A few weeks back I outlined several intractable problems in the Near East Muslim world for which Israel is not responsible despite continuous criticism to the contrary. Muslims themselves, I wrote, have made and continue to make choices that ke… Read full post »
If I criticise the Church when that's warranted (and I've offered my share as to its mishandling of its pedophilia scandal) then it's right I acknowledge its positive moves. I've written, for instance, that the Church has been among the most consistent a… Read full post »
Ideological purity on the Right has found common expression in, among other ways, numbers of Republican governors turning down federal money. Florida Governor Rick Scott, for example, spurned hundreds of millions for high-speed rail and now that money h… Read full post »

How Step Out of This Tea Party Muck Having Waded In So Very Deeply?

This may be all I know, or ever need to know, about life:
I'm proud, yet again, of Maryland, my adopted home. Last month I reported that it joined eleven other states in looking forward in its sane and decent approach to immigrant children here illegally: if their parents pay state and federal tax… Read full post »
Imagine my surprise when I read the other day that the Church now blames me for its priest-pedophilia scandal. Me 'n the 600,000 others who attended Woodstock. And who favored tie-dyed tees. And rode that train, whether or not we… Read full post »
My son, 21, is a Black man; naive would be the very last adjective that would fit. When he was first allowed to go to the mall with his crowd, his remarkably mixed, integrated, suburban crowd of White kids, Latinos, Asians, and other Black… Read full post »
It seems as if the death penalty's dying that old, slow death-by-a-thousand-cuts.
. First, Britain and India, our chief suppliers, have refused to export the five poisons we use… Read full post »
The original churches were not, of course, Rome's. They were what historians call house-churches. Mainly run by women, they began to dot the Mediterranean soon after Jesus' murder. This was well before there was anything that could be… Read full post »

Florida's fast becoming the cutting edge of the war on the poor. Not only has it recently severely cut unemployment insurance but it will now require all persons on welfare--all-- to submit to drug tests regardless of whether or not they are suspected of ill… Read full post »
Take a moment today to celebrate a powerful, though widely unknown, life. Most of you have heard of micro-grants, usually small sums by Western standards, money as low as $100 given most often to women in the Third World to start businesses and overcome pov… Read full post »
Time was when the most common discrimination African-Americans faced from banks and real estate agencies was red-lining. The disgraceful and nearly ubiquitous practice furthered segregation well after it was formally outlawed in housing, education and employment.… Read full post »
The war on the poor always blames its victims, just as wars based on deep seated fears and prejudices have always done. Those most responsible for our economy having fallen off that cliff in late '08 after two presidential term… Read full post »
