Conservative columnist Ann Coulter chastised Christian leaders and the Republican Party on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” for showing less “Christian courage” than the Indiana pizzeria taking a stand for religious freedom.

“Incidentally, man of steel Jeb Bush has backed down,” she mocked. “Look, they all have: [Indiana Governor Mike] Pence, Governor of Arkansas [Asa Hutchinson]…” (RELATED: Owners Of Indiana Pizzeria Opposed To Gay Marriage Receive Death Threats)

“Governor Bush will be sitting where you are sitting soon and we will see if he is going to back down or not,” O’Reilly said. “But, 80 percent of Americans describe themselves as Christian. 80 percent! Overwhelming. However, the 80 percent are getting thumped, they are losing by what, 5 percent, 8 percent? How did that happen?”

“Because these small town owners of pizzerias have more Christian courage than most Christian leaders, and certainly the Republican Party,” Coulter said. “I mean if the one thing — a few days before Easter, it’s worth mentioning besides eternal life with your Creator — the one thing every Christian should have is courage. The most important thing in your life.”

“Eternity is already taken care of!” she said. “Go out and fight! You are afraid of being sneered at by The New York Times? That is the one thing every Christian should have, and most of them don’t.”
