The Tower of Babel

Lesslie Newbigin called it: "The first great imperial project for human unity, which ends, as all imperialisms, in confusion and alienation."

I'm starting to think Fr. Pfleger was right about one thing, at least: America is the Greatest Sin Against God. The Great Satan, the wounded snake. Like Britain before her, like pagan Rome before that.

"I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Go out from her, my people; that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and the Lord hath remembered her iniquities."

And the smoke of her burning shall rise up forever...
