For some reason, as I was browsing through the headlines, it seemed like things are just upside-down in our world right now. Here are just a few examples.
1. A conference sponsored by a Catholic institution 1) was all about evolution, and 2) specifically excluded intelligent design proponents from participating. What’s up with this? It looks like the Pope needs to put some papal smack down on some of his underlings.
2. I actually found myself agreeing with Tom Harkin (which usually never happens) that hog odor is something that deserves more attention and research as it is really a public health issue. I think anyone who has lived by or driven by one of these operations would accept that as fact. However, I think that we’ve gone this long dealing with the stink, so I’m willing to wait a while and deal with the economic crisis our country is facing before spending taxpayer money on this issue.
3. Sarah Palin, who most people considered to be the new face of the pro-life movement, just picked a woman to be on the Alaska Supreme Court who previously was on a board for Planned Parenthood. Apparently, she only had two choices and neither were great, but good grief… I know that there will be people who claim that Palin picked this woman simply because she was a woman. I sincerely hope that is not the case. Although, if these allegations do arise, I certainly hope that all of Obama’s appointments undergo the same scrutiny. I’m sure a Democrat would never appoint someone to a position because of their gender or race.
How incredibly discouraging. I think I need to take a break from the news for a while. Barring me getting ticked off over the week and needing to vent, I’ll be back on Monday.
