A vehicle for venting on philosophy, religion, and the general state of things. Proprietor: C. W. Powell

Wheat and Chaff: "It seems to me that one thing that weakens the social conservatives' viewpoint to a considerable degree (and I am one, BTW), is that religion is just too involved in their presentation of issues. Now before anyone blows a gasket, note that I said it's too involved in the presentation of issues, not the formulation of issues. Religion has a great deal to do with the source of everyone's viewpoints, but if the religious language is the only way one knows how to communicate that viewpoint, then one will be relegated to preaching to the choir, and nobody else will care what one has to say."
