Re: “Altar Boyz tries to have it both ways

Actually, though not Latino, I am gay. Granted, no longer closeted, but gay none the less. I'm also not catholic, fundamentalist or in any way, "inside the religion". I applaud your knowledge of what is going on in the NC Legislature these days - seriously I do. I just don't see the relation to this show. The point of this show was not in the particular scenario, but the human situation and values expressed. I'm sorry you were not able to lighten up as much as me, because you missed a very enjoyable as experience as a result. Likewise though, no hard feelings!

Re: “Altar Boyz tries to have it both ways

This review seems overly harsh. This show was light-hearted, relatively short (in a good way), and the cast was very like-able and could not have been more energetic and enthusiastic. They managed to poke fun without causing any hard feelings or being mean-spirited, and treated the audience to a lot of laughs. If you're the kind of person who can lighten up and enjoy a little good-spirited fun that doesn't try to impress itself, I highly recommend this show.

Re: “Raleigh City Council votes in secret to give Jehovah’s Witnesses $150,000

I am a huge proponent of the separation of church and state, however...

It seems to me that the separation of church and state is only being violated if:
a) religious groups are being given preferential treatment
b) religious groups are being denied the same treatment given other groups.

If it truly is common to give subsidize groups to attract business to the area, then the important thing is not necessarily the identity of the group, but the criteria being used to determine if a group will bring enough business, and to make sure that criteria is used uniformly across all groups that apply.
