Skip to comments.WashPost Columnist: Christians Spew the Most ‘Hateful Internet Speech’
Posted on 07/19/2014 7:55:52 AM PDT by markomalley
Everyone is exactly who he or she says on the internet at least according to one Washington Post writer. That conclusion is her rationale to say Christians are awful people.
Sally Quinn, Washington Post columnist and OnFaith founder, claimed that, When it Comes to Hateful Internet Speech, Christians Are the Worst. In her July 17 article, Quinn examined a white-supremacist site and comments on her articles to conclude that Christian haters need a place to unleash their dark sides.
For her introduction, Quinn pointed at white-supremacist Stormfront to note how the site targeted others: 39 percent Jews, 33 percent blacks, 13 percent Hispanics, 11 percent Muslims and 3 percent other. This led me to surmise that many of the haters are white Christians, she said. The perfect example! Find a fringe hate site and blame it on Christians. She clearly didn't spend any time at left-wing sites.
When she founded OnFaith eight years ago, Quinn lamented how, the first hate emails I received were horrible. She explained: I cant tell you how many people wrote in to say that I was a whore and a slut and so much worse that I cant even write it here. And these all came from Christians.
If they are anonymous, she argued, they can be the worst versions of themselves. Or, you know, imposters. Quinn didnt concede that.
Although almost anyone can be a Christian, according to a previous comment by Quinn. As one of the five lessons she learned as an editor, she once listed God is what you or I or anyone else says God is.
But she did search for an answer. I talked to Christian theologians, pastors, and scholars because I truly didnt understand where all this Christian hatred was coming from. She concluded, Perhaps they have bought into the popular notion that Christians are the new religious victims in this country. Just a "notion," mind you.
She continued, Maybe they feel guilty about their own sins. Maybe they are afraid of going to hell. Maybe they are frustrated because they have to actually act like Christians in real life and need a place to unleash their dark sides.
As a result, she found a big difference between being Christian and following the teachings of Jesus. In fact, sometimes those two things can be polar opposites, she stressed, because our Christian haters clearly paid little attention to Jesus.
Although she admitted receiving atheist hate mail of more intellectual persuasion, she has never received any personal hate mail from a Jew, a Muslim, a Hindu, a Buddhist, a pagan, an agnostic, or a humanist.
Quinn overflows with Christian charity herself from blaming Christians for a military culture of sexual assault to claiming Pope Francis could possibly have been involved in a scandal.
Another deranged leftist journalist weighs in.
Very succinct, and very powerful post.
I think that the phrase “Christian haters” should apply to people like Sally Quinn who hate Christians.
Stormfront is her evidence? Guess she’s never read more mainstream Democrat sites like DU!
This woman wasn’t surfing the internet and ‘low and behold’ ran across a hate site. She was given the information by a handler who had an agenda.
Hey Sally Quinn - most of us would be more than happy to point you in the direction of left wing hate sites... Also, if you want to do this right, check with the FBI and find out how many of those ‘haters’ on the right are undercover cops working the political gig for Obama. Now THAT’S real hate...
What an intellectual lightweight. Did she go to the Daily Kos or Huff Post - or even comments following articles at the WP and NYT? If you want to see hate, it is there in plain view. To a liberal/democtrat, any speech with which they disagree is hate speech.
Sally Quinn is a drunken adulteress who screwed her way to celebrity status.
She was the mistress of married Post editor Ben Bradlee.
Later on, she was a morning host on CBS TV where in an article she admitted to getting regularly drunk with co-host Hughes Rudd after their show.
Only because of her relationship with her husband Bradlee is this ageing slut allowed to have a column in the Post.
The rest of her time is giving or going to parties.
I would consider anyone who is a Stormfronter to by definition not be a Christian.
That is, of course, by my definition, but I have plenty of scriptural arguments to back up that definition. Stormfront is based on racism and racialism. The Bible contains zero of either. The Bible writers just didn’t care about such things.
So, of course her logic follows that God hates women.
She can always move to Iraq and join ISIS.
They feel the same way about Christians.
Not to mention that Stormfront probably has only a few hundred real users. There are probably more government spooks and leftist snitches there than there are true Stormfront believers.
“that Christian haters need a place to unleash their dark sides.
Yes its apparent she is a Christian hater. Probably hates Jews too.
Sally Quinn. IMO, THE DC Liberal Politician Fluffer socialite.
This is an example when a reporter narrows their research too much and uses it to make a broad brush conclusion on the community as a whole...
Fifth-columnist Sally Quinn exceeds that with this leftist hate speech of hers as she does obeisance to the Liberal Lie: "All beliefs are to be tolerated except those that are not tolerant."
