Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro said during a speech in Tennessee that Christians are in danger of losing their rights because the liberal mindset of modern times is all things anti-Christian are A-OK.
Speaking to a crowd at the NRB International Media Convention in Nashville, Pirro said, Western Journalism reported: Americans can’t rely on their First Amendment rights to protect them as the Founding Fathers intended any longer.
“Although it seems that the protections that we have in the Constitution are protections that no one can take away from us,” she said, “I want to tell you that they’re already being taken away.”
Blame liberalism, she said.
“The irony of today’s liberalism that is accepting of anything and everything is that it is sanctioning discrimination against Christians,” Pirro said.
WND’s acclaimed Whistleblower magazine shows in its powerfully moving April issue, “PERSECUTION RISING,” how today’s treatment of Christians in many nations is disturbingly reminiscent of the brutal persecution of the early followers of Christ.
Pirro told those in the audience in the media they ought to “defend free speech” and step up coverage of issues that show Christianity is under attack.
She also warned evangelical Christians in particular face a First Amendment hit and that the time may come when this group of people are no longer able to speak freely on matters of faith, Western Journalism reported.
“[The First Amendment is] the cornerstone of this nation,” Pirro said. “Your being offended is not an excuse [to take] my free speech.”
