Sunday Reading

Why do the people who cloak their prejudices in the mantle of "christianity" always seem to use the most viscious quotes from the Moses part of the bible? My Sunday reading turned up any number of incitements.

Don Imus is a "pussy" compared to this nice lady:

Ann Coulter on mixed race relationships:

In describing the murders of doctors and health care personnel who worked at abortion clinics, Coulter said the victims had been shot, “…or, depending on your point of view, had a procedure performed on them with a rifle.”
She was speaking at Coral Gables Baptist Church.

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council on the story of Phineas:

Perkins use of the Scripture was only slightly less menacing than Coulter’s flippant analogy.“We read that Phineas arose and he took action…,” Perkins said.“Not only is prayer required…I warn you that if you begin to pray for our nation that, at some point in time, you’re gonna be prayin’ and you’re gonna feel a tap on your shoulder and hear, ‘Son, daughter, I’ve heard your prayer; now I want you to do something about it.’”

The story of Phineas is one of the more grusome old testament horrors. If you want to be in Mr. Perkins' "Family" I suppose you have to kill a couple of people with a pitchfork:

Why I think modern Conservatives are Evil

But having pointed all that out, I want everyone to know that I have a wonderfully optimistic view of where Tennessee College Students are headed. Two stories from the East Tennesean, the Student newspaper at ETSU"
