How can you NOT like Ann Coulter…

January 7, 2010

Flame away, but read this first.

Rant and rave, scream, bitch and moan, but when you realize it’s all true don’t yell at me.

Oh and all you Ann haters, just remember that when she stoops to Bill Maher’s level and debates, she does so with facts, while he does so, as do most of the folks that hate her, with humor, stupid stories or BS.

    Wow, just when you took a bit of a break from being a moron, you’re back with a vengeance.

    Ultimately, it’s about the arrogance and presumptuousness that Brit came across with. Not that he had an opinion about it, or specifically felt the infinite wisdom to share it on national TV.

    Other religions offer forgiveness and redemption, it’s you arrogant D-bags that think YOURS is the only “good” one……

    I think Tiger is smart enough to figure his religious beliefs out on his own,
    Brit Hume and Ann should just worry about themselves.
    (But that wouldn’t get ratings and line their pockets would it?)

    Dragging Christianity into the “you’re wrong!” “NO, YOU’RE WRONG!!!” shoutfest that is our political discourse does no favors for religion or Christianity. This writer doesn’t consider that there are liberal Christians, or Jewish conservatives, or Buddhist conservatives. No, all we get is, “Hume = conservative, therefore anyone who criticized him is a liberal and therefore merits rage.” Theological disputes aren’t well served by a partisan 800-word column debate format.

    Nor does the author relate any facts about Buddhism to get to the facts of the matter. Of _course_ we all think our religion is like totally teh awesomest evah. A Buddhist writer ignorant of Christianity could write an equal and opposite column.

    Here is another take on Hume’s comments:

    Curt, you want to have your politics, good for you. Free country.

    But Ann Coulter called on the United States to invade Arab nations and convert the citizens to Christianity against their will. She called John Edwards “a faggot” and said she wished Timothy McVeigh bombed into the New York Times. Then there was the time she said that Jews “needed to be perfected” and wished that women didn’t have the right to vote so no Democrats couldnot be elected. How would your wife feel about that, Curt?

    She is a hateful racist who says things just to get the simple-minded to see things her way.

    I guess it works.

    You have got to be kidding me. Ann Coulters’ books are fraught with errors. Bill Maher destroyed her in a debate with facts not humor. The more you post non baseball opinions the more I realize how clueless you really are. I really don’t understand why you choose to live in Massachusetts. You should move to a “red” state.

    How can I not like Ann Coulter – or more accurately in my case, how can I hate what she represents? It’s easy. People like her, who make a high living by playing the political mouthpiece and yet hold no allegiance nor duty to anything but themselves, are the worst part of our broken, disgusting ‘news’ media. She laces allusions to anti-liberal political rhetoric in a piece purporting to be a defense of Christianity. Such mixing of messages is blatant pandering and manipulation, and serves to do nothing else but muddy up religion by making politics an integrated part of it. I hate the ongoing attempts of the ‘conservative’ wing to make conservative politics an extension of religion. YOU, Curt, should hate it too. Mixing politics and religion is like inviting the devil into your church to help steer the way.

    “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s” is about more than taxes. Politics is, by its very nature, no thing of God’s. In fact, it is the chiefest representation of two of man’s greatest flaws – pride and avarice. You should be ashamed of the willingness of Ann Coulter and others in your party who are so willing to attempt to leash the word of God to the beast of their greed and pious pretense.

    Give it some thought, Curt.

    Curt
    Thanks for the link and the necessary debate. Great that your readers took your advice and read it, but too bad that they don’t seem to understand. All the classic free speech construct from liberals – they are free to say whatever they want, conservatives like Coulter are free only to shut-up. Even where faith is concerned, the response is equivocation. Possibly for ‘liberal christians’ there are 8 1/2 Commandments and a Silver rule. Liberals, by their actions, love Government over all else. Finally, the reference to the color-of-state is ironic – isn’t Mass already considered ‘Red?’ The dissolution of religion and faith there is the first tip-off – next thing will be huge posters of Chairman Obama in a black jacket …
    Keep up the fight

    Everyone’s entitled to an opinion. Mine is that not only is Coulter an idiot, so is Brit Hume. I’m not a “liberal” or “Anti-Christian” but I strongly feel that everyone should be able to choose their own religion, and I’m sure Tiger or anyone else should be able to work through their problems in their own way, without having to ‘switch’ to Christianity.

