Hey! This is my hometown! Born and raised in Everett. Live about a half hour away now. Been by this courthouse a zillion times. Never knew the Ten Commandments thing was a gift of C.B. DeMille.

A reader sends along this little laundry list of nettlesome problems with the absolute assurances of WMDs we got Some of them (f’rinstance #15) seem rather petty and dumb to me. But a lot of more them are at least troubling. I’m still willing to believe we were playing connect the dots. But how long [Read More...]

Numerous Anglicans Struggling to Bring About Reign of Antichrist At least, it looks that way to me when I read this piece called “Another Liberal Movement Slowly But Surely Gains Supporters Among Episcopal, Other Anglican Bishops” at the Christian Challenge.

RadTrads Hostile to Jews? Perish the thought. Gotta love it when Enlightnment Deist Ben Franklin is hailed as though he is a Church Father as long as he provides a handy Jewish conspiracy quote.
