Last week, GOProud announced that Ann Coulter would be joining the organization’s Advisory Council as Honorary Chair where her official title would be “Gay Icon.”
Coulter’s willingness to serve in this capacity has created utter confusion for the hosts of the American Family Association’s “AFA Report” where Fred Jackson, Ed Vitagliano and Buster Wilson were left wondering just how on earth Coulter can do this and still consider herself to be a Christian:
Vitagliano: Ann Coulter is hard to read but if you’re a Christian, I think you should take more care to tailor your commitments in things like this to your Christian views. I don’t know whether she just hasn’t thought this through or what, but this is kind of disappointing to me.
This is not an issue, I don’t think, that you clown around with. This is a very serious issue. I know she likes to laugh, she likes to have fun with her politics, but this is not an issue that you clown around with. It has serious real-world repercussions.
Jackson: I think it begs the questions then Buster: how must Ann Coulter feel about the authority of Scripture? How can you join a group like this and allowed to be called the honorary chair and gay icon of the group and still feel comfortable calling yourself an evangelical Christian? There’s a gap there in the reasoning.
Wilson: I don’t know. It raises a huge red flag for me. The Bible has got to be the standard and it’s not.