    Curt,

    Why does everyone have to think like you? Is it possible that being something other than Christian, conservative and completely ignorant to other’s perspectives is fulfilling for others. I’d address your own stupidity before I questioned others. Get an education. You embarrass yourself every time you post. Congratulations for making yourself the 25th most likable person on the 2004 team. Keep slinging a baseball around like and telling others how to live. Fool.

    Curt,

    Ya know, I’ve had this blog on my feed reader for a while now. Even though I’ve never agreed with anything non-baseball you’ve ever talked about, I have respected your baseball career and I have enjoyed the occasional post here on the topic. Also I sometimes like to hear from the other side of the political debate. Just so I know what y’all are thinking.

    But I’m deleting it off my feed reader now. You, Brit Hume and Ann Coulter seem to be saying that your religion is better than anyone else’s religion and it’s not just liberals that have a problem with that. Ann Coulter is the least “Christian” person I can think of. Maybe she thinks all of her hatred and demagoguery can easily be forgiven because of her “faith”. I’m betting on otherwise.

    So take care. I’m outta here.

    Curt, this is a woman who said she would vote for Hilary Clinton over John McCain. And your a fan???

    Brit Hume is supposed to be an anchor on a major network and at the very least should try and act like one. I miss when anchors would report on the news instead of trying to make themselves part of the news. Tiger Woods is a bad husband. Grabbing a bible is not going to change that.

    As for Bill Maher, he is Ann’s polar opposite. They use the same tactics. If you disagree with them, you are automatically stupid. Their tactics are somewhat different, as Maher likes to be smug, while Ann prefers to yell a little more, but they both like to act like they are the smartest person in the room, when in most cases they are clearly not. They are both phonies to a certain extent also.

    Bill claims to be a liberterian or at least he used to, but the only thing liberterian about him is his desire to legalize pot. Other than that he wants the government to run everything and is very extreme on a lot of positions, including the desire to have nobody eat hamburgers any more. The cows fart too much. The sad part is that he really argues this. I am not making this up. He is somewhat more civil to the opposing side, when they agree to appear on his show as he usually has to defend that person half the show because his liberal nutball guests will attack them, who make Maher look tame in comparison.

    Coulter claims to be a conservative, but seems to only want to put down liberals, which in her mind makes her conservative. I do not remember hearing her talk about limited government and personal liberty, which are the two bedrocks of conservatism in the Buckley mode. If she talked about these things, she probably would have more likeability as these are the things that most Americans with conservative values care most about. Of course that probably would not sell enough books and be not controversial enough for the spotlight seeking Coulter.

    Please stop with the Coulter talk. Why don’t you ask John McCain what he thinks of her. I don’t it would be very positive.

    I am a Libertarian and I am a Christian. However I thank The Lord that our forefathers had the vision to insist on separation of church and state. More atrocities have been committed in the name of religion than anything in the history of the planet.

    For Hume to bloviate on Christianity is completely irresponsible and egocentric. For Coulter to defend it shows the limits of her intellect and the fact that after all is said and done she is nothing but an attention seeking big mouth.

    Even the title of her article is offensive and completely bogus. “If You Can Find a Better Deal, Take It!”. Christianity is a mere “deal”? Deciding to be a Christian is like getting a great “deal” on a new car? What an insulting premise.

    Have Christians like John Ensign, Mark Sanford, Rudy Guiliani, David Vitter, Newt Gingrich, John McCain taken the “better deal” to repent from being unfaithful to their wives? Wouldn’t the “better deal” been if they had relied on their Christian faith to help them remain faithful.

    Curt, I doubt you will put this commentary on your blog seeing that I accurately termed your buddy John McCain an adulterer. It has been well documented that John McCain started dating Cindy Hensley while he was still married. In fact, McCain secured their marriage license BEFORE his divorce was final.

    “Although McCain suggested in his autobiography that months passed between his divorce and remarriage, the divorce was granted April 2, 1980, and he wed Hensley in a private ceremony five weeks later. McCain obtained an Arizona marriage license on March 6, 1980, while still legally married to his first wife.”

    Afraid to post the truth, Curt?

