Easter, the Day When We Celebrate…the Something…Blargle…of Jesus

This is the final paragraph and correction end-note of an article published about Pope Francis by the New York Times. I am not making it up. Easter is the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection from the dead, three days after he was crucified, the premise for the Christian belief in an everlasting life. In urging peace, […]

Oh, William Saletan, you are so close. Just drop the blinding stupidity of political correctness and you’ll be able to write what you should write with real boldness. Dear Muslims, Christians, Hindus, and Jews, You’re living in the age of the Internet. Your religion will be mocked, and the mockery will find its way to […]

Put me in the same camp as Stacy McCain. Some readers may wonder why I haven’t published anything about the battle over mandatory contraceptive coverage under ObamaCare. Basically, it’s because every time I try to do it, I tend to write a couple of thousand words before discarding the draft. How in the world can I […]

If I held any regard at all for Pat Robertson before today, I hold none now after he told his vast television audience that people with Alzheimer’s are “kind of dead”. “I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure […]

On Thursday, outgoing executive editor of the New York Times Bill Keller wrote one of the most proudly ignorant columns I have ever had the misfortune to read on the subject of religion and politics. In it, he strongly intimated that Presidential candidates — Republican Presidential candidates, actually, since he obviously didn’t feel that “God […]

Over the past few years, we’ve seen several incidents where violent Muslim protests over relatively minor slights earned big government and corporate concessions. Death threats over a few cartoons of Mohammed caused media outlets all over the world to censor themselves in ways that they would never have done otherwise. Muslims have murdered people because […]

What a blazing hypocrite. With nothing else working, President Barack Obama is asking religious leaders to help him sell the public on health care reform. POLITICO listened in to an Oval Office conference call Tuesday, where Obama and top administration officials, beseeched thousands of faith-based and community organizations to preach the gospel on new insurance […]
