Coulter’s ‘immigrants – church – pedophiles’ crack draws hell of a Catholic response

splitanncoulterppope0923Conservative author and columnist Ann Coulter has made no secret of her disdain for the pronouncements of Pope Francis on worldly matters like immigration and the environment.

But her crack about pedophilia among priests on Wednesday was too much for even conservative Coulter fans to take.

Even if she was trying to make a conservative point.

Coulter was responding to a statement by the pope in the White House.

“As the son of an immigrant family, I am happy to be a guest in this country, which was largely built by such families,” Francis said, according to The Wall Street Journal.

For Coulter, an outspoken advocate of cracking down on illegal immigration in the United States, the statement was infuriating.

The blowback was swift — and fierce. American Catholics have spent more than two decades sickened by the clergy abuse scandal — and the way the mainstream media has used to to smear the entire church. Hearing a line like that from a conservative they normally agree with was too much.

Of course she was trying to be incendiary. Ann Coulter gets incendiary like a normal person gets hungry — regularly and at least three times a day.

But she was also making a point — that what the pope said about America and immigration was simply not true.

Contrary to the popular media, Catholic priests are no more likely to be child sexual abusers than the general population (even the lefty Newsweek magazine says as much), and they’re a good deal less likely to sexually abuse children than public school teachers (who get a free pass from the media).

For an anti-illegal immigration activist like Coulter, to say that America was built by immigrants — as understood in the current context of hordes of illegals trampling across the southern border — is abhorrent, and wrong. Just as for a Catholic to be told Mother Church was built by pedophiles would be abhorrent — and dead, flat wrong.

Coulter has built a career on conservative polemics — and as a confirmed despiser of public school teachers unions, she surely knows that priests as a class are much less likely to be sexually involved with minors than your basic unionized teacher.

But a Catholic church in America, sensitive to an obvious sore point and trying to welcome the leader of the church, didn’t want to hear it, especially right after Coulter’s most recent social medial storm when she used an obscenity in a Twitter post about Jewish voters and the Republican primary debate.

No, she probably isn’t truly hateful. And she damn sure isn’t ignorant.

But she can sure sound like it.

Ann Coulter INFURIATES another entire religion:
‘This is why our founders distrusted Catholics’

    The religious right, never wants to admit the truth about their religious leaders.

      Your selection of terms is too broad – it makes it erroneous and nonsensical.

    2. Rip Rogers says:

      Catholics and Christians are not on the same team.
      We came here to create a nation to get away from them. They murdered us for 1500yrs.

      1. Rip Rogers says:

        Had you said, “Catholics”, I could have agreed.

      2. Patriot1119 says:

        people claim it is about freedom of religion, but it’s always been about religious conformity with dissenters being the victims of the believers. sometimes catholics were the persecuted. this is from ‘religion and the founding of the american republic’:

        ‘The religious persecution that drove settlers from Europe to the British North American colonies sprang from the conviction, held by Protestants and Catholics alike, that uniformity of religion must exist in any given society. This conviction rested on the belief that there was one true religion and that it was the duty of the civil authorities to impose it, forcibly if necessary, in the interest of saving the souls of all citizens. Nonconformists could expect no mercy and might be executed as heretics. The dominance of the concept, denounced by Roger Williams as “inforced uniformity of religion,” meant majority religious groups who controlled political power punished dissenters in their midst. In some areas Catholics persecuted Protestants, in others Protestants persecuted Catholics, and in still others Catholics and Protestants persecuted wayward coreligionists.’

        1. Rip Rogers says:

          Not true, the people that made America were my family and their friends and they were Protestant.

          Here we go again writing Americans out of history to accommodate our enemy.
          We came everyone from that unholy band of angels governed by the Vatican. It is why this America stands.

          Your history was created by the Vatican, not historians. I have never read such lies unless it was from the Mormons or Muslims.
          We are not the same and it is embarrassing when the un-knowledgeable compare us to you.

          I am thankful for one Catholic, Rev Martin Luther, he figured it out as did many others. They got to read (at risk of their lives) something outside of Catholicism and it set them free. They got to read some of the original stuff.

          I am thankful also to Queen Elisabeth the first. She at least stopped them from murdering Protestants in England. She had to create the ungodly Church of England to do it.

