Gretchen and Michelle,
Thank you for your revealing story on “Fox & Friends” on December 18th.
I am an atheist, and I have to say, your pinchy-faced disapproval of me is not only ineffective, it’s hilarious too! Your narrow-mindedness prevents you from seeing how stupid you appear, so I will attempt to explain it to you.
Gretchen: “Oh yeah, you’re an atheist but let’s use one of the Ten Commandments to prove your point.”
Well Gretchen, perhaps one of our points is that Christians are hypocritical. So, you see, for a Christian who presumably stole the atheist sign would be breaking one of the Ten Commandments and would therefore be hypocritical. Do you understand now? I bet you thought you were being clever when you delivered that line, but you might as well have been saying “I don’t know what I’m doing. I should have satisfied myself with being a fading beauty queen, and I’m not qualified to be a journalist—not even for FOX.”
And poor Michelle Malkin is getting “Christmas Wars fatigue,” but proceeds to call atheists “Trolls” and recommends that we be “mocked.” If you don’t want war, you shouldn’t use fighting words.
Michelle: “This is identity politics run amuck. Now atheists need their 15 minutes of fame?”
So the issue wasn’t that the atheist sign was stolen, now the issue is that we were allowed to put up a sign at all. Michelle, when identity politics ran amuck was when Christians were allowed to display their religious iconography in a Government building. That, Michelle, is why the atheists did what they did. Your cerebellum is crammed so tightly into that narrow cranium of yours that you failed to grasp this. Now you present atheists in your cutesy report as attention-seekers who are just there to spoil everyone’s fun … but you’re so tired of all the “Christmas War.” It’s on, Michelle!
Michelle: “Some of my best friends are atheists.”
Well Michelle, they might be YOUR best friends, but I bet YOU are not THEIR best friend. Why would you be? You believe that they are making fools of themselves by pointing out that you believe in fairy tales. You believe they are “trolls” who should be mocked. You, however, are in a position of power, so these atheist “best friends” of yours probably smile and nod, granting you passive tolerance while secretly mocking you under their breath.
Then Gretchen hit the nail on the head. She said, “If you let them do that, then over time they will have the control. If you don’t stand up and fight for it—it might just disappear! (I’m talking about Christianity.)” That really is what you fear, isn’t it Gretchen? While you should be fearing your own poor sentence construction, you instead fear that your fables will disappear! But you needn’t fear this. Since when did reason and virtue win out over fear and superstition? Never. You represent an entire news network with more power than Jesus himself ever had, and yet you seem deathly afraid of a few “trolls” with what you think are wacky and vain ideas. Shakespeare said it best, “methinks the lady doth protest too much.” Your panic betrays your insecurity. Even the most passionate defense will not make your fables true, Gretch.
According to Michelle we are trying to undermine civility and peace, while the Christian flag-bearers are trampling over the rights of homosexuals. Mmmmkay.
I’m hope both of you are getting your fair share of negative feedback for that story. But that horse won’t be dead for awhile. Consider this my whack.
