NBC Christ Kerfuffle: False Navy Seals Interview Story spread by Christians
I actually got one of these emails forwarded to me. Snopes has the rest of the story.
Of course, nothing of the sort related in the oft-forwarded email actually happened, as Snopes indicates.
I thought it would be an interesting story for LGF Pages because of the recent discussions about the “War On Christmas”. It’s the same sort of outrageous outrage spread by religious people who have no compunction about lying.
This morning on the Today Show, Matt Lauer interviewed one of the wives of one of the Navy Seals killed this weekend. He asked her what she would say to her children about their dad and how she would want them to remember him… She said, and I quote, ” His love for Christ” and then continued with a few other things… through out the day and on MSN homepage…when the story is replayed they have edited the “Love of Christ” part out…
Why? Because using the word Christ might offend someone… well I am a Christian and I am offended! Offended that they would edit it out. Offended that we as Christians are asked to tread lightly so as not to offend someone of another religion.
I think anyone who missed the original broadcast this morning should know what NBC has done. This man loved his country and loved his God and gave his life for both, just as Christ gave His life for him…
Please feel free to copy this and forward it to everyone on your email list. There are emails that go around saying ” If you believe in God” then forward this… well I am starting one right here, right now…I am not ashamed of God but I am becoming more ashamed of my country …It is time to take a stand.
Please GOD, have mercy on us and help us all.
See the Snopes link for an attempt to sort this out. There was no evidence that anything was cut or edited anywhere.