    Oh, dear – where does one begin? Breathe slowly . . . .
    First of all, Ann Coulter is an entertainer. Limbaugh, O’Reilly, Hannity, Beck, Ingraham, et al, are entertainers, Curt. They make lots and lots of money – you know, like BASEBALL money – being sufficiently provocative that it gets the juices flowing of those who sympathize with their view of the world, which causes people to spend money to buy their books and listen to their radio and TV programs, which encourages them to be even more provocative, etc., etc. If you want to talk about what David Brooks or Ross Douthat or Andrew Sullivan or even Christopher Buckley has to say about the state of conservatism in America today, then we might something a little more substantive to talk about. But if a foul-mouthed demagogue like Ann Coulter is your frame of reference – sorry, we’re just not going to get very far.
    More to the “Brit Hume” point of all this . . .
    It’s a free country, and I’m pretty much of an absolutist on the First Amendment. If Mr. Hume wants to proselytize, and Fox News wants to let him, so be it. It’s not going to keep me awake at night, and I have long since stopped being “offended” by anything these talking heads say on television. He’s a news reader for heavens’ sake! On Fox News!!! The more salient point is the creeping religiosity of our public discourse these days, and frankly, it’s been coming from the right a whole lot more than the left. This very shaky merging of religion and the public sphere – and by that I mean politics, culture, journalism, education, and other aspects of our “public” life – runs the very great risk of cheapening both. When a national newscaster tells his national audience that a famous athlete (or celebrity or politician or whomever) needs to turn to Jesus to get his life turned around, those of us who consider ourselves Christian (like me, for example) just absolutely cringe at the crass tawdriness of it. We want to just scream at the guy, “Please just shut up with the fawning piety all the time. Stop giving us Christians a bad name!!!”

    And then even the libertarians are confusing Brit Hume with the government. Lets get this straight – The Constituion protects religion -it doesn’t protect the State. All you statists apparantly think its the other way ’round, so now you invoke a fictional Church from State idea to say the Brit Hume can’t comment on a religious / faithful comparative. Heaven forbid a Christian should speak about Christianity.

Then we’ll get into a discussion about facts and not about a super-human who was born of a virgin, nailed to a cross, died, magically came back to life, magically resurrected a friend, climbed a mountain after being dead for 3 days and then ascended into a magical post-life.

    Wow, sounds like Curt hit a nerve and because I’ve accepted Christ into my life (this means I truly know what forgiveness is), I understand that this crowd no doubt, needs to be exposed to this truth. Bash how you must (everyone has Internet muscles). For the record…we’ll all die, believing in a Faith. Faith in, logic, scientific method, hearsay, Christianity, Buddhist, etc, etc. As a Christian, I’m confident I’m right (read: I have faith that I’m right)…you can see it as arrogance, but you sound just as arrogant by making a stand against it…in fact, you sound a little dumb. “I believe Christians are pompous for thinking they are right…but I’m not going to say what’s right because I don’t have a clue”…see how dumb that sounds. For those that think they do have a clue, that’s your faith…but we must agree that everyone has faith in something.

    Bottom line: Like Ann said, if you can offer a better deal, I’ll take it! Seriously, if you’re right with your faith and I’m wrong, then what do I lose…NOTHING. If I’m right with my faith and you’re wrong, then what do you lose…EVERYTHING (read: eternal life in heaven). And all I need to do is live life as a good person and believe that Jesus Christ was the son of God, died for my sins and accept him into my life as lord and savior? That’s it? It’s a no brainer really (and for all you theologians out there, that doesn’t mean you have to be dumb to be a Christian)…some people are actually so smart…nevermind, it goes right over their heads.

    Nobody cares that Brit Hume thinks Tiger should turn to Jesus for salvation. If he wants to rant and rave about it on Fox News then go right ahead. Nobody really cares other than to make fun of him.
    What I find interesting is that Brit seems to be implying that Tiger turn to Christianity not so much to love God and know His truth, but rather because Christianity will offer the salvation that Buddhism doesn’t. It’s akin to marrying a woman just because you want to bed her down.

    Now if she only knew what she was talking about (Buddhism is NOT atheistic like she implies) I would have to say Buddhism has to be the most rational of religions.

    There is ZERO proof for the existence of God…from scientific rational perspective, it all as credible as a fairly tale. Christianity is responsible for the worst atrocities in human history. They have had their Crusades and Inquisitions, even going as far as threatening to execute Galileo if he refused to recant the heretical idea that the earth orbited the sun.

    So yes, if the Buddhist claim there is no God, they are more “rational” than Christians.

    “How can you not like Ann Coulter?”

    I suppose you’ve been lucky never to be on the receiving end of Ann’s hate. I just hope that your children and other children that look up to you aren’t learning her level of hate through this blog. Calling homosexuals “f%gs” with no sense of impropriety. This is ok to you? This is someone you go out of your way to spread the message of? This is someone you want to associate yourself with? Would you be so quick to spread her message if she were using derogatory slurs toward African Americans? Or is it just ok because it’s the gays she attacks?

