God doesn't poll people in order to determine what is morally right &just. He certainly doesn't ask the media. And He doesn't ask you. Or me. Sometimes you just say what you believe w/ your heart &let the chips fall where they may. That may not be true in the Globe newsroom. Certainly never at the New York Times. Perhaps that's why that word "extreme" has become a media frisbee, tossed w/ ease ®ularity.
