Fox News is the biggest right-wing propaganda machine in the media, and that was made even more obvious after one of their morning commentators blasted atheism. Oh, the network is also publicly pumping some christian film about the WTC Cross. It seems that this network just doesn't care what groups it insults and degradesÂ—groups of Americans, mind you.
This morning on Fox News, commentator Brian Kilmeade made a biting comment about Atheists in the United States. His comment focused on the American Atheists group, who are suing over the WTC Cross at the Ground Zero Memorial:
This organization is causing trouble on this in particular. You gotta feel that they don't have much to stand on.
Kilmeade cited a Rasmussen poll of 1,000 potential voters indicating more than 70 percent of Americans support the WTC Cross. So the point of view on Fox News is basically that this isn't a big deal and atheists are attacking American ideals. That's not the case.
The common misconception lately is that the WTC Cross isn't a piece of christian symbolism. Fox and its commentators are trying to spread the idea that Atheists are the ones making something religious of this item. It is, after all, nothing but a girder from the 9/11 wreckage.
However, this christian cross became such when it was consecrated by a Catholic priest. It was literally blessed to be a part of the christian culture and has been used as a piece of spiritual symbolism. Hopefully the American Atheists and those who stand behind them prove successful in this lawsuit. Until then, the idiot-machine on Fox News will continue misleading dim-witted Americans.
