Life, Liberty, and Property

CNN's coverage of Charlie Hebdo was poor because of differences in our languages.  Wolf Blitzer used reasonable terminology when he said the US is "scouring" our databases for information on the two perpetrators.

Barbara Starr and all other reporters I heard reported that we were "scrubbing" our databases which means that we were trying to get rid of bad data.

My ex-father-in-law is a theist and I learned from him that "Secular Humanism" is the Devil Incarnate even though I didn't know what any of that meant.

The French don't think that highly of any religion.  Is there a word for sacrilegious in French?

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary includes only three antonyms for sacred:  nonreligious, profane, and secular.

As a Libertarian, I say we should focus on Government's core functions of protecting our Lives, Liberty, and Property.

Government funds should not be expended on protecting "In Your Face Protesters" such as most of the Political Correctness advocates, Al Sharpeton, and radical feminists.

If we can't communicate mundane stuff like looking through our databases, how can we hope to understand important stuff if there is a God?
