On Sunday, two days before the 2004 presidential election, a former pastor told Pasadena’s All Saints Episcopal Church that “good people of profound faith” could support either President Bush or Senator Kerry. But he also said that Jesus would have told Mr. Bush that the preemptive war in Iraq “has led to disaster.” Six months later, the IRS told All Saints that its tax-exempt status was in danger.

Does the Governor Walk the Green Talk? ()
At the United Nations conference on climate change today, Governor Schwarzenegger said it’s time for rich and poor nations to resolve their differences, get beyond the Kyoto protocols and take action to solve global warming. He said that California is “on the cutting edge of what is to come,” with efforts that are “revolutionary… historic and transformative.” He said the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards are “beyond anyone else’s dreams.”
