The Price of Papal Popularity

The issues aren't that complicated, but are obfuscated by those with an axe to grind. HOMOSEXUALITY (the inclination) is not sinful, but homosexual sodomy is. Just like adultery or fornication. Why is that so difficult to say or accept? And the Church's position on marriage is nothing more than to take the marriage vows seriously. We don't promise to love the person until we find someone we like better, or we get tired of them. It's nothing more than keeping solemn promises. And everyone is a sinner. No exceptions. Not complicated.
As a Vietnam veteral who also "pushed paper" while in a combat zone, I personally find nothing offensive about the remark. It is true enough and the voters can decide for themselves whether it is relevant to their vote.

Our Judicial Dictatorship

The One Person who had the opportunity to draw a line in the sand on this was (Governor) Mitt Romney. When the Mass Supreme Court "found" a right to gay marriage in the Mass. Constitution - and did it in a way that prevented the legislature from doing anything about it for at least two years - the Governor could have refused to abide by the court's decision. He could have declared that State employees (who worked for him) were forbidden from issuing marriage certificates to gay couples until such time as the legislature chose to act. This would/could have been fully justified by an independent analysis of the applicable provisions in the Mass. constitution. But he caved. HUGE failure to show leadership.
The older I get the more I wonder why the CSA wasn't allowed to secede in 1860. there's nothing in the Constitution to prevent it. Of course, the reason was tax revenue, but it sounds crass to admit that so many people died to maintain the finances of the Federal Government. And i suppose there was that slavery thing, but if they had promoted a war to end slavery, nobody would have showed up.
I support the Speaker fully, however I don't see how this can happen unless we modify our basic form of government to a Benevolent Dictatorship. This sort of change can never occur while half the country wants government to get out of their business and the other half want government to take care of them.

I think if Steve does more checking he will find that the more you pay for a shirt, the bigger the "Medium" tends to be. Same is true for women's clothes. They want to flatter chubby people into thinking they aren't chubby.

Why do Americans Hate America?

The Vietnam War did more to destroy respect for our country and its values than any event or person before or later. The Anti-war movement was led by socialists and America-haters generally, and a mushy-headed press guided a whole generation to the conclusion that the protesters were RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING. The war also drove many of these people into academe (to avoid the draft), where they have existed like a cultural cancer ever since.
I have been saying for years is that the best strategy to re-assert the Constitution is for someone to propose an amendment to REPEAL THE 10th AMENDMENT. It has become dead letter law, with more flaming liberals every day in the Federal judiciary. I believe that this proposed amendment would spur a lively debate in state legislatures across the country, as they are forced to confront how many of their rights and prerogatives have been usurped by Congress and the President. A Republican senate may be able to prevent some of Barry's more outrageous nominees from taking court appointments, but this is a stopgap. The Constitution, as written, needs re-invigoration.
Columns like this are why I check TOWNHALL every morning. God bless Gov. Jindal! We actually have someone who "gets it."

The pity is that so few "Americans" endorse or live up to the "American values" Dr. Williams is referring to.
