There is a particular danger with a war that God commands. What if God should lose? That is unthinkable to the evangelicals. They cannot accept the idea of second-guessing God, and he was the one who led them into war. Thus, in 2006, when two thirds of the American people told pollsters that the war in Iraq was a mistake, the third of those still standing behind it were mainly evangelicals (who make up about one third of the population). It was a faith-based certitude.

At the urging of friends I've transfered from using Internet Explorer to Firefox and it was about 2.3 seconds after I started using it that I knew I wouldn't be switching back. Tis truly lovely, and this is coming from someone who's not got any real issues with Microsoft products on his machine, whose Windows XP has only crashed at most twice in a year, whose copy of IE wasn't noticeably unstable. Firefox is just better.
