BBC:Hard, hard left

What is with the British Broadcasting Company? Once one of the premier news organizations on the planet, now simply another hard left mouthpiece. Sad, very sad.

The Episcopal Church: Hard Left.

Couldn’t say it better than this:

As Bishop Moore’s theology professor pointed out long ago, the Episcopal Church has always been a big tent that shelters free thinkers. This is what makes it attractive to people like me. But it’s one thing to tolerate dissent, and something else again to have a leadership incapable of using “evil” in a sentence without also including the word “simplistic.” Episcopalians seem to do a good job of reaching out to the American Muslim community. Perhaps the denomination should consider creating an outreach program for conservatives. If nothing else, the effort would sensitize church leaders against using certain buzz words that conservatives find offensive. (“Texan” employed as a term of insult should head the list.)

In the meantime, it is easy to see why the predicted resurgence of church membership in the wake of 9/11 may not materialize — and that, even if it does, mainline Protestant denominations will be the last to realize any lasting gains. We can best honor Bishop Moore by recognizing his passing as the end of an era. The gospel of Social Action had its exhilarating moments — especially during the heyday of the civil-rights movement — but it soon degenerated into a mélange of warmed-over Marxism and Euro-complacency. We Christians who drifted away from the church in the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s certainly don’t want to be told that we must repudiate our strengths and learn to identify ourselves as victims. Been there, done that.

This Isn’t the 60’s Anymore

Rockford College, Rockford Illinois had quite a commencement Saturday. Here’s the transcript of Christopher Hedges’ speech, with boos inserted. You can also hear the whole spiel, if you want. He was booed off the stage, rightfully so.

If you choose to listen, listen to the end. The garbled comments at the end are worth hearing.

The next time someone around you sneers at calling North Korea part of the Axis of Evil, send them to this site. Hitler could have taken lessons from this bunch.

I would seriously draw your attention to today’s InstaPundit, by Glen Reynolds.

Every link is worth a look.
