Commentaries worth reading

James Kennedy
God: Nowhere prohibited, everywhere present

The 10 operative words in the First Amendment could not be more clear: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion." Let's see. These Ten Commandments displays are not laws – they have no legal force. They are not a "religion" – there is no Ten Commandments religion. The Ten Commandments are revered and followed by at least two religions – Judaism and Christianity. And the mere display of the Ten Commandments cannot possibly "establish" this non-religion.


Ann Coulter
Fool Me Eight Times, Shame On Me

He is David Hackett Souter, only the most recent reason Republican presidents — especially Republican presidents named ‘Bush’ — have lost the right to say ‘Trust me’ when it comes to Supreme Court nominations.

The other reasons are: Earl Warren, William Brennan, Harry Blackmun, John Paul Stevens, Sandra Day O'Connor and Anthony Kennedy.


Shadi Hamid
London attacks: turning point for US Islamic community

Where we had slowly become desensitized by the endless reports of slaughter in Iraq, 7/7 came unexpectedly, forcing our community to finally confront an uneasy reality. On that day, something clicked inside me and so many other Muslims who, in focusing primarily on the threat to Muslim civil liberties, had not paid enough attention to the threat of religious extremism in our own communities.
