Blogging Forecast

Light to moderate blogging.

More pressing needs at the day job are consuming what little free time SpinDaddy has, so bear with me here. I will clue you in on what I'm reading right now, but longer essay type posts will have to wait for right now.

I am reading the first in a three part series in the WashTimes By Julia Duin about religion and secularism. The first installment includes some interesting history on the founding of the ACLU. Conservatives don't mockingly refer to it as the American Civil Liberals Union for nothing. A small excerpt here, read the whole thing.

". . .Roger Baldwin, a member of the Industrial Workers of the World, a Chicago-based radical labor group, founded the ACLU. . .' From the beginning, they were tied to the politics of the left. It was hard-core left. They justified Stalinism.' . . . Mr. Baldwin visited Stalin's brutal police state in 1923 and 1927 and praised it in a book, 'Liberty Under the Soviets'. . ."

That's odd, to read most MSM accounts, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, or Michael Newdow are just your run-of-the-mill erstwhile aetheists being oppressed by Bible thumping boors. It's just an ironic coincidence that all these aetheist activists happen to be communist apologists also.

Hmmm. No, there's no leftist agenda here . . . -SpinDaddy
