Without God there can be no freedom, just license to do all that is wrong. Maybe that's why we are about to lose our entire nation to people who care not about right or wrong, while their opposition counts their money as they try to fight them without God. What is so evil about the very source of all that is good, all love, infinite truth?

A liberal reporter speaking at a conference in Georgetown recently dismissed conservative alarms about the Obama administration's mandate that forces religious institutions--like Catholic Hospitals and Evangelical colleges--to provide coverage for drugs and procedures that can abortions and that effect sterilizations. "What about the anti-Catholic Bible riots in Philadelphia in the 1840s," she asked. Those led to scores of people actually being killed. Those Bible riots were deplorable, a blot on American history. But they were not the acts of the federal government. They were lawless violence, not a deliberate policy of oppression.
