Author Stephen King under fire for slamming Tea Party, Christians on Twitter

Author Stephen King got into a bit of trouble on Twitter Tuesday after he lambasted the Tea Party and Christians for what he believes to be their position on the current immigration crisis. Fortunately, there were plenty of conservatives and Christians – including TheBlaze’s own Dana Loesch and Dan Andros – ready to put King in his place. Glenn discussed King’s ignorance on radio this morning.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“Did you see what Stephen King did yesterday,” Glenn asked. “This is absolutely phenomenal to me. Stephen King yesterday comes out and he is tweeting all day long. He’s tweeting about, ‘where are all the Christians,’ ‘where are all the Tea Partiers,’ ‘I guess when it comes to love thy neighbor, it doesn’t count if you’re Hispanic.’”

Twitchy aggregated some of King’s tweets and the best rebuttals he received. Most people simply wanted to know how deep the author’s hypocrisy ran. After all, it does not appear as though King has visited the border yet or spoken out about the issue in any way other than bashing those he disagrees with politically.

Below are a few of King’s tweets:

“This is a guy who said that I was Satan’s mentally challenged younger brother. That’s what he called me,” Glenn said. “Of course he’s not going to recognize our effort… He can’t get past his hate.”

While many Twitter users jumped in to point out King’s ignorance on the topic – including the fact that he resides at a fenced in compound in Maine, which is thousands of miles away from the southern border – TheBlaze’s head writer Dan Andros made sure King was aware of what Mercury One did this past weekend for the border towns that are currently being inundated.

TheBlaze’s Dana Loesch, meanwhile, had quite a bit to say on the topic. Below are a few of the highlights.

Needless to say, King has yet to respond to any of his critics. Glenn believes the best thing anyone can do in a situation like this is simply let the facts speak for themselves.

“Now, if we are just who we’re supposed to be, when Stephen King says this, you can reach out in love and say, ‘Stephen, here are the pictures. Now can we actually have a debate about the issue on the border because we’re already doing that,’” Glenn concluded. “You win immediately. You don’t throw it in his face and say, ‘Look what we’re doing.’ You don’t do that. You just say, ‘It’s already being done.’”

    Maybe Stephen King thinks people care about what he tweets or says; most of us don’t. His nonsensical ramblings are just that and unworthy of any attention.

    What a Giant D-Bagger. He’s soooo stupid he doesn’t realize the Song “Revolution” was John Lennon’s answer to European Communist who wanted the Beatles to join their cause. Lennon spanked their commie azszszszses with lyrics like “but when you talk about destruction, don’t you know that you can count me out “………… And “if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Obama, er, Mao, you ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow”. Revolution was his answer to the liberal/communist jerks like King. “NO”, “NYET”.

    King with his $400 million dollar worth could probably help a lot of people. Is he like most liberals, charitable only with other people’s money?

    How many south American kids could King store at his mansion? Horror fiction novelist Stephen King can boast to having one of the
    priciest homes on all of Florida’s west coast. King’s Sarasota, Florida
    home which he purchased in April 2001 for $8.9 million. Located on Casey
    Key, this home offers three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a swimming pool,
    and 6,817 square feet.

    Well, then you’re an ignorant fool, just like he is. Did you read the article above about what CHRISTIANS are in fact doing? Does “Suffer the little children” mean ignore your own laws, create a crisis, and then complain about the consequences? You’re with King on this, because it’s your “side”, facts be damned.

    You have to go to the border to have an opinion on it? That would mean you 3 guys sitting behind a computer at your desks have to go over to Iraq, Israel, Afghanistan etc. I don’t necessarily agree with King, but you do the same thing he just did on a daily basis. Way to take the immature route and get personal in regard to his writing. That made any opinion you have invalid from that point on.

  • Glenn Coughlin

    I don’t agree with King’s views on Christians, but he is pretty accurate when describing the tea party.

