    It’s not often my hometown of San Diego gets national media attention. But it is right now thanks to a “controversy” that arose Sunday night when Padres baseball team invited gays and lesbians to the park. San Diego Pride dubbed the event “Out at the Park,” and a few Christians... read on

    A friend forwarded me an e-mail announcing that Ask Deanna!, a gifted from above dedicated lifestyle of empowerment and motivation” channeled through an L.A.-based syndicated advice columnist, is launching a merchandise line Aug. 1.

    Ask Deanna! will sell tote bags, clothing and bumper stickers under a brand called Diva for Christ, because, as my friend noted, “nothing says ‘devout Christian’ like a lipstick kiss…”

    There are people who really like Norman Podhoretz. They’re called security hawks.

    Podhoretz is an intellectual leader of neoconservatism, the political ideology credited with getting the US into Iraq. Last month, he made the case in Commentary for a preemptive strike on Iran. Yesterday he signed on to be an adviser to presidential-hopeful Rudy Giuliani.

    The first, in the California section, reported that the Beverly Hills mayor, a Persian Jewish refugee of the Islamic Revolution, was going to introduce a measure to divest city pension funds from companies doing business in... read on

  • Hillary Clinton on faith

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    July 10, 2007 | 10:05 am

    This is a gripe I will return to throughout the 2008 presidential election, in which hopefuls already are pandering to Americans’ desire to connect religiously with the commander-in-chief (probably because of this). I personally think it is dangerous to put too much stock in... read on

  • Bad to worse for surgeon general nominee

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    July 10, 2007 | 9:29 am

    President Bush’s pick for surgeon general has been getting bashed by the left since the Bible Belt Blogger outted Dr. James Holsinger as having taken a strong stance of homosexuality, particularly its incompatibility with the Bible. The Huffington Post later reported that Holsinger... read on
