What Does it Take to Stun a DNC Crowd Into Silence?

Unbelievable. Sr. Prejean, the heretical nun who denies the Catholic teaching that capital punishment is justified under certain circumstances, and not only befriends brutal murderers but also tries to claim they never committed crimes they clearly committed, yesterday spoke to the DNCC, yes, the Democrat National Convention Committee, and even this adulatory crowd of infanticide supporters responded with:
nothing but a stony silence, however, when she questioned the basis of the biblical crucifixion story as a "projection of our violent society."
"Is this a God?" Prejeans asked about the belief that God allowed his son, Jesus, to be sacrificed for the sins of humanity. "Or is this an ogre?"
Nice. Hey, even folks who don't shy away from a party that believes infanticide is just fine might draw a line at doubting the crucifixion of Christ and comparing God to an ogre.

She went on to criticize the alleged use of torture by the US, and repeated her oft-stated view that capital punishment is itself a form of torture. That part of course, roused the crowd into standing ovations.

I'm still looking for her entire address. Stay tuned.
