Funny, Isn't It?
By Steve Higginbotham
February 24, 2004
 

 

  • Funny how much criticism Mel Gibson's movie, "The Passion of the Christ" has received from the media for it's "excessively gory and bloody," yet this same media had little or nothing to say about such movies as "Schindler's List," "Saving Private Ryan," "Friday the 13th," and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre."
  • Funny how the media  has heavily criticized, and censored "The Passion of Christ" for stirring anti-Semitic feelings, yet this same media never criticized films such as "Tora, Tora, Tora," "Custer's Last Stand," or "The Diary of Anne Frank" for stirring hatred of Japanese, American Indians, and Germans.
  • Funny how the Mayor of San Francisco can illegally issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples without being arrested for breaking the law, but if that same Mayor would have illegally issues Concealed Weapons Licenses, would he not have been arrested?
  • Funny how Congress can pass laws that allow a mother to murder her own unborn baby, while Congress is presently considering passing Unborn Victims of Violence Act that will punish a person who would be responsible for taking the life of an unborn baby.
  • Funny how some people cry long and loud that "Government has no right to legislate morality," yet these same people expect the Government to legislate against stealing, rape, and murder.
  • Funny how Christians are "fed up" and disgusted with the moral climate of our society, yet they remain silent and take no action to change things.
Funny, isn't it?  Well, on second thought, maybe not.
