By excommunicating a nun who aided a desperately ill woman in obtaining a life saving abortion, the anti-female Roman Church that helped put Hitler in power and invented anti-Semitism has shed the moral legitimacy necessary for its existence. Reform is not sufficient because it is not practical to sufficiently transform the dictatorial Vatican.

Yet again conservative Christians strategically complain they are the majority victims of discrimination against the faithful, when it is the nontheist minority that is actually victimized by faith-based bigotry.

Why is John McCain taking such big risks in his final effort to reach the White House? That he spent his formative years as a military pilot has a lot to do with it.

Little looked at so far is the role "First Dude" Todd Palin will play if he and his wife make their way to the White House. Could be pretty scary considering the male head of the household doctrine Palin's church preaches.

SHARE Wednesday, January 2, 2008 The Real War on Xmas
The religious and social right want us to think that it is liberal secularists who are waging war on the holy day. As the release of this year's disappointing retail sales figures help reveal, the real enemies of Christmas piety are the allies of the right, the merchant capitalists, as well as their loyal helpers, the American consumer.
