Preparing for Richard Dawkins’ Crocodile Tears


Recently, while watching the news, I wondered, “Why do teary atheists hate Catholics so much?” Then, I said a quiet prayer for their victims.

And then [...]

Why Obama’s Transparency Promise Is So Hard to Keep


By now, “Barack Obama Breaks Campaign Promise” is one of the least surprising headlines one expects to see.  But for those just tuning in to the brave new world of Hope & Change, today we’ve got yet another pledge that was apparently not to be.
