Fox pundit: Atheists fighting government prayer are basically ‘Hitler’

Todd Starnes speaks to Fox News

Fox News radio host Todd Starnes on Tuesday said that atheists and non-religious people were taking the United States down the same road as Nazi Germany by trying to force religion out of government.

While guest hosting for Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday, Eric Bolling celebrated a “rare win for God in America” with Starnes after the Supreme Court upheld religious prayers by government bodies favoring a specific religion.

“Always a good day when the anti-Christian folks get smacked down by the Supreme Court,” Starnes quipped.

The Fox News outrage specialist said he wasn’t “into the legalese” of the decision, but worried that the fact that the ruling was limited to only “short prayers” meant that there would be future court cases.

Starnes then turned the segment into a pitch for his book, God Less America, arguing that “the Obama administration has been waging a war against people of the Christian faith. It’s not covered in the mainstream media, it’s covered here at the Fox News Channel.”

He predicted that atheists would even sue to have the words “endowed by our creator” retroactively removed from the Declaration of Independence.

“Let’s say the atheists are successful in removing creator out of that sentence, alright?” Starnes said. “Who do we put in there? I mean, look, the Germans tried it with Hitler. It didn’t work out very well with them. Look at what happened in Italy [with Mussolini].”

In fact, Adolf Hitler often mentioned religion in public speeches, and insisted that God was backing his policies.

“Lord God, give us the strength that we may retain our liberty for our children and our children’s children, not only for ourselves but also for the other peoples of Europe, for this is a war which we all wage, this time, not for our German people alone, it is a war for all of Europe and with it, in the long run, for all of mankind,” the dictator prayed at the conclusion of a 1942 speech in Berlin.

Well, now...  Want the government to stop favoring religion?  That's no better than moving whole ethnic groups into ghettos, shipping them to death camps, murdering children, etc.  

Yeah.  I can totally see the resemblance.

Mussolini outlawed freemasonry, exempted the clergy from taxation, cracked down on artificial contraception, campaigned for an increased birth rate, raised penalties for abortion, restricted nightlife, regulated women’s clothing and banned homosexual acts among adult men. Despite having many mistresses himself, he also put in place harsh punishments for adultery. In 1929 Mussolini signed an agreement with the Vatican under which the Church received authority over marriage and was compensated for property that had been seized decades earlier. Pope Pius XI afterwards referred to Mussolini as the “man whom providence has sent us.”

Ok, here's a challenge for CafeMom members.

Write an article starting with the words "Fox News pundit said ...", in the style of The Onion, and see how many people guess it is fake.

Can you be SO EXTREME, that it is implausible that a Fox News pundit would go that far?

We do love a good challenge, but I'm afraid to see how that would turn out. Unless it was revealed to be fake, I'm sure a few on here would argue about how it's the truth and they saw it and support it!
