Tonight, The Daily Show aired a field piece featuring Samantha Bee highlighting the true victims of intolerance in the gay marriage debate: evangelical Christians. Bee found a right-wing radio host who finds himself oppressed by the intolerant voices of people he does not tolerate, and used his example to show just how rough Christians have it. Or not. Bee sat there listening to ravings about gay people “find[ing] straights to beat up” and mockingly assuaged his fears, walking with him on the street and yelling at people not to judge him. Bee narrated how there are “so few places where [Christians] can safely congregate” except for pretty much everywhere in the country.
