Inn Again

Week of August 13, 2003

And let's be honest: If D.C. had not been so public about his faith, we would not have seen anything printed about his financial difficulties in your paper. Does this mean we can hope to see more dirt on other local radio and TV personalities? Because I'm inclined to believe that there are far more scandalous and salacious stories than this one. The intent of your article was not to inform; it was mean-spirited and intended to discredit D.C.'s faith. Shame on you!

Who should be ashamed: D.C.'s problems originate from delusions of grandeur or some sort of addiction. I am sure you media-types will crawl on your belly like a reptile to uncover the real problem, issue or fault. The Bible states that you, me, D.C., George Bush, Condoleeza Rice, Osama bin Laden, the Reverend Al Sharpton, the Reverend Larry Rice and U.S. Senators Trent Lott and Rick Santorum are all the same. It's a level playing field when we're all sinners. Just because D.C. claims to be a born-again Christian does not change the fact that he is a human being. Maybe not as evolved as me and my tree-hugging friends, but human nonetheless. Therefore, D.C.'s "problems" have nothing to do with Christianity, and shame on you, RFT, for making the inference.
