Scooter Libby is facing one of the most fearful things of modern life: a lawsuit brought by the United States Government. The government can and will spend millions of dollars to convict him. He will probably spend everything he owns to defend himself. If he is found innocent, the government will not issue an apology, nor will he be compensated. Your tax dollars and mine will pay for Mr. Fitzgerald’s adventure.
John C. Danforth, an Episcopal minister and former Republican Senator from Missouri, has weighed in on Christian political involvement in social issues. His first broadside came by way of an article he had published in June 2005 with the title “Onward, Moderate Christian Soldiers.”
The men and women of "Monster Garage" turn ordinary vehicles into extraordinary monster vehicles. The show’s driving force is Jesse James, who’s great-great-grandfather was the outlaw’s cousin. All who work on the show are very talented. I would guess that many of them had difficulty sitting still in school and keeping their mind on their work. (How many times have you heard that from a boring teacher?)
Noah Feldman, author of Divided By God: America’s Church-State Problem – And What we Should Do About It, makes some valid points in his article “God, government and you” that appeared in USA Today on October 17, 2005.

It is easy to understand why the human rights idea came into popularity in Christendom. It is simply that men living in Christendom enjoyed that "blessed liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free" to such an extent and over so many centuries that they found it easy to take for granted. Liberty, instead of being recognized as the gift of Christ and the reward of Christian justice, was something that would easily be seen as an end in itself.
