The headline on the Drudge Report really didn't do justice to the content of
the Homeland Security report issued by its new director, Janet Napolitano,

movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of
particular religious, racial or ethnic groups) and those that are mainly
anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local
authority, or rejecting governmental authority entirely. It may include groups
and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to
abortion or immigration."

Single-issue? That should read a "crackdown" on Evangelicals and Catholics who

Declaration of Independence, to organize, educate, protest, and vote on the
basis of the moral principle upon which all other moral principles are based.
Will Fr. Pavone's picture soon be hanging in the local post office? Or Fr.
Euteneuer's, or Judie Brown's, or Congressman Chris Smith's.
The post office wall could become the place d'honneur during the Obama years.
