  2. Flags in Church
    Sent August 27th 2014

  9. Correcting the Record
    Sent July 1st 2014

    Correcting the Record Many news stories followed the announcement by the Supreme Court of the /Hobby Lobby/ decision. One story on NPR characterized the outcome as a victory for religious groups. I assert that it was only a victory for far-right Evangeli...
