My money is on Bishop Burke. He has won twice before in a tussle with the “defenders of the faith.”
1. Biondi had to resign from the board of directors of a health organization that performed abortions.
2. Vagina Monologues is now “off” campus.p>Members of the Cardinal Newman society sent emails etc. for five years protesting with no results. In comes Savonarola Burke and things begin to happen. Hallelujah, hallelujah. br> — Annette Cwik /p>
I understand Mr. Neumayr’s frustrations with Rick Majerus and St. Louis University, but his protests go a bit too far. He may not like the fact that this has become a free speech issue, but it is. Whether or not you agree with Majerus and his ideas about abortion, I think he has every right to express those ideas at a political rally. If the church can stop him doing that, what’s next — telling him what political views he should hold?p>Besides, it seems that the church allowed things to get out of hand at this institution, so it is a bit late to suddenly decide that they are not following church ideas closely enough. If the church wanted to have control at these institutions, the opportunity was there from the beginning; the church should have imposed its will here long ago. Once the church allows the secular to take over the running of the institution, it cannot pretend to be upset when the institution begins to exhibit secular traits. br> — Eric Edwards br> Walnut Cove, North Carolina

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
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?
