A few gems from Rod Dreher
Why ‘as long as it’s a Wal-Mart’ doesn’t work for church

On using disabilities as an excuse
Especially when it’s ‘a transparent attempt by a very irresponsible member of an arrogant and privileged family to portray himself as a victim’

The neoconnerie as Protestants gone bad
From something bad to begin with! Sequential errors domino-ing to an endgame.

Why the religious left is a dead end
Pure sentimental mush. It has no power to bind anybody, which means it has no power to inspire. Can you imagine Martin Luther King Jr. saying, "I don't want to play the game of 'the Bible says this or that.'?" Can you imagine facing Bull Connor and the police dogs, much less Diocletian, with that bucket-of-warm-spit stuff? Come on!
