Unarmed Truth Wins

On January 16, 2006 By

MLK snippet from BSB post:

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant.

My, what Dr. King might say about the events of today…why, oh why do our most important voices always get interrupted while our our most unimaginative rise to the top?

Chopped Parsley

On January 16, 2006 By

I was hoping this would eventually happen. Overstep enough and you are sure to get cut off at the pass. Many in the Ohio blogosphere are commenting on the local pastors who are accusing two local megachurches of illegal activity. Blammo! A Holy War right here in Ohio? Bring it. BSB has more, as does OH02…among others – just hit Lefty Blogs Ohio.

It is really about time that the voices of reason within the community of faith in this state and across the country stood up against the shenanigans of the religious right. I think there […]

Honor The True MLK Today

On January 16, 2006 By

I’d post audio and video, but I’m doing battle with audioblog.com and WordPress’ xmlrpc. Will update with that when I’m able. I had a brief discussion about MLK at the last Drinking Liberally with Jennifer. The main point being how sanitized his legacy has become and how truly radical his notions were…beyong racial tolerance, which is about all he gets credit for nowadays. She was recommendeding a book, which I must ask her about again the next time I’m in the library (damn you Dead Guy Ale!).

Then I found this article. Wow. Sums it up mighty well I’d […]

Well, once again we try to get one of what must be dozens of “Al Qaeda’s #2 Man” only to come up 18 civilians short. Damn. Least surprising thing is Trent Lott is OK with this:

And Sen. Trent Lott added, “I would have a problem if we didn’t do it.”

“There’s no question that they’re still causing the death of millions of — or thousands of — innocent people and directing operations in Iraq,” said Lott, a Mississippi Republican. “Absolutely, we should do it.”

MOST surprising (or maybe least as well, hell) is Evan Bayh is also OK […]

Canadians Get It Right Again

On January 16, 2006 By

OK, Last bit on football and then I can move back to politics…been a nice little break though. I just read the best article yet on the bizarro-world game that was the Steelers-Colts matchup yesterday. It comes, surprisingly enough, from our friends in Canada.

The best use of sarcasm:

Game over. Or so millions of football fans thought, trapped as they are in their unoriginality. But not referee Pete Morelli. In a bit of “thinking-outside-the-box” brilliance, Morelli went under the hood, eyeballed the replays, examined his conscience and made a bold decision, all for the love of the […]
