Ann Coulter recently commended mainstream Christian merchants for the courage of their convictions while attacking “most Christian leaders and certainly the Republican Party” for their cowardice.
Is Coulter a courageous Christian? By her very own standards – No!
But is Coulter courageous? Again, not by her standards.
Coulter insists, “the one thing every Christian should have is courage.”
She has correctly identified the problem: “It’s Christianity that the left hates most of all. Because that is the foundation of our country, and everything – all of our freedoms come from that, freedom of association, freedom of speech, this direct attack on the Christians.”
But even as she commends Christian merchants for opposing the gay agenda and standing courageously for what they believe in, Coulter offers an Obama-like defense of those persecuting Christians.
She said, “This is the most consequential nation on earth. And the fact that these Christians would rather get praise from the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof by changing bed pans of Ebola patients in Nigeria rather than stand up to the New York Times and fight against abortion and fight against these bullies, and I don’t think it’s gay bullies, I think it’s – as you call them secular progressives or liberals.” [Emphasis added.]
No, Ann, it is “gay bullies.” For over three decades, gay bullies have foisted the gay agenda into dominance in the public schools, academia, Hollywood and television entertainment, and other cultural institutions in America, including some churches!
Why does Coulter, with bold, broad-brush strokes, vilify all liberals as godless, America-hating, terrorist-loving traitors, denigrate all Muslims as terrorists or terrorist wannabes, and disparage all illegal immigrants as dangerous criminals, yet – in the face of all the evidence – offer an Obama-like “nuanced” interpretation of the nature of those who are promoting the gay agenda?
It is, indeed, “gay bullies” who are bullying into submission all those who oppose the gay agenda, and Ann Coulter has – for years – sided with those bullies.
Why, when America was at a tipping point, did Coulter choose the wrong side? Why is she now attempting to straddle the fence?
Ann Coulter – Gay Icon
In 2010, Coulter became the spokesperson for GOProud, a Republican organization promoting the gay agenda. She was acclaimed a “Gay Icon” and became “the honorary chair for the advisory council of GOProud.” According to GOProud, “Ann helped put our organization on the map.”
As for Coulter, she preened, “I am honored to serve in this capacity on GOProud’s Advisory Council, and look forward to being the Queen of Fabulous.”
At the very same time, actually courageous Christians at World Net Daily stood up for biblical truth and disinvited Coulter from their Take Back America Conference. Coulter reviled those courageous Christians (not dissimilar from the Christian merchants she praised in 2015), calling them “fake Christians” seeking “publicity.”
Matt Barber, Liberty Counsel Action, agrees with World Net Daily: “There is nothing conservative about the radical homosexual activist agenda which seeks to impose, under penalty of law, sexual anarchy.”
Coulter also appeared on LOGO’s gay TV show, The A-List Dallas. Once again, Coulter’s message was pro-life, while ignoring homosexuality itself!
True courage (and compassion) would speak biblical truth, would preach the gospel of repentance, forgiveness, healing, and transformation. True courage (and compassion) would proclaim Jesus’ gospel of salvation so that they might he saved in this life and the next. Enabling sinners to remain in sin is neither courageous nor compassionate.
When will Coulter repudiate her past promotion of GOProud and unequivocally oppose the gay agenda?
When will Coulter repent of her attacks upon those Christians who are, in fact, doing God’s work, whether those biblically-informed activists involved with the Take Back America Conference, or those heroic missionaries serving the least of the least overseas?
When will Coulter exhibit the courage she exhorts other Christians to exhibit?

 Notice, Coulter addressed the culture war against abortion but not against the gay agenda, which is the actual issue involving those persecuted Christians she lauded.
