Disclaimer: I am not a fan or a hater of specific news outlets or reporters, Fox News, CNN, Huffington Post, etc. Just like most things, I’m sure there are insanely illogical people on both sides of the spectrum in all of these entities. This just happened to be one of those people who works for Fox News. <<< click for video

Lauren’s performance and willful ignorance should embarrass theists, scholars and anyone with half a brain. Fox News should be embarrassed (I’d have fired Green), but instead it seems they are standing by the interview. This gives both news and religion a bad image.
