    None of us have time for being challenged to provide your laundry list. This Pope was defending pedophile priests during his first week. Now that you have heard me say it, you'll hear and read it for yourself with little effort.

    The "Nun revolution" is certainly something sweeping the Country and religion. Try yesterday's 60 minutes, all straightforward interviews.

    No connection was made by me between the Nuns and pedophile priests. I'll use separate paragraphs for everyone's pleasure in the future.

    Just an abomination, in the same breath that wearing linen and wool (picture TV evangelist in shirt and wool suit) and planting your field with mingled seed (picture flower garden or vegetable patch) are also abominations. The three are mentioned in unison, and the Christo-Hypocrites, hating the "sinners," can easily consider two of them in an historical context (silly today) but not the third one.

    Patently ridiculous, and merely hiding bigotry behind religion.

    And of course Christians, in particular Catholics do such a fantastic job at that.

    Oh wait.

    Isn't "hating" pretty much un-christian?

    Quite a major difference between "hate" and "not forgiving".

    Isn't there?

    And forgiving the sinner means not "crucifying" the person.

    And I guarantee that the VAST majority of straight people are just as big-a sinner as any gay person is.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    And that's wrong. But on this issue, he was close to being right. Besides, who needs God more than terrible sinners?

    Actually, the point is that most people who scream at others are attacking the mote in someone else's eye, while ignoring the beam in their own eye.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
