Why Seperation of Church and State is a Good Thing

Can you imagine a debate over whether women should be allowed into a baseball game in this country?  It’s happening right now in Iran.  Wacky.

I don’t think I’ll ever be able to understand why people follow leaders whose objectives are so nonsensical.  For the sake of logic, I almost hope its because the ayatollahs have the guns – nothing else makes sense!

On a positive note, the Catholic church may be thinking a little straighter, finally, by acknowledging the rubbers may be OK in some circumstances.  These stories are probably trial balloons to see which way the wind is blowing.  With any luck, it’s the first in a series of reforms this backwards organization badly needs.

I was running with a friend from work the other day and when we were done we happened upon another fellow, who’s known for his neo-liberal beliefs, haranguing a fourth buddy of mine about the mighty W.

It’s impossible for me to defend Bush – his record speaks for itself, I’m afraid – but I had to laugh at the Clinton-ite’s sudden outrage at a corrupt leadership.  Amused, I remarked to my running budding that even liberals have a purpose, namely they keep people like Jimmy Swaggart and Pat Robertson out of power.

For that, my illogical, left-brained friends, I thank you.  If only the people of Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Indonesia, among others, were as fortunate.
