Evangelicals and the Coulter affair
World Net Daily ^ | August 23, 2010 | Joseph Farah

Posted on 08/23/2010 4:54:09 PM PDT by Sola Veritas

.................I believe that's what Jesus meant when He told us to love our enemies. The ultimate demonstration of love for a Christian should be to evangelize the lost.

There is no indication Ann Coulter has ever used one of her paid speaking engagements to do this. In fact, I'm not even sure a paid speaking engagement is an appropriate forum for evangelizing.

Nevertheless, I have heard from a few Christians who compare Coulter's paid speaking gig to Homocon with Jesus sitting down with tax collectors and sinners.

That is not good discernment.

Coulter is a political activist, a pundit, a satirist. She is not Jesus. And she is not an evangelist. No one is likely to get saved at Homocon because Ann Coulter gives a conservative stump speech.

What will happen as a result of her appearance is that a compromise will be made with sin. Sin will be condoned or appeased. A conservative icon will find accommodation with a sin that would undermine the foundations of Western civilization, the Judeo-Christian ethic and the most basic biblical standards of sexual morality.

I look forward to your similarly blasting your "good man" FARAH, for doing virtually the SAME THING.

Not the same thing, nice try, going on some sodomite's show for an interview is not the same thing as being a keynote speaker at a homo bash. Farah was invited I'm sure only because of this dustup with Coulter, something which seems to be delighting the activist queer community.

All Farah did in the interview was reaffirm his position AGAINST gay marriage, against the practice of homosexuality as a legit lifestyle according to the Bible, reaffirmed his position on the birther issue, called Coulter an outright liar as far as the booking of her on his conference which she has denied, basically said or did nothing in the interview to appease, encourage, excuse, apologize or legitimize sodomitic behavior.

Not sure why he felt the need to go on these shows but he did and not only attacked Coulter because of her apparent embracement of homosexuals, but attacked homosexuality itself as going against the Law of God, now only if Coulter were to be so bold, well we know how she sneers at birtherism, maybe her next tactic is to call Farah a homophobe. Ya think?

Farah told Signorile that he was fed up with the conservative movement, and criticized conservatives for embracing members of the gay community who share beliefs on issues like taxes, health care and the role of government.

“This is my beef with conservatism: it’s always losing ground,” Farah told Signorile. “That’s why I don’t consider myself a conservative.”

Very interesting quote.

Seems Mr. Farah is enjoying the spotlight. He's the one who started this brouhaha and is the one keeping it alive. He was also on Rusty Humphries show last night talking about it and was giddy over the whole thing. He didn't sound like "the decision was a gut-wrenching one for his team because of their fondness for Coulter as both a person and writer-speaker."

Publicity whore indeed!

To my knowledge, Ann has been on one show (Red Eye) and given one email interview (The Daily Caller). She was on Hannity's radio show today, but I don't think the subject was discussed (I didn't hear the whole interview, so I could be wrong). The point is; she's not the one keeping it alive.

Yea, I think they're one of the ones that have lost their way on homosexual issues.

Only the PCUSA, which is supposedly the main Presbyterian denomination. However their losses to smaller, more theologically conservative Presbyterian denominations have called that into question. Keep in mind that Coulter spends most of her free time in Florida, not Connecticut these days.

Yes = you should shut your vociferous pie-hole and try improving your reading comprehension & search skills - as the topics have been covered many times on FR. No = you're just a disengenuous a$$hole who's trolling in favor of the homosexual agenda.

You should learn to read, you illiterate little POS. I never said I didn't know what a RINO was, but what a "Log Cabin RINO" was.

People here on FreeRepublic love to make up little epithets which refer to any number of real or imagined ideas, and these cutesy little nicknames replicate and morph like a disease. It is what the mouthbreathers like yourself try to pass of as intellectual argumentation. There are also popular phrases to refer to specific people or events mixed through. Having no way to know which one you were using, and thinking you seemed an honest enough guy (boy was I wrong) I simply asked. Where I come from this is both natural, and reasonable. Not for you. Fine.

