Fox News host Gretchen Carlson complains: Courts listen to non-religious minorities

Amid a segment on The O’Reilly Factor about the so-called “war on Christmas,” Fox News co-host Gretchen Carlson suggested Thursday night that the problem was caused because courts were willing to listen to complaints from religious minority groups.

She explained that courts ordered religious displays at public buildings to be removed “because we listen now to the less than 1 percent in society that feels this way.”

Fox News host Gretchen Carlson complains: Courts listen to non-religious minorities

Again we see Fox News pushing for a theocracy in America, with a blatant, disgusting misinterpretation of the Establishment Clause. This isn't just Gretchen Carlson's idiotic rambling -- it's a constant theme at Fox.

The right wing has gone completely nuts in the past 10 years. Whatever "principled conservative" might have meant originally, it's an extinct species now.

Fox News host Gretchen Carlson complains: Courts listen to non-religious minorities

From Wiki:

• A 2004 BBC poll showed the number of people in the U.S. who don't believe in a god to be about 9–10%.

• A 2008 Gallup poll showed that a smaller 6% of the U.S. population believed that no god or universal spirit exists.

• The most recent ARIS report, released March 9, 2009, found in 2008, 34.2 million Americans (15.0%) claim no religion, of which 1.6% explicitly describes itself as atheist (0.7%) or agnostic (0.9%), nearly double the previous 2001 ARIS survey figure of 0.9%.

• The highest occurrence of "nones", according to the 2008 ARIS report, reside in Vermont, with 34% surveyed.

• According to a study conducted by Gallup in May 2010, 16% of Americans declared they have no religious affiliation.

Roughly anywhere from 6 to 16 percent are non-religious which can include atheists. If one were to stick with the lower figure of 1.6% I would like to remind them that Jews make up 1.2%, Episcopalian/Anglicans at 1.1% and Mormons are at 1.4%.

I think I"m gong to puke

Why do you think that is?
I think women see animals as children and—for them—children aren't allowed to possess sexuality. These women are very eager to castrate everything. They think that men are always brutal and forceful and they want to protect children and animals from them. They think we’re raping the animals, but I believe there are nearly as many women zoophiles as male zoophiles.

Tell me about the animal brothels.
A Danish newspaper wrote in 2005 that Danes were coming to Germany for these animal brothels. Although the head association of animal shelters in Germany said they didn’t know anything about animal brothels, lots of people thought there must be some. A year later, Parliament asked if the search had any results but the police said they didn’t find any. We don’t know of any and, to be honest, if anyone’s going to know, it’s probably us.

And how are you, so far, today?

Bill O’Reilly Blames Gays For The ‘War On Christmas’

Fox News really doesn’t seem to have anything better to do in December than continue to manufacture the silly “War on Christmas” and then take real umbrage to the fake campaign. Despite Jon Stewart’s epic dismantling earlier this week, Bill O’Reilly continues his reverse-crusade, and now he’s implicating women and LGBT people in the process. Last night, he and Bernard McGuirk, executive producer of Imus in the Morning, revealed that they actually believe there’s a war against Christianity that’s being led by champions of the right to choose and LGBT equality:

Also see First Amendment to the United States Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Another GOP proposal to waste time and money in their war against the poor

Ohio Lawmaker Proposes Government Drug Tests For Welfare Recipients

An Ohio Senate subcommittee has agreed to hear the case for making drug tests mandatory for welfare recipients, reports the Columbus Dispatch. The bill was introduced over a year ago, but now contains revisions including $100,000 allotted to rehab and treatment programs. Another provision modifies the original requirement by only testing people who admit on the application that they have used illegal drugs. Applicants must pass the drug test before they can receive benefits.

MSNBC just reported that Morsi has delayed the beginning of voting on the constitutional referendum for out of country citizens...perhaps an indication that he is buckling under pressure and will delay the Dec 15 national vote.

Maybe the people who work at Fox News would be happier if we built them a time machine and sent them to John Calvin's Geneva. They'd get Christianity everywhere like they've always wanted. Seriously get the fuck over it. We protect the rights of minorities in this country both religious and non-religious alike and that's the way it should be.

He seems to think that if Obama had not spoken highly of Morsi after the ceasefire talks Morsi would not have taken his subsequent actions on the Egyptian constitution. There's also an underlying conspiracy theory that Obama is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in the background and an idea that cutting off US military aid would stop this.

Considering the amount of money that goes from the US to Egypt, there's some undeniable influence, but what should be done with that influence is a huge question. Withdrawing all the money is probably not in anyone's interest, except in the very very short run.

Yeah, and it's not like US military aid prevented Egypt from toppling Mubarak. It's just a silly excuse. Egypt ended up with Morsi because they elected him. Elections have consequences and all that jazz. Sometimes while looking at this I do think that Morsi could be worse. That's the fear of course from the Egyptian people on the street. It's much like the USA though in that the greatest support of Morsi and the MB is outside of Cairo and Alexandria. It's a "red state."
