of note...

couple things:

first, i've been avoiding the pope story, but this is a pretty good summary. [you can find the full text of the address and apologies at zenit.] i mean, i think it's a mistake - not everyone understands professor language, and you just can't say things like that. whether you're visible or not, i don't think you should say anything that could seem to be such a criticism of another religion. but i have some faith in benedict. i get frustrated when people doubt the intentions or motivations of church leaders too much - i mean, they do pray sometimes. they are at least sort of moral.

i know this is an op-ed, but have we seriously not considered talking to the taliban?

“We’re human beings, with the blood of a million savage years on our hands. But we can stop it. We can admit that we’re killers, but we won’t kill today.”
i like this, and i don't even like star trek.

as always, i'm interested in faith and politics and what's going on with this. dear relgious groups, please please be non-partisan. please? and this is both interesting and, well, potentially inflammatory. take it how you'd like...
