Dave Briggs Promotes Prayer Day – Gets Schooled By Dan Barker
The religious right has their pure and sinless panties in a bunch about the recent court decision, by a Federal Judge in Wisconsin, that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. This latest outrage, by the evil libruls, has been getting a bit of press on both Fox opinion and Fox news which isn’t suprising given that Fox’s gospel is preached to a conservative Christian congregation. Newsie Martha MacCallum hosted a “fair & balanced” (not quite) discussion of this issue with Fox’s in-house Catholic priest, Father Jonathan Morris and Dan Barker from the “Freedom From Religion Foundation.” Martha and Fr.Morris just couldn’t seem to understand why good Americans can’t pray! Barker explained that they can pray all they want – but not at the taxpayer’s expense. Barker had a solo appearance on yesterday’s weekend Fox & Friends during which second stringer Dave Briggs pushed all the tired religious right arguments (used by Martha MacCallum) about this latest Christian persecution. Dan Barker rebutted these arguments in a reasoned and well articulated manner. Briggs even learned something about the Constitution and our country’s secular origins.
