World Net Daily Again Promotes Fake Story of Christians Being Repressed

Let’s get right to Right Wing Watch’s story about this: Another Religious Right Tale Of Anti-Christian Victimization Gets Thoroughly Debunked. They give the short version, I’ll try to give the short-short version: Six-year-old child was doing a “sharing” (public speaking) exercise in school, allegedly was told by the teacher she couldn’t talk about the Bible, Christians got outraged in typical Christian Love™ fashion. Except, as RWW points out, the entire victimization story is made up (but happily promoted by serial maker-upper Todd Starnes of FOX “news”).

Granted, this revelation that it was made up came to light on January 21. RWW blogged about it on January 29. WND’s article by Bob Unruh on it came out January 14 (“District Bullies Students Over Faith – Again” — This is labeled a “WND Exclusive” despite it being reported all over Tea Bagistan). I have yet to see any WND retraction.

If for some reason you want to read Bob’s article, you’ll find a whole lot of (un)righteous indignation. Lots of blustering, also, by the legal team at Advocates for Faith & Freedom, including quotes by their general counsel, Robert Tyler, such as, “The disapproval and hostility that Christian students have come to experience in our nation’s public schools has become epidemic.”

The article served its purpose, however, and it garnered 54 ratings (4.80/5 average) and a decent 91 comments. It’s not worth going through the comments, they’re not that unusual for WND.
