The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

ACLU AND THE COUNTY OF THE ANGELS: In all of the sound and fury about the ACLU forcing Los Angeles County to remove the cross from its county seal, no one has pointed out that the goddess Pomona gets to keep her central position on that same seal or even asked why she gets to stay. It seems to me that if the ACLU is going to be consistent about hounding religion out of the public square then it should demand that Pomona be removed as well, lest it appear that the ACLU's agenda is not against religious establishment in general, but against Christianity in particular. I'm sure that they wouldn't want people to think that they are a group of secularist bigots.
