Why has FOX ran two stories Insulting CHRISTIANS?
Marty60(while watching Fox) | 2-17-2010 | self

Posted on 02/17/2010 10:46:25 AM PST by Marty62

I have been monitoring Fox this Am. First Bob Beckhel makes a snide comment about Bidens Ash on his forhead. Biden shouldn't be wearing his ashes. I credited Beckhels nasty Religion/Republican hate filled mind to the comments.

Then Megan comes on and has a segment with Rosie ODonnell and Jeanine Garofolo (who cares how to spell her name)with a vicious attack on Cristians and Republican Christians in particular. So what is this with Fox?

Is the First day of the Lenten Season somehow in need of a hate filled diatribe from Fascist Dummies?

I have left a comment but I'm sure it will be ignored.

I wonder if Fox will give Muslim Religious holidays the same treatment?

Yep, I let fox Know they are losing viewers.

I’m one of em. Been watching the shopping channel. I can’t stand Bob Beckel and his insults and giving Hannity the finger on air the other day...They seem to have done a complete flip in the last few weeks.

But then Axelrod did have that meeting with Roger Ailes....

To me, it seemed to be an attack on the libs more than Christians. The libs were looking petty and out of touch for attacking main stream Christians.

The Christian bashing doesn’t bother me. What I always questioned about Fox are some of the assinine shows they have such as Family Guy.

Ironically, many of those who attack Christianity are often the first to request a priest or minister whenever they are on their deathbed.....you know...just in case.

This isn’t Fox, this is people who have varying opinions on Fox.

If things like this bother you, then how can you watch anything?

Bob Beckle is just a horrible person. So, I would expect him to say something like that. Ditto the other two mentioned.

I remember back in 2004, when Bob Beckel was playing the “good Christian” on Hannity & Colmes after getting busted paying for whores. That lasted about 15 minutes.

FOX is committed to displaying both sides of our tragic political circumstances. At least that is their “claim to fame”. Beckhel is a slobbering liberal kool-aid drinker — that is why Hannity has him on. Beckhel is the perfect poster boy for the radical left — all he ever provides is twisted political relativism and support for Obama’s lies and deceit along with the continuous blaming of Bush for every lie and failure of Obama and his ilk. As we know, this is all that he can do since the wake of the Obama administration is socialist disaster and nothing positive for America or Americans.

Hitler had Goebbels. Obama has his “Ministers of Lies”.

I read somewhere that Saudis bought Fox? Is that true? If so there are real problems for Christians in the next few years.

I dunno why FOX shows instist on having that anti-intellectual Beckel on board, unless its to discredit the libtard POV.

I don't care if he and Hannity are friends - his cynicism is so unappealing I can't stand to look at his face.

he did that

why Hannity is even friends with that grumpy old fool is beyond me.

Besides I do not watch them much now since the likes of Hannity, Beck , OR,etc say they’re looking out for folks and yet will not ever state what homosexuals do and what their agenda is.

notice how Beck went after the czars and well done to him but there was one czar he never went after and never even mentioned

who was that???

Jennings a czar who teaches kids about how homosexuals can stick up a fist up another mans arse
He has also told a kid that he should wear protection when having a homosexual relationship wit a grown man who is a teacher.
He now is the school czar and Beck doesn’t think that this is worth mentioning.

HEY BECK I KNOW YOU READ THIS SITE SO WHY ARE YOU NOT MENTIONING AND GOING AFTER JENNINGS?

He is more of a threat than Van Jones and OR who says he’s looking out for the folks doesn’t mention this either.

Some on here have called Hannity on his radio show and said they wanted to talk about the homosexual agenda and the screener says not today

It is a conservative issue same as abortion and yet silence from all of them so I see no reason why I should watch them anymore

he tries to give the image of a tough guy and thinks because he played football years a go in school he is tough.

He’s a big pansy wit a big mouth and a grumpy old fool who seems to get off by insulting folks.
Why does Hannity even have him as a friend is beyond me

So you agree it is perfectly fine to call Christians vile names on FOX yet Muslims would NEVER be treated to such stories.

Or do you agree with the Christian haters.

get with the programme please

it is alright to mock white Christian straight normal, men and women.

we know this would never happen with muslims or homosexuals

I know lets have a series of homosexuals having parties and that way all these young kids can actually see how mentally messed up they are.

I bet those around this country who say well I know one and they’re nice , they just want to love and be left alone will soon wake up when they see how homosexuals really are.

I thought Bob Beckel became a Born Again Christian after he was caught writing a check to a hooker? Or so Cal Thomas has said.

I guess that conversion didn’t last long.

I don’t like bidin (name spelled incorrectly as always when I dislike a person and cannot give them any respect) but...biden has a right to have his ashes received on Ash Wednesday.

That said...beckle should mind his own business and look into a full length mirror to see what he should or shouldn’t be doing. I think if he did that he might want to change his own ways. Take another look at YOURSELF beckle.

Fox News - what station is that now. Lately Faux News has changed to something wholly other. Just waiting for the endorsement of Obamascare. Sharia Law. Christian will being marched soon to re-education camps. Discredit the Catholic Church - ridicule the traditions of Catholicism - Saul Alinskites are Journalists. Face it America is a changing. keep in mind i had a served under a senior pastor former journalist turned pastor. He beleived that Socialism was the answer this was in 1993 - 1995. yes this was a conservative church denominational church.

I just watched a replay and Megan said “These women are off the deep end...the hate and the vitriol.” She also called them a “fringe” element.

As for Bechol, he can’t help himself and they don’t control his comments. It just exposes his ignorance.

“in the books both in the Old Law and in the New that the men who repented of their sins bestrewed themselves with ashes and clothed their bodies with sackcloth. Now let us do this little at the beginning of our Lent that we strew ashes upon our heads to signify that we ought to repent of our sins during the Lenten fast. “

Uh Huh...I wonder if Biden Repented his support of Abrortion?/s

What it is with Fox; and Bill O’Reilly got this started, Hannity and Colms, too, is they get some nasty bastard like Bechtel to come on and just in-your-face insult and demean everything good, Christian, patriotic, etc., they can, and then get all the talk-show junkies stirred up and determined to hold on for dear life to see what the ESTEEMED LEADER, like Megan, or Hannity, or O’Reilly, is going to do to smack ‘em down. All they ever do is invite them back. I am not going to be Foxs’ victim any more. I can/have formed my own opinions. ‘Hell with ‘em.

One Saudi owns about 10 percent of Fox shares. I seriously doubt he sits in on the news meetings, just as I seriously doubt he goes to the WSJ editorial board meetings. Until I learn otherwise, I assume they are in it for the money. Murdoch remains the controlling, majority shareholder.
