I've listened to DeSimone a couple of times (very short times). One unfounded opinion after another. As to Fitz, he's one of the few sane people in Tucson. jg
Tom, as long as you're going after the Villa statue, why not fight to re-name Columbus Park and other references honoring the one bastard that was worse than Villa?
Last year I ranked the two best Burgers in Tucson in my SouthernArioznaGuide dining review section. Zinburger was #1. However, I hear the Ritz at Dove Mtn now has a burger place that may be the most expensive. Neighbor Roy & I will check it out sometime in the next few weeks. Last year we discovered that the most expensive lunch in Tucson is at the Ritz ... no surprise there.
Does anyone understand Steve's use of the term "dichotomies"? Where is the dichotomy in being secular (respecting the freedom to believe or not as one chooses) and support for the Constitutional principle of Separation of Church & State? Steve, how is it that "secularists are misguided"?
Steve also misses a rather important point. Secularism is a philosophy, not a religion. To be a religion, it would have to include some belief in the supernatural, which it does not.
Steve claims that we secularists don't like God because we don't want to submit to His authority. False. We simply don't see any empirical evidence of an all-powerful, benevolent creator of the universe who interacts in human affairs and protects the innocent and vulnerable. Because people like Steve do, we think of them as gullible and superstitious.
The members of CFI of Southern Arizona don't really care what others believe. None of our business. Until they make it our business by forcing their irrational Christian worldview and Bible morality on the rest of us through law and public policy. Jim Gressinger
