In it, but not of it. TPM DC
Gretchen Carlson then wondered why Christianity keeps getting picked on, while other religious occasions are tolerated and accepted. Inhofe responded by citing the opinion of a prominent Democrat who appears frequently on Fox News.
"You know, your good friend who's been on your program many times, Lanny Davis," said Inhofe. "I was on a program with him last week. He's Jewish. He's very liberal. He's from the Clinton White House. And he agrees with me. So I don't know why that is. I think there are a lot of people in other states who wonder also: Why do they always pick on the Christians?"
As the Tulsa World reported last week, Inhofe explained why he has made this decision:
"I did not do so last year because I'm not going to ride in a Christmas parade that doesn't recognize Christmas," he said. "I am hopeful that the good people of Tulsa and the city's leadership will demand a correction to this shameful attempt to take Christ, the true reason for our celebration, out of the parade's title. Until the parade is again named the Christmas Parade of Lights, I will not participate."
