The independent-minded and not-entirely predictable Ed Howard, editor of the online Nebraska State Paper, has unburdened himself of a visceral reaction again. And, being often a wise and perceptive fellow, he agrees with my general take on this. (This is from Friday’s edition of the daily email of headlines I get from StatePaper.)
Anne Coulter is a sick and sickening example of how politics and public discourse have been turned into a vulgar sideshow for morons without morals …
Remember the 9/11 attacks? Remember the people who burned to death, jumped to their deaths, or were crushed? Do you remember that a few widows got together and singlehandedly pressured Congress for an independent investigation?
Anne Coulter is an administration lapdog. She recently wrote that those widows are “harpies” and “witches.” She noted that the widows had often been on television, and said: “I’ve never seen people enjoy their husbands deaths so much.”
When confronted at a book signing, what act of these widows did she cite as especially deserving of such disgusting and inappropriate mistreatment? Some of them appeared in a television ad for John Kerry in the last presidential campaign.
Coulter is sick. People who will countenance what she said are morally deficient, or dumb, or both.
Come on, Ed. Tell us how you really feel about Anne.
Greetings in the name of Christ Jesus. Please permit me to comment on Ann Coulter.
I must ask: Since when is Ann Coulter a Biblical Christian? How do her actions evidence her new birth? I do not see God the Spirit within her actions.
For instance, consider the following:

From Godless: The Church of Liberalism, by Ann Coulter
“Throughout this book, I often refer to Christians and Christianity because I am a Christian and I have a fairly good idea of what they believe, but the term is intended to include anyone who subscribes to the Bible of the God of Abraham, including Jews and others.” [Footnote, pg. 3]

Her definition of “Christian” is theologically ambiguous. In fact, the ambiguity of her definition implies Interfaith theology, as evidenced by her assertion that “Jews are Christians.” Specifically, Biblical Christians, Judaist Jews, and Muslims lay claim to the “faith of Abraham,” including certain Biblical Scriptures about Abraham, but under different theological contexts. However, Interfaith talking points claim that this common focus of heritage represents theological commality.
In general, this quotation illustrates the perils of equivocating Republican Conservativism with Biblical Christianity. Contrary to popular notions, Republican Conservativism believes in the ambiguous “God” of “God, Duty, Country” Creedalism, not the ‘Elohiym of the Bible.
Since worldly politics and political punditry are involved, why should we expect anything less?
Thankfully God is bigger than the damage that Ann Coulter does everyday. Though not quite killing Christians, she, like the previous version of Paul, thinks she’s doing God a favor. How many times can you villify liberals, as if they’re not people, to the point of expendability? (referring to her comments about blowing up a newspaper building in New York)
Like what Jesus said to Peter, who wanted to call fire down from heaven, she doesn’t know what “spirit” she is influenced by. Her fruits are showing, and none of it includes those fruits of patience, kindness, gentleness, etc., but evil fruits of hatred, belligerence, etc. are showing clearly.
One thing I will say about her: She’s right about Jesus *not* being a weakling. He took horrific beatings and the crucifixion without fighting back, calling 10,000 angels, or even resisting. But she loves mentioning his handling of the moneychangers in the temple; what about his incredible, undeniable mercy and grace?
Thanks for listening.
I’m not sure Ann Coulter really believes the hateful filth she writes. I think she says what she says for the shock value. She will continue to “shock and awe” us with her filth as long as the media give her a platform.
