The type of reduction in abortions that Regis talks about is something to celebrate, not shake our heads that the fight still looms ahead. I dream of a day when it won't matter how legal our courts have made abortion, because the culture is so against it that the rule of law will be a moot case.
How old do you have to be to be president, again?

I did think it was ironic that although Obama referred to America as a nation of Christians, Muslims, Jews, non-believers, etc., only the Christian God was appealed to in prayer.

Erin, You're right. Maybe "porn shop" was a bit of an exaggeration, but not by much... Matt, thanks for pointing out the comments. Frankly, I'm shocked that none of these folks brought up the vulgarity. And I don't think I'm overreacting. Would you want to take your children to a production where one man gropes himself, another moons the audience, and a woman takes off her shirt?

But isn't it hard to gauge how involved Biden will be until he actually becomes the VP? Seems like a bit of a premature assessment.

LeeQuod, You're probably right about the quote. I may have picked a poor example. But as I read the entire article, I tend to believe that Christianity might actually be winning Mr. Parris over, not simply convincing him thatit's good for his proverbial children. Comments like this make me believe he might not be beyond taking his own medicine: "But traveling in Malawi refreshed another belief, too: one I've been trying to banish all my life, but an observation I've been unable to avoid since my African childhood. It confounds my ideological beliefs, stubbornly refuses to fit my world view, and has embarrassed my growing belief that there is no God."
Sorry, everyone, about the confusing 'huh.' I know what the author meant. The 'huh' was intended to point out the beautiful irony of such words coming from an atheist's mouth.
