Secularists shouldn’t go on Faux News

| »

Even religious ones. For example, just look at how the Rev. Barry Lynn, Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, gets treated by Fox News’s America Live anchor-bimbo Megyn Kelly when he argues in favor of the recent (yet long-awaited) court ruling that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. It’s just another example of how “Fox News” and “Fair and Balanced” should really only be used in the same sentence if you’re being facetious.

In addition to the (typically) profound historical and legal ignorance displayed by the airheaded Kelly – hell, she’s practically the personification of the “dumb blonde” archetype (which, granted, could be extended to most other women working at Fox, creepily enough) – the sort of scorn and disrespect she heaped onto the Reverend Lynn, as though the bona fide ordained minister were some type of baby-Jesus-stabbing anti-religious zealot or something, only serves to beautifully illustrate how and why no rational – and especially, no secularist – person should ever go on Fox News unless they actually enjoy getting treated like crap by the brainless idiots who pass as “journalists” there. (This, of course, is apart from the amusingly stupid anti-atheist smears she made sure to include during her “interview”, remarks that I’m sure I have no need to point out and much less excoriate.)

Keep fucking that chicken, Fox (and Megyn Kelly).
