    Let's hope this program does more for young men than Obama does for his own brother.

    That's a pretty broad generalization, it seems to me. "Liberals" want to assault the church? Let's define "liberal" and see what examples there might be of them "assaulting the church."

    Oh so now we must define modern liberalism? Talk about moving goalposts. You're trying to shift stadium's.

    It is not possible to have a rational discussion about "liberalism" or many other political philosophies without first defining your terms. To all too many self described conservatives, "liberal" just means "anyone who disagrees with my point of view."

    "Conservative" is yet another term that has different meanings to different people.

    Is Jimmy Carter a "liberal"?

    I don't know. I thought "liberal" to you was synonymous with "statist", the philosophy that big government is the solution to problems. What that has to do with attacking "the church" I have no idea. Which church are we talking ab out here, Catholic, Baptist, Protestant in general, Jewish, what? When you post "when liberals want to scream that there is a separation between church and state, only not when they want to assault the church." makes me wonder just what you do mean.
