of hours of testimony in the hearings for Alito. It’s humorous listening to the differences between the R’s and D’s. The R’s paint everything rosy, joyous and righteous, the D’s paint everything dark, mysterious and just plain wrong. Sucks having to hear Teddy pontificating about anyone’s ethics.
I do think he’ll be nominated and do hope that he ends up being a middle/right justice. He seems to have a gentle spirit – if it were me, I’d be inclined to tell Teddy to step out and have another bottle or two of gin before trying to match wits.
As a single issue person for the most part (abortion), I hope that the government is limited in it’s funding and endorsment of abortions, by law, by elections, by whatever. I do not think that the mission of the church is to stop abortions – it is to change hearts. Changing hearts will stop abortions. I found an excellant treatise on this subject in my electronic library by a Presbyterian pastor in New England but it is copyrighted and I’m not free to post it. He walked through an outline of why Operation Rescue should not be affiliated with Christianity and I think he made a very good case. As much as I abhor abortion, it would be far worse to live in a “religious” state, controlled by someones interpretation of the Bible, Talmud, Koran or philisophical sayings.
So, on to the business of changing hearts…….now where the heck did I leave my club????
