very, very strange.... heard about this today on campus @ K State, people tried to tell me about the "evil Christians" ...

but I was more interested in our new football coach. I know I shouldn't sound cynical, but I'm so used to these sorts of things being..not quite what they appear.

anyhow, hope he's not seriously injured.

"anyhow, hope he's not seriously injured."

Me too, I certainly hope he didn't beat himself half to death or anything quasi-suicidal like that.

There is no real confirmation of injuries in this piece. I am very skeptical. Why would people of the age group and description he gave be that interested in the controversy he prompted?

I keep remembering that woman activist who faked vandelism to her car on a college campus when I read this story.

"The sheriff’s department is looking for the suspects, described as two white males between ages 30 and 40, one wearing a red visor and wool gloves, and both wearing jeans. They were last seen in a large pickup truck."

If that was all they were wearing they shouldn't be too hard to find.

Heh. For Kansas, that's like the police blotter in Chicago saying, 'suspects were black males 20-30 years of age wearing baggy pants... Authorities request anyone seeing someone matching the description to call the police."

That's why making false reports is in the Crimes Code and the Eighth Commandment is in the Decalogue.

that was my first thought...hehe.

granted, it may very well be true, but it all just sounds rather strange.

@ 6:45am it's still dark here.
Plus it was freezing cold.
So You're being tailgated on your short drive into town.
You decide to pull over.
They follow you.
They get out of vehicle.
You get out of vehicle.
They attack you and verbally disparage your beliefs.
Then they drive off.

sorry, is it just me or does this sound rather strange?
anyhow, if its true I hope he gets well soon.

Like, you're telling me that you're alone and after being tailgated by two strangers you pull over and they do too and they get out and you wouldn't exit your vehicle too?

LOL!

The story smells.

The story smells bad. The favorite trick of the left is to pretend to be the victim when caught. My bet is no pickup. No stopping on the side of the road. No two rednecks. Just one leftist professor looking to make himself look like the victim.

Gosh, I dunno. That was a pretty precise description of the perps' vehicle--a "large pickup truck". You gotta believe he was there and went through it to get that kind of detail.

The only way the group he was mocking would hurt him would be if they got over zealous with the Bible thumping. Evangelizing is our style. If he got beat up he needs to look in his own back yard,

Yes; and who'd ever picture angry fundamentalists driving a "large pickup truck"? You just CAN'T make up that kind of authentic detail!!

As bright as this Harvard Divinity School graduate must be, I am sure he had the presence of mind to note and memorize the license number of the truck.

The again had he done that, there would likely already be an arrest.

I'm holding out for "no truck, no rednecks," just a liberal out trolling for some cheap victim-love.

It's indeed possible this is a hoax. But if it isn't, I'm compiling responses like this one from our resident 'Christians'.

No bet. Way too pat, and typical of the leftwing liars' strategy of defaming their opponents. A "red badge of courage" moment for another feckless leftwing geek.

I don't think he can expect any miraculous healing soon. If he has anything to heal, that is.

Sounds very fishy to me.

Maybe some Chinese gangsters mistook him for a nun, like those 16 in the other thread? How was he dressed at the time?

I'm sure the nun's stories are true and it was because of their religious belief. But, I'm not at all sure about this guy's story. Something tells me if he actually got beat up he was doing something he doesn't want to admit to.
