Todd Starnes caught lying about school Christian persecution again

Todd Starnes is like the serial killer in a bad CSI episode: By the time everyone has become wise to his last crime, he's already out about to commit the next one.

The serial fraud has already been caught lying about a supposed act of Christian persecution in a public school three times in the last two months, claiming that, in three separate schools, Christmas cards had been confiscated, red and green had been banned from a winter party, and a Christmas presentation had been ordered halted for Biblical themes, all three of which were later denounced as outright lies.

Despite this, Starnes been caught peddling outright lies yet again, this time claiming that students at a Colorado high school were banned from celebrating America:

Students and parents at a Colorado high school are outraged after administrators turned down their request for a spirit week day honoring America because it might offend non-Americans.

"They said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants," a 16-year-old member of the student council told me. "They just really did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable."

The student council at Fort Collins High School had proposed having a day to celebrate the United States during next week’s Winter Spirit Week. The young people pitched "'Merica Monday" – and invited their classmates to dress in patriotic colors. Their proposal was promptly shot down by administrators.

The school district has already released a statement correcting Starnes' "journalism." The theme had been rejected solely on the grounds that the slang word "Merica" was considered to be disrespectful.

The fact that this miserable hunk of excrement clumsily disguised as a human being is even permitted near a computer after so many willfully fraudulent exposes does not bode well for the future of journalism in America.