    He writes fiction. He barricades himself into his compound to avoid having to deal with non-fiction world. His reality is only the way he creates it, all others are exempt … including those same children he uses in his arguments.

  • Thomas Churchwell

    Well it is so much easier to sit on a TV show and blast every one cause a few years from now you can tell everyone how wrong you was like you always do. Get the attention at the moment. Mr. King has a right to his opinion as well as you but I haven’t yet seen him change his opinion years later and tell people how wrong he was. You do that all the time Beck. Why go down and feed a few people on the border Mr. Beck? Because it is good publicity and you can always say “Look what I did and you didn’t” Do what you can for that paycheck Beck

    SK is a hate filled atheist I have never really had any respect for him. I usually avoid his movies if I can because he obviously is possessed of many demons. Too bad when the muslims take over he will be beheaded fairly quickly I hope he has time to accept Christ before then but I doubt he will be able to surpress the demons long enough. Just sad all around.

    He also slammed the Tea Party for loving the Constitution while being foggy on the separation of church and state. Then got snarky about it when it was pointed out to him that phrase cannot be found anywhere in the Constitution. He is an elitist, judgemental ass.

  • Sally Cronkright

    In what way is King accurate in describing the Tea Party? Just curious thank you

  • Anonymous

    There’s a difference between a recognized celebrity making insulting statements without knowing the facts, and common citizens stating their opinions. King has the money and resources to be able to do something about a problem. King has a wide audience and should expect to be ridiculed when he gets something wrong. And Mr. King supported the Administration that created the problem in the first place. Instead, Mr. King was critical of people who actually ARE doing something about the problem, and doesn’t have the character to admit when he made a mistake.

  • Walter Long

    He hasn’t changed at all. This is who King’s always been,an arrogant Leftist. He somehow believes that by having had a few dozen novels and short stories published that he is somehow qualified to speak on matters of actual importance. Read his books,he gets his digs in on Conservatives when he can.

  • Jaclyn Baggesen

    My feeling is this….just look at the movies this man creates and directs…he is a typical ideologue who will never see through the foggy truth of his beliefs……and that is ok…while he sits in his fenced in compound protected from the reality of this border crisis and invasion….he can tweet all he wants…..but with all his money he should tweet and then send a little cash to help IMO……with his strange movie works I just look at him for what he is…probably a very strange individual with a kind of twisted mind…..so the twisted mind tweets…..tweet away…it is your constitutional right…..

    Better yet, wasn’t there an old method of destroying material that was too creative or thought provoking for the public? I think the churches used to burn anything that they didn’t understand- Why stop at ignoring them? :-) :-) Back to the dark ages! Always so amazed at how wound up people get from someone’s opinion.

  • Matt Horvath

    As are his books as well!

  • Sally Cronkright

    I believe the point is that King was proclaiming Christians and Tea Party members were not doing anything but screaming at the children on the border. While Christians and Tea Party members ARE at the border actually giving help and aid. Perhaps King IS providing help and aid anonymously, that certainly is a possibility. However; he mischaracterized Christians and Tea Party members, he didn’t just offer an opinion. I believe when someone is mischaracterized they have the right to defend themselves. Don’t you?

The alternative is illegally downloading, and you can’t call somebody a piece of garbage while admitting to stealing their property.

    No, he wasn’t. spending *another* cent implies that there was money already spent. He did not admit to committing a crime. But books purchased for Kindle are invariably cheaper than paper books, and what was spent past tense in no way implies future spending. That being said, there are a lot of books you can download from Amazon free, I would assume even some of SK’s books, although I find his mind a disturbing place to be, and have not read anything of his since Salem’s Lot.

