After Insults, Fox Host Kicks Atheist Off His Show

Ad Feedback

Fox Business Network host Eric Bolling ended a live interview with an atheist guest, after the man began insulting Christianity and the celebration of Christmas.

Dan Barker appeared Tuesday on Bolling's "Follow The Money" show to discuss an effort by the Freedom From Religion Foundation to remove a Texas nativity scene.

Bolling is a Christian and stopped the interview because Barker -- the group's spokesman -- used harsh language toward the Christian faith.

"By the way, why was Jesus born? To save us from our sins. What an insult that we are degraded, depraved human beings, that Jesus created a hell, a place of torture," Barker said.

"I have to stop you," Boiling responded. "This is my show. See, the name of this show is 'Follow The Money with Eric Bolling.' I can't allow you to talk like that on my show. You're absolutely wrong."

"You, sir, are denigrating the name of Jesus Christ. I'm not going to let it happen. I'm going to say goodbye to you right now. Bye, bye," Bolling said.

That was the second time the interview became heated.

Earlier in the segment, Barker called the nativity scene insulting. Bolling interrupted him by saying he was a Christian and that it wasn't insulting to him.
