Thou shalt not kill...


This is why the idea of a "Christian Right" is an oxymorn. You cannot be rooted in the precepts of capitalism and possessive individualism and be Christian at once. This is why Jesus threw the moneychangers from the temple. There is confusion in this world; a notion that because those on the left do not genuflect in medieval fashion before icons and abstractions they are less Christian. But only a politics of community and true compassion that leaves us dependent upon one another can save us from one another.  Posted by Picasa

Hey scribe.... we didn't have tv for 8 months.... (snow storm knocked the dish off the barn last Jan.) and so finally a couple a weeks back we get an appt. with another company and they hook up a new sat. dish (and I was happy with out TV but my wife likes "Lost" & maybe the Jets can do something this season) so the first night about 10:30 pm or so I figure.. O.K. lets take a look...
and I turn on tv to a news show.. with a little Alfred E. Newman guy... doing the news.... and he looks sorta like a cross between George Bush & Ted Koppel... I could'nt quite place him.... and there is a big 700 behind him... I wasn't sure what show it was but it seemed like the news & then he starts talking about how we should assasinate a foreign leader and I said to myself.. "wow tv has changed alot in 8 months..."

Not just tv, but Christianity itself. What's your e-mail Darren?