    “Worship” is like a college student having to go back and take a ninth grade test. It’s remedial. The purpose of worship is to remind us of reality – who we are, and who God is. We were not created for the purpose of worship – though I know some people believe that. In our original state, we were mostly autonomous, independent creatures, and God created us for friendship and to enjoy and cultivate creation. If we had never forgotten or gone outside of our original purpose, “worship” would be superfluous. Would we constantly reaffirm who God is and who we are in him and without him, if the Fall had never happened? Why would we? So to call worship “selfish” is very misguided. God does not need us to reaffirm who he is – he knows who he is. And as far as spreading the word – why would you not try to tell others that there is a better purpose, a better pursuit in life, that would bring about the most enjoyment and fullfillment?

    Once upon a time I thought that Stephen King was one of the best authors until I read one of his books that needlessly bashed conservative thinking and George Bush. There was no call for the comment he made in the book, completely out of context to the rest of the story. The story was not about politics and no political comment was needed. I said then that I would never purchase another King book, and I haven’t. I do miss reading his books but not enough to put another dime in his pocket. I read Dean Koontz instead.

    Not at all. We have evidence of him and his work. As for Jesus as much as I want to believe, I just have a hard time. I literally would love to be religious but I just can’t do it. My point was that Jesus and the stories surrounding the bible are from a time long ago and who really knows if any of that ever happened. I guess that is why it is called faith.

  • Kent Straith

    The key is specifying “downloading.” Not bought. Downloaded. You can download something legally, in which case Stephen King doesn’t care, and still gets paid. Or, you can download something illegally, which is theft. I, also, am a fan. I have all of the books, not just the last ten. Why would you be happy about the last 10 books? The first 10 books, and the 10 books after that, were mostly better than the last 10 books.

I don’t buy at Best Buy because they support Hamas. I don’t shop at Costco since they removed Dsouza’s AMERICA from their shelves.

    “We are here to live and have families and grow.”

    That’s just the point. We are NOT effectively living, growing, or operating as families or anything else. We were meant to progress in technology, biology, sociology, art, architecture, environmentalism…anything worthwhile. We all pick from these things and devote our lives to them anyway. I see you in your picture standing next to a piece of art. Someone painted it and enjoyed doing so, and you, I assume, enjoyed admiring it as well. THESE things are our purpose. But we are far from effectively doing these things because the world is full of greed, corruption, poverty, prejudice, murder, wars, adultery, slander, arrogance, and a host of other things. We are off-task.

    Whichever side of this very article we’re commenting on you agree with – either Stephen King being an a**hole or Christians being an a**hole – someone committed a wrong there, and is contributing negatively in that situation.

    The better purpose: God is eradicating all of the above, so that we can effectively focus on those things that matter. those things that are currently hindered and destroyed by evil.

    You don’t have to have faith to believe in the Roman Empire, do you? No, it’s considered historical fact. Now consider this…within 400 years of the death of Christ, Christianity went from a religion of persecution and oppression by the Roman Empire to becoming the dominant faith of that same empire! Would this conversion have happened for some make-believe dude?
    As for why you need to devote your life to worship…you’ve got it completely backwards (and you’re not alone- so many Christians have this wrong, too, or simply don’t talk enough about it). You don’t worship because you must, you worship because you CAN. Because you choose to with freewill, because His creation is good and you want to give him props. Many people believe that they MUST worship Him or be lost to His sight and spend eternity in the Pit. They never realize that God’s Grace is a gift that can’t be bought or repaid, and that all they have to do is accept it and be thankful for it.
    My last thought on this for you Devin is…what if you spend your whole life living as a Christian, and it turns out it’s not true. Would such a life be wasted?

So instead of insulting each other why can’t we all just have discussion like adults? I did stop watching Glenn and listening to him for awhile because I hated how they laughed at people. Sometimes they really do not practice what they preach. Course we are all guilty I’m sure but they should be set to a higher standard. They complain about others who insult and then they turn around and do it. It happens everywhere these days and it’s so sad. I hope the next generation treats each other better than we do.

    Dickie, do you know for certain that the Bible was mistranslated many times and changed for political agendas?

