Scuffles mar Orthodox Easter in Jerusalem
Youch. Well, try looking at it this way. It's like the Pope said to Napoleon when he threatened to destroy the Catholic Church - our own people haven't managed to do it, so I don't think you can. The thing to look at here is that the Holy Fire appeared to the Orthodox, as always, in spite of everything. Glory to God. Plus, thousands of people came, which can't be said of the event described in the story linked below.

More evidence that modern-day heretical dissent is a game of the old and is on the wane:

In Boston, a city famous for its huge Catholic population. Apparently this is only a burning issue for a few mostly ageing cranks.

Marketing effort by implantable chip-maker
They are trying to sell the idea of implantable ID chips for people, including measuring temperature (an interesting idea for a time of plague) .... but ADSX stock remains at a small fraction of its price in the late 1990s.

The ‘messianic’ vision of Bush and his administration
Just what the world needs - another Protestant do-gooder mucking things up. The same mindset that brought you the British Empire, the genocide of the American Indians and Prohibition. World empire sugarcoated with religiosity and 'good intentions'.
