Liberals Hate "Hot" Christians?

Anyone see the opinion piece written by Ann Coulter called, "Liberal Taliban Issues Fatwa Against Miss California?" It was mainly about the Miss California gay marriage issue, which I think she had every right to say - don't we have free speech!? I don't agree with her, but I think she's entitled to her opinion. However, that's not what I found most interesting in the article.

About eight paragraphs in the article, Ann says this,

"Christians aren't people who believe they are without sin; they're people who know they're sinners and are awestruck by God's grace in sending his only Son to take the punishment they deserve.

This is in contradistinction to liberals, all of whom believe they're on a fast track to heaven on the basis of being 'basically good' people -- and also believe that anyone who disagrees with that theological view is evil."

I don't like to pair a religion with a political view. Aren't there people who are Christian and liberal? Or, conservative and not Christian? So, I don't know how you can say that "liberals" as a whole have any particular views about heaven.

Is this what's she's trying to say, or did I miss something?

You can read the whole column at . Then, post a comment here and let me know what you think!

Peace and blessings,

If You Are a Dreamer Come In...

"If you are a dreamer come in.
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hoper, a pray-er, a magic-bean-buyer,
If youre a pretender come sit by my fire,
For we have some flax golden tales to spin.
Come in! Come in!"

- Shel Silverstein

Welcome to my home, journal, notebook, or simply place, here on the web! I'll be posting my thoughts, observations, favorite inspirational literature and poems that I've encountered on my journey through being a Christian where Christians don't fit and and a Unitarian Universalist (UU) where UUs don't fit in.

Come along for the ride!
