Great Ann Coulter Quote today about Brit Hume's statements

Ann Coulter's article today on the liberal reaction to Brit Hume's comment on Fox New Sunday was was Brit Hume's gutsy statement to begin with. But one of her quote's just made me laugh out loud.
What religion -- what topic -- induces this sort of babbling idiocy? (If liberals really want to keep people from hearing about God, they should give Him his own show on MSNBC.)
I do not know how to feel about Brit Hume's comments because I am conflicted myself that maybe he did not pick the right "time, place, and manner" to say what he said. I say that because I feel protective of intellectual people like him who believe in God. I care about his credibility and do not want him marginalized for making the statement. But really what he did was brave and came from the most honest place in himself and I have never admired someone more. Those few sentences revealed all I needed to know about his own journey. As soon as I heard it I was reminded that the suicide of his own son had brought him to God, and it made me tear up. Because that is how it is suppose to work isn't it? Out of his own loss his own suffering - he found his way again and he was better for it. He reminded me that Good, intellectual people who "have it all" need God too, even though everything else tells us its not so. Brit Hume did something I know I could never have done given the same opportunity under the same circumstances. I admire him because Brit Hume is a man of great respect in a hard profession. It is difficult enough to get men to go to church with their wife and kids...most churches were started and run by women and make up the population of most churches today...even though men remain the leadership in most churches. And here was a MAN on TV with no one putting him on the spot to say what he said and he did it anyway - even though "they" were going to make fun of him - he had to know that - and he did it anyway. I think I have just witnessed an example of a true "disciple" - and my ears cannot believe it. I hope he never regrets what he said...even if time shows it would have been better he never said it. I am in awe.

I totally forgot to read Ann's column this week.

I was shocked when Britt Hume said that. If there's any way to attract the ridicule of left-wing bigots, bringing up Christianity is it. That's why I seldom take a position from a religious viewpoint. Liberals can "win" the argument (they argue, they don't debate)by simply saying they don't believe in a bearded white guy who lives in the sky.

Hume's remarks were surprising because they seemed so out of place.

Tonto, you are absolutely right, of course. We heard the statements, and they went in one ear and out the other. I had not considered the long term ramifications of Hume's statement. Possibly because his statement was so obviously common sense. Most regular people believe and understand it. There is, to us, no controversy here.

Perhaps that's why I can never be a Liberal.
