Don Imus’s comments about the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers University were no surprise. But they were a new low.

NCAA, Rutgers women's coach blast Imus Talk show host apologizes for calling NCAA runners-up 'nappy-headed hos'

Comments: I deplore racist degrading talk like this! Understanding that every human being is created in the likeness of God demands that Christians stand opposed to this Neanderthal, meathead, and God-dishonoring talk!

James 3 has instructions about language that honors and dishonors Christ

My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.

Christians must (in our salt function) decry and condemn such talk! (If I called a coworker what Imus called these young ladies ... I would be fired! No second chance.). He should be fired and I hope that he is! (For the record - I've never watched or listened to Don Imus and I never will!)
