Scary stuff ... if you don't think the Christian Right is dead serious about winning the "Culture War", this should enlighten you.

A historian of Christian martyrdom attends a Christian Right strategy session in the "War on Christians."

Busy Busy

Spent most of the day in downtown Indy on a [programming] client site. Normally not noteworthy, except that I happened across a copy of the Indianapolis Star at lunch that advertised a lecture tonight at Butler University by Dr. Steven Pinker, author of The Blank Slate. So I stayed later than planned at the client's, and managed to make the lecture.

Fascinating material - I was quite skeptical of his premise at first, but must admit that he's quite a compelling speaker. It's Nature vs. Nurture all over again, and the pendulum seems to have swung back to Nature, for the time being.

I'll have more to say about this later, but right now I've gotta get something to eat and get some sleep.
