Equating Cathy's position with Page's or Breivik's trivializes the concept of hate, blunts and diffuses its meaning. Put a pinch too much salt on a boiled egg and even the little bit bites. Diffuse the same pinch on the Pacific Ocean and the salt loses its saltiness, to paraphrase Jesus.39 comments
The mayor donned priestly regalia – in spirit if not physically – when he declared his outrage over the support for traditional marriage voiced by Chick-fil-A's president, Dan Cathy.

Though Penn State may be able to take down the Paterno icon, it may never be able to rid itself of the Sandusky statue. It is the largest sculpture on the Penn State Campus.

"This is such a dark place." The irony stopped me in my tracks. The speaker was Jonas Kouassi-Zessia, an African émigré to Europe who had planted a church there. In the 19th and 20th centuries Europe – and America – was sending missionaries to Africa. Europeans and Americans referred to Africa as the "Dark Continent."
"Scientists could soon be able to routinely screen unborn babies for thousands of genetic conditions, raising concern the breakthrough could lead to more abortions," said a June 6 headline in The Telegraph, a British newspaper.
Despite California, despite the euro zone, despite the rusting socialist hulks littering the historic landscape, the Obama Administration works feverishly to turn the whole of the United States into Eurofornia.
The defeat last week of Senator Richard Lugar (R-Ind) in the Indiana GOP primary sends the ominous rumble of war drums out across the political landscape. No doubt the scary reverberations have reached as far as Utah, and the ears of another Republican, Senator Orrin Hatch.1 comments
"If Congress refuses to act… I'll continue to do everything in my power to act without them," the President of the United States said recently. The "power" to which the President referred was that of issuing executive orders, given in Article II, Sections 1 and 3 of the Constitution.2 comments
Hell is not a virtual world. Anders Behring Breivik proved it on July 22, 2011 when he slaughtered 77 people in Norway. On that summer day last year, Breivik pulled onscreen hellishness into the world of space, matter, and time. Last Thursday, in testimony at his trial, Breivik told of how he brought shocking virtual gore into horrible reality.2 comments
