We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Pat Robertson opened his mouth again. When the city of Dover, Pennsylvania voted their school board out for supporting "Intelligent Design," Robertson had a stern rebuke.
"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God. You just rejected him from your city," Robertson said on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club."
The constitution never mentions God. It say we are a nation governed by the people. Our founding fathers left that part out because they knew how divisive an issue religion could be. Our government, a civil institution, is granted power by the governed, not from a higher being. All governments of man are that way.
I believe in the theory of evolution because it's based on rationalized observations. Intelligent design is based on faith. The two issues are mutually exclusive. For all we know, evolution IS the intelligent design. I believe all people have a right to speak but I sure wish Pat Robertson would just shut his mouth.

Funny, innit, that a church in California has an antiwar sermon re Iraq and gets its tax status IRS-investigated for "political activities"; but Pat "Punditry for Jesus" Robertson can call for the assassination of foriegn leaders and rebuke schoolboards for their votes, and he's sacrosanct?
Very Orwellian - "some are more equal than others"

I just wish more "Christians" would follow in the steps of Jimmy Carter, and Publicly & Loudly seperate themselves from these "Tartuffian" Christians.
Damn it! Isn't it about time for someone to re-make a big screen version of "Tartuffe" a'la the "Romeo & Juliette" remake of a few years back. Set it in DC with the nobles as Congress critters and Tartuff as.. well, think we can find a Pat Robertson Look-alike?
Since most of America can only take Politics via Info-tainment or things such as 'The West Wing", maybe we should try to put the ideas in a format they can handle.
