Looks like a phony story to me. They beat him up with a metal object but he's out with just a few bruises? Sounds like Susan Smith and the mythical black carjacker. I'd love to see some hospital photos of the injuries. Sounds self-inflicted.

"If he is spewing and spreading anti-religious hatred, I say he deserved it. Yes we have free speach. But all that means is you won't get arrested. That doesn't entitle you to not pay a price for your actions. I certainly wouldn't go into Camden NJ or Philly yelling the 'N' word. I'm free to do so, but I'm pretty sure I'd be a little worse for wear than the guy in the article."

One of the posters on this thread is now sitting in a dark room feverishly collecting posts. Oddly enough, this same character went on defending the guy's right to be rude and abusive. Probably more out of unspoken agreement with Mirecki's sentiments.

I responded, much in the same manner as you mentioned in your post--that schmucks like Mirecki make these comments in a 'safe' environment, and they wouldn't dare say the same in a back alley or other less hospitable environments. If the story is true, then it bothers me, since Mirecki comes awfully close to uttering 'fighting words'. I can't say that I necessarily feel sympathy for the guy, but then again, it is regretful that society is coming to this--after all, the last acceptable bigotry seems to be slamming Christians, and it seems some are running out of cheeks to turn.

Sorry guys, but I simply CANNOT resist a pun this juicy.
















Does this put him in the running for a...DARWIN award?

(Ducks for exit, donning asbestos.)

Full Disclosure: Yes I KNOW what the Darwin really is. But I've gotta stretch a point for a pun like this.

Cheers, and G'night!

A truly Christian response.

Let alone folks who make fun of other folks for "quote mining" only to do it themselves.

Some of these folks could use some better control, though. Not that I ever go over the top, of course. Who, me?

It is my understanding that the person in question has to kick the bucket to win the award, though. Injury will only get you an honorable mention.

Do you want to borrow my asbestos chaps? I really need to get better at Photoshop.

Good point.

These schmuck's do not seem to understand that they would be the first to be crushed if they got their withes ie; we went away.

Tyranny always crushes academia first, after it corrupts and prostitutes it.

I'm not buying this for a minute....the left fakes way too many things for me to accept this as genuine.

A pickup, white males, etc.....far too convenient. Reminds me of that black female professor who trashed her own car and claimed some racist whites did it to her. CBS faked quite a few things, now this?

Do they think we are totally ignorant like their followers?

"I don't know that I wish him well. If he is spewing and spreading anti-religious hatred, I say he deserved it."

Yes, brother! Preach it! That heathen professor deserved to be beaten in Jesus' name! Hope these two saints visit him tomorrow and cap the heathen's a$$ to show him how merciful and loving God is.

I think this professor Mirecki is another one of THESE clowns:

Professor Kerri Dunn vandalized her own car and then led student protests against "hate". It didn't take long for the police to uncover that the vandalism was Dunn's own handiwork.



What I'm saying is, I think this professor Mirecki beat himself up.

He lives in town and the closest rural road from his house to IHOP is 31st street and that is a a four lane pot holed mess that is the "bypass" for 10 highway.

The two perps he speaks of? Probably a sock and a bar of soap. Just flip it back at himself and he could beat himself up pretty good that way.

LOL!

I'd bet he was beat up by his girlfriend. If two men beat him with a "metal object", he wouldn't be talking to anybody right now.

Count me among those who are not particularly eager to discredit the reality of this beating. If it happened, my day is not ruined.

The constitution does not and can not guarantee us protection from people inflamed to hostility by our ugly and taunting utterances.

Most police agencies have to triage their cases and don't do any major sleuthing on minor assaults. I would hope that this incident falls into that category. This butthole was lucky that it was a lite ruffing up.
