A state senator in Alabama says Hurricane Katrina was God's punishment on a sinful part of America.

State Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo, wrote in a weekly column for news outlets: "New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast have always been known for gambling, sin and wickedness. It is the kind of behavior that ultimately brings the judgment of God."

I thought this letter to the Editor in "The Age" (Melbourne) might appeal:

Short and sweet

HERE is an even shorter version of the Bible than that condensed by John Crace ("The 378-word Bible, Opinion 26/9):

After Adam and Eve failed the temptation test, God made Jews his chosen people. As a result, they became paranoid overachievers until Jesus came in to provide non-competitive, huge-gain-for-little-pain equal opportunity for all. Whether being superior was better than just being good posed a problem at polls throughout the ages. After much soul-searching, leaders seeking re-election reached a brilliant compromise. They simply wed Superiority by Birthright to Equal Opportunity. This auspicious marriage led to the modern practice of pre-emptive strikes in the name of both the Father and the Son forever and ever. Amen.

I wish I had the John Crace one.

Free Speech at Dartmouth


This article talks about the backlash when a Dartmouth student invoked Jesus at a convocation:

Free Speech at Dartmouth

Noah Riner wanted to stir up Dartmouth College students with his speech at a convocation ceremony last week suggesting that students’ character matters just as much as their intelligence and their talents, and that the college pays too little attention to that aspect of their development.

And stir them up he did, although not exactly in the way he’d hoped: His focus on the redemptive power of Jesus Christ provoked criticism that he had misused a speaking opportunity he earned by being student body president to proselytize to a captive audience. The incident has spurred renewed discussion at Dartmouth (and in the blogosphere) about free speech and the receptivity of Dartmouth students and others to diverse — especially “conservative” — viewpoints.Read more... )
