Fox’s Shepard Smith interrupts live coverage of Kim Davis press conference to slam anti-gay ‘haters’

While Fox News was covering Kentucky clerk Kim Davis’ release from jail, anchor Shepard Smith interrupted to speak over the live footage, slamming Davis and her supporters.

While Fox News was covering Kentucky clerk Kim Davis’ release from jail, anchor Shepard Smith interrupted to speak over the live footage, slamming Davis and her supporters.

“They set this up as a religious play again,” Smith started out. “This is the same crowd that says, ‘We don’t want Sharia law, don’t let them tell us what to do, keep their religion out of our lives and out of our government.’ Well, here we go again.”

“When this started, this lawyer said he needed an accommodation for a woman who wanted one. She said she didn’t want her name on a license for gay people,” he continued. “Now they’ve come up with one, they’ve let her out of jail… But it’s not what they want.”

“This is what they want, what you’re hearing now and this what they’re going to get: stirred up argument and a couple of days in the news cycle, and they’re going to be able to make these claims.”

    Shep. I love you. Thanks so much, but i am sorry the Foxies are gonna want you fired. You wanna know the real shit hole of america? go read those “christian” comments on his page. These sheeple want a flippen THEOCRACY. This should scare everyone. I am mad. I am steaming mad at the hate thrown at this man for calling a spade a spade. Yeah, a newscast isn’t the best place for that. but you can tell he is angry and fed up with the nonsensical bible thumping. Huckabee is a wannabe christian dictator that has a god complex and will stop at nothing to push his ideologies onto the country. He is an opportunist. It is dangerous. read the comments. do it. they will threaten his life and his families lives for leaning a little left.of the robots they follow. doesn’t that worry you? well, it sure as hell worries me.

    Jesus never said anything against homosexuals, never married and hung out with a bunch of guys all the time.

    You know how messed up something is when zealots are called out by Fox. As a Christian, this woman makes me weep. As a gay man, this woman represents all that is wrong with my faith.

    I don’t think she really heard an affirmation from God! I think she thinks she is above everyone else because of her convictions and feels she has no other calling than to serve the lord. But if she really thinks that, God would say that do unto others as others would do unto you and to judge others is not your place, it is mine!

    They aren’t going to fire him. They expected it of him. He is gay, they know that although they will not allow it to be official and public. He was going too but hen they took away the Shep report and put him on the afternoon desk. Of course he supports marriage.

    Psychiatry has a different word for her religious insights…delusions, bipolar disorder and mania.

    This was a decent piece of op-ed from a “news” service that has zero credibility. Bravo to this guy…one time! Sanity in otherwise insane times.

    She is in if for her 5 minutes of fame and glory and of course hoping for some funds to be raised for her from the sheeple. All these people coming out of the woodwork are looking for a quick buck at the expense of others freedoms and rights. To hell with anyone else, they are out to pad their wallets while the going is good. What they don’t realize is that they are merely pawns.

    The difference between Christianity and other religions is that Christ’s work on the cross is a gift offered to each of us. It is not required that you accept it, it is totally up to you. In many predominantly Muslim countries they are, as we speak, beheading and killing Christians, simply because they are Christians.

    Jesus loves us, this I know. Bastetsmom: Jesus loves the people, including homosexuals, You have to differentiate between the people and the sin. It is the sin that Jesus speaks about and yes, there are passages in the Bible that speak directly against the sin of homosexuality as well as other sins that people, including you and me commit.

    Smith just won me over big-time. I have always considered him one of the fairest, even-handed journalists at Fox but I never was a big fan – their are other anchors (and certainly news channels & networks) I prefer. But BIG kudos to Smith for this.

    We can only hope that some of the Fox robots will now stop watching the propagandist shit of Rupert Murdoch. It won’t help the theocracists, though. They’re in whole ‘nother world from the rest of us.

    If the duties of your job, offend your religion… you might need to get another job. It happened to me and I quit a well paying job rather than use the kind of “creative paperwork” they were employing. I was asked to sign a client’s name to a document, and it was made clear that this was a common occurrence. If a client left the program and was not available to sign. But the law said they had to sign at the time of service so me signing their name and pre-dating the form was illegal. I also called the agency in charge of auditing such places and told them what to look for. Thus, my conscious was clear. The duties of Ms. Davis job are to issue marriage licenses to all who meet the legal criteria… if she cannot do that – then the “good conscious” thing to do is to resign.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
