Brit Hume, possibly the only proselytizing Episcopalian in existence, doubles down on his advice to Tiger Woods, and manages to claim it’s possible for a Christian to be persecuted in America:
The Bible even speaks of it, that, you know, you speak the name, Jesus Christ, and I don’t — and I don’t mean to make a pun here, but all hell breaks loose. And — and it has always been thus. It is explosive… It triggers a very powerful reaction in people who do not share the faith and who do not believe in it.
Actually, the powerful reaction here stems from Brit recommending Christianity for its pro-adultery benefits, but let’s move on — WorldNetDaily has its own bone to pick with Glenn Beck’s brief moment of birther clarity:
Both Beck and O’Reilly cite the contemporaneous appearance of birth announcements in two Honolulu newspapers as prima facie evidence Obama was born in Hawaii and “birthers” are conspiracy nuts.
However, what neither talk host realizes is that newspaper birth announcements are not placed by parents phoning their local paper with the good news that they had a child. Rather, as WND has reported based on interviews with the two Hawaii papers involved, the Obama newspaper birth announcements stemmed from information automatically sent to the papers by Hawaii’s Department of Health upon the state’s issuance of a “Certification of Live Birth,” which, as WND has also reported, is considered insufficient on its own to positively document the president’s birthplace.
And what WND doesn’t realize is that we shot through that theory back in July. Basically, it depends on a Hawaiian state form being packed in advance and reaching Honolulu from Mombassa in three days. Over a weekend. In 1961.
