File under: Culture War!

Our faith has always been in direct conflict with the values of the world. We are, after all, a society that provides abortion on demand, has killed millions of innocent children, degrades the institution of marriage and all but treats Christianity like some second-rate superstition.
Well, that's clearly untrue. It's a first-rate superstition.

But we do treat those who want to force their beliefs onto others like second-class citizens. Thom, believe anything you want. Justify it to yourself anyway you want. But when you want to start legislating what your bearded pal in the sky tells you, then you've got trouble. (Of course, it's not what the bearded guy says at all, it's what some sweatty preacher tells you He said. But the man with the nice suit and the nice haircut wouldn't lie, would he?)

Speaking of the sweatty guy in the nice suit, The Reverend State Senator James Meeks is daring the citizens of Illinois to beg him to run for governor. I happened to be watching his preaching on TV one Sunday morning. This guy is a hack, an arrogant, power hungry panderer of the lowest kind. Isn't there some rule about political language and tax exempt church organizations?

(This is funny. Couldn't they come up with any better pictures than a water tower and a train? (I can't identify the rest. The school might be Bloom Township.))
