Cheap labor at all costs? We have seen in France what happens.

Thanks.

A quick reading of Pearcey sounds like she is saying that all the ignorance has been on the part of Blue staters, or non-Christians. I'm afraid not.

Feliz Pascuas, Dory. With lawmakers, marching protesters, press and media taking a breather for Holy Week, I am using this open time to read my favorite book.

BREAKING BREAD ON EMMAUS ROAD

“Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, (a stranger) came up and walked along with them, but they (did not recognize) him.

As they approached the village to which they were going, (the stranger) acted as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, ‘Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.’ So he went in to stay with them.

When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.

They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together and saying, ‘It is true! The Lord has risen …’ Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.” -- Luke 24:13-16, 28-31, 33-35, (NIV)

I am always engaged by Luke’s account of Cleopas and his friend meeting with Jesus “On the Road to Emmaus,” identifying with a small band of believers, who witnessed first hand the most infamous of all dreadful Roman crucifixions. This public spectacle would change the direction of world events for at least the next two thousand years; but in a personal sense, it was an agonizing execution – to crush immediate hopes and dreams – scattering a small, already uncertain flock, fearing persecution and death.

Catapulted from Christianity’s blackest abyss – a low rise called Golgotha on the walled city’s outskirts -- into heavens of eternal sunlight through a seemingly chance meeting of Jesus by two men retreating to Emmaus -- the highway encounter not only restores flagging hopes and dreams by reconfirming Isaiah’s prophecy of a risen savior; but it surpasses all that we might expect or imagine by fully opening our hearts and minds.

The scriptures tell us that breaking bread with Jesus is always a gourmet meal – often stale flat loaves and souring wine, a humble value of mere pennies -- paired with priceless conversation, to sustain the body yet lavish the soul.

I remember a family friend – a Child Evangelism teacher who lived to be 103 -- commenting that she would be too humbled, too timid to ask questions in Jesus’ presence. With deference and respect for her, now sharing the same address with both Father and Son, I have prepared many questions for Jesus -- personal friend and compassionate teacher -- when we converse, walking that more distant Emmaus Road together.

Yes, the church kept science alive during the Dark Ages, and pushed it for a while later. The consequent abandonment of science by fundamentalists and other conservatives in Christianity is vexing on that count alone.

But a complete and fair history notes that the church also put brakes on science, whenever it thought that new knowledge might undermine some favored view of the church. Darwin didn't go after Bishop Wilberforce; it wasn't scientists who banned religion in Tennessee in 1925. It's not scientists who ignore the previous history of science being an adjunct to religion, now.
