And On the Other Hand

Rush Limbaugh TOTALLY needs to be reigned in.

The difference?  One is a former child-actor who really seems to be a good guy (I know, I can’t know, but still…). He even really seems to be living the life of a good Christian. He’s living his conviction, which is why I feel he deserves to be left alone.

The other:  A bloated, self-important shit-stirrer who will lie, cheat, steal, bully and manipulate to make sure his is the loudest and last voice heard.  He does what he does deliberately, claiming satire and absurdity, to an audience who listens to him like he’s a messiah.  He has an obligation to be honest because of his position. Instead he abuses it to the detriment of the country.  That’s pretty unforgivable.

Rush deserves to be raked over whatever coals one can find.

  1. He really seems like a bad, bad man.

    If you’re talking about Kirk Cameron, telling kids homosexuality is “unnatural” and that evolution is “just a theory” is still pretty harmful.

      This is why I’m all for public schools where teachers like me will risk being fired to discuss it in class. Mind you, I am aware that those who don’t want to risk learning about life will send their children elsewhere (private religious schools. Remember, this is not, no matter how much people want to paint it as such, a “Christian” issue.). However, parents are allowed to be parents. I doubt he’s got any new “kids” hanging on to every word based on re-runs of whatever show he was on (not “Who’s the Boss, right?).

      I’m not crazy about his message at all, nor do I agree; but he is allowed to think what he thinks. I’d prefer people just give him a hard-core “Really?” stare and walk away. Then when they are with THEIR children, they can explain why they don’t agree. Win-win.

      That said, you know any child who is gay and wants to internalize this message, send him/her to me. We’ll talk.

        I’m pretty sure most people under 40 are giving him “Really?” stares, and if he were just saying idiotic things to Piers Morgan now and then I wouldn’t care. But when he distributes disgustingly edited copies of Darwin’s “Origin of Species” to college students under the pretext that it’s the real thing, he’s doing real harm to the institution of learning.

    I was not aware of the pamphlet thing. *That* I do agree is completely harmful. It’s also incredibly dishonest, which is a character, integrity and honesty issue. Thank you for sharing.
