Losing credibility: they have no one to blame but themselves. Science properly done is always credible, if not always absolutely correct.
Wards of the State riot against Nanny in Greece as French and German E.U. Super Nannies tell their Greek wards to make financially responsible decisions.
Pledge of Allegiance is constitutional. Go figure. Remember the important question to ask when you hear people complain about the civil use of "God": "OK. You're offended. But have you been harmed?" We do not enjoy the right not to be offended.
How Marx got it wrong: BXVI on the failure of socialism.
I'm 100% in favor of having women play a greater role in the decision-making of the Church. However, no one should be deluded into thinking that More Women = Better Decisions. American university faculties are dominated by women. The LCWR is a women-only group. The E.U. machine has lots of women working in prominent positions. Liberal Protestant churches are top-heavy with women leaders. None of these institutions can lay claim to being "more perfect" simply b/c women have a greater role in the decision-making process. IOW, women are as prone to the temptations of the Devil as men are. . .sin knows no gender bias.
God, the Heavy Stone, and a Mistaken Notion of "Almighty."
My new fav show: Caprica. If you want a dramatic rendition of the problems faced by philosophers of science and religion, this show is for you: mind vs. body, real world vs. virtual world, polytheist culture vs. monotheist insurgency, theocratic inculturation, ethics of technology, nature of personhood, etc. Good stuff.
