Hannity Pal Mark Steyn: I Don’t Think Obama Is A Christian

The Hannity show fell right in line with the rest of Fox News in attacking President Obama’s Christianity based on his comments at the Easter Prayer Breakfast this week. And, like at least one other show, there was a guest who accused the president of not really being a Christian.

Sean Hannity attacked Obama’s comment, that he gets concerned by “less-than-loving expressions by Christians” by playing clips of Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Then it was guest Mark Steyn’s turn.

STEYN: I don’t think in any sense he is a Christian, Sean. I think he’s a social justice warrior who, like a lot of people from the cultural left, regards religion as the opiate of the rubes, to modify Marx. But I think in Obama’s case, it’s compounded by the fact that he does have this profound respect for Islam that leads him actually to invert the situation that’s going on in the world today so that the Christians are the problem and the Muslims who are beheading the Christians and shooting the Christians and cutting the throats of the Christians are somehow the victim group that we all need to be more sensitive to.

This is similar to an accusation made on America's Newsroom earlier in the day. But in that case, the guest went birther, too.

As I tweeted Fox News, if Obama’s criticisms of Christianity are so meaningful, what does it say about Fox that they keep criticizing African Americans?

Watch Steyn blow the dog whistle above, from last night’s Hannity.
