OK, so Anastacia Freeman might not be the greatest singer (and we’re saying this knowing that Nicki Minaj is sitting in the same room), but there’s no reason to ridicule her inspiration for trying out for “American Idol.” “I believe God told me to come up here an audition,” she told judge Randy Jackson. Minaj thought that was “weird,” but the comment was enough for the producers to shoot a “cheap dramatization” featuring a heavenly light, clouds of smoke and a choir of angels, prior to host Ryan Seacrest narrating her exit: a bitter end “as she heads home to await further instruction.”

A bit much, no? According to Twitter, it wasn’t enough.

We know that “American Idol” is all about being judged, but a few were a little more lenient than most.

    How does she know it was from God? There is another one who clearly wants her to make a fool of herself!

      Conversely, how do you know it wasn’t? Admittedly, I don’t follow the show. In fact, I find it insipid and boring. However, there is no reason to toss about invective or denigrate her faith. Why would you care enough to do so?

          Why do you feel the need, then, to be so harsh and use such hostile language to demean what you believe is a fancy of imagination? Why do you care what people believe? For the record, you might want to review the basic guidelines of capitalization and comma placement before calling your fellow man ignorant.

    There is one unforgivable sin: Mocking God. Eternity is a really really long long long time.

    • emaleroland

      Lori, have you ever seen a bible? Blasphemy against the spirit is the only unforgivable sin. I guess you’re the one mocking God.

      • Kathy Cook

        “Deny me before men and I will deny you before my Father…” is the unforgivable sin. Big difference between blasphemy and denial.

        • $36544368

          Does this help? The blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, which is the same as the ‘unpardonable sin’, is the state of continued unbelief. There is no pardon for a person who dies in unbelief. Continual rejection of the Holy Spirit’s promptings to trust in Jesus Christ is the unpardonable blasphemy against Him.

      She’s a crazy person if she honestly believes God told her to audition. Even if God is real why would He spends His time on something like that?

        Imaginary? Who you calling imaginary? God? The only thing I can say to that is you better hope that hell doesn’t exist, because if it does, as I believe it does, you are in for a world of suffering, unending, horribly painful suffering…If you actually sat down and did some reading, the Bible, and actually open yourself up, you will feel the power of God flow through you, you will feel His presence…give it a shot sometime…clear your mind and do it…if you do it right, your eyes will be opened and you’ll see the reality of things and leave behind the empty life that you live now…

      Christians and Muslims hate on other people all the time. No smart person respects someone that worships an unseen being from the sky. Your god has proven to be powerless. Your religions are nothing more than politics concealed under a veil of false spirituality.

      • texaswc

        Actually, a real, or true Christian doesn’t hate on anyone, they only speak their faith to whomever will listen, which is becoming quite few today since being a Christian seems to cramp so many lifestyles…like being moral is such a bad thing?? As for your “no smart person….from the sky” remark, you obviously haven’t seen what the power of God CAN do…well, you’ll have plenty of company in hell….

      • kilthan

        Oh to be an angry militant atheist. To be so myopic of vision that you cannot see you are guilty of the crimes you accuse others of. Projection and Transference are terrible coping mechanisms. You bow at the alter of random chance and worship a worldview built upon death and suffering on a universal scale, that ends in Heat Death, where everything has worn down to nothing. No light, no heat, no energy, just a universe like your heart, black and cold and lifeless.

        That, Erica, is what you profess and so angrily and insultingly preach: Death. The death of all life in a cosmic slot machine so your random assortment of atoms could preach your hatred of life. You preach your own death at the hands of that same cosmic lost machine, to feed the true god of Secular Humanism: Entropy. You extinguished your own light, and now seek to extinguish others, propelling the universe’s spiral towards the gaping maw of Entropy, that is Heat Death. In your world view, all is meaningless, all is hopeless, pointless, so you abase yourself before death and destruction, and hate life and creation. So, go on, continue to pour your life’s blood out on the alter of Entropy. Continue to worship death. But remember, at your end, when you are cold and alone with only death and the oblivion of your god Entropy all around you, you brought yourself there. You refused the hands offering you hope, salvation, life. You embraced it, and so shall it be yours, forever.

    The problem is, these people think Obama is God, and I’m fairly certain Obama did NOT tell her to audition. He’s way to busy saving the world to be concerned with celebri….oh, wait. Scratch that last part.

    If American Idol will make fun of the Lord in a round about way, I wonder if those of us who are christians should be watching this show. This country has gone so far left I fear for the children because it will be hard for them to know right from wrong. This country has been embracing sin and somebody needs to stand up and say it must stop. This was so un-acceptable
