Ann Coulter and the Art of “Not Helping”

No one has ever mastered the art of “not helping” your argument or position better than Ann Coulter. As a pastor I cringe every time I hear she is defending Christianity, or attacking liberals in the name of Christianity. Al Mohler did a good job of putting her in her place a few months ago, and now I pray an evangelical will do it again.

Falwell was a perfected Christian. He exuded Christian love for all men, hating sin while loving sinners. This is as opposed to liberals, who just love sinners. Like Christ ministering to prostitutes, Falwell regularly left the safe confines of his church to show up in such benighted venues as CNN.

Actually, there was one small item I think Falwell got wrong regarding his statement after 9/11 that “the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians — who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle — the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say, ‘You helped this happen.’

First of all, I disagreed with that statement because Falwell neglected to specifically include Teddy Kennedy and “the Reverend” Barry Lynn. “

If I were a Falwell supporter I would be yelling, “shut up. you are not helping. go away.”

note: for a good eulogy read what Ben Cole wrote.