    Unlike Ann who was quoted as saying “Frankly, I’m not a big fan of the First Amendment.”, I think it’s fine that you share these views.It’s your site and who am I to tell you what to write. I’m not sure what relevance it is to a sports site, but that’s more of WEEI.com’s decision. All I can do is remove this blog, and all links to WEEI.com from my RSS feed, and wish you and yours well.

    “Christianity is also the hardest religion in the world because, if you believe Christ died for your sins and rose from the dead, you have no choice but to give your life entirely over to Him. No more sexual promiscuity, no lying, no cheating, no stealing, no killing inconvenient old people or unborn babies — no doing what all the other kids do.”

    Quoting (above) from Coulter’s own words:

    She is sexually promiscuous, by her own admission

    She lies frequently (only a total moron could deny this), example: Limbaugh and Delay were not the victims of liberal conspiracies as Coulter stated in one of her hate laced columns, they broke the law, and the NY Times did report Dale Earnhardt’s death despite what her book said

    And, when it’s been proven beyond any shadow of a doubt she did tell a lie she cheats by changing her books after the fact with no public retraction, i.e. NY Times did report on Dale Earnhardt’s death, I call that cheating

    Don’t know about stealing, killing inconvenient old people and unborn children, but even if she came out and denied these actions why should we believe her.

    Curt, you are a decent baseball player but a total moron. Ann is a typical conservative who doesn’t practice what she preaches.

    I have always disliked Ann Coulter(and based on this piece,Brit Hume as well),but I have always respected your opinion,valued your opinion,and that will remain so,with this one exception. I cannot believe that you would even stoop to their level by posting this. Please do not tell me that you did it because it is a “conservative” thing because my cousin,who is the executive director of the Republican Study Committee in Washington,D.C,and is the most conservative person I know(he did not like President Bush because he was not conservative enough)totally dislikes Ann Coulter. We have many “friendly” debates,as I am a Democrat,and disagree on many issues,but when it comes to Ann Coulter,we agree. What bothers me most about this posting is that you are agreeing with them that the Christian religion is the “only way” to go,that it will be the saving grace. Well,I am Jewish-not conservative but a believer of the faith-and I think that my religion,just as any other religion that someone believes in,would help someone through a crisis. Not of the nature of what Tiger Woods is dealing with,not at all,but my religion has helped my family and me through some very difficult times involving physical illness. I am not anti-Christian,as I have many friends of all different faiths,but the one thing that all of my friends have in common with me is that we respect each other’s right to believe in our own religion. You and Ann Coulter unfortunately do not have that same respect. I expected it of her but quite frankly,you have upset me very much because I never thought it of you. So while I enjoy reading your posts and will continue to value your opinion,this one was just too narrow minded for me. And as for my conservative cousin,normally he would agree with everything that you say,as the two of you are politically of one mind(and perhaps should hook up at some time to talk)but if he were to read what you posted,this posting,he would verbally shred you to pieces. On behalf of those of us who are of the Jewish faith,and on behalf of those who are any other religion,may I say that your posting truly made me physically ILL. Very interesting that you knew the reaction you would get when you posted it but chose to post it anyway. Your comments in response would be most welcome,as always….

    I’m Offended by this!!!!-I’m offended by that!!!!!…..Thin skinned people remind me of 3 year olds. More and more this country is a nation of 3 year olds.

    When you live in a country where you have to do a double take on every thing you say that may offend some thin skinned group of wackos, you should start worrying. Gotta take into account the thought police on everything anymore. One more bonus attribute to our lovely society from political correctness. Borat for President 2012.

    “Bottom line: Like Ann said, if you can offer a better deal, I’ll take it! Seriously, if you’re right with your faith and I’m wrong, then what do I lose…NOTHING. If I’m right with my faith and you’re wrong, then what do you lose…EVERYTHING (read: eternal life in heaven).”

    “Suppose we grant that there is indeed some small chance that God exists. Nevertheless, it could be said that you will lead a better, fuller life if you bet on his not existing, than if you bet on his existing and therefore squander your precious time on worshipping him, sacrificing to him, fighting and dying for him, etc.”-Richard Dawkins

