Ann’s been “lost” for a while now, but her latest piece is in a class of its own.
We’re only linking to it because the public needs to be made aware that something this monstrous exists:
Instead of expressing hope that Ebola-stricken Dr. Kent Brantly recovers, she launches into a tirade about how American Christians who seek to do good work in other countries have screwed-up priorities. If she didn’t care for Brantly’s selflessness, she could’ve kept it to herself. Instead, she vomits up crap like this:
Which explains why American Christians go on “mission trips” to disease-ridden cesspools. They’re tired of fighting the culture war in the U.S., tired of being called homophobes, racists, sexists and bigots. So they slink off to Third World countries, away from American culture to do good works, forgetting that the first rule of life on a riverbank is that any good that one attempts downstream is quickly overtaken by what happens upstream.
But serving the needy in some deadbeat town in Texas wouldn’t have been “heroic.” We wouldn’t hear all the superlatives about Dr. Brantly’s “unusual drive to help the less fortunate” or his membership in the “Gold Humanism Honor Society.” Leaving his family behind in Texas to help the poor 6,000 miles away — that’s the ticket.
Today’s Christians are aces at sacrifice, amazing at serving others, but strangely timid for people who have been given eternal life. They need to buck up, serve their own country, and remind themselves every day of Christ’s words: “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.”
Maybe Coulter should spend less time telling goodhearted Christians how to serve God and humanity and focus instead on her own miserable existence.
Clearly Coulter is a bitter, vicious troll who thrives on attention — especially negative attention. But that doesn’t change the fact that she needs to be shamed.
There’s always room for an encore.
