Christians on both the left and right denounce right-wing harpy Ann Coulter and her hate speech that masquerades as "political commentary."
Last week, Coulter grabbed more headlines after revising her previous "faggot" remarks directed at Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards. "Bill Maher was not joking and saying he wished Dick Cheney had been killed in a terrorist attack. I'm gonna say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot." A few days later, Elizabeth Edwards challenged the author of Godless to a public debate. Coulter declined.
Christian blogger David Kuo—who once directed the Bush Administration's faith-based initiatives—says "conservative Christian activists need to publicly distance themselves from her for the sake of the Gospel. What most Christians do is to love God and their family and their neighbors. But so long as the conservative Christian activists are in bed (metaphorically speaking) with Ms. Coulter it sends a very different message."
Darrell Bock—editor-at-large of Christianity Today—was just as blunt: "The godless author needs to clean up her act. Making fun of the tragic death of a child, teasing about sexual orientation, or joking about wanting to see a terrorist at work against someone is wrong, whether it comes from the left or the right."
Dr. Bock is a professor of theology and one of the world's leading New Testament scholars. If you wanted to ask anyone "WWJD?", this would be the man.
