Another casualty in The War Against Religion speaks out

Former Patriots running back Craig James has filed a complaint with the Texas Workforce Commission, saying that FOX Sports discriminated against him on the basis of his religion when it took him off the air after one week as a college football commentator....

When James lost his job with FOX Sports Southwest, a network spokesman was quoted as saying James didn’t fit in with the company because of the anti-gay statements he had made when he ran for the United States Senate in 2012. James is now claiming that by firing him for his anti-gay statements, FOX discriminated against him for his religious beliefs. James’s representatives called FOX taking him off the air an “outrageous example of workplace bigotry against people of faith.”

During his campaign, James criticized another candidate for attending a gay pride parade and said homosexuals “are going to have to answer to the Lord for their actions.”

When will freedom ring so people of faith can say the gays are going to Hell without being persecuted for it

A compelling argument on where this leads



[B]lack women, let me say something to you: you'll have a very hard time competing against a white homosexual male. He usually has got money, a white homo usually has an American Express card … homos love the theater, they love to go out to dinners, parties, they love that kind of a thing!

Speaking of which



Hypothesis undergoing long-term testing: Under the ownership of Rupert Murdoch, the "harmonization" of the Wall Street Journal shows up not on its editorial page, which was already the right-wing counterpart to Pravda, nor in the actual content of its articles, still the products of a generally first-rate reportorial staff.

Instead it turns up in headlines, story play, and immediate Rorschach-test moments like this.
