George Bush never tried to disown 9/11 or Richard Reid. He never tried to say, “hey, it was Clinton’s problem.” Sure, in fact, a lot of what led to 9/11 happened on Bill Clinton’s watch and he failed in most every measure to shut down Al Qaeda.
“His White House recognised its political vulnerability more readily than it comprehended the level of danger faced by Americans.”
. . . And the strategy of blaming Bush for being weak on terror will not work after eight years of blaming Bush for being too bloodthirsty.
Unions should be outlawed for government workers. Period.
Spong is still wrong — “Bishop” John Shelby Spong says he won’t debate whether homosexuality is a sin anymore. If he would take off the collar and stop parading as a Bishop and a Christian I’d just write him off as another uninformed non-believer. As it is, he is a hypocrite and a fake. And not much of a clear thinker, either. Gee, a public declaration not to debate the issue you brought up. How brave. Just claim victory, demonize your opponents with the silly homophobe label and move on. Pathetic.
Spong is what happens when denominations don’t exercise church discipline. He should have been booted out years ago, or perhaps never ordained. Christianity is not his forte’.
Mark Tooley at the IRD (Institute of Religion and Democracy) had a great re-cap of the shenanigans of the Religious Left at the Copenhagen climate summit. These people draw the wrong conclusions from the wrong facts.
The Global Warming cause opportunistically allows the Religious Left to collapse all its favored causes into one issue: hostility to free markets and economic growth; cravings for wealth redistribution; Western guilt; veneration for the earth at the expense of humanity; and aspirations for global governance. And despite Religious Left claims about concern for the poor, shutting down or restricting the global economy would hurt the very poor the most. Draconian carbon reductions would keep poor people poor, and the rest of us stagnant, less able to help others in need. What’s compassionate about that?
Brit Hume was right. Tiger needs Jesus more than he needs anything else.
