Hate of Church and State: Fox News Facebook Page Gets Over 8,000 Death Threats After Segment on WTC Cross
Just over a week ago the group America Atheists filed a lawsuit to prevent a cross from being erected at the World Trade Center Memorial site.
The cross in question is actually two broken girders from the original tower that were found in the rubble and roughly make the shape of the Christian cross.
Last week Blair Scott, the Communications Director for the American Atheists, appeared on Fox News show America Live to discuss the lawsuit. It went as you might imagine.
However, it’s the online aftermath that’s getting much of the attention. Following Scott’s appearance Fox News’ FaceBook page received more that 8,000 death threats against atheists.
8,000 death threats. Eight THOUSAND.
