Quote of the Day

Ann Coulter:

According to liberals, the message of Jesus, which somehow Gibson missed, is something along the lines of "be nice to people" (which to them means "raise taxes on the productive").

You don't need a religion like Christianity, which is a rather large and complex endeavor, in order to flag that message. All you need is a moron driving around in a Volvo with a bumper sticker that says "be nice to people." Being nice to people is, in fact, one of the incidental tenets of Christianity (as opposed to other religions whose tenets are more along the lines of "kill everyone who doesn't smell bad and doesn't answer to the name Mohammed"). But to call it the "message" of Jesus requires ... well, the brain of Maureen Dowd.

In fact, Jesus' distinctive message was: People are sinful and need to be redeemed, and this is your lucky day because I'm here to redeem you even though you don't deserve it, and I have to get the crap kicked out of me to do it. That is the reason He is called "Christ the Redeemer" rather than "Christ the Moron Driving Around in a Volvo With a 'Be Nice to People' Bumper Sticker on It."

Thank you, Mr. Emerson, for responding to my previous comment post here. I understand about being behind... I still have correspondence from way, way back that I have yet to respond to, and I currently have an overdue essay for class as well.

I just followed the link to that Coulter column at Front Page Magazine, and I see that their site is re-designed. I remember awhile ago, when the site was previously re-designed. I am not one who likes change... And that includes website designs. I think I liked the previous design for that site (the one before the current one) better.

Ann Coulter is my hero. Besides being smoking hot, she's dead on.
