LRC picks
The Pentagon persecution of Al Lorentz
I understand that when one joins the military one voluntarily gives up some of his freedoms but heroes like Sgts Lorentz and Camilo Mejia are willing to face the consequences for telling the truth

Why Mr Bush’s faith is no comfort to the ruled

The notion that Christian faith preserves us from error does run deep among some believers.
Hoo-yah. Which reminds me of this and this.

Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven. Many will say to me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.
- Matthew vii.21-23

And not everyone who gives lip service to the magisterium is a good or even competent or reputable therapist. No wonder the gay-priest scandal happened if this was what RC priests were sent to.

From LRC’s blog
St William Clinton
Saint Clinton's (sic) image on these keepsake items will remind you of better times (about four years ago) when you had enough money to eat at a nice restaurant, get your car washed or take a day off work.
Sure, this pushes it, but I miss second-term Bill too: thanks to a Republican Congress he ended up being a good Republican president, actually doing what Ronald Reagan said he would but didn't.
