Douglas Kmiec resigns
And learns a little lesson about post-modern America. What is post-modern America? Well, post-modern is all the values commonly known as liberal without the shards of goodness that liberal values dragged along from a more noble past. Those values include, but are not limited to, ideas of tolerance, diversity, open-mindedness, and respect for differences of beliefs. Note how seldom we hear those anymore. They crop up once in a while, usually regarding topics where the nation is still leaning against the post-modern viewpoint. But in areas where they are gaining steam, like gay rights, gender equality, or abortion and birth control, don't hold your breath waiting for proponents to call for open dialogue. And that goes with religion, too. Especially that pesky Christian religion that the post modern movement hates with all the white-hot fury of a thousand suns.
