America - can we wait?
The greatest void in America right now, from a corporate level and a political level, is stand-up, stand-strong, and stand-firm patriotic leadership. That's what we need ... but will we get it in time?
The liberal left continues its hypocritical assault on celebrity chef Paula Deen, and a Christian commentator questions if that verbal assault includes biblical views, too.
"Paula Deen was hammered for being racist because being racist is hateful," says Todd Friel, host of "Wretched TV" and "Wretched Radio."
"If Christians will now state homosexuality is sinful, which is being equated with hate, will we be treated the same way that Paula Deen has been treated?" Friel asks.
A former manager of one of Deen's restaurants recently filed a harassment lawsuit against the popular chef, and during the deposition Deen admitted uttering the "N-word" 30 years ago.
The Food Network and corporations, including Target, Sears and Wal-Mart, have abandoned their sponsoring partnerships with Deen.
"I don't have an axe to grind with Paula Deen," says Friel. "She said she is sorry. She doesn't need to apologize to me. If she said she is contrite, I believe it. I accept it and we move on."
But Friel says the "liberal left" is still insisting that Deen "can't be forgiven" for what she did.
"She should lose her contracts. She should lose her job, and she should lose her reputation for something she said 30 years ago," Friel, paraphrasing the left, says.
Random House's Ballantine Books released a statement on Friday, saying it would not release Deen's forthcoming cookbook as well as four other cookbooks the chef had been contracted to write.
While many corporations cut and run, already 283,000 fans have "liked" a Facebook page called "We Support Paula Deen."
