Terminological inexactitude

The Rev. Robert Johansen’s well-written brief for the feed-Terri forces has been rocketing around the Right Blogosphere and right-wing talk radio.

Alas, a Blog demonstrates that Johansen appears to … ummmm … depart from the facts … at several points.

Would it be rude of me, on this Easter Sunday, to remind Fr. Johansen and his allies of Lev. 19:11 and John 8:32?

Perhaps it would. Never mind, then.

Update: Broken link fixed, thanks to no fewer than seven (!) alert readers. One of them says “We have to get you a proofreader.” Ummm … I think we just did.

But I’ll try harder in the future. Honest.
