Have fundamentalist Christians really become so desperate for fresh hatreds that they're reduced to boycotting JCPenney for hiring a wildly popular talk show host with a magnificent talent for marketing who just happens to joke and cavort with elves?
As Ellen DeGeneres revealed on her TV program a few months back, "I stand for honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need." Such sentiments aren't normally regarded as a grave menace to moral America when they proceed from the lips of an "upstanding" Christian woman. Why, then, should they be condemned when they come from an elf-lover--from a seemingly very nice lady who was simply born to love elves?
I don't get it. I just don't get why some Christians, who tremble in awe of a Divine Creator's vast works, would expend any energy against one of His supremely natural ones.
