Fox News’ Shepard Smith on Kim Davis Supporters – ‘Haters Are Gonna Hate’ – Compares Christians to Racists and Shariah Advocates

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

Shep draws false analogy between Christian supporters of Davis and segregationists opposed to interracial marriage

 

See larger graphic below.

See larger OUT magazine graphic below (after the jump).

TAKE ACTION: Watch the astonishingly Unfair & Unbalanced Fox “News” video clip below in which allegedly homosexual daytime anchor Shepard Smith (see Blade graphic below) snidely claims that pro-Kim-Davis Christians–and those opposed to the Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling that imposed homosexual “marriage” on the nation–are akin to “haters,” racial segregation. Smith says on air: “Haters are gonna hate.” Contact Fox News using their online e-mail list for shows HERE or at their main number 888-369-4762 [hit #3] or 212-301-3000.

Fox News’ Shep Smith Attends Homosexual Journalists Fundraiser – The homosexual newspaper Washington Blade covers Fox News daytime anchor Shepard Smith’s participation in a 2014 fundraiser for the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (photo: the Blade’s Michael Lavers). Note the Blade headline: “Closeted  Fox News Anchor Attends Gay Fundraiser.” It is a widely reported story in the homosexual media that Smith is living a homosexual lifestyle. OUT magazine lists Smith as a powerful homosexual every year. Fox News gives a major grant to the homosexual journalists organization, which engages in pro-“gay” advocacy. See Peter LaBarbera’s 2013 in-depth report on Fox News’ pro-homosexual bias for America’s Survival.

 

Dear AFTAH Readers,

On Tuesday I watched the Fox News coverage of the pro-Kim-Davis rally outside the Kentucky jail where she was held for six days. Let me say that anchor Shep Smith’s snide “reporting” was reprehensible and deeply disturbing–especially for a network created to give conservatives a fair shake.

You had to see it to believe it: “Shep” started out using words like “divisive,” “obscene,” and “grandstanding” to discuss the pro-Davis rally. But it only got worse. After repeatedly drawing a ridiculous and malicious connection between current opponents of homosexual “marriage” and racist foes of interracial marriage, Smith uttered the ultimate left-wing attack-line equating biblical beliefs with malice: “Haters are gonna hate”! Was I watching Fox News or MSNBC?

But the Fox News star–who infamous recast Mike Huckabee’s 2013 “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” in as the “National Day of Intolerance”–wasn’t finished: he drew another comparison, this time between Christians opposed to the Supreme Court’s national imposition of homosexual “marriage” to Islamists trying to impose Shariah Law. Subtlety is apparently not Smith’s forte.

As I told Cliff Kincaid in an interview recently, if Jorge Ramos is truly an immigration activist masquerading as a journalist, then Shep Smith is a homosexual activist

And let me tell you: the rest of Fox News’ daytime coverage of Davis wasn’t much better. The media’s sneering condescension on the issue of sodomy-based “marriage” is palpable.

Fox News is undermining its brand: the pro-“gay” bias at the supposed “Fair and Balanced” network has only gotten worse since I wrote my in-depth report on the subject for America’s Survival two years ago. TAKE ACTION: contact Fox News through their online form here. And keep fighting for Truth!— Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @Peter LaBarberaamericansfortruth@gmail.com.

Shepard Smith Calls Christians “Haters”

By Cliff Kincaid  — September 9, 2015

“Haters are going to hate” is how Shepard Smith of Fox News referred to supporters of Christian clerk Kim Davis on his Tuesday afternoon show. It was another example of the anti-Christian bias that has been rearing its ugly head on a channel that many conservatives had looked to for “fair and balanced” coverage of the issues they care about.

But calls to several Fox News officials, asking for reaction to Smith’s anti-Christian comments, were not returned.

