Let’s check in on one of my favorite columnists, Doug Giles.
Why do I love Doug Giles?
He’s thoughtful, witty, insightful, funny, irreverent, and not to mention diverse. By diverse, I don’t mean he has 14 different ethic backgrounds that would make him a favorite for the guys who write the various pamphlets for the DMV spots.
I mean he is a minister, writer, and radio talk show host.
His latest column deals with terrorists. Does the minister in Giles have him turning the other cheek, offering loads of excuses, government programs and support groups for people in turbans who want to blow us to smithereens?
Giles relates how he, in my estimation, successfully and surgically tore a Christian radio talk host into ribbons.
“As a patriotic white male Christian redneck, as far as I can deduce from the holy text, Jesus and the balance of Scripture seem to be okay with dunking Achmed if said butt munch has the 411 regarding the 10/20 of the next mass slaughter of innocent Americans.
Please note: If Christ wasn’t cool with irrigating irate Islamicists for facts, I must admit, I would still have to green light our boys getting data from enemy combatants 007 style. Stick a fire hose up their tailpipe and turn it on full blast. I don’t care. I’m not as holy as most of you super saints or as evolved as some of you progressive atheists purport to be. Security beats spirituality in this scenario, as far as I’m concerned.”
Giles continues that the radio talk show host did his best to put on his “60 Minutes” routine:
“He then asked me, in kind of a tsk-tsk tone, for a proof text or two from Jesus’ lips and la Biblia that would come even close to him wishing or implementing ill on those who would harm or kill the innocent. This was like taking candy from a baby for me.”
Dear God, he is so good!
