Over at the Asbury Park Press website, they encourage folks to have their own blog there. Once you are a part of their Gannett standard cookie cutter site, your blog posts can appear on various pages of the Press' website.
Including the front page.
So this morning on the front page I saw a provocative headline called "Christ Killers." "Wow," I thought. This looks bad from the start. Is the Press really going to let some nut be crazy bigoted right on their front page?
Yea. Turns out that's what they did.
I clicked on the link and it was a blog post by some prejudiced loser.
On his page is the blogger's description of himself. Then he answers the question "What I love to do on weekends."
Now, I want you to look at his description of himself, compare that to what he likes to do on the weekends, and tell me if you fell on the floor laughing at the irony as I did.
Here is how he describes himself:
"I am a Arab American born in this country.. I support the destruction of the state of Israel and re-creation of Palestine. I do not believe in the Holocust [sic] which I think is grossly overexposed and untrue. I am a college graduate and will not be swayed by the Jewish controlled press."
Now here is what he likes to do on the weekends:
Go to church.
Hey pal, try paying attention to the words of Jesus (the Jew) next time you're spending time in the pew.
