    Excellent breakdown of Justin Katz’s opinion piece in the Providence Journal. Unfortunately there will be more space on those pages for Katz  now that Ed Achorn  has been made editor of the Journal’s editorial pages.

    The other night I read the piece by Justin Katz at Anchor Rising/The Current, the same one that appeared in the Journal today.  I wanted to follow up on a news story in the Journal about the conference this month at the “Portsmouth Institute”, curious of what the Portsmouth Institute was all about. My search led me to Katz’ blog. I didn’t know they had Robert George there a short while ago.  Wow!

    ” The General Assembly and governor have no power to change the will of God”

    That is a direct quote from Justin Katz.  In Iran, this might not appear to be such an audacious statement.  And at the Providence Journal?  Wow!
