Wards of the French Nanny State throw violent temper tantrums. Poor things are being told that they have to work until they are 62! Evil, evil Nanny State. And now, they don't even get all those tourist dollars/euros/pounds/sheckels. That should help the economy.
Speaking of tantrums. . .Pelosi's flying monkeys in the House are dousing any fantasy she may have had about being Speaker again.
The Anchoress on "The Credentialed Gentry and the Unpersuaded Yahoo." This puts me in a terrible bind. I'm a member of both the credentialed gentry AND an unpersuaded yahoo. Oops. I'm pretty sure the other members of the CredGen would kick me out if they could.
Excellent article on how materialists fundamentally misunderstand the notion of free will. Take time to read the whole thing.
Damien Thompson wonders: "Is this the start of a civil war in the Church of England?"
Now we're talkin'! Catholic pub opens in Rome
WaPo and the AP completely rewrite their O'Donnell Church and State story w/o issuing a correcction. Predictably, the lefties wanted to hear her deny that there is a "wall between church and state," so when she asked her opponent if such a thing is found in the 1st Amendment, they jumped on her like a pack of rabid Credentialed Gentry hunting a wounded Yahoo.
Prof. Jacobson fisks the original story for all he's worth. Also, how did that wall btw church and state get there in the first place? Interesting back story that includes the KKK!
More race-hustling from the NAACP. BTW, the link has a list of links to all the black GOP and Tea Party backed candidates running for office in the mid-term elections. For a bunch of racists they should do have a lot of black folks on their side.
Explaining what happened to Vatican Two btw 1965-85. Good article. In seminary we were told over and over again that the published documents were products of a liberal majority that (mistakenly) felt the need to compromise with reactionary factions. Therefore, any "traditional language" could be dismissed b/c it was in the document only as a way of appeasing the ecclesial neanderthals. Fortunately, none of us bought this ruse. . .but we kept our mouths shut just in case speaking up against the prof turned into a "formation issue."
