Bravo...well done.

In Defense of God (Article) - 1/3/2004 1:23:15 PM
Chris, I think the issue is that government is binding on all the people, whether they believe in one, thirty, or zero Gods. Any promotion of a deity or any specific religious point of view, such as displaying the ten commandments in a "public place," i.e., on government property, has the force of government on every person, whether they agree with that point of view or not. In the interest of governmental fairness to all, religious promotions should be displayed in the homes and churches of those who agree with the promotion, not on government property common to us all. In my opinion, the quickest way to lose freedom of religion (unless you happen to be in a majority religion) is to destroy the barrier between church and state. Dominant religions have a history of seeking power and privilege through the agency of the state. There could easily come a time when Christianity is not the dominant religion in the U.S.A. (Some other religions are growing at a much faster rate.) Perhaps you would want to consider what your opinion might then be on the issue of separation of church and state. Best wishes for the new year. Leland

The President and Saddam Hussein (Article) - 10/9/2003 11:04:24 AM
Not only that, Mr. Erickson, but Bush called his comments on uranium to be flawed. [Though the truth is it was an out-and-out lie.] He also has had information about Saudi Arabia and their apparent terrorist ties deleted from a CIA report. [Hey! What are allies for?] As for anyone who speaks against him in Washington? Why, it just so happens that their spouse is exposed as an undercover agent and thereby readied to receive a bullet in the head. No need to appoint a Special Counsel to find out who did that, Bush assures us. [Besides, Clinton's lying about his inappropriate sexual misconduct was a far greater threat to our freedoms and worth every cent of the millions U.S. taxpayers had to pay for it.] And now, J.R. - I mean, George W. - [Excuse me. He often reminds me of Larry Hagman's character in the series 'Dallas' of years past for some reason.] - says that the leak will probably never be found. [Sigh.] Of course, we must continue to have our young people die in this liberated country. [Albeit, many Iraqis - Shiite and Sunni alike - consider it be an occupation.] And have the UN take care charge? Impossible. After all, only a handful offered any assistance so we, alone, will handle things. But we still need their money not to mention their troops, young folks to die to secure Iraq where we have effectively crushed terrorism. [Even though no apparent ties of it have been found linking Saddam Hussein.] As for WMDs, JR's latest self-appointed mouthpiece, Mr. Key, says that - though none yet found - the "intent" was there. [Only problem is that UN sanctions from years past made it impossible for Saddam to do what Key says he "intended" to do.] JR now says, too, that - shucks - he had an Iraqi Plan in place all along. [We were just too stupid to realize it.] As for Israel, sure Sharon should fight back with all his military might and even shell Syria. [Talk about an unique 'peace plan.']I know. I'm a "liberal" [even though I do not advocate abortion] because I disagree with the self-righteous followers of a man who is the first President EVER to start an unprovoked war and then kept changing the reasons he declared it in the first place. I guess that's just my "conservative side" showing again. By the way, nice essay, Mr.Erickson. [Just don't get to be too well-known though or your first born may soon be stationed in Baghdad - just like those of Bush and all his buddies in Congress are. All one of them.]
