“If the experience of those few other states and countries where this is already law is any indication, the churches, and believers, will soon be harassed, threatened, and hauled into court for their conviction that marriage is between one man, one woman, forever, bringing children into the world,” wrote the archbishop.

"Everytime I've been in an interview or had any kind of intervention, I've always done it with my uniform on," he says. "Not because the uniform is central to who I am. The uniform identifies my profession and what I do."

Planned Parenthood must account for its disregard for the law if it wishes to retain state funding
Planned Parenthood claims to be a “trusted health care provider,” but the AUL Report clearly shows that there is little to trust about Planned Parenthood. Even so, the Report only scratches the surface. Congress should use its power to investigate Planned Parenthood futher and determine, once and for all, if it deserves our support, our loyalty, and our money. Until Planned Parenthood answers for its behavior, the surprise is not that the people of Indiana, Kansas, North Carolina, and Texas want to take away their funding, but that Planned Parenthood has not already been stripped of taxpayer dollars throughout the nation. Slowly but surely, Americans will become aware of how little Planned Parenthood deserves our trust, our respect, and our tax dollars. It is time to consider if you really know about Planned Parenthood.

So the main question for Episcopalians this day is: how many of you are genuinely disturbed and upset by Bishop Jefferts Schori's actions in accepting as priest an admitted (but prevaricating) pedophile?

For the first time in decades, America is on net losing, not attracting, growth capital.
Much more worrisome is that Americans are taking their investment dollars abroad at a faster pace than foreigners are bringing capital to these shores.
