o-bla-di, o-bla-da, life goes on

I've heard this one several times lately among TV talking heads:
Conservatives spend their time hunting traitors;
Liberals spend their time hunting heretics.

Which goes along with Charles Krauthammer's saying:
Conservatives think Liberals are wrong;
Liberals think Conservatives are immoral.

Then there's this oldie-but-goodie:
A conservative is someone who wants to use his money to control your morals; a liberal is someone who wants to use his morals to control your money.

The Good Book

I was surfing some religious websites recently -- specifically, the sites of some Christian colleges and seminaries -- and there I met up with the confessional statements of a number of them. Many of the evangelical Protestant folks place a very high value on the Bible, affirming it to be inerrant ("in the original autographs" -- which we don't have).

I've always felt uncomfortable with this. Collapse )