So, nevermind. Just do us all a favor and go play in the freeway.

>>but what a "Log Cabin RINO" was.
 
A Republic is a system of governance, characterized by the Rule of Law - and when the Law Fails, the Republic Fails.
 
How does the Law fail?  Well one way it fails is when vociferous wolves in RINO skin, like you, pervert Liberty - which comes from God - with the fatal liberality of trading His Truth for lies in your support of the abomination of Nature.
 

Maybe a sudden infusion of energy from the Viking Kitties will help your weak dendrites to form a permanent connection between  RINO - and facilitators of the Log Cabin Homosexual agenda, such as yourself.

Not the same. Farah isn’t called the “Judy Garland of the Right” with cutesy pictures of him. He didn’t receive any money. He is not a keynote speaker. It is unclear what he said to the homosexual activist who wants to destroy family and marriage in the US. (I have read on the thread since last night so maybe that part has been made clear.)

We do not know what Coulter is going to say until she says it.

Farah did not insult or slam Coulter the way she has him, publicly and nastily.

We will see. You’re gloating about Michelangelo Signorile’s intever with Farah is pretty disugsting. That man is an abominable destructive enemy of all that is good.

It's apparent that you don't. This is a "sleight of hand" argument. Nobody has faulted Coulter for going on lib shows and giving her opinion. Farrah simply gave his opinion also. A radio interview is not a political group.

The problem is headlining a radical homosexual convention. Get back to me when Farrah headlines at a homosexual convention.

Yes, I know what RINO means. It was the Log Cabin reference I am not, or was not at that moment, familiar with. For all I knew it was something that holier-than-thou sphincter made up to be amusing, as so many people do around here, and so I asked. My mistake for assuming people on this site were capable of conversation. I am being increasingly disabused of that notion.

This site is going downhill. There was a time you could come here and talk about conservative issues, get new outlooks, find background and get some laughs about the sometimes grim future. It was a great place to fine-tune your point of view, and have a good time while you did it. The liberals were the bad guys, not other conservatives. We felt outnumbered in society and so enjoyed some company among like minded people. This was a respite. But, no more. Now the trash that populates this site seem to think they are in some super-secret club, and everybody else is a spy trying to get their secret handshake. Losers.

It's not likely that Ms. Coulter will be "enlightening" the sodomites at HomoCon to the evils of homosexuality. Based on their expectations, they'd be in good standing to ask Coulter for a "refund" if she does:

Here's what GOProud, the homosexual organization sponsoring HomoCon has to say about Coulter:

"Gay Conservatives to Party With Ann Coulter at 'Homocon 2010'
The gay conservative group GOProud — whose platform is essentially "cut taxes, while being gay" — is hosting a party called "Homocon 2010" with Ann Coulter, "The Right Wing Judy Garland." Fun! But isn't Ann Coulter mean to gay people?

Slate's Dave Weigel asked GOProud executive director Jimmy LaSalvia about an incident in Ann Coulter's past involving a certain gay epithet, and whether GOProud cares:

Coulter's never been as concerned with social issues as the median conservative pundit. She does, however, like to use gay stereotypes when she mocks liberals — she was slapped on the wrist for calling John Edwards a "faggot" at the 2007 Conservative Political Action Conference. No big deal, says LaSalvia.

"We are not concerned about what the PC crowd has to say," he says. "This is about having fun. I don't agree with everything she has said in her lifetime, just like she doesn't agree with everything I've ever said....but we can still party together, right?"

He raises an interesting point, about humans being able to have fun together, despite having battled on political things in the past. We'll have to consider this provocative new idea.

I asked you a question you barbaric little twit, and you refused to answer with anything but invective and contumely.

...[Joseph Farah] Coulter because of her apparent embracement of homosexuals...
I think that this is at the heart of the problem:
Ann truly LIKES many gay people, and THEY really like her.
Many social conservatives seem to fear that Ann's close association with them on such a PERSONAL level will eventually effect her on a POLITICAL level.
And, they **could** be right -- if it wasn't ANN we were talking about.
But, her very good friend BARBARA OLSON [who died on 9/11 in the hijacked plane that hit the Pentagon]'s widower, TED OLSON, may be an example of what they fear might happen to Ann.
Ted Olson, who recently led the legal battle to get California's pro-"one man, one woman"-marriage Proposition 8 overturned in the courts, seems to have been influenced to support gay marriage by his new (much younger) lefty wife.

