There’s been a lot of talk about Franklin Graham’s eagerness to rush over to Iraq and bring the newly liberated infidels to Jesus. A lot of talk in some places, at least, but not from the White House, who won’t touch it with a ten foot pole. While it would be nice if George Bush suggested to Graham that he was perhaps being counterproductive, it’s probably for the best that the administration is staying out of this one. After all, if Bush were to say what he really thought about evangelizing Iraqis, I think I’d be sorry he did.

There was a Pagan Pride parade here in Berkeley yesterday. Maybe Franklin Graham should come here instead; I’m sure he’d be welcome.
