    A lightning bolt would be more ironic.

    A Fox News pundit has to be about the lowest form of life there is in the news world.

    I'd just ignore it.

    He's just seeking attention.

    Why is it noteworthy every time someone on Fox News says something insane? At this point, everyone should recognize that they are NOT, in fact, a news station, but a 24-hour tabloid. If anything, they should be compared to the Weekly World News, who brought us such breaking news as "Bat Boy Found in Cave" and "Chupacapra Exists." Both Fox News and the Weekly World News have the term 'news' in their title, both claim to be accurate without question ("Fair and Balanced" vs "The World's Only Reliable News Source") and both say insane things just to have people listen.

    Seriously? How could anything compare with the report "Bat Child Found in Cave", which spawned one of the most culturally relevant musicals of the 20th century?

    Replace Fox with MSNBC, replace Atheist with Christian, replace fighting with forcing, and Fox "News" pundits would be having a fit and demanding someone be fired.

    To refute the quote in the first post of this thread:
    Hitler's Religious Beliefs

    Hitler is the wrong person to hold up as the example of Atheism gone amuck.

    The headline is "Fox pundit: Atheists fighting government prayer are basically ‘Hitler’"

    If the headline was "MSNBC pundit: Christians forcing government prayer are basically ‘Hitler’" then Faux News would be having a hissy fit and demanding resignations.

    The problem with Fox News is that we know that, but the people who actually watch it don't. They really do think it's news. And they believe what they are told.

    That's nowhere near true, though.

    If that's true then they will be out of business in the not too distant future because that's a rapidly shrinking demographic. Might this election cycle be the last dying breath of the far right?

    why is it that if christians force their faith on others (abortions no help for the poor forced prayer at meetings and so much more) is is perfectly fine and is good. even though it far more resembles hitler.

    What, that Fox wouldn't be throwing a fit if someone on the left compared Christians to Hitler?

    This is true, conservatives tend to be very one way when it comes to their "righteous" religious views.

    That MSNBC has, to my knowledge, ever had a pundit on that said anything similar to that. :\

    Never said they did. It was a hypothetical. IF MSNBC had a pundit say that.

    I'm just saying, MSNBC is a little more reputable than Fox, I doubt they'd ever do that. :cool:

    (Not much more, btw ;))
