Conservative institutions cannot afford any association with this kind of language or attack. The issues are far too serious to be treated in this manner, and the very convictions Ann Coulter often defends are now sullied by association with her.Of course, we might also think about the effects that alliance with folks like Coulter have on our ability to witness to the gospel and reflect an accurate picture of Christ.

Kudos to Al Mohler for publicly repudiating the antics of a cobelligerent. Enough leaders of the religious right have made themselves and their loose conglomeration of supporters look quite silly over the years that this public rebuke is rather refreshing. As Molher suggests, short-term alliances aren't worth the long-term credibility that is undermined by toleration of such crass abrasiveness.
