we're really good on the justice part

Clueless in Seattle:

Jesuit Father Patrick Howell, Seattle University's vice president for Mission and Ministry and chair of the university's Catholic Character task force, said that Thursday's lecture was one component of a larger effort on the part of the university to strengthen its Catholic culture.

"This is part of a continuing conversation that we need to have around the Catholic character of Seattle University, and we're very committed to that," Father Howell said. "The Jesuit commitment is to the faith that does justice. I think we're really good on the justice part; what we need to do is much more exploration about faith and its grounding, especially in the Catholic tradition."

Try this idea. Why not bring in an order of Roman Catholic priests who are, you know, trained in that faith thing?

    And what is the penalty for violating this particular law? It might actually be worth the fine. Will a person be held accountable by God for violating an unjust civil law?

    C'mon now, Gil. Surely you must remember Patrick Henry's great line: "Give me non-hydrogenated oils or give me death." No? Our would-be nannies have just decided that death is cheaper, that's all!

    I know liberals don't think the same way I do, but it seems to me that trans fats are better than no fats at all.
