Appearing on Fox & Friends, Penny Nance, the CEO of Concerned Woman for America, launched into a critique of President Obama’s transportation nominee Anthony Foxx, making the bizarre claim that his declaration of a National Day of Reason was reminiscent of events that led to the Holocaust.
To coincide with Thursday’s National Day of Prayer, Foxx (the mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina and Obama’s pick to head the Department of Transportation) issued a proclamation for the National Day of Reason in his city.
Penny Nance found much to criticize in Foxx’s very public endorsement of the Constitution’s requirement of a separation between church and state.
“You know, G. K. Chesterton said that the Doctrine of Original Sin is the only one which we have 3,000 years of empirical evidence to back up. Clearly, we need faith as a component and it’s just silly for us to say otherwise,” she said.
Nance even went to attack the The Age of Enlightenment and Reason, saying that it “gave way to moral relativism, and moral relativism is what led us all the way down the dark path to the Holocaust.”
Foxx has endorsed the National Day of Reason for two years in a row now. “The application of reason, more than any other means, has proven to offer hope for human survival on Earth,” his proclamation read.
