CT Article on the Blessed Mother

CT finally put the cover story I blogged about here on their website.
The Morally and Intellectually Impoverished Media

Matt Lauer of the Today show effectively blames Ronald Reagan and Jerry Falwell for the stroke that Hugh Hefner, poster boy for abortion, teenage pregnancies, venereal diseases and every other negative consequence of sexual impurity and immodesty, suffered in the '80's. What a punk.
When Islam and Judaism Aren't Religions

A Catholic mom sues a school district for not allowing her kids' nativity scene to be part of a Christmas display that included a menorah and an Islamic star and crescent.

While school officials wouldn't discuss the lawsuit, legal briefs filed said it has "drawn an appropriate line between secular holiday decorations and those that are purely religious."

The New York Civil Liberties Union agreed: "The Constitution prohibits government from promoting religion, any religion, and that means that public schools can be in the business of promoting religion," Donna Lieberman of the NYCLU said.

More proof of ACLU stupidity and bigotry.

BTW, I think the writer of the article meant to write "can't" in the last sentence quoted above.

Brownshirt Lawyers

The ACLU demands a school district superintendent be investigated for allowing a local minister to dress up like Santa Clause and discuss the meaning of Christmas with students.

"I think this superintendent doesn't understand the separation of church and state," said Mary Davidson, president of the Douglas County chapter of ACLU. "He should see the error of his ways and repent."

[Uncharitable Alert] What an idiotic and condescending bee-och! First of all, I challenge anyone to point out to me where in the Constitution it says "separation of church and state." Try in the same place where it says "right to privacy" -- nowhere. Secondly, what exactly in the following statements from the Supreme Court doesn't Ms. Davidson understand:

"Our prior holdings do not call for total separation between church and state; total separation is not possible in an absolute sense." Lemon v. Kurtzman, 403 U.S. 602, 614 (1971)

"[the wall of separation] metaphor…is not a wholly accurate description of the practical aspects of the relationship that in fact exists between church and state." Lynch v. Donnelly, 465 U.S. 668, 673 (1984)

Lastly, Ms. Davidson's insipid remark about the school district superintendent repenting just reflects how much of a fundamentalist zealot she is in her hostility to Christians and Christianity. God have mercy on her and the Molochian organization she serves.

Lingering Remnants of Anti-Catholic Gray Davis

Oral arguments are set for tomorrow in Catholic Charities' challenge to a state law which requires them and like agencies to include contraception in employee health benefits.

The arguments by the state that Catholic Charities is a secular institution because it serves non-Catholics is stupid. On the other hand, since I understand a lot of Catholic Charities publicly distribute things like condoms, I think it's a little disingenuous for them to say that because they have the word "Catholic" in their name, they are a religious institution that should be exempt from a clearly anti-Catholic law.
Separated at Birth?

The guy on the left, of course, is country singer Glen Campbell after his recent arrest for assault and driving under the influence, while the guy on the right is convicted rapist and murderer Warren Summerlin, whose death sentence case was just accepted for review by the SCOTUS.