          1. Patriot1119 says:

            well, let’s look at what i’ve seen you talk about over the last few weeks. you are against same-sex marriage and claim the supreme court committed overreach in order to come to their ruling. you’ve made comments along the line that gays need to see the err of their ways and be saved, and the court and all liberals/progressives/democrats in government need to be replaced by those with christian morals, by armed revolution if necessary. sure sounds to me like this passage from my original post (the one true religion being christian): “This conviction rested on the belief that there was one true religion and that it was the duty of the civil authorities to impose it, forcibly if necessary, in the interest of saving the souls of all citizens. Nonconformists could expect no mercy and might be executed as heretics. The dominance of the concept, denounced by Roger Williams as “inforced uniformity of religion,” meant majority religious groups who controlled political power punished dissenters in their midst.”

            perhaps you should review some of your posts, and those of your friends. you might then see just how similar to this you sound in your butt-smooching to kim davis.

          2. Rip Rogers says:

            What you have done is stalk me apparently. Taken words out of context and made up a story to suit your narrative projected onto me and the American Christian Community.

            True I do not approve of the homosexual lifestyle. It is repulsive to
            humans and God will not tolerate it.

            False, I did not say or mean Christian is the true religion. I avoid that
            phrase. God/Jesus is the only true being in charge of the Soul/Spirit.

            I will say that Catholics are not Christian but Catholic. Yes, there is a
            difference between us.

            Did not say or imply it was the duty of civil authorities to impose
            anything. Civil authority is given by the majority not your less than 2%
            perverts.

            Did say the constitution gives us the right to defend it, which in turn
            defends us and our country that was indeed created by Protestants. We had permission to come over and do that by the King.

            Yes, we can impose the militia against ANYONE that threatens our Liberty.

            We are to keep weapons for OUR protection and FREEDOM.

            We are to protect ourselves against ALL enemies both foreign and domestic.

            Viva la Kim Davis and Jesus the Lord of all

            you erroneously assume that i’m either a catholic or get my information from catholic publications. in case you never heard the expression before, ass-u-me makes an @$$ out of u and me. i made no assumptions, so that just leaves ass-u. it’s really embarrassing when the unknowledgeable (no hyphen – just because spell check says it isn’t a word doesn’t make it so) jump to unjustified conclusions!

          4. Rip Rogers says:

            You intentionally deceived me on purpose in an attempt to have the higher ground. You were one and got tired of trying to jump thru the hoops they impose?
            Read the original text, which is Greek and Hebrew with some Aramaic. No Jesus spoke in higher Hebrew not the lower Aramaic.
            Then remember, you do not have do one single thing in the Old testament. You will die if you try.
            The New is where Grace abounds and it is because Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice and paid all of the debts of sin. We do not have to have anyone pray for us, we are the Royal Priesthood.

      You have not read American history.
      Protestants left Europe to get away from those religions. They call it America.

      You sound like Butt Bumpers Society secretary…

  4. Rip Rogers says:

    Ann Coulter is a true American, she shows why we created this place.
    I am so ready for the internal war.
    This time, we are going to settle the Civil War legitimately and for the right reasons.

    Men may run the religion but they are fallible and do not make the religion. I am a Catholic and I believe in my religion but that being said to me he is NOT a representative of the church. I would not follow this man to church. I do not hold my religion responsible for men’s mistakes, bad judgments, and deplorable behavior. The religion did not teach them to do that THEY made the choice to do evil and THEY are responsible for their actions and behavior. God id not.

  6. TeaPartyImmigrationCoalition1 says:

    We have lost a number of Catholics on our FB page because they steadfastly refuse to believe the prophecy of St Malachy who said that this is the last Pope. It is not an obscure prophecy. The Vatican itself was designed in part around it: there are only enough spaces for portraits for the exact number of Popes prophesied by Malachy. And all the last several Popes referred to it. There are other prophecies that indicate that this last Petrus Romanus (as he is known in the prophecy) would also be the false prophet.
    This pope is an antipope. He is for climate change which we have proven to be a false narrative which was developed so that the UN could impose a carbon tax to pay for an international army/. This pope has said that muslims and Christians worship the same god. No we do not. Their Jesus Christ comes to kill real Christians and he is not part of the Trinity. That is a blatant falsehood.
    Now this pope tries to get us to commit international and national suicide by embracing illegal aliens. To Hell with Francis.

