"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth," said Jesus extolling the virtue of humility (Matthew 5:5). "I have talent on loan from God," boasted Rush.

Limbaugh is free to spout any bigoted, mean-spirited, vitriolic and unenlightened opinions that he likes. But with the Christmas holiday coming, please do us all a favor and leave Jesus out of it.
