Quote of the day

“So far this decade, 34 men in Texas, most of them black, have been exonerated by modern DNA testing. They spent 10, 15, 20, even 27 years wrongly imprisoned for rape before being released. No such remedy is available for Cole, a bright, likeable young man who got along well with everyone and who, in the spring of 1985, had his whole life ahead of him.” – Wade Goodwyn

Quote of the day

“A giant of Old School Presbyterianism at Princeton, Charles Hodge, was one of the few Presbyterian controversialists to turn their guns on Darwinism prior to World War I. Hodge published his What is Darwinism? in 1874, three years after The Descent of Man was published, and argued that Darwin’s system could not be reconciled with biblical Christianity.

Most churchmen, however, took a far more prosaic attitude. In the early period, it must have appeared far from clear that Charles Darwin‘s theory of natural selection would come to be hegemonic among scientists, as refutations and alternate systems were still being proposed and debated. Then, when evolution became widely accepted, most churchmen were far less concerned with refuting it than they were with establishing schemes whereby Darwinism could be reconciled with Christianity. This was true even among prominent Old Schoolers at Princeton Theological Seminary such as Charles Hodge’s successors A. A. Hodge and B. B. Warfield who came to endorse the ideas now described as theistic evolution.” – From Wikipedia’s article on the Fundamentalist-Modernist Controversy

“When a nation permits parents to kill their own offspring with impunity, that is anarchy at work.  When the same culture criminalizes selling two-gallon flush toilets or Happy Meal toys, tyranny is at work.” – David Shedlock

“Gingrich’s lead caps an amazing comeback he’s made over the last 5 months.  In June his favorability nationally with Republican voters plummeted all the way to 36/49. Now he’s at 68/23, representing a 58 point improvement in his spread since then. As recently as August Gingrich was mired in single digits at 7%, and even in September he was at just 10%.  He’s climbed 18 points in less than 2 months.” – Tom Jensen, Public Policy Polling

Gingrich takes the lead

“What you need to understand is that the welfare state creates entitlement syndrome. That’s not news to anyone, conservatives in the US claim it all the time, but in Greece, we really see it in action: Despite state bankruptcy just months away unless they receive a bailout, no-one sees the need for entitlement and public sector pay cuts. Neither do the greeks seem to understand that they themselves are guilty of causing the mess that they are in” – John Gustavsson
