A few links

Some stuff I saw around today that may be worth a read ....

U.S. Bishops: The Great Inertia - Eugene Cullen Kennedy

The Patriot Act and bipartisanship - Glenn Greenwald

How Power Corrupts - Jonah Lehrer

The Flight of Curiosity - Justin E.H. Smith. At the resumed NYT philosophy blog, The Stone, he writes, Must one be endowed with curiosity in order to become a philosopher? Today, in the academic realm, at least, the answer is surely and regrettably “no.” .... I'd bet the same is even more true in theology.

And finally, I still find it just weird that in the UK, bishops are 'spiritual lords' who vote in Parliament ... Lords Spiritual could be reduced to 12 bishops
