Ann Coulter "Christian" Soldier





















The conservative pundit explains why liberals are 'godless' and why she considers herself a good Christian.

Beliefnet:
What does it mean to be a good Christian, and do you consider yourself to be a good Christian?

Ann Coulter:
To believe with all your heart at every moment that God loved a wretch like you so much that he sent his only son to die for your sins. Most of the time, I'm an extraordinarily good Christian.

Beliefnet:
Do you attend church frequently? Do you pray, and whom and what do you pray for?

Ann Coulter:
Yes and yes. I pretend to attend a giant church in New York City, where I pray for the souls of people who claim I've never been there. I pray for mercy and divine protection from God's enemies. When I'm in a jaunty mood, I pray for Him to smite liberals.

Beliefnet:
You say you're a Christian. Do you think Jesus would want you to be nicer to your political opponents?

Ann Coulter:

Who knows? Maybe He'll say I was too tough or maybe He'll chastise me for not being tough enough on those who hate Him. Ask the money-changers in the temple how “nice” Jesus was. Maybe He'll say I needed more jokes or fewer adjectives. I'll just apologize for not getting it right and thank him for dying for my sins.

I found it interesting how she dodged the question about Pastor Jim Wallis. I really liked his book God's Politics that asked the question: "Since when did believing in God and having moral values make you pro-war, pro-rich, and pro-Republican"

This question was also very interesting:
"Are churches that don't agree with your politics or religious beliefs not really churches?

Correct: They're called 'mosques.'

Actually, the answer to that question is contained in what those in the publishing industry refer to as the "title” of my book, which is: 'Godless: The CHURCH of Liberalism.' "

Reminds me of one of my favorite passages from God's Politics: "Abraham Lincoln had it right. Our task should not to be to invoke religion and the name of God by claiming God's blessing and endorsement of all our national policies and practices--saying, in effect, that God is on our side. Rather, Lincoln said, we should pray and worry earnestly whether we are on God's side."
