Contradictions

Janie B. Cheaney writes an article pointing to contradictions on the subject of judging in the present edition of World magazine.  She contributes a piece that is part lament and part grief as she notes that we all judge. 
Here's a worthy pull quote:  " He who condemns Hitler is condemning him under the law.  She who condemns Lady Gaga or Sarah Palin - or anyone opposed to a particular moral sensibility - is condemning them under the law, however unorthodox her interpretation of the law may be.  But we will not judge ourselves.  We want a judge for the world, but not for us."

Cheaney reveals a lament of C.S. Lewis that stands naked in the cultural courtyard - logic, they don't teach logic anymore.
