Kent: No, I think the real question is whether they must stay poor. In America, poor doesn’t have to be a permanent state. Who are the “privileged” and what exactly do you want the privileged to do? I grew up in a trailer in a lower middle class family, but I’m also white. Where do […]
The difference is whether you think Ramsey is talking to poor people or talking to rich people about poor people.

I have to say I didn’t see much I disagreed with in the Ramsey article.

Hi Jake, We’ve been hard on RCCers in the past but we (and by we, I mean Josh) are mellowing and the last one left moderately unscathed. Kudos on the Pope. From what I’ve seen, I like him (as much as any Baptist is allowed to like the pope). So what about this Batman vs […]
