    The media and the do-good-kiddy-clubs all explode in paroxysms of righteousness any time a public figure inadvertantly insults one of the protected minority groups, but nobody ever demands an apology when a secular celebrity demeans Christianity. That is because Americans view Christianity as a problem, an exercrable obstacle to America's progress. the rest of us, including many serious Jews, view Christianity as part of the solution to America's problems. We think "progress" is the problem, and what we need is a return to traditional morality. That is largely what today's civil war is all about, and Ronstadt has shown us which side she fights.

    I've always found hypocrisy especially galling.

    There is such a thing as a christian, even a fundamentalist one, who doesn't infringe upon the rights of others.

    The only way to get your minority protected now is to sign up for the ACLU and get an interest group, then sue everybody who ever said anything bad about any of your group. Christians not only have already taken the brunt of the blame for oppression, but most have the decency to realize that lawsuits are not the answer.
