Oh, no. Say it ain’t so;
Columnist Ann Coulter Shocks Cable TV Show,Declaring ‘Jews Need to Be Perfected by Becoming Christians’
Thursday, October 11, 2007
Slash-and-burn columnist Ann Coulter shocked a cable TV talk-show audience Monday when she declared that Jews need to be “perfected” by becoming Christians, and that America would be better off if everyone were Christian.
Coulter made the remarkable statements during an often heated appearance to promote her new book on advertising guru Donny Deutsch’s CNBC show “The Big Idea.”In response to a question from Deutsch asking Coulter if “it would be better if we were all Christian,” the controversial columnist responded: “Yes.” “We should all be Christian?” Deutsch repeated.“Yes,” Coulter responded, asking Deutsch, who is Jewish, if he would like to “come to church with me.”Deutsch, pressing Coulter further, asked, “We should just throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians?” She responded: “Yeah.”
Coulter deflected Deutsch’s assertion that her comments were anti-Semitic, matter-of-factly telling the show’s obviously upset host, “That is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews.”

Now you may agree or disagree with her remarks. But do you think she should have made them? I think Coulter should reconsider Jesus’ command to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
