Wow, What A Tennessee Paper Calls An Offensive Word Is Absolutely Sad…
You folks probably remember the days when the only times people were offended by something is when something was presented to them where it made sense for them to be offended. Now, I am going to be traveling at some point in the next month or two for a small vacation. Just me and the family going camping for a couple of days but there is going to be a several hour drive involved. I am most assuredly running the risk of offending somebody at some point because during the trip I will be stopping into a gas station to get a cup of coffee and I just KNOW that somebody will be offended because I don’t take my coffee black.
You have to ask yourself what the heck is going on in America nowadays when the word “Christian” is considered offensive! Could it be that Tennessee has been a state targeted for a HUGE influx of Muslims? Literally THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS of Muslim “refugees” have flooded Tennessee! THERE ARE OVER 250,000 MUSLIMS IN TENNESSEE NOW!
SHELBYVILLE, TENNESSEE FLOODED WITH SOMALIS:
According to U.S. Census Data, the United States admits roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants legally each year, representing the fastest growing block of immigration into the United States. Tennessee, in fact, is home to one of the fastest growing immigrant populations in the country.
CHRISTIAN BOOKSTORE AD REJECTED
The owners of a Christian bookstore in Knoxville, Tennessee were dumbfounded after the News Sentinel rejected their ad because it included an offensive word – “Christian.”
Lois McGinnis and her family own Cedar Springs Christian Store. They recently decided to close a second location of the store so they decided to place an ad in the classified section of the newspaper, which is owned by Gannett.
The advertisement read: “Store closing sale – Cedar Springs Christian Store – Clinton Highway location – All merchandise, fixtures, slat walls must go. Sale through August 13, phone 865.947.XXX.”
Mrs. McGinnis placed the ad on July 26. It was supposed to run on July 28. But when she opened up the newspaper – the ad was nowhere to be found.
So Mrs. McGinnis phoned the newspaper and spoke with a classified ad employee.
“She said our ad did not run because it contained an offensive word,” she told me. “I asked what that offensive word was and she said the offensive word was ‘Christian.’”
She said the News Sentinel did not notify her in advance the ad had been rejected nor did they call to say they were refunding her money.
“We had no way of knowing they considered the word ‘Christian’ offensive until we tried to place this ad,” she told me.
“As Christians, this was a slap in the face to us,” she added.
