Nutjob Activists: Fox Anti-Christian -- And Biased Toward Teh Gay
January 27, 2015

Think about that, and let it soak in. They're actually accusing Fox News of not being conservative enough. Via Raw Story:

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality spoke with Jerry Kenney and Cliff Kincaid on Saturday to discuss how the conservative news network was punishing Christians for their beliefs. In particular, the conservatives claimed that Fox News forced anchor Bret Baier to withdraw from the 2015 Legatus Summit after activists noted the Catholic group promoted anti-gay views.

“Many of you probably look to Fox News as a legitimate source of news and information,” Kincaid said. “But I don’t think you can trust them any more.”

LaBarbera authored a 92-page report in 2013 that warned Fox News had “become pro-homosexual propaganda.” The report was published by Kincaid’s USA Survival group.

Kincaid later called on Shepard Smith to “come out of the closet,” accusing the Fox News host of secretly being “one of the most powerful homosexuals in the media.”

Kincaid speculated on his show Saturday that activist Jeremy Hooper, who first highlighted the anti-gay views of Legatus, had personally called Smith to get Baier in trouble.

“For what we know, this guy Hooper or one of his friends may have called Shep Smith, and said, ‘Hey Shepard, you know your buddy Bret Baier is speaking at this anti-gay conference,’” he remarked.
