Look at the kicker in that ad: “Deliberate discrimination against Christians is now the official—or unofficial, but actual—policy at an increasing number of publicly funded colleges and universities.” It’s like the copywriter caught himself lying and then convinced himself what he was saying was basically true anyway, all in the space of one sentence. Welcome to the age of creeping mendacity, where telling the truth is less important than getting people to believe what’s true. It’s a subtle difference—so subtle you can use it to trick yourself. Today is Friday, and the truth is too important to let other people sort it out for themselves. Won’t you conflate “correct” and “honest” with me?
Hello from Portland, where Combat! blog fulfills the venerable office of Date to the Wildlife Conference. Portland is great, although as a consequence of certain astronomical irregularities it is not technically on the part of the Earth illuminated by the sun. You can get Thai food here, however, and that has made all the difference. Also, everyone is gay. Many of them are in heterosexual relationships, but you can pretty much tell by their dress and mustaches that they are part of the gay agenda. That thing is everywhere, as the American Family Association reminds us with their warning against Mix It Up For Lunch Day, a national plan to get kids to sit with different kids during school lunch.