But, "you" are not FreeRepublic. I hate lying jerks. People who call me a queer because they just don't read the posts piss me off. Since I don't like what you say I suppose I could just start insisting that you are promoting the homosexual agenda. Wouldn't that be a brilliant deduction? How about instead of suggesting I leave you take the time to oppose lies and calumny? I don't see you carrying out that Christian work here?

Yes, you are right in that, but I guess I get sick of being called things by people who won't either read the posts, or just act like conservatives and Christians. It really does piss me off, and I get angry. I shouldn't have to drop off of threads because ignorant people think it is amusing to just randomly call people queers. That is seemingly becoming a regular practice on this site these days. Am I the only person who notices it?

Perhaps.

I'm not yet convinced that she won't say SOMETHING to tweak their "lifestyle."

But, I will GUARANTEE that she will challenge them on gay marriage.
Here's a (somewhat garbled) first-hand account of what Ann said a few months ago -- at a "question and answer" session after her speech at UCLA:
...Ann Coulter likes gay people. She has lots of gay friends!

So many gays support her that if you went to West Hollywood and said you didn't like her, all the hair stylists would refuse to cut your hair.

But she doesn't want them to marry. They don't want to marry, they told her themselves. They just support gay marriage because it's a nice symbol of public acceptance.

Isn't that the whole point of being gay anyway, that you don't have to marry?

She's not anti-gay, she's just pro-family.

She also opposes single mothers. Did you know that such and such criminal was raised by a single mother?

Who knows what weird stuff will happen to children raised by gay couples?

Having heard Ann speak in this kind of forum in the past, I'm sure that HER timing and delivery were MUCH BETTER than this left-leaning graduate student's paraphrasing would indicate....
...but I think that her position on gay marriage comes through CRYSTAL CLEAR.

I don’t leave a thread. I just ignore posts from people that I don’t want to converse with. If it’s posted to me, I check who posted it and if they are trouble, I don’t read it. It takes practice. We are taught from childhood to respond when addressed. But as adults, we really CAN ignore aggravation.

You know what a Log Cabin RINO is because you see one every time you look in the mirror of your own fatal liberality.

I’d say the main difference between FR now, and FR when I signed up (2002) is that there are tons of homosexual agenda promoters - used to just be a couple here and there, who would eventually (or quickly, depending...) get banned. Also there are tons of leftists 0thugga hirelings. So I’d say, yes, there is some difference.

I think the general anxiety level is way up all over, since the leftists are busily destroying every vestige of what has made this country good.

In my years here I’ve learned to have a thicker skin, and sort of “read between the lines” to get peoples’ motivation and intent behind the typed word. Sometimes you can’t, but a lot of times you can, especially if you’re familiar with that particular person.

I have repeatedly said that if she criticizes the GOProud’s legislative agenda which is “All Gay - All the Way” except for the nod to the 2nd Amendment, I will be the first to be happily surprised and give credit where credit is due.

But her words and actions up to this point, the “Judy Garland of the Right” crap and the stated “All Gay - All the Way” agenda of the GOProud group would give any rational person doubts about what her purpose is in speaking.

Either you're not as well informed on conservativism as you pretend to be - or - you DO know what the Log Cabin agenda is about, but pretend otherwise.
 
Either way what you're proping up is a facade.

You may be right, but I am not sure. Right now there is a neandertal on this thread stating that I am a member of this "homosexual agenda." Have I defended anything like that on this thread, or any other? No. I have argued very strongly against homosexual marriage on a number of threads, and have argued on religious threads about the evils of homosexuality and sodomy. How many of these "tons" of promoters are people like me who are being called it just because I didn't use the right code words or something?

