Seven Annoying Headlines

My Yahoo news headlines from just a minute ago:

Jackson jury has verdict
Judge to announce verdict in Michael Jackson child molestation case at 1:30 p.m. PT
• Guantanamo report details interrogation tactics
• White House rejects call for Iraq withdrawal
• Immigration law used as anti-terrorism tool
• Vatican gets victory in fertility referendum
• Ford recalls nearly 260,000 trucks, SUVs
• Katie Holmes converting to Scientology

Sigh after sigh after sigh.

We should be comforted that our ick factor is nowhere near as great.

pleased that the UUs, for all their faults, have never sued a nonprofit for cult survivors into bankruptcy.

Or, alternatively, sued a dangerous organization that advocated kidnapping and unlawful detention, not to mention what we now call "highly coercive techniques", against alleged cult members.

The final Scientology lawsuit came after several other major judgements against CAN for their involvement in unlawful actions. They were a dangerous organization, and I'm glad someone took them down. Would have been nice if it hadn't been the Scientologists, though.

Oh fine. I'm also please that we UUs have never sued anybody else into bankruptcy.
