"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Why Didn't McCartney Sing This At The White House?
"A lot of political nonsense in the air." - Wild Life lyrics, McCartney
Unfortunately one of my favorite musicians/song writers has turned out to be an old fool, praising Obama as a great man and defending him against his critics while entertaining the First Family the other night at the White House. If anything, Paul McCartney ought to have spoken out against the way British Petroleum, the White House, indeed the world is handling the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Where is the world's elite who cry foul because of so-called global warming? Where are the Nobel Laureates, the celebrities, the politicos, the scientists, the intellectuals?
McCartney has completely sold out.
No one gets a free pass on this one. Why weren't safety measures in place in the event of a worst case scenario such as what is happening now? Global warming my ass.
