Keith Olbermann: Death of Habeas Corpus


If you think the certain sects of the Christian faith are a bit too fascistic when it comes to same-sex marriage or abortion issues, how do you think they're going to react to a documentary set to air on the Discovery Channel this weekend? According to advance reports, the documentary poses the possibility that archeologists may have found the tomb of Jesus Christ and his family - to include a wife and son.
Oh, oh.
While Christian and church groups are already doing their best to get in front of the publicity wave and dismiss the documentary, there is the possibility they could get steamrolled by a story that, if true, could shake western civilization to its very foundation.
Think about it for a moment: What would it mean if all those who were murdered in the name of Christ died on the altar of fantasy and myth? What it would mean is that a lot more would sacafied on that altar because Christians have shown themselves to be able to work themselves into a midieval wrath equal to anything the Muslims can crank up. And you can bet that if Jesus is going down, it won't be without a fight.... I have to hide now, the chorus is tuning up...

"Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle see His banners go!"

So-called 'Christian' conservatives are beginning to express concern that they may find themselves out in the cold during the 2008 general election. That's the story according the The New York Times, anyway.
According to the NYT, movement leaders met two months ago in a Florida resort where they whined about what they perceived as a lack of Republican candidates who are conservative (and crazy) enough to carry their banner and agenda forward in the next election cycle.
