I figured it would not take long for Rosie O'Donnell to say something stupid on "The View." On September 11, 2006, she said:
"Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have a separation of church and state. We're a democracy here."
I was trying to count how many times Pat Robertson blew up a mosque, or how many times Norma McCorvey hijacked an airliner and flew it into a building, or when and how Terry Randall stabbed to death a film maker who made a movie critical of Christianity. I am trying to remember the last time Priests for Life waved signs saying, "Death to Infidels" after a cartoonist drew a caricature of Jesus Christ.
Yet . . . Rosie can continue to spout her liberalism and continue to follow a gay lifestyle with her partner, raising children without a father, and not fear execution or, at best, a public lashing.
And "radical Christianity" is as dangerous as radical Islam? Granted, Christianity is pretty damned radical, what with God assuming a human form and allowing Himself to be nailed to a cross to die for our sins. I mean, c'mon, if not radical, that was - shall we say - rather extreme of Our Lord.
Oddly enough, when Mel Gibson did a very stupid thing in a drunken state, Barbara Walters vowed she would never see another one of his films, presumably incensed at his insensitivity. Well, now, Babs . . . if Mel is an anti-Semite, what does that make your co-host on "The View?"
BTW, if you want to view the WBE (Worst Blog Ever), check out Rosie's - it is ghastly.
