From Where I Stand by Joan Chittister, April 6, 2004:
"By implication, the rest of the unspoken message is even stronger yet and, worse, more dangerous. To say "down with liberalism" is to imply, as well, "And by the way, down with the Enlightenment, down with the French Revolution, down with the spirit of the U.S. Constitution and down with the entire spectrum of political history that struggled over time to secure the foundations of Western democracy.'"
Heck yeah down with the French Revolution. Joaniekins is crazy, if she fancies herself a nun she should remember that the nuns didn't live through the French Revolution.
My new policy is to only bother to show people one really stupid thing in a column. After that they should know better than to keep reading.
