Greetings from the Culture of Life

The following comments were collected from posts made clearly after the announcement that Cindy Sheehan's Mom suffered the stroke, from threads whose headline announced the stroke. Several things are clear. First, many of these people purport to be religious by offering to pray for the mother. Second, many clearly are not Christians (not that I am blaming any other official religion for them) because they reject the clear New Testament injunctions to pray especially for those with whom one has a grievance. Christians understand that this is simple self-protection. The enemy is not any human being, but anger, pride, greed, and so on. Focusing one's constructive energies onto one's opponents is self-protective. There are a few posts that express genuine Christian sentiments, but these are a few sheep among many wolves. Third, these angry, hateful sentiments are the norm among the posts. They outnumber posts that express some human concern, some awareness of how dreadful strokes are by perhaps 5:1. Finally, the posts weren't even the most hateful part of the comments. There are graphics that are even more offensive. For example, depicting Cindy Sheehan as Yassir Arafat amounts to eliminationist rhetoric even more extreme than the verbal stuff. From the Huffington Post comments: God, won't be long before someone on this site accuses Karl Rove Dick Cheyney, or Halliburton of causing the poor woman's stroke.Posted by: Anonymous on August 18, 2005 at 05:44PM We need reporters to verify this story. I want to know from the doctors what caused this stroke. Was it shame brought about from her daughter trashing her grandson's memory?Posted by: jc on August 18, 2005 at 05:50PM CIA agents under the orders of Herr Bush were successful in their operation to give Cindy's mom a stroke. CIA havent said they didnt do this proving that they in fact have. The Demon Bush must be stopped, this reign of terror by he who must not be named must be stopped!Posted by: Anonymous on August 18, 2005 at 06:49PM I wonder if this stroke is "karma". Posted by: Oarsman on August 18, 2005 at 09:36PM for your info. i hate that ugly bitch cindy. i hate her just because she's so damn ugly. her son too.Posted by: X1 on August 18, 2005 at 09:33PM From Crawford Update: Anonymous said... Cindy, read the following and read it carefully, slowly, and more than once so that it sinks in. ...Saddam Hussein is a disgusting example of human vermin. Cindy Sheehan, you disgust me even more....6:58 PM CDT Anonymous said... good job giving your mom a stroke 7:13 PM CDT Anonymous said... move out of the usa if you dont like it here, get over it 7:22 PM CDT Anonymous said... buh-bye! 15 mins up. Get help. Your lefty friends used you like a condom 7:32 PM CDT coach said... She left? What a bunch of fools you suckers were that went to Camp Casey. Congrats, Bush for winning the face off! 7:47 PM CDT And no post on mindless hate would be complete without a sample from the devil's playground To: Nighthaven Lets find out where she's going..home? we can protest the fact that she won't meet with our President. 5 posted on 08/18/2005 2:26:14 PM PDT by samadams2000 (Pitchforks and Lanterns..with a smiley face!) To: Nighthaven I can't believe the Jews would resort to giving her mother a stroke, just to end all the bad PR Sheehan was making for their war on behalf of Israel. Some things are just beyond the pale. 7 posted on 08/18/2005 2:26:22 PM PDT by thoughtomator (Just call me Mr. Zero Diversity Points!) To: Nighthaven intense feelings of embarrassment and shame can be tough on the old ticker. 8 posted on 08/18/2005 2:26:22 PM PDT by getitright (There's no peace in appeasement.) To: Nighthaven Stick a fork in the Sheehan protest in's done. 19 posted on 08/18/2005 2:27:44 PM PDT by Snardius To: Nighthaven My sincere condolences to her. My mother would have driven to Crawford and shot me if I was doing what she is up to. 27 posted on 08/18/2005 2:28:35 PM PDT by mmercier (Bungee jumping into the abyss) To: Nighthaven Maybe now all the media attention given to the moonbats will die down. Normally, I would have prayers for Ms. Sheehan -- maybe I will for her mother, but not for her. 58 posted on 08/18/2005 2:34:48 PM PDT by fatnotlazy These are not unusual. To: Nighthaven God works in mysterious ways. I don't trust myself to say anything else. 72 posted on 08/18/2005 2:35:58 PM PDT by McLynnan To: Nighthaven As they say in the airport: "Buh-Bye" 92 posted on 08/18/2005 2:37:44 PM PDT by benjaminjjones Over 500 comments were posted on this thread as of the time of the post. Savaging a woman who may be about to lose her mother is apparently one of the top priorities of the right wing at this moment.
The hits keep on coming.

If this fake Anti-American vigil is about your son and against the war, then why are you telling Israel to get out of the Paleogetto. You and the Leftist bastards that follow you are nothing but a bunch of Anti-Semite's. What does Israel have anything do with your son?

Did you know that the Palestinian people are nothing but throw away Syrian, Jordaninan, and Egytian trash that their own countries don't want anymore? ...Learn your history bitch, before you open your filthy mouth about Israel.

Also, I guess Cheney's Halliburton was responsible for your mother suffering a stroke.

Wow! First Cindy Sheehan was bad because she wasn't hanging around her family, and now she's bad BECAUSE she's hanging around her family! How right-wingers don't spontaneously combust from all their contradictory logic is beyond me.
I understand that God has a plan for non-spontaneous combustion of unrepentant hypocrites.
