Coulter’s Apocalypse

The apocalypse is nigh and Ann Coulter insists that only Donald Trump can defeat the Four Horsemen.

coulters-apocalypse

On The Drive Home (9/29/16), Coulter berated a Christian Never Trumper, saying, “So do not pretend to be a Christian when you are rooting for the destruction of the last Christian country on earth.”

Coulter’s rationale for haranguing this “nobody,” as she called him, is the same as it has been in recent years. In her mind, America is “the last Christian country on earth” and this election will decide the fate of America and the entire world.

Trump is not only her Savior, he is the savior of America and civilization itself.

Therefore, a Christian must support Trump – a non-Christian, bullying, libertine liberal liar masquerading as a conservative – in order to save mankind.

If you believe that God in heaven, Christian virtues and principles, Constitutional government and the rule of law, and liberty in the land of the free take precedence over a Trump victory in November, then you are pretending to be a Christian.

Moreover – or, perhaps, most importantly – Coulter has cast herself in the dramatic role of saving America with Trump. Because of her self-less self-sacrifice – “I feel like an insect that gives birth and then dies” – mankind will be saved. But only with a Trump victory.

Just the other day, Coulter contended that #NeverTrump is virtually synonymous with atheism.

Why Coulter’s sudden interest in Christians being Christians?

Not because of any concern for fealty to Christ. Rather, she is bullying believers into betraying their true Savior. Remember, she has repeatedly attacked Christians for being godly and pro-lifers for being pro-life.

#NeverTrump = Atheists?

Ann Coulter asserts a nebulous connection between the Never Trump movement and atheism.

nevertrump-atheist

Huh?

A large percentage of #NeverTrump members belong to that movement precisely because of their faith.

On the Eric Metaxas Show (10/3/16), Coulter argued that George Will and Charles Murray are opposed to Trump because “they are both atheists.”

Coulter then argued:

“I guess status matters. As I always say, the reason status doesn’t matter to Christians is we’re looking up. If you have nothing to look up to, if you’re not getting your standard from God, then you have to look around. It’s either lateral or horizontal or vertical. You’re looking around and it matters to you – the opinion of other people.”

This is a rather strange argument for Coulter to make, especially given Coulter’s repeated boasts of worshiping Trump as her Savior and her condemnations of Christian leaders who oppose Trump.

A substantial number of evangelicals oppose Trump because they discern the huckster beneath the veneer. They recognize a libertine liberal bully masquerading as a champion for the people and a savior of the nation.

I suspect there are far more atheists in the #OnlyTrump camp than the #NeverTrump one.

Is Ann Coulter a Courageous Christian?

Ann Coulter recently commended mainstream Christian merchants for the courage of their convictions while attacking “most Christian leaders and certainly the Republican Party[1] for their cowardice.[2]

Is Coulter a courageous Christian? By her very own standards – No!

Homocon

Coulter also vilified Christian missionaries[3] for their alleged cowardice, treason, and vanity, despite their obvious courage (and compassion) in serving in dangerous and inhospitable locations.[4]

But is Coulter courageous? Again, not by her standards.

Coulter insists, “the one thing every Christian should have is courage.”[5]

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.”

Gay Bullies

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.”[6] [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.”

GOPSkeletor

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!

Ann+Coulter+at+GOProud.org

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?

Fake Christians (in Coulter’s eyes)

Ann Coulter, who claims to be “an extraordinarily good Christian,”[1] rails again persecution of Christians yet attacks faithful Christians for their faith – because of political differences!

For almost two decades, Coulter has denied the very existence of liberal Christians.[2] Coulter has also attacked Christian conservatives – calling them “fake Christians” – as well as Catholics and Christian missionaries![3]

FakeChristians

Fake Christians – Missionaries!

Last year, Coulter repeatedly defamed Christian missionaries,[4] calling them cowards,[5] traitors,[6] and glory-seekers.[7] She has not changed her views.

A few weeks ago, Coulter lauded “These small-town owners of [Memories Pizza] have more Christian courage than most Christian leaders and certainly the Republican Party”[8] and she exhorted Christians to have “courage [and] … Go out and fight.”

But in the midst of her exhortation, Coulter again attacked Christian missionaries, saying, “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.”

As one person tweeted, “If you let @AnnCoulter define God’s mission, you’re doing it wrong: http://bit.ly/V4pU77 #JumpingTheMissionShark,”

Indeed, Coulter misses the essence of the gospel, which infuses selfless love for the lost into global outreach in fulfillment of the Great Commission. Notice that Jesus’ commission – for worldwide, not national, evangelism – is recognized as “great.”

In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus instructed all of his disciples to “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

The apostle Paul spoke of this in Romans 10:15, “And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!’”

But Coulter despises those whom God has sent!

Fake Christians – Liberals!

To reiterate, Coulter hates liberal Christians, even denying that they could be people of faith and children of God. During the 2012 election cycle, Coulter opined, “all liberals are atheists. Only the ones who have to stand for election even bother pretending to believe in God … There’s only one true Christian liberal in the country and that’s Mike Huckabee.”

As she later explained to Huckabee:

“So I started thinking, what if you were a genuine Christian but you had some crazy liberal views on things that are not directly Christian, what would that look like? And I thought of you, Governor.”

(Is Huckabee really a liberal? Coulter knows he is not.)

Fake Christians – Conservatives!

Coulter has also attacked self-evidently conservative Christians who support traditional marriage and other biblical precepts. In 2010, Coulter vilified one conservative Christian organization for cancelling her speech, claiming, “These are fake Christians trying to get publicity.” She also castigated the organizer, Josef Farah, calling him a “publicity whore” and a “swine” who could “give less than two s—- about the conservative movement.”

Farah responded in a Christ-like manner: “Coulter called me a ‘publicity whore’ for my decision. But look who is on television talking about this – throwing mud, name-calling, smearing not only me but my entire staff. I will not engage in the kind of ad hominem attacks that have made Coulter so famous and that are making her even more of a media darling in this age of reckless anger and character assassination for the sake of entertainment.”

Fake Christians – Catholics!

Demonstrating her commitment to inclusivity, Coulter also lambasts Catholics (liberal and conservative) as “fake Christians.”

As Newshounds noted: “It seems like right wing diva Coulter is pretty pissed off about those Catholic public figures who are advocating that immigrant children should be treated with tolerance. So she blasted off some tweets which were, uh, strongly critical of these Catholics, including several directed towards friend of Fox Cardinal Timothy Dolan.”

She ramped up the rhetoric in a series of tweets assassinating the character and faith of compassionate Christians: (Emphasis added.)

  • If we got them hooked up to a lie detector, we’d find out not one of these moral show-offs believes in God
  • Oh wait, I’m sorry, Cardinal Dolan –you wanted to be a moral show-off while sending them to someone else’s property?
  • Not ONE of the grandstanding fake “Christians” in these photos believes in God. Look at them! It’s SEIU!
  • Deval Patrick, tearfully cited the Bible AS HE SUGGESTED THAT MIGRANT CHILDREN COULD BE TEMPORARILY HOUSED AT MILITARY BASES IN HIS STATE
  • How about the governor’s mansion, you phony, grandstanding, Bible-toting hypocrite?

Notably, Ted Cruz and Glenn Beck were among those providing aid.

But Coulter is not one to let the truth get in the way of one of her phony narratives.[9] She does conservatives and Christians a disservice[10] by misrepresenting both and by offering herself up as a parody to, ironically, discredit those she claims to defend!

If Coulter truly understood the gospel that she purports to champion, she could be a force to be reckoned with. Until then, she is merely the blowhard she once cautioned against becoming.[11]
