For some reason, the most vocal Christians never mention the Beatitudes. But often, with tears in their eyes, they demand that the ten commandments be posted in public buildings. That's Moses, not Jesus. I haven't heard one of them demand that the Beatitudes be posted anywhere. "Blessed are the merciful" ion a courtroom? "Blessed are the peacemakers" in the Pentagon? Give me a break.


Kurt Vonnegut

When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, the call me a communist.
