Doce me faces voluntarem tuam quia Deus meus es tu

Check out this AP article regarding Alan Keyes' potential entrance into the Illinois Senate race. First, it's exciting to think that Keyes might find himself in the Senate next year. However, it's the description of Keyes' conservatism that I find troubling. The last sentence of the article makes mention of his opposition to "abortion and gay rights." A-ha! The assumption here is that marriage is not an institution; just a civil right. Secondly, Keyes "thinks that parents should be able to send children to schools that reflect their faith."

Of course they should. Keyes view here is in line with millions of Americans, but apparently our AP correspondent wants to imply that Keyes is an outsider and firebrand for opposing the monopoly that the Department of Education currently holds over the parents and students of this country.
