Megyn Kelly Continued Defense of WTC Cross Includes Smear of Atheists - NewsHounds
While Fox News is always willing to defend the Christian cross, they have no problem attacking atheists who seem to have replaced Muslims and “illegals” as the personae most non gratae. So when Fox is able to combine their patented memes of persecuted cross with evil atheists, they’ve hit the meme jackpot. Last September, Fox had full guns blazing in defense of the placement of the “Ground Zero Cross” (a piece of a surviving steel cross beam, from the WTC, that became an object of Christian worship) at the Ground Zero museum. Martha MacCallum freaked out about this “iconic source of hope.” Brian Kilmeade fulminated against the atheists who want the cross removed from the museum. Eric Bolling ranted about atheists who wanted to take away a “symbol of hope.” Megyn Kelly did two segments in which she admonished atheists who are “making people upset” about something that “isn’t religious” but “part of history.” Yesterday, Kelly continued her cross defense in what could only be called a tale of two guests in that Kelly mocked her atheist guest while allowing her Christian guest to defame atheists. But this is straight “news” and not “opinion.” Right?
Kelly reported the backstory; i.e. that ground zero museum is “sticking to their symbol” asking a judge to toss out lawsuit which demands that the cross be removed. (Fact Check - they’re only asking for the removal until equal space is given for non-Christians) She showed a photo of the “unforgettable image” of two steel beams shaped like a cross, “an inspiration in the middle of a tragedy.” She noted that the cross is part of the museum and then raised her voice as she described how a nasty, bad atheist group has sued the museum over the constitutionality of the cross.
