Sunday morning I received an e-mail from a niece concerning a movie about to debut this summer here in the U.S., titled Corpus Christi. Apparently this movie depicts Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals. I can't help but think it is in very bad taste but recognize it is covered by free speech. But I do wonder if Christians will riot, burn and destroy and if they do will President Obama cut them the same slack he did the Muslims he said were demonstrating over an offensive movie depiction of Mohamed? Will he denounce the Corpus Christi movie as he did the one about the Muslim profit? Will progressives rally to the defense of free speech and call Christians homophobes for objecting to such a depiction of their Lord and Savior?
Actually I expect none of these things to happen because Christians will not riot, will not burn and destroy. I only ask these questions to point out the differences between Christians and Muslims and Christians and the progressives who denigrate Christians at their every opportunity. Do you, readers, suppose the term bigots can be applied to those anti Christians I refer to here?
On a different note Henry Osmer's letter the other day brought me back to another time. I remember well when our returning solders arriving home from "Nam" were spat upon, called "war criminals" and "baby killers" and I remember who they were that did these things. They called themselves antiwar protesters then. Today most of them now call themselves progressives. Let me be clear not all of today's progressives were guilty of these actions but all those who were are now progressives today. Also let me say I know Henry was not one of those low lifes (thank you for your service, Henry). 2.5 years in Nam was a long time. I'm guessing here that we both feel the same about how our fellow servicemen were treated.
I was very lucky, I was stationed in Germany during my enlistment and I do have a DD 214.
