Don’t Build the Ground Zero Mosque

August 17, 2010

Freedom of religion, bad taste, national and local leaders gaffing or retracting or opposing.  New developments, twists, turns, breaking news, clarifications, jokes.  This seems like an August slow news-type story sometimes. That’s not to say this isn’t an important issue.  Whenever Americans get to a point where our rights and freedoms begin to infringe on [...]

Human Rights Problems in Iraq and Afghanistan

August 17, 2009

No one really expected that when the Taliban collapsed and Saddam ran into his spider hole that Afghanistan and Iraq would instantly turn into Jeffersonian Democracies with full citizenship rights and beer pong being played at a co-ed colleges.  It would take some time, some prodding, some leading by example (that is, unless you’re a [...]

Catholics Down in Worldwide Count to Muslims

March 31, 2008

Roman Catholics: 1.13 billion  v.  Muslims: 1.3 billion  I have a really big problem with this Reuters story about the above statistics.  The Vatican, using hard to verify UN statistics, indicates that the world’s Muslim population has eclipsed Roman Catholicism as the world’s largest religious sect.  I’m not concerned about nor am I playing a “my religion’s [...]
