On Tuesday night, the major broadcast networks refused to cover the latest news regarding the fight for religious liberty as Oklahoma’s Supreme Court ruled hours earlier that a Ten Commandments monument at the State Captiol grounds in Oklahoma City must be removed due to it being “obviously religious in nature” and “an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths.”

While the networks ignored this story, the Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File dedicated a full segment to the decision with host Megyn Kelly explaining that it’s “what some are calling a new blow to the faithful” and possibly the start of a “religiously based divisiveness” that Justice Stephen Breyer (surprisingly) warned of in a 2005 case about a similar statue in Texas.
