Sure, make me feel bad about the way we're treating Skep  :(

She is probably much closer to right than most of us. In an ideal world, we would all be like that. But since our destiny seems to be to shoot at each other, it probably won't work.

Of course, since I don't watch TV, I had no idea the Fox had a progressive talking head.  So I at least got a little enlightenment in that department.

I don't know what to think either. I'm too much of a pessimist to think that being nice to Sean Hannity will do any good.

My conservative neighbor, maybe. But not Sean Hannity.
It isn't true that non-existent gods can't do anything. For instance, they were able to make me into an atheist.

There's no compassion on FOX NOISE, they're a tabloid. If she works or worked for them then she's a part of that tabloid.

I only have a filter for people who do not consistently beg to be belittled, ridiculed, insulted, and demeaned.

According to her wiki, she's pretty active in terms of Civil Rights.

Considering Fox News is owned by the entertainment division, I'm not surprised they get away with what they do.

According to Cpt. Obvious: Theists think they know God, Atheists require evidence.
