In the same vein, after the U.S. Senate voted to raise the minimum wage in February 2007, the Reverend Jim Wallis announced that “God hates inequality.” Ron Sider’s […]

They’ve learned nothing

Thirty-seven years ago, 7 justices on the U.S. Supreme Court took the issue of abortion out of the hands of the American people and stuffed it in the penumbras and emanations of the constitution.

Honoring the fallen

Amidst all of the media overkill of Michael Jackson’s death, the sacrifices of our military men and women have gotten even shorter shrift than has been typical from much of the media. So, it was refreshing to read this piece in yesterday’s Washington Post about the return of Lt. Brian Bradshaw to the U.S. Bradshaw […]
