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.
