped "banned, yeah, huh." While the chyron established, as FOX FACT, that a Texas 2nd grader was "Told She Can't Read the Bible in Class," Kooiman reported the student was told she couldn't read the Bible during free reading time "and that the book should stay at home." While Kooiman acknowledged that the school has made it clear that the Bible is *allowed, she framed the propaganda message of the piece: "Is this evidence of a larger attack on Christianity in our schools?"
Morris introduced Fox fave, Kelly Shackleford who is from the Liberty Institute, a right wing group that specializes in cases which allege discrimination against Christians - so unlike the Freedom From Religion Foundation, is blessed by Jesus and Roger Ailes. Morris prefaced his question to Shackelford of "how this all happened" with "the school has no reversed its position." This appears to be a lie because the school asserts that, as far as they know, this didn't happen in the first place. He doubled down on lie when he asks how a teacher could do this WHEN IT HASN'T BEEN PROVEN THAT A TEACHER DID THIS!
Shackleford, who that past December penned a Fox News website opinion piece, "Yes Virginia, There Really is a War on Christmas," presented, as fact, what the Christian child alleges. The chyron reinforced the agitprop as FOX FACT: "Losing our Religion, Bible Banned from 2nd Grade Free Reading Time." He claimed that the school "quickly corrected this." (Note - none of the sources for this story indicate that the school admitted that this happened). He said this is a trend and discussed a recent case in which a child was stopped from praying at school. LOL - Shackleford's group represented the persecuted Christian family, whose case was pushed by Fox's Todd Starnes, and it turned out to be bogus!
Kooiman referenced the horror of challenges to "under God" in the Pledge and other supposed examples of besieged Christianity, such as Christian students not being able to meet at the flagpole to pray - another lie because that has not been stopped but there are restrictions. The chyron read "Bible Ban, Evidence of Free Speech Battle in Schools." She asked what this "says about our society." (Uh, that people aren't drinking the Kool Aid anymore?) Shackleford waxed poetic about "religious freedom" and the First Amendment which, on Fox, doesn't pertain to atheists especially on Christian holy days. After his whine about how students should educate themselves on their rights, Morris validated Shackleford with "well said" and asked for the Liberty Institute website which has information on religious rights.
I've seen a lot of persecuted Christian propaganda on Fox & Friends; but this one, which is based on an unsubstantied allegation that was made into Fox Fact, just might be the top - or the bottom...Ain't no party like a persecuted Christian party and Fox & Friends will bring it!
*The school statement reads: "During a student's independent reading time, students are required to read a book that is "Just Right." A "Just Right" book is when the student can read most of the words, comprehend the text and that the book is appropriate for the type of text or genre that is being taught. As such religious material, including the Bible, that meets these guidelines would be permissible for a classroom assignment and/or independent reading."
State law requires public school students in Wisconsin to say the pledge each day in class. Madison East did not begin complying with the law until last month.
When the school in Wisconsin Madison East finally started leading students in the pledge, it included a number of revisions. First, she said, the words “under God” were stripped, followed by the removal of the entire phrase “one nation under God.” Finally, she explained, school officials switched the word “God” for “peace.” Nevertheless, Madison students are still being used as pawns in the leftist ploy to eradicate God.

These clowns don’t behave like christians.
Look at Billy, he calls himself a christian, yet the aging clown curses like a sailor, and chases a woman who’s not his wife.
Wretchen Gretchen couldn’t keep her hands off a married man when she was at another tv news station.
Legs Ailes, aka Barbie Meghan posed half naked for a magazine.
Nixon trainee Ailes is another one who curses like a sailor. Someone needs to wash his mouth out with soap.
Those bimbos dress like hussies with their short skirts and low-cut blouses.
Bundy’s best friend Hannocchio is not a christian. He only plays one on tv. He’s known to throw around a few coarse words, and he has a fetish for young blonde women.
Morris-he’s not worthy of the title Father-pals around with foul-mouth Ailes. We know who he worships, besides the dollar bills. A phony prophet.
Lizzy is like a canine that barks all night. After awhile it gets on your nerves.
The rest of them, and we include the suits and producers, are not the bright stars in the solar system.
All this lying on a weekend that brings the christian world two MORE saints! Where’s their religiosity? Pagans!
