"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Passion demonstrates the fault line This Gallup poll (via PoliPundit), showing that 45% of Americans have seen or plan to see The Passion of the Christ, and 92% of those who have seen it rated their impressions as "favorable" (72%!) or "very favorable" (20%). Contrast that with the bitter reaming it's been getting from critics, and you see a very severe disconnect between real people and the media elite. You would think that this would bother the elite somewhat, but I don't think it does.
This is such a massive cultural phenomenon, I wonder if it will have any effect on the presidential race. This upcoming Easter, the first one in recent memory when Jesus Christ will actually garner more attention than eggs and rabbits, will provide Sen. Kerry ample opportunity to put his foot in his mouth.