    If you are not able to deliver proof of that, of course, you still have the right to not believe that the Bible is accurate. But without that concrete proof, what you have is conjecture – a (hopefully) educated guess. And with conjecture, you are taking AT LEAST as much risk to believe that the Bible is inaccurate as someone does who believes it is accurate. If both parties have conjecture about biblical inaccuracy, the statements cancel each other out.

    Its absolutely NOT true that there is clear, infalliable evidence of Biblical inaccuracy.

    Merely pointing out that your belief that the bible is inaccurate is no more reasonable than the belief that the bible is accurate. So its not a good argument for Christ to be a myth.

    You can enjoy your life and family even more. Christianity does not add worry, but joy. The entire message of Christ was to give us a more enjoyable life. It’s not an instant “happy button”. But the fact is, there are already things in your life that you struggle with and are hard to get through, cause you pain and suffering, etc. As any good atheist will tell you (but as a criticism), Christianity is (among other things) a coping mechanism. “Opium for the masses”. So by the admission of atheists/nihilists, the very thing they reject would make their lives at least SEEM better. Their idea of it, though, is that they don’t need God, they don’t need “opium”…they would rather live “free” of his worldview and his agenda. Ironically, since God’s agenda is to make our lives better and more meaningful, the only real “freedom” they have that a theist doesn’t, is to enjoy all the things that are detrimental and painful, and add to their suffering.

    I can imagine that some of the claims of Christ regarding his deity are hard to swallow. What if you read him strictly as a moral teacher? Read the gospels, see if what he says as far as how to live and treat others makes sense. It may be that after doing so, you feel that such counter-cultural wisdom, so counter to human thinking (especially at the time) could only come from a divine being.

    You think his recent stuff is bad… read The Lawnmower Man.short story. You know why the movie is nothing like the story? Because the story, itself, is so lame you COULDN’T make a decent movie out of it. The movie is 1000x better than the story, because they took the title, bult a decent movie around it, and took what little bits of the story were usable and put them in. End result? Awesome movie based on a horrible story. Amazing.

    If the bible didn’t condemn it, neither would we. As for minorities and the poor… as long as they come here LEGALLY and don’t LEECH off our governmental resources, then I have no issue with ‘em.

    that article really isn’t about authors not liking libraries, but more an extrapolation of lending culture to the point where few need to buy a book causing publishers to go broke. Most libraries aren’t buying a thousand copies of a book to lend out. The underlying concern is digital media can be copied and lent to multiple people by individuals.

We spend so much time getting worked up over what we hear in the news and read on the net. Glen love ya but stop feeding the fire. Giving the man attention just adds fuel to the fire. When our friends tell us a bs story we don’t hold a public forum trial on the net. We say that’s bs and move on. Hell even may take mental notes. I don’t go to king for border politics if i want to know when the next gunslinger book comes out then i’ll refer to him. The point is we get worked up over mouthpieces in the media and trolls in these forums. Glen i miss the you that taught history and values. They are getting you on the defensive. We all try to live our lives according to Christ. He never went around defending God. He educated about God. Want to influence people teach not lecture. Please people i promise you if you ignore the trolls and mouthpieces they will get louder(which will prove my point) then will grow silent due to lack of effectiveness.

    There is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that says anything about the separation of church and state. It is a phrase Jefferson used when he wrote to the Baptist Association of Danbury

    Jefferson believed that the government was to be powerless to interfere with religious expressions for a very simple reason: he had long witnessed the unhealthy tendency of government to encroach upon the free exercise of religion.

    Jefferson had no intention of allowing the government to limit, restrict, regulate, or interfere with public religious practices. He believed, along with the other Founders, that the First Amendment had been enacted only to prevent the federal establishment of a national denomination

    Unfortunately, ignorant people have twisted the the intent around to mean the opposite of what it stands for in regard to religion.

  • Kent Straith

    You started this exchange saying that the resurrection of Jesus was silly nonsense, and then progressed to saying the Bible is made up……and then went on to explain how you have a Church and a Pastor. It either sounds to me like that guy is terrible at this job, or you have NOTHING else to do on Sundays. If you think the Bible is fiction and Jesus didn’t come back to life, why are you in Church in the first place?

  • Kent Straith

    Okay, so there’s nobody left alive from when Chester A. Arthur was President. That doesn’t mean the existence of Chester A. Arthur is in doubt or that his actions are up for “maybe/maybe not.”

  • MandaLynne

    Jefferson had committed himself as President to pursuing the purpose of the First Amendment: preventing the “establishment of a particular form of Christianity” by the Episcopalians, Congregationalists, or any other denomination.

    Since this was Jefferson’s view concerning religious expression, in his short and polite reply to the Danbury Baptists on January 1, 1802, he assured them that they need not fear; that the free exercise of religion would neverbe interfered with by the federal government. As he explained:

    Gentlemen, – The affectionate sentiments of esteem and approbation which you are so good as to express towards me on behalf of the Danbury Baptist Association give me the highest satisfaction. . . . Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God; that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship; that the legislative powers of government reach actions only and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between Church and State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties. I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection and blessing of the common Father and Creator of man, and tender you for yourselves and your religious association assurances of my high respect and esteem.

    Pardon my ignorance–seriously, I’m not being facetious. (It’s hard not to sound mocking on this site…)

  • CP

    This “argument” is invalid: whether or not King gives more or less or nothing to this particular issue is irrelevant. Your comment is an ad hominem attack that prevents you from making a true counterargument to his criticism.

    King is criticizing the hypocrisy of self-described “Christian” Tea Partiers who appear to preach compassion rather than practice it. It seems he’s only asking that they hold themselves to their own standards. So… what is the informed counterargument? Try not to call anyone names…

    Beck, at least, has done something. So, while he still wants them to be deported, he is acting with some compassion. (Though I have to admit… I’m still suspicious that he made such a big show of it so that he could write articles like this and take the “moral high ground” instead of constructing an actual counterargument. I hope I’m wrong!)

How am I to know what everyone else does, if’n they don’t reveal it themselves like he did– not for me to assume. And hourly or salary has zero bearing on the debate– as in either case, it is still unproductive activity on the employer’s dime. If you ran Tridico Signs, or any business, I guarantee you that your “principles” and “values” wouldn’t approve of an employee doing the same.

    There have been a number of people that have been working quietly to have the “real” children placed into foster families. Many of these families are more “TEA Party” types and religious conservatives than leftists and leeches. It would be best in the LONG RUN for there to be families that are willing to raise the children than to “warehouse” them with “government takers”

    There are others that have tried to provide for the corporal works of mercy. Even as they demonstrated against the policies of this Administration. Where are the Democrats? Where are the Liberal Celebrities?

    I see Americans that ARE compassionate, but know that it is not only better to have your own family raise you, but it is also better not to commit crimes, the first of which is entering illegally into this country.

    We will tend, feed, provide for their immediate needs, health and restore to health, BECAUSE WE ARE A COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE. But never mistake compassion for weakness and no resolve or backbone.

It only denies coverage for FOUR methods, which include the IUD and the morning after pill, and NONE of those methods are utilized for anything other than preventing pregnancy.

    This is hardly King’s maiden voyage in running his mouth without doing any research.

    King’s novels are chock-full of some of the dumbest, most careless references to firearms that I have ever read in print. If he has any kind of research staff, it doesn’t show

    He seems to think that most revolvers have safeties, and that break-open shotguns must also be pumped. He discovered a Colt Woodsman (only available in .22 caliber) in .38 caliber (The Stand), and in Needful Things one pistol both revolves … and has a slide. Okay …. and that’s just the ones that jump quickly to mind. Somewhere I have a long list of firearms goofiness just in The Stand — impossible rates of fire, Army weapons that were obsolete decades before the period he’s writing about, etc.

    As much as I enjoy his writing — and I do — he (or his reputed staff of well-paid ghostwriters) is not really much concerned with research or accuracy of detail.

    But, considering his political persuasion, why would anyone be surprised?

It doesn’t make sense,” he said. “Books aren’t public property, and writers aren’t Enid Blyton, middle-class women indulging in a pleasant little hobby. They’ve got to make a living. Authors, booksellers and publishers need to eat. We don’t expect to go to a food library to be fed.”

    do you not have a dictionary on hand at all? Guess not, ok here goes, according to Webster: fascism is a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of a fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. Does that clear it up for you some? Can you see that Obama and many of the Democrat leaders are seeking for this country to be ran as a fascist state?? Republicans and Libertarians and many others want our country to once again stand for the rights of the individuals regardless of race, status or any other we view people. This country was founded on the rule of the people and the separation of powers in our government between branches of our federal government and between state and federal government. Remember the phrase “of the people, by the people and for the people”?

    Have I met them? No more so that you have met Aristotle, Plato, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton or any other number of historical figures whose writings are well documented yet have long passed away.
    Have I read the Bible in its original languages (Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic)? Yes as a matter of fact I have.
    If you knew how the various translations of the Bible are produced, you would know that each translation does go back to the original manuscripts and makes a direct translation (in the vernacular). With very few exceptions, there are no “translations of a translation”.
    Here is a phrase you might consider, “transitive credibility”. It means that every incident which is recorded in the Bible which can be verified against writings of that time period have been confirmed to be true in either a figurative or literal sense. There has been no incident that has been debunked or refuted by a credible source.
    This means that based on established credibility, in the absence of refuting evidence. other records listed within the Bible can reasonably be accepted to be true as well.
    As I said, you have the right to reject what the Bible says. But consider that these men saw Jesus after the Crucifixion, They recorded those meetings and maintained that it was the truth on pain of death. They were executed in gruesome and horrible ways.
    Very few groups of people willingly go to their deaths for something that they know to be untrue.

    The separation of Church and State actually appears in a letter from Thomas Jefferson trying to explain the Establishment clause of the First Amendment. It actually does not specifically say in the Constitution there is to be no religion ‘in’ government. It is rather interpreted to mean that Government has no hand in the establishment of a State sponsored religion that excludes or controls the practice of a single faith over any other.

    Tell you what, Stephen, we’ll send about 500 lice infested, TB tested kids to your home, okay? You want them here…you think they have a right to be here? You take them in and take responsibility for them. It’s time for the gated-mansion crowd to put up or shut up.

  • ken.

    democrats run the colleges, those democrats demand outrages high salaries, benefits and pensions. they are the ones who made college costs so high, to not educate but indoctrinate. most college kids are idiots.

    I’m from Maine. King is a really public figure. He’s out and about all the time. I can assure you on a summer like we’ve had this year, he is most definitely chillin’ here in Maine. It’s been amazing.

  • Mike

    He does pay income tax here. He also demands that every film made from one of his books has to employ a certain percentage of Mainers and be filmed here in Maine to bring money to our economy. He’s got some misguided views and opinions, but he’s really not a bad guy and has been extremely charitable to our communities. He even attends the high school basketball tournaments. Sits in with the crowd. Oh, and that fenced off Mansion he lives in? It’s usually wide open and even open to the public on Halloween for trick-or-treaters. Remember guys, Glenn doesn’t want us to be more divisive he wants us to be uniting in the face of divisiveness and reaching out to people who disagree with us to find common ground. This is a great opportunity to do it in high profile.

  • Mike

    They are already sending them here to Maine. Our Tea Party governor voiced his opposition to it and complained about not being notified by the Feds. Do you have a Tea Party governor in your state? How did Liberal Maine elect a Tea Party governor? Maybe we’re not so Liberal? Steven King has some misguided views, but Stacey is right, he is a very charitable individual and does a great deal for our communities and our economy. I think we just need to show Mr. King that we may disagree on certain issues, but we do have common ground as Americans.

  • Mike

    That’s a horrible idea. Maine is not as Liberal as you guys think!

  • Mike

    When I was a boy, TNA meant something totally different.

  • Mike

    Haha. I was thinking that myself. Our winters are either cold or not that bad. There’s no other rating. She is right about King though, he is a very charitable guy and active in our communities. He’s not a closed off mansion-dweller. He attends many events among the general public, not like some VIP, even though he could if he wanted. Misguided as he is, he’s still got a good heart. Remember our common ground guys.

  • Mike

    Well, since the Feds have already started to send them here, it now means the Central American ones too.

  • Mike

    That’s a load. I’ve seen him several times at the Cinema near the mall. I’ve seen him at the state high school basketball tourneys. He’s out and about, a little less since he was run over by a crazed fan, but he’s still around. When I was young it was very common to see him, and his home was open to the public on Halloween for trick-or-treaters. His children went to school here in our schools. He’s really not a bad dude. He even went to college at University of Maine. He’s just got some whacked out and ignorant views is all.

  • Mike

    Who hasn’t?

  • Mike

    “There are six things that the LORD strongly dislikes, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.”

    -Proverbs 6:16-19

  • Mike

    Those are laws for the Levitical priesthood.

  • Mike

    Then it’s lying. Is not lying evil? Is not slander evil? Is not attempting to destroy another human being’s life through lies evil? If you answered no to any of those questions, maybe that just illustrates the need for God in your life.

  • Mike

    Nah it’s less than that ;)

  • Mike

    Are you?

  • Mike

    Albert Einstein, John F Kennedy, Benjamin Franklin, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemmingway, John Keats, John Irving, Jane Austen, Winston Churchill, Leonardo Di Vinci, Agatha Christie, and Y.B. Yeats could not spell. Pouncing upon someone for a simple spelling mistake, and just mixing up a homophone at that, is a sure sign that you are of small mind and of little consequence.

  • Emond

    Send them all to Kings home town in Maine

  • Emond

    Send all the 14 to 17 year old males with gang tattoos to Stephen Kings home. See how he likes it

    I didn’t see King scoop up any children and cart them over to his Maine mansion, did you?

  • solos42

    teaparty and Christians are in good company, remember, King also insulted the military.
    Stephen King, If You Don’t Get An Education Your’ll Wine Up In The Army ” in other words, just another liberal Mainer

  • Jeff

    Yeah Maureen, because college educated people never make typos…especially given I wrote “here” in the preceding sentence. But, thanks for adding intelligently to the conversation. Always love me some grammar & spelling Nazis.

  • DD

    It is really nice that he helps out around “his” neighborhood! However, what has he done for the rest of the country–more specifically, the immigration problem? He has made his nasty statements, now he needs to show how really good he is. He needs to open the mansion of his and start housing these illegals he is so fond of living far-far away from! You can help him babysit them.

  • DD

    Stephen King, now that you have reared your head up and spewed–how many of these illegals will you be housing, feeding, and providing medical care for? Judging by the size of you mansion, you should be able to comfortably house a couple of hundred in there. The cots really do not take up much space. Being a charitable man, letting the world know what you think of terrible Christians, it should not be a problem for you to provide the cross country transportation for them either. I cannot wait to see the article announcing how many illegals you have moved into your mansion!

  • DD

    Stephen King has a huge mansion in Maine; he should show the world what a charitable man he is by housing and caring for a few hundred illegals in his home! It is only one of several homes he owns. Haven’t heard that he has sent them any food, supplies, or even visited the border area; now that he has “spoken” he needs to stand up and do his part. Giving little goodies to the kids around his neighborhood does not impress.

  • DD

    Will you please keep him humored enough so that he keeps his “whacked out and ignorant views” in the town he contributes too?

