Skip to comments.Evangelicals and the Coulter affair
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 don’t think
You got that much right.
Wow, you make it personal quick. Did I say something about your mother or something?
The more I read Joseph Farah (and about him), the more I keep saying Hes one helluva good man.That may be.
Just as many of us here still think that ANN is "one helluva a good woman."But if you're going be intellectually consistent, and blast ANN for having the temerity to "address an openly gay group..."
...then I look forward to your similarly blasting your "good man" FARAH, for doing virtually the SAME THING.From WND editor appears on gay-themed radio show to blast Ann Coulter for speaking to gay conservatives:
For a guy who says he plans to fight the homosexual agenda until the last breath and thinks God will collapse America for accepting gay marriage, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah sure has been doing a lot of gay media lately.Blast away! ;)
Farah appeared on two radio shows that are hosted by gay talk show personalities this week to blast Ann Coulter for headlining an upcoming party sponsored by GOProud, an organization that represents gay conservatives...

...Apparently, only Ann isnt allowed to speak to gay audiences...
...By the late 80s, Signorile became involved in gay politics and AIDS activism, running the media committee of the direct action group ACT UP in New York and helping to publicize protests and bring attention to the life-threatening issues surrounding AIDS. Soon thereafter, Signorile became a co-founding editor and columnist of the now-defunct OutWeek magazine a lively New York City lesbian and gay weekly writing often about how invisibility and the closet were hurting the gay movement and adversely affecting the AIDS epidemic. It was during that time when he found himself at the center of the often misunderstood and highly volatile issue that Time magazine unfortunately coined outing."You can just cut and paste from your previous posts about ANN "legitimizing" GOProud...
-- snip --
...Currently, Signorile hosts a radio show weekdays (2-6 p.m. ET) on Sirius Satellite Radio's OutQ [where he recently interviewed Joseph Farah].
...and re-post them here, about how FARAH is now similarly "legitimizing" OutQ. :o)
If you’ve been on FR since 2003 and don’t know what Log Cabin “Republican” RINOs are - then you’re an idiot.
If youve been on FR since 2003 and dont know what Log Cabin Republican RINOs are - then youre an idiot.
I ask you a polite question about a phrase I do not know, and you say I don't think. Then you post and say I am an idiot. Obviously, your nature "is too full o' th' milk of human kindness." Of course, any ignorance I may have can be remedied by simply reading a book, but nothing you can do will ever be able to help your personality. If you really want to help advance the conservative cause maybe you could start by not calling yourself one. With people like you supporting us we haven't a chance. I do hope you have a wonderful and blessed day, and many thanks for so clearly showing forth all those Christian virtues which you find, to your great displeasure, to be so lacking in others.
Signorile says, from your link:
"Yesterday on the show I interviewed World Net Daily's Joseph Farah about his battle with Ann Coulter over her speaking at the gay Republican group GoProud's "Homocon" event in September.
Farah eventually admitted that the left was right all along about Coulter and her lies ("My eyes have been opened") and had to acknowledge that his comrades on the right -- from Coulter and Laura Bush to Glenn Beck and Elizabeth Hassellbeck -- are now shifting on support for gays ( he said conservatives always "give up.") He also seemed a little bewildered about Prop 8 and its future when I suggested that the people might well vote for marriage soon as polls are shifting across the country. The right's mantra of course has been that the people were usurped by the judges, but now would they accept it if people voted for marriage? No, he said, but clearly realizing he was contradicting himself. At that point, he turned to Jesus. Listen in to some highlights from the interview."
Which I find hard to follow (what the heck does he mean about the left is right about Ann Coulter and her lies??) I'll give it another read in a bit. Meanwhile, here is another quote from the radical homosexual activist speaking his mind:
An excerpt from:
In Their Own Words: The Homosexual Agenda: "Homosexual activist Michelangelo Signorile, who writes periodically for The New York Times, summarizes the agenda in OUT magazine (Dec/Jan 1994):
"A middle ground might be to fight for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the institution of marriage completely, to demand the right to marry not as a way of adhering to society's moral codes, but rather to debunk a myth and radically alter an archaic institution... The most subversive action lesbian and gay men can undertake --and one that would perhaps benefit all of society--is to transform the notion of family entirely."
"Its the final tool with which to dismantle all sodomy statues, get education about homosexuality and AIDS into the public schools and in short to usher in a sea change in how society views and treats us."
You don’t know what the term “RINO” means? Seriously?
Regardless of WHAT Farah said on that "gay" radio program, the very fact that he agreed to be there severely undercuts his argument against ANN appearing at Homocon, IMHO.
He may be correct, that going on that radio show allows him access to a group of "gay" activists that might not otherwise hear his message [my words]......but that is PRECISELY why Ann agreed speak to the folks at Homocan.
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?
“...homosexuality is the cause that drives them...”
If that were true, they would be deomcrats.
Aw, heck...democrats...but you knew what I meant.
I just hate typos. lol
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: its always losing ground, Farah told Signorile. Thats why I dont consider myself a conservative.
Very interesting quote.
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.
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.
I’ll hold judgment until I hear (as the late Paul Harvey put it)”the rest of the story”.
If anyone can come up with the contents of Farah’s radio interviews, that would be helpful.
bIll hold judgment/b> [on JOSEPH FARAH] until I hear (as the late Paul Harvey put it)the rest of the story.But you won't extend the same courtesy to ANN.
Got it. :o)
