Marie Harf Wedding

Marie Elizabeth Harf and Joshua Paul Lucas were married Saturday at the Vienna Presbyterian Church in Vienna, Va. The Rev. Erin E. Bair, an Anglican priest and a friend of the couple, performed the ceremony.

Marie Harf Obama

Former Obama State Department spokesman Marie Harf was “sort of … offended” when asked why there is “such an open animosity to Christianity from those on the left.”

Harf rejected the idea “that there is something inherent among the left that means we don’t like Christianity.” Gosh, what would make anyone believe that?

There were several direct, Christianity-hostile actions taken during the Obama administration. Additionally, the Obama years were marked by a serious, undeniable “spike in government driven religious hostility,” primarily directed at Christians.

The segment opened with a brief replay of one of MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle’s sarcastic, condescending Wednesday comments Larry Kudlow, recently selected as the Chairman of the Trump administration’s Council of Economic Advisers. Kudlow had the unmitigated gall to mention “God’s will” in a CNBC interview. Fox & Friends co-host Lisa Boothe then mentioned Joy Behar’s description of Mike Pence and Christians in general as “mentally ill,” and Senator Bernie Sanders’ grilling of Trump nominees, including one for a budgeting post(!), over their Christian beliefs. That set up Boothe’s question: “Why is there such an open animosity to Christianity from those on the left?
