This is the thoughts of a Daily Journal reader. I cannot link so I will repeat verbatim:
Rheta Johnson made a disgraceful remark:
Rheta Grimsley Johnson’s November 5 column went too far. Although she can say “when Wildmon boycotts, buy a bunch,” if she needs to, yet, when she called Don Wildmon “Ayatollah Wildmon” it was shameful and disgrace…………………………
I went and looked up the definition of “ayatollah” I found this in the English dictionary n : a high-ranking Shiite religious leader who is regarded as an authority on religious law and its interpretation and who has political power as well.
If you replace Shiite with Christian, I do believe Ms Johnson gave the Rev. a promotion in a backhanded manner. As a member of my site said,”This is a Girlcott” anyway.
This reminds me of a time when a lady call me an asshole for some deserving act. I replied quickly, “I am no longer an asshole I have been promoted to a whole ass”
“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”
I have no idea who said this, but I use it.