I think the general anxiety level is way up all over, since the leftists are busily destroying every vestige of what has made this country good.

That makes sense, and I can see it. But, it doesn't help if we turn that anxiety on our own and attack other conservatives for no reason at all. It never helps defeat the enemy to make the people in your own army targets too.

In my years here I’ve learned to have a thicker skin, and sort of “read between the lines” to get peoples’ motivation and intent behind the typed word. Sometimes you can’t, but a lot of times you can, especially if you’re familiar with that particular person.

I know what you mean, and generally I really don't get too worked up. But, this thing of telling super personal lies, calling me a queer for instance, really does bug the crap out of me. But, it happens that I just got off a thread with a poster using the same exact technique, i.e. if the post is more than five words assume it is a disagreement and make up things about the other person. After listening to that crap and then immediately getting it here just really pissed me off.

Really? I haven't noticed a large contingent of homosexual agenda promoters on FR. Can you provide examples or do you just assume that those who don't condemn Ann for making a speech at this conference must also support the homosexual agenda?

When I signed up in 2002, my main purpose was to read news and commentary, and fight the homosexual agenda. I was very sick at the time, for several years, and spent a lot of time on FR. Did about 20,000 comments my first year, then I had to get another screen name. After a while I helped and then took over the Homosexual Agenda ping list.

Since then, I’ve either done the ping list myself, or mostly run it with other freepers. So I read tons of articles and threads on FR about this topic.

In the past, there would be a small handful of “gay” trolls who would generally, after a while, get banned.

Now there are many many “gay” rights supporters - some recent signups, some not. So yes, I think I have the overview to be able to say correctly that there are many more homosexual agenda supporters than several years ago.

I don’t really want to provide examples because that means posting a list of FR members and then I’d have to ping them all. But I have a list of about 40 who have been posting in favor of “gay” rights just since Prop 8 was overturned by the homosexual judge. Luckily since, over-overturned. There are more who have been banned, about 8 altogether just since then.

Actually Jelly there has been a rash of them just since Prop 8 ruling. There was another one zotted yesterday. I have lost count but have been on threads with about 1 zot a day. Some of them were not noobs.

If you can’t handle people on FR criticizing Coulter or having doubts about what she’s going to say to the GOProud militant homosexual group, or her apparently comfort with being their “pet”, maybe you should restrict yourself to posting on an Ann Coulter fanclub website, then. Because people are going to keep having grave doubts about her socially conservative views.

If she slams the GOProud’s agenda I will personally apologize to you and to her. If she doesn’t, then I and many others here’s doubts will have been proven spot on.

Why would Farah chose to criticize her and drop her from his event, when he has no idea what she’ll say in her speech? She’s not allowed to attend without drawing his condemnation? I’m not gettin’ it.

So, we're talking about a very tiny minority versus "tons." From your previous post I had the impression we had been overrun.

Not all of them have been zotted. Some back down when it’s made known that the Boss will ZOT them.

Liberty comes from God - Fatal Liberality comes from Useful Idiots who facilitate it. 

Evidently I'm not the only one you've left with the impression of the latter rather than the former.
 
I conclude you're a patronizing, disingenuous Ivory Tower blowhard who's more in love with the sound of his own voice than the Truth.
 
Quack, waddle -
"Cynical, ego-centric people who can look into your eyes with angelic expression and tell you a lie.  This are the most recruitable people; people who lack moral principals - who are either too greedy or too, uh, suffer from self-importance, uh, they feel that they matter a lot.  Uh, these are the people who KGB wanted very much to recruit...."
 
Don't forget to pack some wool socks.   No global warming in Siberia.  Brrrrrr.

That still doesn’t translate into “tons.” I don’t consider new signups whose only purpose is to argue for homosexual rights as authentic FReepers. I’d say the vast majority of FReeprs are opposed to the homosexual agenda.

I think “tons” describes the shock of a 2003 signup pushing the agenda. There are usually 3 on a thread. One gets the zot and the other 2 go silent. The next thread will have 3 different posters but same scenario. I don’t expect ANY on FR but they’re here.
