It wasn’t 6 hours after the IPCC published its report to policy makers that the Catholic USCCB issued a communique that essentially endorsed everything the IPCC underwrote. For an organization that cannot even agree to change two words of the Scared Liturgy as mandated by the Vatican without “undertaking years of study,” this was quite surprising. The Evangelical Left appears to be no different; maybe they’ve just grown tired of “fishing for men”; it is so much more exciting playing the role of a prophet.
In both of the above cases we’ve seen an attempt by so called people of science to use persuasion that is anything but scientific. The Catholic Bishops’ Conference, once dubbed the “Democratic Party at Prayer,” appears to endorse any program that will enlarge the state. They even equate their endorsement as advocacy for the poor. The Evangelical Left goes a step farther it seems, and it appears that they’ve readjusted their eschatology a bit. We are going to Hell, and it has nothing to do with the Forbidden Fruit and everything to do with our use of fossil fuels. One would think the advanced minds of the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) crowd would be terribly embarrassed by this new association with Men of the Cloth.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
