Todd Starnes, the ACLU, and the Right Thing to Do
Knightstown, Indiana, Endorses Christianity
It is not surprise to anyone that I believe Todd Starnes is one of the most ignorant people on the planet. The fact that he has teamed up with Truett McConnell College, a GA Baptist college, is frightening.
Starnes is continuously fanning the flames of a "War on Christians" and misrepresents history. Just use any search engine and you will be aghast at the twisting, contorting, and out-and-out lying about history and current events. Let's face it, the guy manipulates people with false facts for political gain. Goebbels would be so proud.
But this one is so basic that I'm amazed he hasn't been booed off the air with this one. The city of Knightstown, IN, has a lighted cross a top a Christmas tree. Not a star where it could be argued is merely symbolic of the Holiday Season. No. This is a cross, the emblem of one religion.
Dear Mr. Starnes: would you be OK if this were a star and crescent?
Very simple. If it is wrong for a city to do this for one religion, it is then wrong for all religions.
Madison's Remonstrance was very clear on how they intended to address situations like this.
Todd Starnes, you are what the founders warned us against.
