In the Colosseum

Stairway to heaven?

As befits the new imperium, this year's christian martyrs convention has proved an irresistible spectacle. Insisting that persecution of christians in modern America is no joke, Rick Scarborough noted that Tom Delay was pushed from power because he was too good a christian.
"I believe the most damaging thing that Tom DeLay has done in his life is take his faith seriously into public office, which made him a target for all those who despise the cause of Christ..."
but there is still hope because
"God always does his best work right after a crucifixion."
One clear achievement of the conference is that it has brought a surprising number of lions back into the arena.

Earlier attempts to convert the lions proved tragically unsuccessful.
