<p>[See <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2015/04/03/cnn-features-cha…; for more.] CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has aggressively attacked those who support Indiana&#39;s religious freedom law and on Thursday night he brought on Charles Barkley to slime Christians as &quot;religious nuts.&quot; The former NBA player, who is from Alabama originally, sneered, &quot;All these rednecks hide behind the Bible. That&#39;s what they do. That&#39;s one of the reason the south is behind in everything. They always hide behind the Bible. It&#39;s strictly about discrimination.&quot;&nbsp; Complaining about the lack of gay people invited to discuss the Indiana law, Barkley lamented, &quot;We got some of these religious nut jobs&quot; speaking out. Cuomo did not interrupt or challenge the sport star&#39;s hateful attack on the &quot;nut jobs.&quot; Instead, the anchor asserted that his show had featured plenty of gays.</p>
