what i find odd, is that this statement was apparently going to far, but saying the following is ok,
"We need to execute people like John Walker in order to physically intimidate liberals, by making them realize that they can be killed too"

Its ok to threaten to kill well over half the population of the U.S. ,, but dont ever EVER, talk bad about the jews.

Pretty hard to watch, even Savage was ripping her a new one.

You are not on national TV claiming to be speaking for others...

Shall I name a few examples?

Fred Phelps - good solid Christian obviously since he is still a member of the fold.

Swaggert comes to mind as does God Is Gonna Strike Me Dead If You Don't Give Me The Money.

Mark Foley, David Vitter, and that ilk are also shining examples, I'm sure.

Did you know David Duke and ol' Adolf Hitler are among the Christians?

Nothing personal, but so long as good decent folks align themselves with these slimeballs under the same banner, then you will all be judged by the slimeballs among you.

So the 9 religious crusades and the many religious hangings meant nothing?

Should you? I doesn't matter. The list would have nothing to do with Christains which IS germaine to whether or not Ann Coulter is one of them. And your personal attacks have no bearing on the subject either.

The simple fact is that I have made a sound arguement and your only valid rebuttal is that not everyone who calls themselves a Christian is in fact a Christian. That sounds good, but who decides who is and isn't a Christian? You? Ann Coulter? Fred Phelps? Therein lies the problem with your rebuttal. Unless Christians start publicly denouncing those who claim membership in the club, then anyone who claims to be a Christian IS a Christian and a valid representative of Christianity.

I appreciate your personal denouncement of the aforementioned people, but that does not detract from their claims to Christianity. Anyone can claim to be a Christian because Christians have not sat down and agreed among themselves what a Christian is. Christians readily accepted Hitler and supported him long after it became obvious he was anything but a follower of Jesus. Why? Because they weren't either. And no one in all of Christianity had the cajones to demand that he be renounced publicly by Christian leaders of all denominations. And it's not just Hitler. Churches everywhere turn a blind eye to child molestors in the pulpits or deacons chairs. They cover upspousal abuses, alcoholism, adultry, etc. etc. in theior congregations and focus on the "sins" of others. THAT is Christianity today. It is not what Jesus taught by a long shot.

In no way do any of those attributes describe a christian...although, by typing those in, the first two do represent you.

Should I name examples of asshole athiests? What about that Stalin guy? He was super nice. Odd that someone like Hitler and Stalin can be so much alike?

Point being people who label themselves as a christian, and the term christian are two different things.

If you're a poet, can I then assume all poets are judgemental? What fantastic logic.

You are an excellent stereotyper. The best. Anyone can find negative examples in any good ideal.

I'm not sure she even represents humanity. She definitely is not a spokes person for women with any intellect, and I am sure that most Republicans are even shaking their heads.

Of course NOT the far right wingers. AND except for VERY FANATICAL Christians I believe you would be very hard put to find true believers siding with her or giving her a vote of confidence.

I believe her audience are far right fanatical ultra conservative right wingers.

BUT,,,, I have been wrong a time or two, so don't count that as a judgemental statement! (Ha Ha)

To me they mean nothing. People have used good causes for political gain for all of mans history. The tenets of Christianity are still not represented by these acts. And still, neither is Ann Coulter.

That's a weak argument Jugg.

Here: I publically denounce those you listed as Christian, and yes it offends me that they use that title.

Anyone can label themselves Christian, and even Christ forsaw this. There is some scripture about those that will profess me with their mouths, but yea their hearts are far from me. Something like that.

I didn't mean to get peronsal, I was just using it as an example. I did take your last rebuttal personally. When you slander a group in general and someone belongs to that group, then it will be taken personally. Poets are... Gays are... Blacks are... Women are... If you fall into any of those groups, and what follows the ... are negative attributes, then yes it will be taken personally.

I don't align myself with these people you listed, Nor do I believe that Anne Coulter or any of them represent Christianity.

I think she is a nut. Not only does she totally misunderstand Christianity, but she says this on national TV, to a Jew, shes done for. I'm not normally arguing for religion, but she is not a good representation of Christianity.


She is out there voting.... buuuuuhhhh.