    Anyhow, this all boils down to different kinds of truth claims. Christians and other “believers” make truth claims that are based on things that cannot be demonstrated, proven, or supported by anything that amounts to evidence in any non-religious context. In fact, the less evidence there is, the more they believe it to be true! This is basically the definition of insanity, but because the majority of people in the world think this way, it’s considered normal… and all atheists are rude and “mean” for pointing out the hollowness of such truth claims. Meanwhile, Curt Schilling can be buried in direct quotes taken from Ann Coulter’s appearances and writings, all of which are vile and hateful by the most objective standards, yet he keeps posting things like ‘Just read this and tell me what’s wrong with her!’ Head. In. The. Sand. It’s a failure to comprehend actual evidence while insisting that fairy tales are the realest kind of real. Thus, Saddam Hussein had something to do with 9/11, torture works (but we don’t torture… at least not officially!), Sarah Palin isn’t a blithering moron, the economy tanked on Obama’s inauguration day, and no terrorist attacks took place during Bush’s presidency (RUDY FRICKIN’ GIULIANI said this just the other day). Meanwhile, Tiger Woods’ failed marriage is all due to Woods not being a Christian, whereas Brit Hume’s adultery and failed marriage is, um, well, never mind, look over there! Shiny Sarah Palin on the TV!

    Brit Hume should have been fired. Switch the religions and tell people they should ditch christianity and you’ll see some different reactions from people like yourself.

    Ann Coulter is a wacko who’s publicly bashed 9/11 widows, has called Jewish people imperfect while touring with Bill Maher to sell books. She’s not an idiot, she knows how to make money, She has you sold, Curt.

    Curt,
    Real men will agree with you.
    Ann, all 6 feet of her, is a remarkably incisive woman who, like Sara Palin, says it like it is and generates the responses she expects from her effete detractors. She baits and they bite… notice how many of the males responding show their fear of strong women.
    Great Blog, by the way.

    I can’t believe all the negativity about this. Hume, Coulter, and Schilling are pointing out some positive facts about Christianity. They are not saying other religions are bad. I am half Christian and half Jewish and am always willing to listen to the positive aspects of any religion. Why don’t more people start offering up some of the things they like about a particular religion rather than bashing someone who believes in something.

    That is why I can’t stand Christianity. If a child molester believes that God sent his only son to die for our sins, he is in. If one of the children he molested lives a moral life, but does not believe in God (because of what He let happen to him)then he is out. Makes no sense.

    “With Christianity, your sins are forgiven, the slate is wiped clean and your eternal life is guaranteed through nothing you did yourself, even though you don’t deserve it. It’s the best deal in the universe.”

    That’s a quote from the end of Ann’s column-does that mean that all the mean-spirited things she has said over the years about all people are not to be believed and if they are it doesn’t matter because she will be forgiven? So hurting people must be a Christian value Ann?

    Try forgiving people who don’t agree with you yourself Ann-that is if you hold the principles of Christianity in such high esteem.

    Curt you never fail to amaze me with your illogical thoughts.

    Ann knows less about the history of the development of Christianities than she does about science.

    Nevertheless, she does not believe in science.

    Hard to take her seriously after that.

    Curt–

    You and Ann should be so grateful you live in a country where you can spout your idiotic blatherings and yet make millions. Ann Coulter couldn’t recognize a fact if it hit her in her Adam’s apple.

    Wow. Just…. wow. Curt I enjoyed your outspoken ways as Red Sox pitcher and CHB nemesis, but you are off the deep edge.

    By the way your video game fantasy has zero percent chance of going anywhere, if it’s not obvious to you at this point. Hope you stashed some cash somewhere.

    I am a Libertarian (socially liberal, fiscally ultra-conservative) and agree with what most have stated in the comments. Ann Coulter is a nut who willingly mixes politics with religion (like most of today’s right-wing ilk). The founders deliberately and intelligently separated church and state. It should remain that way.

    Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck (et. al.) are far worse (and less fact driven…factcheck.org is nearly always right, heritage.org…not so much) than their counterparts on the left. In my view, they are merely fanning the growing flames of the stupid and ill-informed…lining their pockets all the while.

    Besides, which Republican party do you support Curt? The big government, big religion “machine” of the last 10+ years?? Did you happen to notice that the federal government grew by unprecedented amounts under Bush/Cheney? Can you honestly state that you were in favor of that or the ridiculous heights of unethical (if not illegal) behavior the Bush administration took with their signing statements? I do not have a short memory and cannot easily forget or forgive the Bush/Cheney rights trouncing, big government years. I will vote against Republicans until they prove to me they stand for something else. I’ve yet to see it….

    What positive facts are there about a religion when you violate the Ten Commandments. “Thou Shall Not Kill” nailing Jesus to a cross for your own repentance which is basically bearing false witness against your neighbor or Jesus because you have in fact said that he is responsible for your sins and that its his responsibility to be punished for them when he is not the one who made you sin to begin with.
