NPR Reporter Says Christians Should Burn

NPR Reporter Says Christians Should 'Burn' by Terry Phillips, correspondent

Hateful voice mail message to conservative group leads to resignation. A National Public Radio (NPR) reporter has resigned after a hateful voice mail message she left for a conservative group was made public.

Rachel Buchman worked for WHYY in Philadelphia, an NPR affiliate, when she called the offices of the Web site laptoplobbyist.com to express her outrage over an e-mail the group sent to her opposing special rights for homosexuals.

"You're evil, horrible people. You're awful people," she said, identifying herself only as "Rachel." "You represent horrible ideas. God hates you and He wants to kill your children. You should all burn."

Chris Carmouche, publisher of laptoplobbyist.com, said he's accustomed to liberals being offended by his group's moral stands—but added that Buchman's message was over the top.

"We want people to know that this is not an isolated incident," he said. "People have to realize there's not just a media bias, but in many cases there is a media hatred, toward anything conservative, Christian or traditional."

After Carmouche posted a recording of Buchman's message on his Web site, she apologized for "a personal matter that was turned into a public issue."

"Rather than call my journalistic integrity into question," she said. "I decided to resign for personal reasons." Carmouche said it's too late for her professional reputation to be salvaged.

"Conservatives will no longer tolerate the reporting of liberal vitriol as fact," he told The Washington Times. "We will not tolerate the Dan Rathers of the world spoon-feeding the public liberal propaganda. And we will call the 'old media' to account when they make their biases and bigotries obvious and deviate from commonly acceptable standards of journalism."

FOR MORE INFORMATION Take a closer look at the mainstream media's liberal bias by reading the CitizenLink commentary "Cheering in the Press Box" by Gary Schneeberger.

Rachel = typical poster child for the Democrat Party

...an example of why I will never trust a liberal again.

I know "Christians" who say NPR is the best source for news. I have argued the point and argued the point and they just do not get it.

Re #1

I know Rachels of the world quite well. Their over-the-top hatred somehow go hand in hand with the smug attitude that they are more reasoned and sophisticated.

In reality, they are nothing more than petty zealots.

Good thing. I doubt her so-called journalistic integrity would stand up to close scrutiny.

Some of the nicest, most amiable people I know are gay.
But when a "Christian" speaks quotes scripture all of the sudden the vitriolic hated comes pouring out automatically trying to defend what they KNOW is purely selfish behavior.

I hope she learns the ropes in the soup and unemployment lines. I would have to consider her another one of kerri's rabid supporters who got lost in the crack pipe world. My words for her would be, "Your mind is a terrible thing to waste go stomp it out."

Let's really piss her off.

Rachel, I forgive you. I pray for your soul. I pray that the Lord will open your eyes to the hatred and malice that envelop you. I pray that you will see how much harm and pain you cause society by forwarding the notion that sexual deviancy is anything other than a severe mental illness that must be treated so that such individuals can join society again. I pray that you realize that you are supporting the agenda of a cult of death wherer the life expectancy is only 40 years before the succomb to an unatural and avoidable ailment.

I pray that when you open your eyes, you will see that most empirical data supports that such lifestyles are not only against all natural principles of design of the human body but that no matter whether you believe in God, Gaea or Darwin, you cannot simply deny years of design and evolution by simply gazing dreamily down at the evidence that God has lain before you and say "That's not what they meant".

You'll realize all this some day. We hope it's sooner than later, for the sake of your eternal soul.

How's that?!? The really hard part on her is that I mean it.

Hitler espoused the same ideas and solutions as Rachel's people were being sent to the gas chambers. Sick stuff.

"a personal matter that was turned into a public issue."

Not very bright are you? Bigotry is always a personal matter until you open your big yap. This is what happens when you "think" you morally superior; a liberal disease.

"Rather than call my journalistic integrity into question," she said. "I decided to resign for personal reasons."

Too funny. Next you'll be telling me the world is flat.

Carmouche said it's too late for her professional reputation to be salvaged.

Not really. Go find a brain, take an objective and serious look at your liberal principles, compare then with conservative principles; have a genuine epiphany, and tell the world about it how you have changed.

We will take you in from the cold world and help you. We are friendly.

Homosexual Agenda PING

The Agenda is not only pushed by the Homosexual Lobby, but also by their enablers in the left-wing media. This is evidence of how "tolerant" they truly are.

I fully expect the hate towards Christians to increase as we get closer to the 2008 elections.

Let me or littlejeremiah know if you want on or off the pinglist

If she does end up utilizing a soup line she's going to be very uncomfortable when she discovers that the vast majority of those doing the volunteer work on the other side of the line are those same Christians she wants burned.

Why in the hell can't we either defund the NPR or at least get some more balance in their programming?

We now control of the the Congress and the Presidant--can't we get some accountability?

You got yourself one of those modern new-fangled brains, huh. The kind that can be wash out with just soap & water?
Kewl. {~now doesn't *that* make ya just wanna hurl?}
I've still the "old" kinda brain, gotta drain, refill & replace the filter. Just like changing oil on a Chevy. ;^)

OK enough lame attempts at wit.
Here's *my* top 3 quotes, in decending order, just *like* David Letterman does it.

#3:"'Rather than call my journalistic integrity into question,' she said..."

:o)

#2: "'I decided to resign for personal reasons.'"

;^)

And now, drum roll, please...

#1:"'Carmouche said it's too late for her professional reputation to be salvaged.'"

Gee y'think?

And to think, NPR -- National Public Radio -- employed this one.

~sigh~

...think she's the exception at NPR? {g}
