I am reminded of C.S. Lewis’ remark that there is wishful thinking in hell, as well as on earthA reader writes:For a laugh, read this old (1936) essay by Joseph McCabe, one of G.K. Chesterton’s atheist interlocutors (look in Heretics, for example). In it, we learn about “The Myth of [Soviet] Persecution” and how atheism is “SWEEPING THE WORLD” in lovely places like China. The real gems are his predictions for the future:”That Atheism has grown in the last 10… Read more

More Information Than You Require about the Anthem “Hail to the Chief”It’s Wikipedia, so take it with a grain of salt.
