Knoxville Pastor Seeks Answers From Michael Savage, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity

Reported by Deborah - August 6, 2008 -

In the first interview since the tragic shooting in Knoxville, Tennessee on July 27, Rev. Chris Buice, searching for understanding, wonders if any clues can be found in the writings of Michael Savage, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity since their books are considered part of the evidence.

Rev. Buice makes these astute observations about the power of language in today's interview published in the Knoxville News Sentinel.

"The words you choose may be the difference between war and peace," said Buice, speaking to a belief in the power of "dehumanizing language."

"I believe in rigorous debate," he said. "But what's the difference between a political opponent and a cockroach? You stomp a cockroach. You debate a political opponent. I believe, if you truly listen to your opponent, it will make you better."
