Bogus Battle

Henry Ford, the famed industrialist and notorious anti-Semite, once pontificated that Jews were ruining Christmas.

“The whole record of the Jewish opposition to Christmas...shows the venom and directness of [their] attack,” Ford carped in an early 1920s work he titled The International Jew: The World’s Foremost Problem.

The automaker went on to detail various localized Jewish “attacks” against the popular holiday.

Defending Discrimination: The Religious Right Is Unhappy About Americans United’s New Project To End Religion-Based Refusals

This week, Americans United launched a new initiative, Protect Thy Neighbor (PTN), which is intended to stop religious zealots from using “religious freedom” as an excuse to discriminate against others. Unsurprisingly, those who are intent on discriminating against LGBT persons and others were none too happy about AU’s announcement.

Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins took to one of FRC’s many publications to denounce AU’s work as evidence of Christian “persecution.”

Putrid Pundits: Bill O’Reilly, Ben Stein Call For More Religion In Public Life

The Religious Right is still trying to sell Americans on the idea that merging religion and government is just the thing to turn this country around in a hurry, and now they’re getting some assistance from two media personalities: Bill O’Reilly and Ben Stein.

In an interview on NBC’s “Today Show” this morning, Fox News host O’Reilly said Americans are tired of secularism.

“I think people are fed up with secularism,” he said. “It gets just to be too much.”

Not Vexed By Vouchers: President Obama Doesn’t Buy ‘School Choice’ Propaganda

A lot of people are fooled by pro-voucher propaganda, but we’re pleased to note that President Barack Obama isn’t among them.

Hapless Holiday Hostilities: Even Fox News Commentator Says ‘War On Christmas’ Is ‘Silly’

After years of flap about the fictional “War on Christmas,” an unexpected source finally spoke out against this phony issue: a Catholic priest who works for the Fox News Channel.

During a recent segment of “Fox and Friends,” the Rev. Jonathan Morris criticized those who put their focus into being offended about the perceived repression of Christmas rather than actually celebrating the holiday.

Palin Palaver: Constitution Based On Bible, Former Alaska Governor Tells O’Reilly

Once again, Sarah Palin has got it all wrong.

Last week, the former Alaskan governor appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” to correct the “nonsense” she was hearing over the National Day of Prayer.

Celebrating The Secular: Obama Says U.S. Is Not A Christian Nation

The United States was not founded as a Christian nation. Nothing in the Constitution grants Christianity favored status. In fact, Article VI bans religious tests for federal office, and the First Amendment bars laws "respecting an establishment of religion" while protecting "the free exercise thereof" – for all faiths.

It's good to hear political leaders remind us of this fact from time to time, as President Barack Obama did yesterday during a press conference in Turkey.
