On the Election Day edition of Daystar's Joni, while guest Kelly Shackelford of the Liberty Institute was mentioning the story about a high school valedictorian from Texas who wanted to say a prayer during her graduation speech, Joni Lamb (the show's host and also the co-host of Celebration with her husband Marcus) made a quote attacking anyone who didn't conform to her very narrow worldview by stating that "if you don't like that America is a [conservative] 'Christian Nation', then you shouldn't live here."

Also at the table was notorious history revisionist liar David Barton, Benita Arterberry, and Cindy Murdock.

Dear Joni, I have some news to break to you: America has NOT been a "Christian Nation" (except demographically), despite what many people of your ilk like to wish it as such.

From the 11.06.2012 edition of Daystar's Joni:

Right Wing Watch:

During the discussion, Shackelford mentioned a legal fight that took place in Texas last year over a high-school valedictorian who wanted to say a prayer during her graduation speech.  The student ultimately won the right to do so, which prompted host Joni Lamb to declare it a victory for free speech, saying "that if you live in America and you understand that we are a Christian society then you can't be offended by things like that or you shouldn't live here."
