Megyn Kelly reminds Fox viewers: 'This country has a long history of discrimination against certain groups'

Screen Shot 2012-08-02 At 6.04.00 PmThis country has a long history of discrimination against certain groups. Eventually we wind up getting it right. Right? Against women, against blacks, the civil rights movement and so on. And in justifying that discrimination when it was in place, some folks turn to the Bible and turn to their religious beliefs and said we have to have slavery because it’s in the Bible. Women have to be second-class citizens because that’s in the Bible. Blacks and whites can’t get married because that’s in the Bible. That wound up in a case. A judge wrote that in an opinion, which the Supreme Court ultimately struck that down, saying that’s not right, judge—the Equal Protection clause says you can't do that. Why is gay marriage any different?

Your thoughts

I'm not one to usually comment but how can a seemingly intelligent woman be so shallow? Christian people such as myself do not believe that slauery, which I believe to be wrong and guess what I am from the south and same sex marriage is anything similiar. God created woman for man not man for man. She needs to get some biblical facts straight.
