Fox News Slams President Obama for Quoting the Bible (Video)

| by Michael Allen

The Fox News show "Fox & Friends" attacked President Obama this morning for referencing the Bible during his immigration speech last night.

"Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger," President Obama said last night. "We were strangers once, too. My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too."

President Obama was referencing Exodus 22:21.

According to, today on "Fox & Friends" (video below), co-host Tucker Carlson stated, "For this guy specifically, the president who spent his career defending late-term abortion, among other things, lecturing us on Christian faith? That’s too much. That is too much. This is the Christian left at work, and it’s repugnant."

Carlson was referencing a Republican claim that was debunked in 2008 by In reality, President Obama refused to support an anti-abortion bill in Illinois when he was a state Senator because he and many others believed the bill was aimed at undermining all abortion rights.

In 2008, then-U.S. Sen. Obama (D-Ill.) stated, "On an issue like partial birth abortion, I strongly believe that the state can properly restrict late-term abortions. I have said so repeatedly. All I’ve said is we should have a provision to protect the health of the mother, and many of the bills that came before me didn’t have that." notes that "Fox & Friends" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck added this morning, “That’s not what the scholars behind the Bible would interpret as proper use.”

Ironically, 48 hours earlier, "Fox & Friends" attacked President Obama for not expressing Christian values, such as Christmas, as President Reagan did in 1981 (video below).

In reality, President Obama has often spoke about his Christian faith, per the Associated Press, CBS News and CNN.
