Fox’s ‘fair and balanced’ equals 4 against 1

How many angry Christian men does it take to debate one atheist woman on national Fox News’ “Hannity” show?

It was Hannity, Fox’s favorite Catholic priest “Father” Jonathan Morris, blowhard Bill Donohue of the Catholic League and Fox’s Todd Starnes against an outnumbered and much interrupted Annie Laurie Gaylor, FFRF co-president.

During the July 1 show, ostensibly discussing a court ruling to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the Oklahoma Capitol but which devolved into a claim that Christians are being persecuted by the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling, Donohue called Gaylor a liar.

When she tried to get a word in edgewise, Donohue ironically reprimanded her: “Hold on, ma’am. We’re having a conversation here.” Starnes accused humanists of declaring “some sort of secular fatwa.”
