Ann Coulter and Justice Antonin Scalia to Synagogue – Jews Are Safer with Christians in Charge
by Thom Hartmann
The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) called on media to stop inviting Ann Coulter as a guest commentator and strongly condemned her comments that Jews should be â€œperfectedâ€ by accepting the New Testament and that America would be better off if Judaism were â€œthrown awayâ€ and all Americans were Christian.
â€œWhile Ann Coulter has freedom of speech, news outlets should exercise their freedom to use better judgment,â€ said NJDC Executive Director Ira N. Forman. â€œJust as media outlets donâ€™t invite those who believe that Martians walk the earth to frequently comment on science stories, itâ€™s time they stop inviting Ann Coulter to comment on politics.â€
Media Matters for America has a complete transcript of Coulterâ€™s comments â€” and video â€” available here.
Similarly, Justice Antonin Scalia turned history on its head several years ago when he attended an Orthodox synagogue in New York and claimed that the Founders intended for their Christianity to play a part in government. Scalia then went so far as to suggest that the reason Hitler was able to initiate the Holocaust was because of German separation of church and state.
