    the Sermon on the Mount.

    If we look at Jesus' clear instructions--commands if you will--Jesus opposes conservatism on almost every point other than chastity.

    Looking over the whole cycle of life (beyond the horny middle bits), I like to say that liberals can live with Jesus' chastity a whale of a lot easier than conservatives can live with Jesus' sharing, forgiveness, reconciliation, poverty, nonviolence, payment of taxes, humility, non-judgementalness and love of the scum of the earth.

    My answer for the Religious Right is:

    "Creation Science? Great, bring it on!!
    While you're quoting Moses to my kid in biology class, I'll be quoting Jesus to your kid in economics and civics class."

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy....--ML King, "Beyond Vietnam"
