If you missed Robert Spencer and Sean Bielat on DaTechGuy on DaRadio, wait no longer, listen to it here now.

The Spencer interview literally had people stopping me telling me how incredible he was. I’m going to have to get him back again soon. You can get his book his book Did Muhammad Exist?: An Inquiry into Islam’s Obscure Origins

One of the hardest things in life is to realize not so much that you’ve been wrong, that we’ve been had, so how difficult must this letter been from the President of Notre Dame to send out:

Despite some positive indications, the Administration announced on January 20, 2012, that its interim rule would be adopted as final without change. After an outcry from across the political spectrum, President Obama announced on February 10 that his Administration would attempt to accommodate the concerns of religious organizations. We were encouraged by this announcement and have engaged in conversations with Administration officials to find an acceptable resolution. Although I do not question the good intentions and sincerity of all involved in these discussions, progress has not been encouraging and an announcement seeking comments on how to structure any accommodation (HHS Advanced Notification of Proposed Rule Making on preventative services policy, March 16, 2012) provides little in the way of a specific,

Read that letter carefully, you would not know from this letter how hard Fr. Jenkins played duck on Roxeanne Marino

“She did not realize, however, that several of these organizations also take a pro-choice position This is not her personal position….”

Dodge on the president’s beliefs:

Even MSNBC covered the 10 priests of the CSC objecting to Fr. Jenkins leaked statement suggesting that because President Obama is not Catholic these rules don’t apply is only going to make things worse.

and hide from actions already taken against other Catholic Colleges like Belmont Abby College

At first, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) found no evidence of gender discrimination by Belmont Abbey College… After a few weeks, the EEOC mysteriously reversed course and announced, in effect, that the college had better toe the Administration’s line, or else.

They are now demanding the school go against the very principles it exists to serve.

Yet as with redemption itself, it is not when it takes place but THAT it take place which makes all the difference:

“For if one Presidential Administration can override our religious purpose and use religious organizations to advance policies that undercut our values, then surely another Administration will do the same for another very different set of policies, each time invoking some concept of popular will or the public good, with the result these religious organizations become mere tools for the exercise of government power, morally subservient to the state, and not free from its infringement,” argued Jenkins. “If that happens, it will be the end of genuinely religious organizations in all but name.”

It seems that Father Jenkins knows well the writings of James Madison as well as St. Thomas More.

Of course you have 42 other institutions also in the suit so maybe the extra support helps but then again prayer is all about supporting people doing the right thing.

Two days ago I wrote about the risks of Free Speech and it’s costs. I mentioned Robert Stacy McCain’s multi-part series on the subject, asking how a person convicted of Bombings can draw hundreds of thousands of dollars of support from wealthy liberal organizations to go after conservatives, (strangely for Stacy he doesn’t ask why the conservatives fighting their fight are not worthy of the same support by conservative organizations but I digress).

Today Stacy and his wife & children are in an undisclosed location staying one step ahead of Mr. Kimberlin. As he puts it:

To people trying to guess my destination, good luck. Kimberlin loves to sue people to shut them up, but first he has to find the appropriate jurisdiction.

That’s a brave face and almost jovial face, but anyone who knows Stacy understands the bombs Kimberlin has set in the past and it is that knowledge more than any suit that is keeping him and his family moving.

To my friends on the left who are financing this fellow: Do you have any actual honor left? Have you become so secular, so utilitarian that you have reached this point? I have no problem with redemption and forgiveness, Christianity demands it but the person in question is not behaving in an honorable way, and if you are paying a man so he can force a reporter/blogger, his wife and children on the road to avoid him you have to ask yourself: Have you no decency? Have your totalitarian impulses becomes so strong that this is what its come to?

And Stacy, my suggestion is to re-locate to a concealed carry state or perhaps to the home of someone of Sicilian ancestry, for some odd reason such locations tend to be safer. I can’t imagine why.

Update:
Ladd Ehlinger is a much more worldly man than I

“This is crazy. Does Neal Rauhauser and all these other people really think they can associate with a guy like Kimberlin and ever hope to work in politics again? Not even a loopy Democrat would want to risk hiring someone who hangs around with a convicted domestic terrorist. What the hell are they thinking? Sure you can do dirty tricks – but this is way beyond that.”

True, but this is not politics as usual.

We like to think that in the U.S. of A., we can do politics without degenerating into third-world mayhem. We have political consultants and talking heads. It’s all about polls, the latest meme, marketing. Why, it’s nothing more than Coke vs. Pepsi.

People operate on that comfortable assumption.

But I think this election year is going to be different.

What if the Soros camp knows Kimberlin’s past and present and aren’t bothered by it? Look to the latest mayhem in Chicago; look to who funds the Occupy movement. I think you have your answer. I know I have mine.

Hard-core progressives believe that conservatives are pure evil. Evil! Evil, and must be destroyed. Long-winded intricate essays on Keynesian economics in the Weekly Standard is not going to change that.

And if your opposition thinks and feels that you are evil incarnate, then it will act that way, too.

I’m reading what Ladd has written thinking what is being done to my church and to Stacy and all I can think of is the line from Sahara when Frenchy is shot in the back after talking to the German commander under a flag of truce:

Capt. Jason: Frenchy was right, we don’t know the Nazis

If the left chooses to ignore this and decides to let this stand then all bets are off.

Update 2: Stacy updates the story here:

Convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin on Monday continued his effort to silence those who write about his criminal past by contacting my wife’s employer, claiming that I was “harassing” him. The resulting security concern required immediate relocation if I was to be able to continue writing about the case of Kimberlin, a violent felon, perjurer and admitted tax cheat who is employed as the director of a 501(c)3 non-profit that has collected $1.8 million in contributions since 2005.

Stacy Insists the story is not about him:

it is important to emphasize that this story is not about me.

This story is about Brett Kimberlin, a criminal of infamous reputation whose recent actions indicate that he fears widespread scrutiny. His attempts to suppress the truth have only generated more of the scrutiny Kimberlin had hoped to prevent, so that Monday for the first time his story merited a thread on the political news aggregation site Memeorandum.

Although I agree that Kimberlin is a big story, the primary story and additionally the willingness of “mainstream” left foundations to fund him is a pretty interesting tale…

…but for my money a reporter in America having to flee his home with his family for their safety because he dared to report on Mr. Kimberlin and the mainstream foundations that fund him is a hell of a story in itself, and the disinterest in the media in reporting it is even bigger.

I see Molly Norris all over again.

Update 4:
A whole lot of folks on the Net have discovered this, when will the MSM? Where is Fox? Where is Drudge?
