When I see a picture of a member of our military who has been killed, I read his or her name very carefully. Sometimes I cry. President Bush read the piece … [Read more...]

Post-Shutdown the Evangelical Movement Is Going to Die Faster Than Ever — GOOD!– Now Actual Christianity Might Have a Chance to Flourish
The 2 weeks of shutdown madness has accelerated evangelical movement’s devolution by 10 years or more. The shutdown is to the evangelical establishment what that fabled 4-hour erection is to Viagra users.I predict that the unwinding of the loony literalistic evangelical “Bible-believing” movement, made respectable by people like Billy Graham and Christianity Today magazine, just took a quantum leap. American evangelicals are looking into a grim future where they’re both loathed and feared. Th … [Read more...]

America was just attacked by forces far greater than anything Osama bin Laden or Al Qaeda could ever have mustered. Maybe we can respond with the Navy SEALs or a drone attack. No doubt the proper response will be to bomb the Atlantic Ocean or at least Iran into submission.Gov. Cuomo of New York State said, " don’t call it ‘global warming’ because you trigger a whole political debate."
