WorldNetDaily: Fox News host to guest: 'You're going to hell!'

The host involved is Julie Banderas, host of Big Story Weekend. Last weekend, she had Shirley Phelps-Roper of the Westboro Baptist Church (sorry, no link--both the link name and the content on the other side are too offensive for words) on her show. And the interview degenerated into a shouting match--and almost into a knock-down, hair-pull, drag-out fight.

Both women should apologize to the American public for that unseemly display. Shirley Phelps-Roper is an extremely "carnal" Christian, if she is really saved (which I won't speculate on). Her theology does not come from the Bible, but is a completely extra-Biblical read-in. She's the one organizing those awful protests at US military funerals--the ones that say that America deserves what she's getting and that military service is inappropriate for Christians today. (I cite Romans 13:1-7 as answer to that canard alone.)

That said, Ms. Banderas severely damaged her dignity and that of her show and network by stooping to her guest's level. Unhappily, she's not the only one--though she is, arguably, the worst offender thus far.
