hypocrisy etc

Christopher Hitchens writes an excellently outraged article about the religiousness or otherwise of the latest Supreme Court nominee here in America. He makes the good point that because she attends an evangelical conservative church she should either be a committed Christian whose life’s work is to convert people (he doesn’t mention that doing good deeds etc might be part of the deal too, but then neither do many evangelical conservative churches) or she’s a big fat hypocrite. Either way, not ideal.

In other religious political observation news, I saw Jon Stewart on David Letterman’s show over the weekend. Stewart was talking about the Bush response to Hurricane Katrina and pointed out the absurdity that the President’s main strategy to make things better appeared to be his National Day of Prayer. Especially as three days later Hurricane Rita moved in. So that would have worked out pretty well then.
