The latest in Hawaii.

The reason the -- Is that the event involving new hope church which handled ticket sales for -- concert.
Joining us out of New York -- -- is Gretchen Carlson named hero did you mean is there a growing.
Anti Christian bias in America.
Look I'm Catholic bill and I have to tell you if if I didn't answer that positively -- yes.
I wouldn't be telling you I wouldn't be reflecting what's going on our country look we've had activity seen.
And crashes and menorah is all over the place but all of a sudden now because a political correctness or whatever you want to call it.
And the fact that there seems to be this direction to try to reduce the number of religious we identified dog displays.
Then you know what we're seeing now with more and more of these things being down suppressed by the courts -- -- now saying.
If there is an identification of religion in any way.
Then that is unconstitutional.
And it is a violation of the First Amendment.
But the interesting thing about this bill is that the First Amendment.
I have the establishment clause and -- -- -- and there's no way that you can interrupt the establishment of -- religion or prohibit the free exercise -- religion.
It doesn't give you freedom -- religion and that's what my objection it's.
These case you don't only not only out now more than.
-- -- freedom of speech.
Freedom of speech issue in many areas like the Charlie Brown thing where the Arkansas.
Church was attacked for putting on a political Merry Christmas Charlie Brown I don't know I didn't know this but did you know that Charlie Brown is a rabbi I guess he he was.
Began rabbi and that's why did you -- that from.
I just made it up.
Because this is so absurd all right that that would be the only reason that you would have to band because than Toronto that would really know if anyone had.
I went separate interview -- -- I think I have not supreme -- would say that's not the establishment of ever of any particular religions.
I don't know what or I don't know what these -- -- would say but all I know is Carlson that every day I come to work and I see attacks.
On Judeo Christian tradition that you why do I see them you Ross -- why do I see these attack.
You see them because mean listen now to the less than 1% in society that feels this way it's usually one complaint.
That changes it for the majority of the people who have enjoyed it for their lifetime I don't remember these complaints when I was growing up.
I don't remember any of them and now what will my children be fighting for.
What All My Children they already we already have to -- that told you before I kind of have to say hey.
The backseat what.
Beyond Yonder you can see baby Jesus maybe even if there is -- nativity scene anywhere.
So this is what we're doing now we're pandering to the political correctness of -- very few.
Groups of people.
And I believe a lot of it comes down to the litigious nature of -- of our society as well.
And many of these schools.
And many of these churches and many of these -- -- already have budget concerns.
And they realize that doesn't -- because then my hair a play book.
There are places like the Thomas More law center and other pro Bono group so we'll defend you.
And every school district has lawyers for on retainer that work for the districts out.
That's just a cop out.
There's a lack of will.
And a lack of leadership.
In the Christian communities.
In America generally speaking generally speak.
I have the lead this campaign that's who's leading the biggest sinner and a world is leaving -- -- why.
You assume that I'm leaving it to god I don't know what -- Tony is there anybody else it -- do this beside O'Reilly anybody.
Well but we don't yet we're not getting this bureau.
From any of the churches they'd just won't engage.
You know it's interesting bill that you say that because I happen to agree with you and and Gretchen is right when she says it's just 1%.
That's making all of these objections but at the end of the day what you've got her Christians were not trying to shut down other religions Christians are not trying to convert by the way is still there -- And -- hit an eight is wrong and even Thomas Jefferson the ultimate secularist is the one who said there's no injury to -- one -- -- what my neighbor says there are twenty gods or no gotten -- ourselves get up my back.
So we just kind of yeah.
Hello little girl who's six year old -- she can't quarter -- grandfather.
Twenty seconds cost India's -- -- -- some good news a solution.
In Santa Monica where they've been trying to shut something down and it's amazing that's been -- for 29 years guess what the success story is as long as you haven't I attended nativity scene.
