Dan Barker was invited onto Eric Bolling’s Fox News program to discuss an issue in Texas regarding a nativity scene put up on public property in the front of the City Hall, and when he offers up his opinion he’s given the boot.
Eric Bolling, how about actually tackling the issue at hand and not getting so emotional and taking personal offence at someone else’s opposing view to your religious beliefs and shutting things down then and there? As soon as you do that you’ve lost the argument. How weak…
I don’t understand how one of the world’s biggest news groups can get something like this so abysmally incorrect. A simple google search is all that would be required to get this correct. And considering someone sat there designing the computer graphics for the below picture that would’ve taken hours, how on earth do they have an excuse?
Also, they can spell Bulgaria and Romania but use ‘Serb.’ for Serbia…?
Wouldn’t have believed it until I saw it myself, but apparently Fox News have finally done something news worthy including Christopher Hitchens in their ‘Who We Lost In 2011′ segment.
Here they go twisting yet another story back on itself to make Christians look like they’re being hard done by the rest of the world. Fox News reported yesterday on a Californian couple that had been fined $300 ‘for holding a home bible studies’ in their house.
A religious legal non-profit group, the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI), has taken up the case saying the fine was a violation of religious freedom. – Fox News
Uhhh bullshit… It had nothing to do with impinging on their religious freedom at all. Not until you dig a little further into the story do you realise the reason they were fined had nothing to do whatsoever with their practicing of their religion in their own home. They were fined because they were regularly having assemblies in their home with 50 or more people without first getting a permit from the council to do so. A spokeswoman for the city of San Juan Capistrano explained the real reason behind the fine to the Los Angeles Times.
The Fromm case further involves regular meetings on Sunday mornings and Thursday afternoons with up to 50 persons, with impacts on the residential neighborhood on street access and parking.
I’m sure she would’ve also told Fox News the exact same thing if they’d bothered to actually ask her…
Now the couple have got themselves a lawyer from the Public Justice Institute… HA! He’s stated that the city…
…needed some kind of rational basis to justify their rigid intolerance towards this family for having a Bible study in their home.
He says the couple should have their money returned, and that the PJI intends to defend the couple’s home Bible study all the way to the US Supreme Court if they have to. Good luck to you sir! I think both the couple and Fox News need to wake up a little…
