Ann Coulter is not Christian

“I think bombs are the answer.”

Ann Coulter, talking about Afghanistan at CPAC. (Hat tip Dave Weigel.)

I’m not sure what religion this lady subscribes to. She’s not Christian. Even Aquinas wouldn’t have said something as barbaric as “bombs are the answer”, let alone the Jesus of the Gospels. I think the above sentiment is actually supportable in certain traditions of Islam, though I’m no expert.

    Excuse me but our holy religion has room for non-doctrinal theologies. Even Augustine was considered an innovator in his time. Is it not written, before you look to the mote in your neighbor’s eye, check the fuse in thy own ordinance?

  2. collapse expand

    I agree. The comment sounds typical Muslim. Violence is their only answer in the name of some god.

    A religion based on violence, when you think about it, it does seem silly to say the least.

    About Me

    I've reported from Vietnam since 2003. I'm now the Hanoi correspondent for the German-based, English-language wire service Deutsche Presse-Agentur, and was previously a Hanoi-based stringer for the Boston Globe and for Voice of America. Before that I reported from West Africa, and before that from the Netherlands; my articles have appeared in the Washington Post, the Nation, the New York Times Magazine and the New York Times. I've got a thing for languages, and have picked up Russian, French, Dutch and Vietnamese. I used to write scripts for the children's cartoon shows "Arthur", "Doug", and a few others. I got a degree in interactive telecommunications back when most people had never sent an email. In April 1991 I predicted the USSR would collapse into its constituent republics and that Boris Yeltsin would become president of Russia. Since then most of my predictions have been rather less accurate, so it was probably a fluke.
