I wrote last June against Ann Coulter’s sharp tongue when she said concerning some 9-11 widows, “I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much” (“Ann Coulter Needs To Repent” [part 1]).
After she called John Edwards a “faggot” last weekend, I thought I would write again today to say that it is important for Christians to disassociate themselves from vile rhetoric such as hers. I cannot, however, say it any better that Dr. Albert Mohler has done, so I refer you to his blog post, “Recovering Civility . . . and Refusing to Deny the Obvious.” Mohler writes:
Ann Coulter has turned herself into the evil queen of mean. She has lowered herself to embarrassing theatrics and crude humor. More seriously, she clearly does not mean all insults as a joke. . .
Conservative institutions cannot afford any association with this kind of language or attack. The issues are far too serious to be treated in this manner, and the very convictions Ann Coulter often defends are now sullied by association with her. . .
How can homosexuals think anything but the worst of a movement that would laugh at the use of this slur? How can we think any better of ourselves if we stand by and let it happen?
Amen to that.
