In case you don't know, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" is a Christian allegory by C.S. Lewis.
5) Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich advising Democrats to make evangelical Christians the issue in next year's presidential campaign: "Democrats should hold evangelicals accountable for what they're trying to do in our nation's schools -- promoting the teaching of creationism, demanding school prayer, pushing 'abstinence until marriage' programs and opposing sex education. This is all about imposing their religious views on our children."
Hmmm. Which worldview dominates the nation's schools? One reason evangelicals are active is that educational lobbies have already imposed the teaching of macro-evolution and situational ethics. Reich went on to say that abortion is about "religious liberty." Don't abortions deprive unborn children of any opportunity to gain liberty or pursue happiness?
4) While we're fretting about evangelicals imposing their views on children, how about the story (told by education expert Joanne Jacobs) of Robert Wright, a San Jose middle school teacher, who found in his school's dumpster "a discarded copy of C.S. Lewis' 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.' It's a nice hardbound copy. ... Inside, it is stamped with this message: 'This book has been replaced for one or more of the following reasons: Material is inaccurate. Does not meet district standards. Stereotypes gender or culture.'"
1) Amid the excitement surrounding Saddam's capture, one important story did not get much attention in the United States. The (London) Telegraph headline told the tale: "Terrorist behind September 11 strike was trained by Saddam." The gist: Iraq's coalition government has uncovered documentary proof that Saddam was kept informed of the progress of Mohammed Atta, the Al Qaeda mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks against the United States.
Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti, former head of the Iraqi Intelligence Service, sent Saddam a handwritten memo on July 1, 2001, that summarized the "work programme" Atta had undertaken in Baghdad and noted that Atta's " extraordinary effort" demonstrated his ability to lead the team that would be "responsible for attacking the targets that we have agreed to destroy."
Smoking gun, yes?
