Light or Darkness?
flip the switch

God is just friggin' everywhere in the press lately. Now Miers' benighted religious views are touted as a substitute for actual qualifications. More here.

The Atlantic has an extended profile of theocrat judge and "religious conservative in excelsis" Roy Moore, who is running for governor of Alabama. And in an article about James Dobson's enormous clout in Washington, the head of Focus on the Family complains about the marginalization and persecution of Christians in America.
    ''There is no question that the beliefs of conservative Christians are under attack," Dobson told the Globe. ''Any conviction founded on religious faith is vilified; any stand on absolute truth is denigrated as old-fashioned at best, or reminiscent of the Taliban at worst; any view out of lockstep with the left's agenda is met with anything but tolerance and acceptance."
Given the utter lack of power on the left, this can be taken as still another indication of the maximal nature of the Christian right's ambitions. After all, the Nazis continued to complain about the all powerful Jews right up through the holocaust.

But some people continue to fight against Bush even from beyond the grave.

Check out this obituary of a Wisconsin man:
    Theodore Roosevelt Heller, 88, loving father of Charles (Joann) Heller; dear brother of the late Sonya (the late Jack) Steinberg. Ted was discharged from the U.S. Army during WWII due to service related injuries, and then forced his way back into the Illinois National Guard insisting no one tells him when to serve his country. Graveside services Tuesday 11 a.m. at Waldheim Jewish Cemetery (Ziditshover section), 1700 S. Harlem Ave., Chicago. In lieu of flowers, please send acerbic letters to Republicans.