    1. Doug says:

      I’m glad that’s all cleared up now.

      Wasn’t it also St.Malachy who said, “Take the Seahawks in the last Super Bowl.”

    The immigrant, has pushed the Founding Protestants to the back ground in the nation WE made.
    We are emerging again in spite of the revised history that would put the immigrant above us. We will shove that “PC” up the immigrant that has refused to assimilate in total.
    If this country cannot be as we made it, I am ready to burn it to the ground. Dang if I will standby and let someone have what my family spent 406 yrs making in the name of God.

    1. DrArtaud says:

      Then, dear sir, address your representatives. They are the ones that made the money available and crafted the legislation that made it all possible.

      1. Rip Rogers says:

        Well I have.
        Former Sen Kay Bailey Hutchinson, protected the illegal alien including the 50,000 yearly average of illegal alien Irish Catholics. She is Irish descendant. The same with Sen John Cornyn he is Irish Catholic. I hound the dickens out of him for giving the El Paso TX border fence money to Mexico to spend as they desired.

        The enemy are the only ones with money to run and take our country from us.
        I voted for Cruz and will vote for Trump. Gonna bury the NWO

    Too many of us eagerly jumped on hating (as if we needed another excuse, never let objectivity cloud your personal bias) Catholics because of the child molestation and cover-ups in the Catholic church, even though few of the 33,000+ priests in the U.S. were involved, and we let other children be molested by teachers, politicians, actors, sports figures, and more, and agencies handling those groups try to cover-up as well, after all, it was just priests, right?

    Look at Subway (Sandwich shop) recent problem.

    Franchisee: Subway execs knew about Jared Fogle’s interest in children
    http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2015/08/28/subway-executives-knew-jared-fogel-pedophile-children-former-franchisee/71297640/

    And as some of us leveled charges and degraded the Catholic church with our usual zeal, the same molestation was occurring in the Protestant faith, by ministers, and in the Jewish faith by rabbis.

    And even Rush Limp-paw could not contain his hatred of the Pope, I’m likely through listening to the one 1/2 hour that I could catch everyday that’s become nothing more than an Apple iPhone, security systems, and Life-Lok commercial anyway.

    As the country is flooded by muslims, and illegal immigrants, and legal immigrants, and H1-B Guest Workers, we’ll just blame the Catholic church because some of us always blame the Catholic church and seldom let the outpouring of hate cloud our “Christian views”. And the flood will continue until your grandchildren’s grandchildren will be looked on as freaks because they are white, speak English, or are intelligent. But they can look back with pride and say “at least our ancestors hated Catholics”.

    Try holding the politicians responsible for a change, not only are they the responsible persons, but they, and not Catholics, are the common denominator in environmental laws, money for “charities” that are bringing these illegal immigrants and refugees to the U.S., and laws that allow them to be brought here. It’s convenient to displace aggression, but we’re perishing under our biases because we are not addressing the cause.

    “25 MORE SHOCKING ARRESTS”: PASTORS CHARGED WITH SEX CRIMES
    http://www.awkwardmomentsbible.com/shocking-pastors-on-the-prowl/

    Insurance companies, child advocacy groups and religion scholars say there is no evidence that Catholic clergy are more likely to be involved in sexual misconduct than other clergy or professionals. Yet ongoing civil litigation of decades-old cases against a church with deep pockets keeps the Catholic Church in the headlines.

    “There is no plausible evidence that Catholic priests are gangs of sexual predators, as they are being portrayed,” said Pennsylvania State University Prof. Philip Jenkins, eminent religion and history scholar, and a non-Catholic who’s studied the church’s abuse problems for 20 years.

    Ann Coulter is a talking mucus plug born December 8, 1961, waiting still for the human to be born. She looks like the poster child for an anorexic nervosa ad, or an ad for starving brainless adults. With her looks failing, she has but her repugnance to keep her in the limelight, I’m waiting for her to announce her sex change and start dating Caitlyn Jenner.

    Just consider the source. If she were the star in a “Talking Mr. Ed” show remake, they’d have to pull the tail aside so you can understand her and her dialog would be virtually as limited as it is now, nothing but hot air.

    1. DrArtaud says:

      Yes, she’s ugly. Her voice is awful. Beady eyes, and a pompous way about her. She’s the Conservative version of lena dunham.
