First Freedom First

That's a new organization formed by a partnership of the Interfaith Alliance and Americans United for Separation of Church and State. I suspect I will view them very much like I do their parent organizations, agreeing with them most of the time and disagree once in a while. And as usual, I'll be happy to express both points of view.

Atrios was getting some heat (most of it misplaced) for saying he was sick of the Christian whiners on the Left who make up stories of their martyrdom in the Democratic party—the same nonsense I was snarling about. While Atrios can say he's not hostile to religion—he's just apathetic—I can't, and…
On a lower post, Jen Shroder seems to think that I've blocked her from commenting. She's wrong.Ed, why does it appear that I'm blocked from an Aug 11 page where you make a lot of ridiculous claims? I have no idea, but it's not true. It's not possible to block someone from commenting only on one…

They cover the full spectrum of issues, including Dominionism, LGBT issues, education, ID, 'faith-based' funding (and, Ed, surprised you have yet to comment on the book by David Kuo which strikes me as the final nail in Republicans hoping to keep control of Congress), reproductive rights, etc.

Much worth knowing.
