Fox’s Tucker Carlson: ‘Christianphobia’ Is ‘Super Common Among Educated’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson decried the “educated” people who perpetuate “Christianphobia” — the fear of Christians — during Sunday’s “Fox & Friends.”

“It’s appalling and it’s, it’s super common among educated people,” Carlson said. “The people I live around, they all kind of have contempt for Christianity.”

Carlson, who graduated from Trinity College, then turned to his guest the Rev. Jonathan Morris who provided an analysis on the types of people who look down on Christianity, during a segment called “The Fight For Faith.”

“There is this Christianphobia in some elite sectors of our society,” Morris said. “One is in the news media, at some, to some extent. Number two in Hollywood. And number three, I think, and this is the most important and dangerous one, in academia.”

“Among some of the most educated there is this, I wouldn’t, you know, it’s not phobia, I don’t think,” Morris continued. “They call it ‘Christianphobia’, I think it’s more, it’s disdain. And almost embarrassment.”

Morris also provided an explanation for the “disdain” people have for Christianity.

“You know, ’cause it’s not cool,” Morris said. “It’s not cool to be a believing Christian. … It’s not cool. That’s the reason.”
