Give 'em hell, Ann!

Ann Coulter is in the news again stirring up more trouble :)

Apparently, she had the audacity to state fundamental Christian beliefs in an interview on CNBC's show "The Big Idea" with Donny Deutsch. When asked about what a perfect world would be like for her, she replied in part that everyone would be Christian. As so many in the media do, Deutsch seized upon the "intolerance" of such a view and pressed the issue, at one point implying that her wish for Jews to convert to Christianity was akin to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's desire to "wipe Israel off the face of the earth."

Coulter went on to explain that she didn't want Jews to be wiped out, but rather for them to be "perfected" in becoming Christian. She further elaborated by explaining the fundamental Christian doctrine that Christ came to do for us what we could not do for ourselves: perfectly keep the Law of God. Deutsch (who professes to be a practicing Jew) expressed offense at the notion that Jews are in any way in need of "perfection" at all, and subsequently accused Coulter of Anti-Semitism for her remarks.

Ann, remember the words of Christ: "Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you." - Matt 5:11-12 (ESV)

It is a fundamental belief of Christianity that all men need Christ for salvation. This of course presents a paradox for liberals who call for religious tolerance yet refuse to tolerate this religious beliefs. Continuing evidence that religious pluralism and "tolerance" are fundamentally at odds with Christianity. Christians can and should live peaceably with all men insomuch as they can, but when peace requires sacrifice or compromise of fundamental belief there can be no such peace...Christians must rise up to defend the faith once for all delivered to the saints.

God bless you, Ms. Coulter.
