A common thread — a Christian nation at work

Posted By on Mon, Nov 7, 2011 at 7:43 AM

Just noticed a thread in the morning posts:

* Preacher's book offers Bible-based support for whipping children as young as six months old. Three dead at hands of parents who have book.

* The leader of a program for needy children, named for a biblical teaching, "Second Mile," is accused of sexually abusing children in his care.

* A Republican congressman is cool to providing federal support for food for the poor, though not tax breaks for the wealthy.

* Pre-schools run by Republican legislators use tax money to support Bible teaching.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
