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

All of last week I was in Manitowoc for the 258th Synod of the Reformed Church in the U.S. It was a great time with some really good people. I got home to rain in Colorado Springs [Hurrah], decline in the stock market, and the same old hate Bush speech everywhere.

Typical of media bias was the report on the front page of USA Today [Wednesday, I think] which said that the beheading of Nick Berg was "retaliation" for the American brutality in Iraqi prisons. So its always our fault that they are so nasty. I suppose it was the fault of Jesus that Muslims tried to eradicate Christianity over a period of about one thousand years. [They failed, of course, as they will always fail. Can't get to Jesus on His throne in Heaven.] The Russians have a proverb for it, "Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad."

Mort Kondracke said it well: "Look at those monsters standing there five of them and they cut the guy's head off, they sawed his head off, shouting God is great. Now that is what we are dealing with, that is the kind of people who will run the world if we do not win this war on terrorism And it is being fought in Iraq and we have got to win and that is it. Full stop. There is just no losing this thing or else the world will be run by monsters." Mort Kondracke - FOX News

The French went crazy in Cannes over Michael Moore. But then, the French affection for Islam goes back at least to Francis, who allied with the Turks against Charles V. So much for Christian brotherhood. The French are the only civilized people, you know [must say it with a sniff, to get the proper effect].

Do you think that Islam has changed its desire to stable its horses in St. Peter's in Rome?
