Beeotch Take-Down

Ann Coulter gets metaphorically spanked. I'd pay to see the real thing.

I love this stuff:

She (Coulter) has claimed that the Bible is her favorite book, she is rumored to go to church, and on the cover of Godless you see a cross dangling tantalizingly in her decolletage. But could anybody who absorbed the Sermon on the Mount write, as she does of Richard Dawkins, "I defy any of my coreligionists to tell me they do not laugh at the idea of Dawkins burning in hell"?
Christians are all about love and compassion, until they decide they don't like you, or don't like something you said or something you believe. Thank you, Ann, for demonstrating once again that the truth of Christianity is a very different thing than the rhetoric one hears in Sunday School.

Hey there JustaDrifter:
I don't think she is a good example of the proverbial "Good Christian." She is a sensationalized media icon who spews ridiculosity for ratings. There are some Christians who are Christian in name only, but others who really do try to be good people.

I am so saddened that Christians have acquired such a negative reputation, and it is part in parcel due to jerks who spew off at the mouth...

As a former deeply involved member (deacon, youth ministry leader, etc.) of a fundamentalist congregation, I know of a lot of Christians that are good people as long as you agree completely with them in every detail. I was abruptly shown the door for disagreeing on a ridiculously minor point that wasn't even a doctrinal issue in my book (age of the earth). Since then, most of the members pretend to not know who I am if they see me around town. Some are still friendly, but even then, it is pretty clear that I wouldn't be welcomed back unless I "mend my ways". My family pretty much hate me (exact quote from my father: "I had hoped to spend eternity in heaven with my whole family, but I guess that isn't going to happen now."). The pressure on my wife and I nearly split us up, as a little browsing through the archives here clearly show.

So I figure if that's the way I get treated for having a difference of opinion on something that silly, I'd better start doing some hard-core studying, which I have done. Which has caused me to pretty much abandon most of what I have believed for 40 years. Talk about unintended consequences.

Oh, and thanks for stopping by. I got so busy venting, I forgot my manners.
