A simple apology: FaithfulAmerica.org--an online community that "believes in the common good and in community... [rejects] a go-it-alone culture that reduces our politics and our personal lives to selfishness and fear... [and acccepts] the separation of church and state, but not the separation of moral principles from politics"--has produced a simple, powerful commercial apologizing to the Muslim world for torture at Abu Ghraib. The spots began airing on Al-Jazeera and Al Arabiya yesterday, paid for by visitors to their site. Donate, watch the ad, or endorse it here. (Via BAGnewsNotes and Cursor.)

Is avarice still a deadly sin? I wonder if Christian leaders will contribute their considerable marketing muscle to Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11--a film described by a Fox News columnist as "a tribute to patriotism, to the American sense of duty  —  and at the same time an indictment of stupidity and avarice"--the way they did Mel Gibson's crucifixion flick?
