Fox News Host Vs World Net Daily

Fox News host Meghan Kelly yesterday drew the scorn of much of her audience when she said this about same-sex marriage and the bible:
“This country has a long history of discrimination against certain groups. Eventually we wind up getting it right. Right? Against women, against blacks, the civil rights movement and so on. And in justifying that discrimination when it was in place, some folks turn to the Bible and turn to their religious beliefs and said we have to have slavery because it’s in the Bible. Women have to be second-class citizens because that’s in the Bible. Blacks and whites can’t get married because that’s in the Bible. That wound up in a case. A judge wrote that in an opinion, which the Supreme Court ultimately struck that down, saying that’s not right, judge, because of the equal rights clause. What’s the difference with gay marriage?”
The resultant outraged World Net Daily post and its comment thread fall into our favorite category: Infighting Is Funny. But don't go rushing to friend Kelly on Facebook - after all she once dismissed police brutalization of Occupy protesters by calling pepper spray, "Just a food product, essentially." That bit of dumbassery triggered one of the most amusing hashtag memes in Twitter history.
