Catholic caveat emptor

Starving for Attention

The Catholic Church is a private organization protected by the First Amendment. Mr. Vugt knew the policies of the Catholic Church. If he doesn’t want to abide by them, he has the freedom to go work somewhere else. Everyone has the right to live his life the way he chooses as long as he doesn’t violate the right of others to do the same. By contrast, the Catholic Church shouldn’t get any funding from the government because it’s unconstitutional. Only free people with the power to make their best moral decision can create the kind of harmonious, tolerant society we all want.

In defense of freedom,

A truly frightening poll

Halloween Poll

In your poll about which scares me the most, I could not find these: President Gore or President Bradley. Massive diversity training anyone? Democratic majority? Sweet Jesus! I have to lie down.

Joe Brennan



Your poll asked what scares me the most, and the first four are so scary that there is no way to decide which is the most frightening. However, if the efforts to reform campaign finance became a demand by the public to finance the elections and cut out the corporations and defense-industrial complex, I truly believe the other scary things would disappear.