In other controversial comments about a pro-Davis rally being broadcast during his show, Smith ripped conservative Christians for “a religious play again,” saying, “This is the same crowd that says, ‘We don’t want Sharia law, don’t let them tell us what to do, keep their religion out of our lives and out of our government.’ Well, here we go again.”

Smith seems not to understand the difference between Christianity, a foundation of the American system that protects religious rights and liberty, and Islam, an authoritarian religion which wants to impose its values on others.

It was expected that the liberals in the media complaining about “mass incarceration” would make an exception for Davis to go to jail. That’s just the way the liberals are. But it was somewhat unexpected that Fox News would break its promise to air “fair and balanced” coverage of the issue by permitting Smith to take such a crude stand against Davis on the “Shepard Smith Reporting” 3:00 p.m. ET show.

LISTEN: Mark Levin: Justice Anthony Kennedy Used SCOTUS to Impose His Own Pro-Homosexual Policy Preference – Ted Cruz Stands with Kim Davis

Friday, September 4th, 2015

Sen. Cruz: “The religious liberty threat is real. They are coming for each of us, and Kim Davis is only the first.”

Folks, this is a wonderful and enlightening exchange between talk show host and author Mark Levin and GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz on the situation of Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refused post-Obergefell to issue official homosexual “marriage” licenses under her name due to her Christian beliefs. Davis was jailed yesterday and faces likely stiff penalties, if not extended jail time. This interview was recorded yesterday, September 3, 2015. Levin eviscerates the “rule of law” argument frame advanced by the Left and even many “conservatives” who do not seem to be willing to admit that the Supreme Court of the United States itself declared it above the “rule of law” by taking the issue of marriage away from the people. (Kentucky citizens voted by a whopping 75 percent in favor of a “one man/one woman” constitutional amendment in 2004.) — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Statement by Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis Who Refuses to Issue Homosexual ‘Marriage’ Licenses – Liberty Counsel

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015
Kim Davis

Kim Davis

Release by Liberty Counsel, Sept. 1, 2015:

Late yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court declined to extend the temporary stay of a federal court order involving Rowan County Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis. The federal court previously ordered Kim Davis to issue marriage licenses to the plaintiffs who filed suit against her. Liberty Counsel represents Kim Davis and appealed that order to the Court of Appeals. The lower court order was temporarily stayed until August 31, and, while the appeal is still pending, the stay of the order is no longer in effect. In light of these developments, Kim Davis released the following statement:

I have worked in the Rowan County Clerk’s office for 27 years as a Deputy Clerk and was honored to be elected as the Clerk in November 2014, and took office in January 2015. I love my job and the people of Rowan County. I have never lived any place other than Rowan County. Some people have said I should resign, but I have done my job well. This year we are on track to generate a surplus for the county of 1.5 million dollars.

In addition to my desire to serve the people of Rowan County, I owe my life to Jesus Christ who loves me and gave His life for me. Following the death of my godly mother-in-law over four years ago, I went to church to fulfill her dying wish. There I heard a message of grace and forgiveness and surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. I am not perfect. No one is. But I am forgiven and I love my Lord and must be obedient to Him and to the Word of God.

I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of Scripture and of Jesus Himself regarding marriage. To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience. It is not a light issue for me. It is a Heaven or Hell decision. For me it is a decision of obedience. I have no animosity toward anyone and harbor no ill will. To me this has never been a gay or lesbian issue. It is about marriage and God’s Word. It is a matter of religious liberty, which is protected under the First Amendment, the Kentucky Constitution, and in the Kentucky Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Our history is filled with accommodations for people’s religious freedom and conscience. I want to continue to perform my duties, but I also am requesting what our Founders envisioned – that conscience and religious freedom would be protected. That is all I am asking. I never sought to be in this position, and I would much rather not have been placed in this position. I have received death threats from people who do not know me. I harbor nothing against them. I was elected by the people to serve as the County Clerk. I intend to continue to serve the people of Rowan County, but I cannot violate my conscience.
