This weekend on Fox & Friends, a former DOJ official raised a few eyebrows with his comments regarding the passage of a Madison, Wisconsin city ordinance that prohibits businesses from discriminating against atheists.
J. Christian Adams claims that the ordinance was conceived by the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a “very powerful” organization which pressures governments to “pass anti-Christian, anti-religious ordinances. They team up with government, for example, they were behind getting the IRS to monitor sermons and homilies by Christian pastors.”
“There’s a lot of reasons why Christians or Jews might not want to hire an atheist,” he continued. “In fact, it’s in the New Testament — it says things like avoid them and disassociate with them. You might have a job, for example, where you want someone who believes in a higher power.”
“For example,” Adams continued, “maybe you’re an airline and hiring pilots who you prefer they maybe believe in Hell. To tell people that you can’t only hire people of faith intrudes on their free exercise of faith.”
“There’s a political element here,” Fox host Tucker Carlson chimed in. “If there’s no God, then the highest authority is government.”
