An interview with Matthew Fox

Matthew Fox -- Thursday, June 16, 2011

A funny thing happened in Rome. The Catholic Church silenced an outspoken liberation theologian, but Matthew Fox would not stay silent. He left the church and went on to write many books, the latest of which is The Pope's War.

We'll talk about Pope Benedict's new inquisition -- his war on liberation theology and the dumbing down of the Roman Catholic Church

Short Description: 
Welcome to the Machine. The USA PATRIOT Act has been renewed for another four years.

The surveillance state ushered in under the reign of Bush the Younger was given a bipartisan imprimatur in late May when the USA PATRIOT Act was renewed for another four years. Warrantless wiretaps? You bet. Illegal searches of personal and business records? That's just how it is these days, because, you know, terrorism.

It appears that any hopes progressives may have had that President Obama would undo the Bush-era security state are unfounded. Whither from here? Abe and Joe survey the damage.
