Fox News host Pete Hegseth and Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family, argued on Sunday that Christian children should bring their Bibles to school in order to evangelize against marriage rights for LGBT people.
While appearing on Fox & Friends, Daly defended NFL quarterback Drew Brees, who promoted “Bring Your Bible To School Day.”
Brees has come under fire for appearing in a video linked to Focus on the Family, a conservative Christian organization that has been described as a “hate group” for its anti-LGBT views.
“There’s a small segment of society that doesn’t want the Christian society to express our values,” Daly opined. “I’m so proud of Drew Brees for doing this… It’s a great way for young people to learn how to express their faith in a country that allows them the freedom to do so.”
“We don’t hate anybody,” he continued. “We have a different idea, a biblical idea of what the definition of marriage is.”
Hegseth, who hosted the segment, insisted that “there’s no real tolerance” in the U.S. if Brees is criticized for associating with an anti-LGBT group.
“This is all instigated by left-wing groups who ultimately hate what you stand for and want to create this divide,” Hegseth said.
“They want to caricature us and Drew Brees in this case as something evil, dark and horrible,” Daly agreed. “It’s not true. We love all people. We do.”
“And yet we still have principles that we need to live by,” he said. “They want everyone to succumb to their idea, their world view of what it means to be married. And I’m telling you, you know, for 2,000 years, we have followed the teachings of Christ and we’re going to continue to do so. I’m just saying it would be nice to be able to pull together, have a discussion.”
“They’ve won the battle,” Daly remarked. “Now is it can they serve at the table and allow others to have a different opinion.”
Hegseth concluded the segment by saying there should be a “debate” about marriage rights for LGBT people.
“We can have different views on marriage but ultimately we live in a free society where you should be able to have the different views and debate it,” he stated.

Brian Williams compares Corey Lewandowski’s opening statement to the North Korean news lady
MSNBC host Brian Williams on Tuesday noted the similarities between former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and North Korean news anchor Ri Chun Hee.
"Corey Lewandowski, the former Trump campaign manager who is now considering a Senate run in New Hampshire, testified before the House Judiciary Committee today," Williams reported. "It is likely his North Korean anchorwoman-quality opening remarks were meant were one viewer (Donald Trump)."
Ri, who has earned the nickname "Pink Lady," is known for her enthusiastic reading of government-approved news.

‘Train-wreck of a witness’: Analysts nail ‘obstructive’ Corey Lewandowski for proving the Democrats’ case
Political commentator Catherine Rampell disagreed with New York Times columnist Frank Bruni that the Democrats faltered during the hearing with Corey Lewandowski Tuesday. Former state and federal prosecutor Elie Honig called Lewandowski a "train-wreck of a witness."
She explained that Democrats had an extremely low bar: they had to prove Trump obstructed justice and that Corey Lewandowski gave one of the examples of such obstructions. In that sense, Rampell said they accomplished their goals.
"I don’t think this was a great day for Corey Lewandowski," she began. "This is a guy who went on TV and announced to the world -- apparently at the same time he is also trying to fundraise for Senate -- that he lies most of the time. Except when he's under oath."
WATCH: Ana Navarro keeps shouting down Trump booster — even as CNN host cuts to commercial
President Donald Trump cheered on his top Hispanic advisor Steve Cortes, who appeared before a New Mexico audience. Trump asked Cortes which he loved more, Hispanics or America, which prompted CNN's Ana Navarro to blast the president for racism. Meanwhile, Trump's latest CNN shill cried "political correctness."
"Look, I suspect he didn't want to offend Steve Cortes and I suspect Steve Cortes was not offended," Navarro said. "But really what a stupid thing to say. Right? To somehow ask the question about whether you love the country more than you love Hispanics -- they are one and the same."