  • Kathy Armstrong

    Thank you folks for showing up the hypocracy that simply oozzes out of the pores of the creature known as a liberal.

    Glad I read this before I bought his new book. Too many good authors out there to waste my money on somebody like King who hates Christians.

  • Alexander Anderson

    I don’t understand why everyone is bashing the man, everyone is entitled to their opinion. This is a free country, is it not? So why all the hate ok so he disagrees with people and they dissagree with him big woop just because he is a celebrity

  • Conrad Harney

    umm no, as a gay man, i support Beck- and denounce our Shameful UnAmerican President and Im from Washington, actually 30% of the gay population vote for the GOP You should get your facts STRAIGHT Kathryn – ppl like you cause problems by spreading stupidity- which ends up bing Un American ! OH God Please protect the JEWS- Amen

  • Conrad Harney

    that not true, the old testament, state not to eat these foods, because they are unclean, not health wise, alone, but other factors. The New testament only includes all things to be forgiven due to Jesus coming and Passing for MANS sins, hence, even the Gay man is just as saved as a pastor, or the fist black president- point is faith we forget that part, therefore we end, up attacking what we do not like, for say… the Gay community, but if Jesus was here, he would not go to the Christian he would go to the NON christian – not to judge- but to do the Very thing the Christians DID NOT do, love!

    Are you talking about King bashing Beck?!?! …………..I’m sure that you are!

  • Anonymous

    You have a modicum of common sense, what are you doing hanging out with these nuts? As for his “wacked out and ignorant views” first, they reflect the majority of the country and secondly why isn’t the country big enough anymore for everyone to live and believe as they choose? Having conservative or liberal views isn’t a crime unless you are trying to force them on others and no giving everyone the same rights as the constitution says isn’t forcing anything on you. This extreme polarization and hate was created and funded by the Kochs. Maybe we could all at once put down our weapons and go back to our lives or we can continue destroying the country for them so they can rape and pillage the planet and our system of government. Our choice.

    You should really go slap yourself repeatedly, it would have the same effect. I’m kind of ashamed of you actually. And 30%, math must not be your strong suit. I’m gay myself and I’ve probably met ten gay republicans since I came out in 1978. They are few and far between and dangerous to their own kind. Traitors and fools.

    Since you obviously don’t know what fascism is, here is the definition:

    —dictatorial movement: any movement, ideology, or attitude that favors dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, and repression of all opposition

    If anything, that sounds like your King Obama. And you’re right, it has been coming our way, to the detriment of the country.

    Sounds like a nice place he lives in. I think he needs a few immigrant teenagers (95% of the illegal “children” are teens) to come live with him. That would be very charitable of him. I believe he is in the 1% crowd. He can afford it better than the southern border states. He can take them to one of those basketball tournaments.

    No country on earth has ever opened up their borders unreservedly to the entire world and said “Come on it and have all our stuff!” That’s completely nuts and anyone who doesn’t get that is seriously deluded.

    King is merely another radicalized leftist hypocrite. I have nowhere near the means he does, yet my wife and I have abopted two children from another country, and brought them here through the legal immigration process. There is a process for this people; it’s hard…life is hard. It’s easy for libs to hide behind electronics and spew hate for Tea Party groups and Christians, but it’s hard to fight for liberty through a process, and Christianity.

    Just because Stephen King wrote a book, doesn’t make him better. I’m sorry, but that’s the dumbest reason I’ve heard as to how someone is could be better than Glenn Beck.

  • dmckendree@post.com

    Talk about ignorance? If you were down there helping and feeding the refugees then he wasn’t talking to you. That should be evident to anyone. He was referring to the so called Christians that were screaming at the kids, protesting and yelling at them to go home. Don’t blame him for the feelings of guilt you may or may not have for your affiliation with the party that does do those things. Sorry that you feel you were painted with a big brush but that sounds like a personal issue you should deal with or find a more compassionate group to associate with.
