Townhall Top Ten - Apr 29 - May 5

Posted: May 06, 2007 10:19 AM

Here's what readers were talking about during the week that was -- April 29 - May 5.

#10. Mormonism: Religion, Denomination, or Cult?
by Frank Pastore
Am I an anti-Mormon bigot for simply raising this question?

#9. Back to Bias Basics at PBS
by Brent Bozell III
The left maintains an iron grip on PBS with all the maturity and sophistication that a 4-year-old hangs on to a Happy Meal toy. The motto of its public and private campaign against Tomlinson's alleged transgressions should have been: "Mine! Mine! All Mine!"

#8. “The Senator party" vs. "The Governor party"
by Michael Medved
These differences in background reflect far more than curious coincidence: they actually illuminate some of the profound differences in the way the two parties see the purpose and nature of politics.

#7. What the deep thinkers are thinking
by Cliff May
For their May/June issue, the editors of Foreign Policy magazine asked 21 “leading thinkers” to propose ideas to “save the world” -- or, failing that, to come up with “one solution that would make the world a better place.”

#6. Tales from the School-Choice Wars
by John Stossel
Attacks from powerful unions haven't dimmed the passion of school-choice advocates. It's as if they say to themselves, "You can call us names, but we know what we are doing is morally right."

#5. The myth of Cuban health care
by Fred Thompson
The truth is that Cuban medical care has never recovered from Castro's takeover -- when the country’s health care ranked among the world's best. He won the support of the Cuban people by promising to replace Batista’s dictatorship with free elections, and to end corruption.

#4. My Conversion to the Lutheran Feminist Faith
by Mike S. Adams
It’s a sort of spiritual headquarters for the “Lutheran Feminist/Womanist Movement,” which exists to celebrate the feminine persona of the Goddess and “dimensions of the sacred as expressed in faith, worship, learning, mutual care, and acts of justice.” I assume their discussion of acts of justice omits the fate of places like “Sodom” and “Gomorrah.” Only a male God could be capable of that kind of justice.

#3. Random Thoughts
by Thomas Sowell
Sometimes it seems as if everybody is trying to rip off his own little piece of America, until we are all torn apart.

#2. Why Feminist Mommies are like Pimps
by Kevin McCullough
Feminist "mothers" are more than willing to expose their daughters to indecent and even dangerous elements. They will do so for no more of a reason than to simply make a buck. And in doing so they create an interesting comparison for traditional parents who want more than anything to simply spend time with their children. This is the ultimate debate between progressive vs. traditional values, and the children are begging for parents to get it right.

#1. No Wonder They're Afraid of Brit Hume
by Ann Coulter
Someone needs to tell the Democrats to stop talking about their families. I know they're trying to demonstrate their "family values," but using actual, live human beings to illustrate the freakish ideas of the Democratic base just makes normal people uncomfortable.
