The soul has greater need of the ideal than the real for it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live

who really wants to create death panels? and religious love.

And the Catholics still aren't getting it:

At the Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, Osama bin Laden appears on the bulletin for Sunday's service.
A parishioner made the prayer request for the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks on America.
Louis Pizzano Sr., a parishioner at the church, said he's against praying for the Al-Qaida leader, who was killed by U.S. Navy SEALs more than two weeks ago.
"I just don't think it's right, I really don't," Pizzano said. "I think what's happened to the American people, what he's done, what he was planning to do and because we killed him, it doesn't stop there."
The request has created a division between some parishioners.
Vince Stankey said he has no problem praying for the terrorist leader.
"The way he was trying to prove his god to do killing, I can't approve of that," Stankey said. "But I have mercy on his soul and I have to pray for him."
Pizzano said he will not pray for bin Laden on Sunday. He said he has a better idea.
"Let's pray for our soldiers that are over there, not for somebody that caused our soldiers to go over there," Pizzano said.
The prayer service is scheduled for Sunday at noon. 

And another thing:
"We are becoming a country that not only supports perversion, we cheerlead for perversion. A day against homophobia and transphobia -- what they're saying is Judeo-Christian morality is the equivalent of bigotry and irrational fear, and that is a false message. What they're saying essentially is if you are a Christian, a Muslim or a Jew, and you oppose sexual perversion or gender confusion, you are a hater; you are a bigot. This is the liberal message." - Porno Pete LaBarbera, denouncing Hillary Clinton's statement in support of the International Day Against Homophobia.-via Joemygod.

And so it goes:
